LibreOffice crashes when closing two open windows

LibreOffice ( systematically crashes when I open two windows of one file (writer) and then close one. I tried three different Writer documents; all the same. It does not happen with spreadsheets.
System is Mac OS X 10.9.3; MacBook Air Intel 1.8 GHz, 4 GB.
I could not find any information on the forums. If this is not a bug information about what to do would be appreciated.

I have openSUSE 13.1 and it has LibreOffice Writer Maybe you better explain which version of openSUSE you use and where you got that version installed from.

hi jsheats,


ditto, sometimes after copying and pasting between two spreadsheets,
open with different files, on closure of one the other window freezes, only
redress found is to manually kill calc and then restart

to combat data loss, the auto save internal was set to 2 minutes

no regular pattern has yet been established

where is your install from?

I think perhaps you might need to re-read the original post.
The original post clearly states the problem does not occur in spreadsheets, but also. . . .
. . .is seeking support for Libreoffice running on Mac OSX.
Obviously he/she is seeking support in the wrong place and needs to ask the question in a more appropriate forum.

this is probably the best place for the op to visit


all your comments are 100% accepted

however the hiccup seen on this pc is similar to the title of the post

my usage is normally to have multiple spreadsheets open, very rarely are two
writer windows open

it seems there is possibly some instability in LibreOffice_4.2.4_Linux_x86-64

are others seeing similar events?

have fun

I also missed completely that the OP is most possibly not even using openSUSE.

Please jsheats, can you explain why you decided to ask this here in the openSUSE forums?
Do you want to know if we openSUSE users have the same problem as you have? Or …?
