Thanks for the screenshot. Can you describe more precisely which steps you took before the error occured?

I don't get a crash e.g. when I do the following (the macro recorded this way probably is of little use...):

1) Start LibreOffice Writer
2) enable macro recording in "Tools" -> "Options" -> "Advanced" (enable checkbox for "Enable macro recording (may be limited)" and click OK to save
3) select "Tools" -> "Macros" -> "Record Macro"
4) type some text
5) click the "Stop Recording" button
6) click "Save" in the macro save dialog

Does LibreOffice close unexpectedly for you if you take these steps?
Or what are the exact steps you take before the crash appears?

Comment 8 Michael Weghorn 2019-03-28 16:50:00 UTC
Seeing that your problem is in Calc:
The same as mentioend in comment 7 also happens if I start Calc instead of Writer in step 1).
Comment 9 Eduardo Castillo 2019-04-05 15:03:06 UTC
This problem occurs only in the fresh version, with the version still there is no problem.

Thanks for the info. Can you give more details on which steps exactly you take before the crash happens, s. comment 7?
Comment 11 Jan-Marek Glogowski 2019-07-13 14:15:43 UTC
Can you test if the current 6.2 build still crashes? There were a lot of fixes merged into 6.2 since your bug report, and since Arch is a rolling release, this bug might even be fixed in current 6.2.
