I am working on writing lecture notes and i need extensive use of complex math formulas. Writer’s random formula corruption renders the software in a completely unusable state. This isn’t a new bug from what I understand (e.g. bug #99225) but since the bug has yet to be fixed, I’m wondering if there’s any workaround that can prevent or minimize the chances of it happening.
I am referring to the bug whereby formulas randomly vanish even when they aren’t edited. Some things I’ve tried:
- Copying these objects when I suspect corruption. Doesn’t work, the copied formulas carry the corruption / are empty.
- Killing the program & re-loading from last save. Doesn’t work, the corruption somehow makes it into the save file?
- Disabling the auto-save feature. Doesn’t work, suggesting that the corruption isn’t caused by save errors.
