This is a duplicate of bug #45458 and seems related to font cache initialization.
Please follow up there.

Closing as a duplicate.

I thought I was having the same problem after a fresh install -- I tried to plot a histogram of a vector w = [1 2 3 3 2] and it just seemed to be taking forever.  I did some googling, found this page, and was about to log a "me too" bug when I noticed the histogram had finally drawn itself.  Now, new histograms are drawn instantaneously.  Maybe parts of the graphing library only build themselves lazily?

Does it resemble bug #45458 ?
How long is "forever" ? > 1 minute? > 5 minutes? > 15 minutes?

Similar reports have been posted on the bug tracker and in the help mailing lists - have you looked there?

I just changed from windows 8.1 to windows 10.
Witth Win8, Octave (GUI) was working perfectly.
Under Windows10, I just installed JRE and subsequently octave-4.0.0_0-installer.exe.
Ovtave gets stuck, when I run a simple plot.
There is no error message, just the busy indicator forever...

I hope this can be fixed or worked around.

kind regards, Peter
