Crashing upon Specific Task

This recently started–have two windows open, draw and writer. Prepare image and have it cropped to a shape in writer (much easier to do), copy and paste into a draw project. However, when I go from writer, it crashes. I updated to most recent version (–still happens; opened in “safe mode,” still happens. Any ideas? Thanks for any input.

It works for me without any problems.
Paste image into Writer and crop.
Ctrl + C in Writer and Ctrl + V in Draw.
However, in Draw the whole image is pasted and not just the cropped part.
This is because cropping is only a visual effect.
Cropping in Draw also works without problems.

With me:

If you paste a jpg into Writer it will be converted to png so file size will get much bigger. If it is a high resolution image the file size could get very large.
If the documents haven’t been saved for several paste operations then there is a lot in working memory for both programs with potential for problems

A better workflow would be to use a graphics editor like GIMP to process the images; crop, reduce resolution, adjust color and sharpen, then save in your preferred format. You can Insert - image into Draw without further conversion
