While testing some lengthy Writer documents in NeoOffice on the latest test version of macOS Monterey, we found that NeoOffice would sometimes spellcheck a large block of text on the application's main thread and that would cause NeoOffice to become unresponsive until spellchecking on that block of text finished.

NeoOffice 2017.28 Professional Edition:
