I have been using LibreOffice and never had any problems. However, since about two months I have re-installed the OS of one of my computers and of course also the programs that I need, including LibreOffice.

All works just fine, except Libreoffice, which freezes suddenly while I am using it. It happens using Writer or Calc and at unknown time. Simply the program becomes unresponsive and when I try minimizing it in the task bar and showing it again, I can only see a white window with the title. The only way to continue using LibreOffice is killing "soffice.bin" from the task manager and re-launching it.

This is very embarrassing because I use LibreOffice for work tasks and I lose many time with lost progress or continually saving the document I am working on.

The computer is running Arch Linux and, when this happens, the other programs opened continue working well and there more than a half of the RAM free and the processor load is minimum.

Thanks and sorry if there are mistakes in the test. I'm spanish.

Pls tests if modifying OpenGL option in Menu/Tools/Options/LibreOffice/View, does anything, if not test with Menu/Help/Restart in Safe Mode. By the way there is a Spanish Ask

I tried disabling OpenGL ald Hardware acceleration and restarting in safe mode and still the same. Sometimes it takes longer before freezing, and sometimes it is almost instantly. I dont know what to try.
