Just installed a new version of Linux Mint on my computer, along with LibreOffice Every time I copy and paste more than a sentence or so in a LibreOffice Writer document, the cursor freezes (stops blinking) and the entire system freezes with it, requiring a nasty reboot. I never had this problem on my Lubuntu system. I hope someone can help. I can't use the program for word processing any longer the way it is.

Sorry to hear that. Please try a newer version. If it happens all the same, please report the issue at, and revert to the last working version while this is being fixed.

This is not answer, but also a question. And you don't say whether you reported this bug. If reproducible, it can help solving. If not, you may patiently wait for a solution and you a version that works OK.
