 Hello, dear Libreoffice developers.

Well, we are not developers. This is support mailing list, from user
for users.
But other than that, you have come to right place, as this list is a
place where questions should be asked.

Can you solve that? How can I open several documents in separated
independent processes?

This is caused by know design flaw of LibreOffice. Only one instance
can use one profile directory.
That's why if Writer crashes, it takes down all other LO windows.
That's why if you open formula editor window in one Calc, you can't do
anything in second Calc window.
That's why you can't simultaneously edit documents and convert files
from command line.

As for last one, it was reported here:

You can subscribe to this bug and wait until it is resolved. If it did,
your issue might be fixed as well (depending on which approach LO devs
will choose there).

But correct fix to that issue would require huge refactoring of
suite internals. So you'd better be patient.

As a workaround, you can create several profile directories and run LO
with command line switch that forces it to use specified directory for
profile. This way you can fool LO to open few different instances, each
working independently of others.
The only problem here is copying your default profile directory (which
contains all extensions, settings, database connections etc.) to these
different directories. And then merging changes made in other instances
back to default one. That is, if you care about your settings.
Best regards
