This has always kind of bugged me, but how come LibreOffice locks down whenever a save cycle happens? It doesn't really matter when saving takes a blink of an eye, which is usually the case for smaller documents, but it becomes very inconvenient when saving much larger files, regardless of the application used (although I've had the most experience with Writer).
What is it that happens during a save, and how necessary is it to lock the user out while it's being performed? Is there anyone else concerned with this, or is any work being planned towards alleviating it? I'd like to again point to Google Docs as a really good example of how saving can be done; you can work and save in parallel, without any loss of functionality or performance.

hi, I take the film "Matrix" seriously. There is reality and there is illusion. If you switched off the power supply to your computer, you'll have (1) Microsoft OS (2) LibreOffice (3) any other program not closed properly (4) ourself all screaming! We think we are saving the file we are editing. Sorry! we are not! We are saving temporary program maintained file (file segents). And the program has to replace your original file with this temporary file\file segments. And (I think) this is reason also for the dreaded "Do you want to recover your documents" message if save process is not complete.
LibreOffice is made available by volunteers around the globe, backed by a charitable Foundation. Please support our efforts: Your donation helps us to deliver a better product!
