I have used Writer for a number of years. Just recently, I am unable to save a new document or an existing, saved document that has been updated. There is no response when I try to save. I use Windows 7 and Writer 4.1.3.

- check the HDD if is enough place on it to save the document.
- try to save onto a portable device (do not do it generally, but make a try now).
- try to reset the AOO user profile.
- check your PC for viruses and malwares.
- try to switch off the virus/malware protection programs temporarly (do not do it generally, but make a try now).
- try to reinstall the AOO
- try the LibreOffice (at least a portable version).

See the post immediately above yours and come back when you have tried it.
LO 6.4.4.2, Windows 10 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.

This is not the same problem posted by the OP. The OP was getting a response, so the solution to your problem may not be the same as for the OP. That said, in your case, the Save As dialog may be appearing off the screen, in which case resetting your user profile should fix the problem.
