My computer will not save a Libre Word document. No drop down showing where I am saving it. Just refuses to save as either save, or save as. What could be wrong? [closed]

Everything seems ok except nothing happens when I click file save as. no drop down box. problem is the document is large and has never been saved so a re-boot would cause me to loose it. I cut and pasted it to several other Libre word new files and they won't save either. I don't have anywhere else to save temporarily so I can re-boot.

What is your LibreOffice version (Help | About) and what is your operating system? Do you use native LibreOffice or some kind of LibreOffice fork like LibreOffice Portable? Do you get any error message or any other indication... How was this document opened? Provide more info please.

In addition to what @L-user mentions, what is a "Libre Word document"? Please indicate the file format i.e., ODT, DOC, DOCX.

I would also wish to know where the original document came from. It may be read only. If it is read only then the Save As or Export Document should have worked.

Maybe the only thing you can do is to transfer it to a Google Doc until the issue is resolved. Right now, my PC isn't saving my most recent saves of work when it comes to Libre docs either, and this only seems to be a problem with Win 10. Do you have Win 10? It could be causing problems.

I'm having the same problem and I have Windows 8.1. I have my files on an external hard drive because I don't want them online.
