LO 184.108.40.206, Windows 10 Home x64
This question has been asked before and was answered but the fix did not work for me. See:
I ran into a problem recently where the title strip on the LO Writer window would report “not responding” and just freeze. I was using LO 5.0, I highlighted some text to format and when I right clicked it froze. I used the task manager to end task and close the program. When I reopened LO to complete my task it did the same thing, although this time the task manager wouldn’t close the program.
It seems many people have had similar problems over the years and there are a lot of suggestions, some pretty invasive and dramatic, but no conclusive fixes.
One person suggested updating the video drivers but all of mine were already up to date. Another suggested re-installing. When I went to do that I found a newer version of LO, 220.127.116.11, so I installed that. It was working fine until I hit the “format” button at the top. Immediately it froze, so now I am back at square one. After square one I tried LO 4.4 with the same results. In desperation I downloaded Softmaker Office trial with the same results. At this moment I tried a trial of MS Office with no problems thus far. If anyone has any suggestions I’m all ears.
