Libre Office writer wont start since blocked by a "recovery" window impossible to remove

A file .docx received by mail started a “recovery” action in write. The unknown file is unrecoverable, but stopping the recovery process doesn’t work, the recovery action restarts all the time. I didn’t succeed in finding the recovery register in the user profine. Indeed the profile appears different from what reported in the various help found in the web

NOTE Context : Linux Mint 17.3 (16). Office: 5.0.32 Mail: Thuderbird 52.7.0 (32b)

You can try with the param: –norestore

The param does not work. Office stats, as a “new” doc is requested office exits. Regards, pytagoric
