Hi :)
Crashes are not normal and shouldn't be happening so often.  If they happen at all then it should 
be rare and should be due to the user doing something dumb that they notice and makes them think 
"oops, didn't mean to do that" or deliberately killing the process.  

My machines are lower spec and don't suffer from crashes like this.  

It might be good to post a "bug-report" but please use one of the drop-downs to make it clear it's 
a "feature request" rather than a real bug.  The real bug is whatever is causing the crash.  
Regards from 
Tom :)

It would seem that crashes like these are inevitable. However, the 
results may not need be.

Is it possible to force a system check during loading of files above 
default that causes the error to generate a message "Running out of 
memory, Document will stop loading:
Press this button to re-allocate your current memory setup under Tools - 
Options - Memory"?

Thanks in advance

Also try

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

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?

Good afternoon
I do have an "ordinary" ODF Writer file, about 14 MB in size because of
about 60 monochrome pictures (writing a book).
This file is usually open in "print preview mode".
When I try to switch to "web layout", so that I can see more text
without all those funky margins and spaces between pages,
LibreOffice ( ALWAYS crashes "due to an unexpected error" as it
calls it.

Is there anything I can do about this VERY annoying behavior?

Thank you.
