I can edit a document and print it, but when I try to save it, nothing happens. I would guess this is some kind of permission issue, because I have similar problems with Gimp, but I have no idea how to fix this.

Hi, I experienced the same...not good...but try this out it appears to do the trick.

Set Full Disk Access for LibreOffice manually in Catalina in System Preferences,
Click Security & Privacy,
Select Privacy, On the right click 'Full Disk Access', Click on the '+' to add a new application, select LibreOffice, Exit for settings to take effect.

If the answer worked for you please click the check icon on the left and vote the answer up.
