I have copied and pasted 100s of emails onto a Libre Office word document. My 'Decrease Paragraph' button is greyed-out for about 50% of the time when I try to decrease line spacing. Often it will 'turn black' and be operative, then 'grey out' on the same email. Please help!

This is especially true if you include images or a large number of text pages. There are a number of answers dealing with memory.
