For some reason Libreoffice-still 5.2.7-1 Writer crashes when I try to open any of my documents (.odt, .doc, any file type). Calc opens documents as it should... and I haven't tested Impress. When I try to start Writter via terminal, after the crash there is no error output.

This started happening today. I'm on 32bit Arch linux with xfce desktop - forum topic here https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.p... and I've found that this issue is present on ubuntu as well https://askubuntu.com/questions/92785...

Does anyone know how to solve this?

I've managed to solve this issue by turning off Java in Libreoffice> First, start Libreoffice, click on Tools, click

Thank you for your answer. I've managed to find the solution. I'm not sure how kernel update triggered this, but it did.

2016-10-07 14:18:47 +0200 asked a question Why can't I scroll while selecting a text in LibreOffice Writer?

Hi everyone, When I use mouse to select a part of the text and then try to scroll down (or up) to further my selection LibreOffice Writer is not responding to my scrolling. Text stays selected, but no scrolling occurs. Is this regular behavior? I don‘t know if this is a bug or simply is an action upon which LibreOffice can improve.

This was noticed on Arch linux system using XFCE desktop environment.

P.S. Question was also asked on twitter with video attachment https://twitter.com/theshadowphoton/s...

2016-02-08 14:15:50 +0200 asked a question images discarded document formating after update

After the latest update, to libreoffice still 4..4.7-4, on Arch Linux platform, I opened a document and images in it discarded my formatting and took some, I assume, default image placement and formatting and destroyed all of my work. Is there a way to fix this so that this issue doesn't repeat after next update? Is there some optional dependency which is "required" for this not to happen?
