Hi Ian,

I am assuming this is an existing document. Not new? Any document in

No problems in previous versions I assume!

with one of the 4.3 releases that was just before the 4.4 release but i
didn;t take note of the version.

Any other info would be useful to track this down. 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 died

I 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

to be fixed in Always possible that it's regressed though.
It was all text but when copying from teh webpage it may have included some

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


I think i'll just have to keep my eye on it and see if it happens again

THanks for your reply
