I have two documents, one 65 pages and another 15 pages, I need both open at once, and they are using up a ton of CPU. I saw that there is no more Memory option. What can I do?

Libre version OS: MacOS 10.13.6 RAM: 8 GB

First you could provide more information if you want to receive help. Version of LO, OS, amount of RAM and such things.

Are these simple text files or have you any images? If so, how many and what size and type?

No images, just text files!

You may find is relevant. I assume you are saving the document as a .odt file and you do not have any unusual autosave settings. On my Linux system Tools> Options > Load/Save > General.

Uninstall LibreOffice. Yesterday my Mac crashed. I had LO 6.0.something installed, so I upgraded to 6.3 (latest) Today, same problem: 100% CPU, spinning disk with two open spreadsheets. My Mac started to go sluggish again, and what do you know: LO was using 80 Gb of memory (I have a 64 Gb Mac but even that can be brought to a halt). I need to work, so exit LO.
