I just deleted all remnants of OpenOffice due to crashes after last weeks install of OS Sierra plus possible lack of continued development.

Before I install LibreOffice v5.2.2, I want to know if there are problems with crashing or incompatibilities.

Thanks for any help.

Out of the box LibreOffice does have issues with macOS Sierra. They are working on a fix which should come in a later release.

However there are simple work arounds to get it going depending on your hardware, iMac or MacBook Pro.



If that does not fix your problem, please add a comment to your post with information like: error messages, hardware, etc.

LO is causing beachballs and becomes unusably slow. V on sierra, MBP 15 inch 2013, 8 Gb, ssd, 2.7 Ghz + 27 inch Apple screen. No crashes just mini hangs and beach balls. Clean install of Sierra and LO, no upgrades. Procedure above don't help.

It starts when document contain a certain amount of graphics, just text seems to be a lot better

There's another post on this that identifies two possible workarounds: changing your color profile and turning off graphic card switching. I did the latter on my 2011 MacBook Pro and it now works fine. I didn't have to do anything on my '11 iMac to make it work.

See for more info, it might have been one of the links posted by Blanksheet.

5.2.3 RC1 works great, but not 5.2.2.
