Hi Pete,

You were so right... Reboot without starting any app, repair color... and it's all working.
Thank you so much for your support. :bravo: :bravo:

Cheers,

Could a custom display profile be part of my pdf export issue ? I use calibrated displays (photo retouching).

Thanks everyone for your input into this. I changed the display to RGB generic and all is now fine.

I can open AOO from launchpad and the icons are no longer corrupted -YES :P

This may be a silly question, but I want to be sure before I do the transfer to Sierra again. It took me a day to go back to El Capitan.
My icons were fuzzy, but also my graphics IN the documents. The issue also occurred when printing those images.
Did any of you encounter that same issue and can you confirm that the printing issue will be solved as well by changing the color scheme?

Thanks!

The problem with this seems to be that the app download is classified as "unknown", and all that is allowed is App Store and Identified developers.
What is there that can be done to correct this problem?
Everything had been working well for the past three years until macOS Sierra 10.12 was loaded.

You need to change your security settings in "System Preferences".. The apple police at work..

Just following your example. Your advice was inaccurate for people using macOS Sierra and your reference to "Apple police" is moronic.

Nope. Still not fixing it. Sierra or AOO or both are broken.

I have tried everything suggested on this thread, several times.

I am running a Macbook Pro 17-inch early 2011, although I'm not sure what the relevance is.

The year and model of your Mac are very relevant. The fixes suggested seem to have fixed most peoples problems except for uses of 2011 MacBook Pros.

In another thread a user solved his problem by going to System Preferences>Energy Saver, and unchecking "Automatic graphics switching".

I am having the same problem on several MacBook systems running MacOS Sierra 10.12.1. On my MacBook Pro 15 (Early 2011) running MacOS 10.12.2 Beta (16C48b) OpenOffice would crash the first time it was launched but would open correctly when I clicked "Relaunch". I have installed the Legacy Java package and have the current version of Java 8 installed. I also tried resetting the display profile without any fix to the problem.

Given that some are saying it is a display issue I went into System Preferences / Energy Saver and turned off "Automatic graphics switching". This has immediately fixed the first time launch crash for me on this MacBook. This makes me think it might be related to a display driver issue.

Here MacBookPro late-2011 and you saved my life! :D

Unchecking "Automatic graphics switching" is the solution.

Thank you SO much

Larry thanks so much for posting this (and thanks to the original author who discovered the fix).

After much frustration, this solution for my late 2011 MacBook Pro fixed this issue instantly. Great forum, thanks everybody! :super:

Hello, same problem here. In safe mode AOO opens. In regular mode it doesn't. Tried all the suggestions (java, user profile, gatekeeper) but still no positive result. Use sierra 10.12.2
Anyone another suggestion ?

I am brand new to AOO4.1.2 and am trying to learn if it will work with a proposed New Install of OS X 10.12.2.
This forum speaks to this Problem being solved, but that solution is unclear.

AOO 4.1.3 works fine on my MacBook Pros (Retina) using macOS Ver.10.12.3 Sierra.

This forum speaks to this Problem being solved, but that solution is unclear.

There are muliple variations/solutions for this problem.

That post failed to describe exactly what had been tried or model of Mac he is using. Some problems were specific to old MacBook Pros, others to new iMacs.

Further, previous to that, a Poster says: “a user solved his problem by going to System Preferences>Energy Saver, and unchecking "Automatic graphics switching”.

That setting is specific to 15" MacBook Pros. Other Macs do not have that setting.
