Writer keeps crashing

I am working on long documents (40 pages) but nothing else is unusual about them. Writer crashes repeatedly, and my work is lost. Please advise

Two choices: make sure Windows 10 is fully updated.


If you need to continue with your document as a matter of urgency. start Windows in Safe Mode, then run OpenOfice. Most likely OO will run stable in that mode. When your document is complete it could be time to look for a definite cause. As a general rule, when you pause work on any document press Ctrl S to cause it to save.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 18.04.3 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
