You wouldn't believe how simple this was to fix!

I considered doing the complete removal then re-installation but what put me off that was it wanted to remove gnome for some reason. Even removing just some of the components dragged gnome with it, and I am not keen on using linux without a desktop environment.

I had a spare log-in profile  already, and LO works in that profile. The thought of using one log-in to access software installed on a different log-in just seems too prone to messing up, but at least I knew there was an option there.

In the end, I thought about it and realised that it is only templates that are the issue here, so let's examine the templates issue.

I looked at the Path options in Tools-Options-Libre Office- Paths. It appears that for some reason LO had added my home directory as a path for templates, as well as the default path. I deleted the home directory, recreated the template folder in my config folder then copied my templates back in and now it's all working.

Thank you for all the suggestions

Hi all

So I thought I would upgrade from Ubuntu to 18.10 to 19.04. The normally easy, no dramas upgrade was far from ideal.

After several hours of fiddling, my tech expert son found some obscure gnome settings got wrecked, and once we trawled through various log files and found the  offending files, all was well.

Except Libre Office.

Everything important seems to work unless you try to use templates- either through the opening screen or through File- Manage Templates. At that point the program freezes. Eventually a message window opens to say that "Libre Office 6.2 Writer is not responding" with options to Force Quit or Wait.

I have tried the usual things:

 * remove configuration files
 * re-install
 * downloaded the DEBs from the Libre Office web site and tried to
   install over the existing installation.

So far nothing has resolved the issue.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank you
