I'm Working on a Macbook Pro 2012 (MAC OS v10.15.7, Intel Core i7) and using LibreOffice v 220.127.116.11.
I have a new Libre text document and I want to first save the document, and use a previously copied text string (from the clipboard) as the document name. The copied- text string, no matter its length, will not paste in the "Save As" box document name field.
Try it yourself: Highlight any text string (using ⌘-C), and verify that it is on the clipboard (e.g. in Finder, go to Edit/Show Clipboard). Now go to a new Libre text document and do Save As and try to paste (using ⌘-V) the clipboard contents as the new document name in the Save As box. This does not work on a Macbook using LibreOffice v 18.104.22.168.
Screen prints attached.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Highlight any text string (using ⌘-C), and verify that it is on the clipboard
2. Open a new Libre text document and do Save As (or Save).
3. In the popup window, the default name "Untitled 1" will appear.
4. Now do a paste (⌘-V). No text is pasted in the document name field.
The text on the clipboard should be pasted as the document name in the Save As box.

Tried to reset User Profile as recommended but cannot locate it on my MacBook.
According to your instructions located on https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#Resolving_corruption_in_the_user_profile
the User Profile should be located in this folder:
~/Library/Application Support/LibreOffice/4/user (LibreOffice 4 to 7)
However, the LibreOffice folder does not exist in the path.
