Using Libreoffice writer with MacOS 10.15.5 trying to use "save as" or "save a copy" for a document just results in spinning ball???

I just downloaded the latest version of libre office on to my new macbook air using Catalina and tried to save an existing document which I had just edited under another name/version and got the spinning ball which eventually went away. I tried it with “save a copy” with the same results. Any ideas?


please see my answer in the following question: Unable to Save or Save As any document even in Safe Mode. The key to success is to provide Full Disk Access (How to - see link)

Hope that help.
