|0014467||Scribus||General||public||2016-12-14 01:01||2020-04-05 19:37|
|Target Version||1.5.5||Fixed in Version||1.5.6.svn|
|Summary||0014467: 1.5.x slows down immensely (with high CPU usage) when opening 1.4.6 file|
|Description||Have a 147 page 20MB .sla file - no pictures, but lots of groups (a custom daily planner). Just upgraded from Scribus 1.4.6 (scribus PPA), where the document works fine, to Scribus 1.5.2 (from scribus-ng PPA).|
Reason for upgrading (besides liking to keep updated software) was that group/ungroup and deletion of groups takes a LONG time. Based on some bug report discussions, it looked like the scribus-ng release might help that. However, it doesn't seem to work well since I can't open the file.
OS: Ubuntu Gnome 16.04.1
CPU: i5 2.4GHz
|Steps To Reproduce||Open file saved in Scribus 1.4.6 in Scribus 1.5.2. Not sure if it is for every file, or just this one.|
Not sure how to upload the file, as it is too large for the file upload.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Since you haven't shared the SLA and....
there are known issues for large files and...
issues also opening older versions of 1.4 on 1.5...
try testing by opening the SLA on 1.5.3svn (the latest SVN version)
Of course, backup your work first. Also devs don't recommend using 1.5.3svn for production.
||Is there a good way to share the SLA?|
||OK. I uploaded it to our website: http://solidrock-ent.com/2016%20Daily%20Planner.sla|
Devs, I can confirm the issue on 1.5.3svn r21650
@SRDC It actually opened. So it's not an 'infinite loop'. It took ~ 8 minutes or something. (I have 4 cores and 16GB ram)
||OK. I thought I'd left it for over an hour, so just assumed it was 'infinite.' Thanks. What should I do now? Just stick with 1.4.6 for that document?|
@SRDC for now stick to 1.4.6
Let see what the devs say when they're online.
||Alright. Thanks for your help!|
||Moving to 1.5.3 Roadmap to get some attention|
2016-Daily-Planner.sla.gz (318,118 bytes)
||I've attached the sample SLA to the ticket (compressed with gzip)|
||I've tried to open this file and it takes about 2 mins, but Sribus uses only 1 core of my 8 here. It also seems slow when panning.|
yes, scribus is single threaded (and will be using only one core).
while taking advantage of multiple cores would be welcome, i think that the slowness during the import should be solved in the current code... but only if it also affects the loading of the files once it has been saved in 1.5.x format...
is there a tag for sample files that can be used to test the performance of scribus?
