Yes. That's an infamous bottleneck. Calc's row height adjustment on
file load is pretty darn expensive. It basically re-calculates the
heights of rows in all rows regardless.
The xls import used to suffer the same thing, but we've replaced that
with using the row heights stored in the xls directly, which
coincidentally improved the layout preservation with Excel documents as
well (and loads much quicker).
In theory, we could skip that for xlsx too, by doing the same thing we
did for xls since xlsx too store the row height with the document.
Not sure if ods stores row heights, but if it does, then we can do the
same thing for ods too. That's worth a check.
As an aside, dbf and csv import had the same issue, but I've reduced the
need to re-calc row height to only those rows that really need
re-calculation. Needless to say that resulted in a much faster import
especially for large dbf and csv documents. Much faster.
