I am sorry, I responded (again) only to Mr. Davies and not the list.
There seems to be a trick to it ...

and increase the various sizes.Â I have it set at something like
20Mb/object and above the "Use for LibreOffice" set a LOT higher than

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.Â
Best work-arounds are
1.Â Switch off the auto-back-up!Â 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
2.Â 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.Â Work on your document locally and then upload back to the network
or Cloud or usb-stick or where-ever you keep it.

Â Â You could try version 3.6.6 or 4.0.4.
