OpenOffice Crashing

Post by pizzapete »

My open office crashes when I open a specific text file. This only happens with 1 file. I have previously opened and edited the file. Now when I open it, the program opens the document, it briefly displays and then after about 1 second the program closes. I opened a different text file on my system and the program does not crash.

Please post the file here so we can see what happens on other computers. To post a file, click Post Reply and look for the Attachments tab just below the box where you type a response.

Resetting your OpenOffice user profile may help but would not bet on that if the problem is with one file only.
Attachments are limited to 128KBi here. Use a 3rd party web site for sharing files if bigger.

You can try LibreOffice (or at least a portable version first) to check if it does better.

I want to attach the file for others to test, it exceeds the maximum file size. I see the suggestion to use a 3rd party to send the file. I am not sure how to accomplish this. Do I send it to another email? The file is 1.31 mb. Thank you.

You can post it on a personal cloud drive, like Google Drive or One Drive, and make it publicly available, or you can use a file sharing site like MediaFire.
