Hi Developers

Can charitable soul involved with threading in Calc spend a couple of
minutes to write an outline of what we should look to write a section on
the topic in our guide and Help? Just the outline and some pointers for
our investigation.

We think this feature is a plus, but it is not clear if and how an end
user will benefit.

Thanks in advance

I am considering the changes necessary to upgrade the Calc Guide to 6.4.

One of the issues we chose to ignore in the 6.2 Calc Guide was
multi-threading. The 6.2 Calc Guide contains the following mention of it,
when describing the Tools > Options > LibreOffice Calc > Calculate page:

CPU threading settings section
Enable multi-threaded calculation controls the use of multi-threading /
parallelism, which can be used to speed up LibreOffice Calc calculations on
computers with multiple processing cores.

That’s it in the Calc Guide, and I couldn't readily find anything in the
Help files.

Is there a slightly more detailed explanation anywhere which might
enlighten me further, so that I can in turn include a little more
information for the user?
