I am sorry to read about the problems with saving files. However, could you please provide more information:

  • LibO version

  • OS

  • what exactly do you do when you save a file?

I'm using LibO Writer version (Build ID: 400m0(Build:2)) on Kubuntu Kernel Linux 3.2.0-49-generic and KDE SC Version 4.8.5(4.8.5). I seem to have the problem with larger files (1M or more) when saving as either .odt or .doc. The .doc file usually ends up as a 1.5K file which is not readable, and the .odt file usually ends up as a large file which is also unreadable. I haven't tried to dump the file in hex.

As it concerns Linux I cannot help you but surely one of the Linux specialist will look into this matter. A last hint I can give you is to try to re-set your user profil. This is in case of very strange behavior sometimes the solution.

I also occasionally get the error: Error in writing sub-document content.xml. This is with LO on Kubuntu 12.04. Could be related to bug 60769, which was reported fixed in 4.0..2.1
