Libre office was working great untill recently on both my Macs, with OS Sierra 10.12 LibO version 5.1.6. was installed on both. Great office package to use LibO. Even donated a lil while ago, because I appreciate all the hard open source work u guys do.

So I updated to LibO 5.2.2 recently, like I always do after there is an update available. I also install the languagepack for Dutch like always. After starting up it workked fine the first time. But after closing it and starting it up a seccond time it just wont work anymore. LibO just will not start up again and I get an error rapport every time. After these persistant crashes I tried several ways to fix it myself. Cause I have seen this problem before with LibO and OSX. A new clean install usually works after removing all old files first. But this time with this newest release 5.2.2 that trick doesn't work anymore.

  1. A new install the regular way with replacing the aplication in the App.folder results in crashes after a first good start of the aplication. Aftyer that 1st succesful start the aplication refuses to start again and gives an error rapport over and over and over again.
  2. This happens with and without the language pack installed, so that doesn't make any difference.
  3. Same thing happens with a new clean install after I removed all the old files.
  4. Downloading the new version again and installing the fresh downloaded version of 5.2.2 : same no difference.
  5. Finnaly I thought I'd be clever, and downloaded the older version 5..1.6 again. Thinking there would probably be a bugg in this new release, but at least at than I could work again with LibO. But guess what? Now the older version also does the same and crashes after a succesful 1st start. Al starts after crash. Also after installing this old version the ways described before. I copied the errorrapports but I can't upload them cause I dont have enough karma on here yet.

Recently I did do an update on my OS Sierra, on 27 oktober: macOS Sierra 10.12.1 which improves stability and security. And this date seems to be crucial because since than "I believe" crashing began.

Please help!!!
