Description John M. 2022-11-22 15:05:44 UTC
LibreOffice and is constantly crashing and is unusable under MacOS Monterey and Ventura.
Version worked fine on my previous iMac (21.5"/2015) running Monterey.
I then got a new iMac 24"/M1/2021.
On this new iMac, LibreOffice crashes constantly under Monterey and Ventura.
I upgraded LibreOffice to the MacOS (Apple Silicon) version but it still crashes and is unusable.
The symptom is a spinning color wheel cursor, and the only thing I can do is force quit LibreOffice. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open a LibreOffice text document.
2.Wait a minute or two until LibreOffice freezes (spinning cursor).2

Actual Results:
LibreOffice freezes and the only solution is to force quit.

Expected Results:
LibreOffice should not freeze while working on a document.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

It appears the crashing/freezing happens when more than one LibreOffice documents are open at the same time.
Comment 2 John M. 2022-11-23 12:43:09 UTC
I confirmed that the freezing/crashes occur only when multiple documents are open at the same time.  I can have one text document open for hours or days with no problem, then if I open a second document (text or spreadsheet), LibreOffice will crash within less than a minute.
