I had a go on Fedora/Cinnamon but I can't break it.it doesn;t happen every time so unfortunately i can't reproduce at will. under the 4.3 version i was actually copying text from a browser to paste into the exisitng Writer document. But on 4.4 i was copying the text from ODT and the creating a new ODT document to paste into, it created the new empty text document but that was as far as it got before it diedI don't know if it's related, but there was previously an issue where pasting content including images from a web page sometimes froze LibreOffice while it downloaded the images. If the images were large, or you're on a slow connection, it could take a while and appear completely unresponsive. That was discussed on bug 60415 <https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60415>, and seemed to be fixed in 22.214.171.124. Always possible that it's regressed though.
It was all text but when copying from teh webpage it may have included some thing i didn;t see. But the latest times were from Writer to Writer with no images
If the pasted images are linked to the original content (so that they automatically update), it might also connect back to the original web site when copying that content from one document to another. Perhaps check Edit > Links on the source document and try breaking any links listed there before copying (unless, of course, you want the images to remain linked so that they automatically update in your document when they change online). If this is the problem, and you want to avoid the delays when pasting content from a web page, you can use Edit > Paste Special > Unformatted Text to get the text, then individually copy any images you want and use Edit > Paste Special > Bitmap (or anything other than one of the HTML or Unformatted Text options). The text and images won't be formatted as they were on the original web page, but that's not always a bad thing as you'll be starting from a relatively clean state to format as you like.
I'll give that a try if it happens again Thanks
CheersI think i'll just have to keep my eye on it and see if it happens again THanks for your reply
