Hi :)
I don't mind getting 2 copies of so many emails.  After clearing 20 emails i feel better than after 
clearing just 10 and almost double-clicking the delete key is not really tough for me.  I know it 
does infuriate some other people though.  My main worry is if no-one on the list sees my replies so 
i usually quickly glance at the  "To" and "CC" fields to see who is getting the response.  

Regards from 
Tom :)

Hit "reply all."

This is the only list I belong to that requires that selection. Then, the 
person you're replying to gets two emails, unless after hitting "reply all" 
you go into the "To" box and manually delete the extra emails.

I am sorry, I responded (again) only to Mr. Davis and lot the list.
There seems to be a trick to it ...

Tools - Options - Memory

and increase the various sizes.  I have it set at something like 
20Mb/object and above the "Use for LibreOffice" set a LOT higher than i 
expect the final documents to be.  Around 50Mb might be a good idea.

However, crashes are usually a result of Java behaving badly. You can 
probably switch Java off completely or just switch it off for LIbreOffice

Tools - Options - Advanced

The top tick-box lets you switch it off.

The next most common cause is some problem in your User Profile so you 
might want to temporarily "get back to factory defaults" by renaming your 
User Profile

Well, I run LO on Win XP SP3, 2.5 GB RAM
Turned off ALL other software
Set memory per object to 20 MB
memory for LO to 50 MB
changed version of JAVA
turned JAVA off

so far no improvement.

reset user profile? not yet. Iif I do that, I suppose I loose all my
styles, templates, autotext, macros etc., right?
Or will they remain available?
Anyway, that is an adventure I may try when I am at leisure after dinner
or so ...

One more thing: the exact same thing happens exactly in the same way on
three different computers.
Two running Windows XP, one Win 7.
Can this still be problem with the user profile?

One person found that upgrading to a more recent version of LibreOffice 
solved a crashing problem

There is another rare and intermittent bug to do with images. It's been 
around since OOo 2.(something) but is very rare and difficult to pin-down 
because it is not easy to reproduce conditions reliably.  Best 
work-arounds are
1.  Switch off the auto-back-up!  But then you have to keep making sure 
you do save regularly and fairly frequently, perhaps incrementing versions 
occasionally to ensure you can easily go back to a previous state.
2.  to keep a copy of all the images in a sub-folder in the same folder as 
the document, or elsewhere that is easy to get to so that if images do 
vanish from the document then it's easy to replace them
3.  Work on your document locally and then upload back to the network or 
Cloud or usb-stick or where-ever you keep it.

     You could try version 3.6.6 or 4.0.4.

     Do you have enough ram? On what OS are you working?
