I used to be able to name a document and choose what format to save it in. Now I get nothing but the whirling beach ball! Help! using Mac Catalina 10.15.5
when I choose "save as" all I get is the little twirlly ball - nothing else. How can I name and save a document?
your question, seems similar to :
On mac catalina I can't save my work
which sadly also has no answer, yet.
You could try
changing the security settings to allow libreoffice to make changes to your system.
(more info: https://www.howtogeek.com/443611/how-macos-catalinas-new-security-features-work/)
soffice.binfrom a terminal and see if any error is writen to it, wenn you try to save a file. (If you need help with this, just ask in the comments)
Hope that helps.
