Hi mxkuzn,

I can verify your findings. I am running LO on Windows 7 64bit.
I tried creating a 25x40 grid of filled circles, 0.3cmx0.3cm. This
worked, and I could save. I copied this grid onto a new page, so 2000
circles, and I could save. I copied this onto another new page, so 3000
circles, and when I tried to save, LO crashed. Consistantly, saving at
or above 3000 circles crashes LO, and recovery does not get it back. I
can create more than 3000 circles, I went all the way up to 20 pages,
so 20000 circles, and apart from each successive paste getting slower
and slower, up to almost 10 seconds per paste, there was no sign of
crashes, until I tried to save. This is a relatively fresh, and
default, install, and I haven't played with any memory settings. I have
no idea if this would work for me on previous versions of LO, I've
never tried anything like it.

To give you some idea, think of the games of go or checkers.
I play Go. I was wondering what you are trying to do; I can't think of
anything Go related that would require that many items.

Just reset Draw template to default one, opened new file and created
1000 0.12" filled circles (changed the filling color from the default
one). Arranged them into rectangle 25x40. 

Copied and pasted the whole thing 2 times - that's 3000. It worked.
Pasted one more time, tried to save. Got "LO has stopped
working" (from Windows). Successfully recovered (all 4000) circles,
was able to save and reopen the file correctly. 

Opened new Draw page, copied and pasted another 1000 (5000 total
count), tried to save - LO died with the same Windows message.
Recovered, and the new page was not there.

I have Thinkpad W510, Windows 8/64, fully updated. LO Version: Memory settings:

Number of steps - 25

Use for LibreOffice: 200MB
Memory per object: 1.0MB

File size (compressed) 30K.

And, once again,I started having this problem in and it became
strangling after the latest windows update.
