On writer when I try to load a rtf it hangs. The version is 3.5.2 under Ubuntu, and the red bar gets to about 80%. The doc loads fine with word in another PC. Any ideas? It's only one page long. I added a missing font and nothing changed.

Before giving up on LibreOffice could you both consider installing the "conservative" version 3.4.6 instead?

Apparently this is a known problem https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=49968

Confirm this bug with any rtf-file with LibreOffice version 3.5.3.2. Should I replace libreoffice by openoffice. Seems like openoffice opens this files without issues.
