I experienced something similar with inserted images with V4.X of LO. I
would happen - sometimes - that inserted images would be replaced by an
empty placeholder (like an empty frame). The only way I thought I could
use to recover was to erase the placeholder and re-insert the image
until I realized that this would occur when:
- the image was anchored to a paragraph or the page
- the size of the image was not margin-friendly (maybe just a bit too
wide or too high for the page)
Since then, I always anchor images as characters and make sure they fit
in the margin area of the page and the problem has stopped happening.
When I got the "empty placeholder problem", I would change the
anchoring and the size of the picture and it would re-appear.
I don't know if formulas will behave the same way, but you could start
Good luck.

Hi all,

I've read this quite a few times in the Internet and it bothers
for around 3 to 4 years now, since I decided to move from LATEX to

Formulas get randomly erased.

There are two scenarios:

1. Create formula, exit it, formula is displayed, everything seems
But wait, I forgot something, so let's reedit it. Double click and 
- the
formula editor shows an empty pane. Nothing there. Press Escape,
hopefully cancels. Man, no chance, the formula is gone.

2. Edit a document with formulas. Come back later and some formula
shown as empty boxes. Double click on the empty box, empty formula
editor. This happens randomly to random spots in the document, no
were in the dox you are currently working

As for (2): Now guess what if you have a doc containng around 500
filled with formulas! Of course I use sections, where sub dox are
in. But this is annoying to say the least!

Any ideas how I can help the devels to find the related bug?
