All LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 applications running on Linux Mint 18.2 Sarah are crashing when Tools > Options > LibreOffice > View is selected regardless selecting by mouse or by up/down arrow keys.
I can select other options and they are shown properly in the popup window but it comes to view, it crashes ans immediately closes the popup configuration window. This happens on all LibreOffice applications ( Writer, Calc, etc...) in a same way.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open any LibreOffice application (Writer, Calc, Impress etc...)
2. Goto to Tools > Options. Popup configuration window appears
3. Select the LibreOffice > view option either by mouse or by arrow down key
4. It crashes immediately when the View is selected.
It crashes, popup configuration window disappears and libre office processes die.
It should have not crashed. It should have shown the view configuration options

Can't check if OpenGL is enabled, because it craches on selecting the View from the Options.
How to enable/disable OpenGL
Go to Tools ▸ Options ▸ LibreOffice ▸ View and check/uncheck Use OpenGL for all rendering
Same thing happened in Safe mode, too, it crashed again. I did the same in safe mode and it crashed again .
LibreOffice 5.3 and newer
start LibreOffice and select Help > Restart in Safe Mode...
if your problem is that LibreOffice does not start at all, launch it from the command line with the parameter --safe-mode
in the 'Enter Safe Mode' dialog select 'Restart'
LibreOffice will restart and display the 'Safe Mode' dialog
select Continue in safe mode
