Once started, Calc (office) will work, then start to slow down like it's waiting to react to keystrokes, it gets slower and slower, then finally crashes after freezing.
This has happened with the last 8 sessions, I rebooted my system.. previous versions have never done this.
Responsiveness is really bad, when this happens.. I think you broke something.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run it and make about 50 changes.. mostly creating colors and merging/unmerging cells
after a while, it slows down, then crashes, the responsiveness from keystroke to response gets longer and longer till it crashes.
Not doing this
User Profile Reset: Yes
I will try ONE more update.. then I may have to go back to EXCEL I have too much work relying on this product. thanks in advance
On which env are you? (Linux, macOS, Windows)
You can try to upgrade to 7.4.5 + try https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/FirstSteps
Now if you've got msOffice, don't hesitate to use it if it can help you.
I can confirm constant crashing with Calc typing, or copy-pasting multi-line text into a cell, then switching out to another cell.
I don't see a slowdown beforehand though.
The crashing occurs seemingly after a number of edits and then a focus switch.

To me, this seems related to the lazy redraw of the cell display, so could be a scheduling issue (again), similar to the ones Patrick fixed previously.

Do you still see it in 7.5.3 ?
@Stéphane : I haven't tested with 7.5.3 yet.
It could be linked to bug 146626, as I was using an external Thunderbird monitor connected to my MBPro (mirroring).
Here's how I can generally get Calc to crash.
Copy-paste a multiline text passage into a Calc cell. Try and change the default cell positioning from mid to upper, and then set justification to left via the toolbar buttons.
Either when setting left justification, or moving the mouse to click on the Save button, is when the crash occurs.
If I save the changes via the CMD-S keyboard shortcut when the mouse cursor is still in the cell and actively flashing, the crashes don't occur as often.
The crashes seem to occur when I leave the cell and attempt to set an attribute via one of the toolbar buttons, or save the sheet.

Whilst experiencing these crashes again yesterday, I did notice a slowdown after a number of edits.
I could not crash it, using:

Would be good to know the version information from byl sottile.
Alex, any chance you can try and collect a backtrace, and/or do a bibisection?
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I don't reproduce this.
Since byl didn't respond but Alex provided quite some information, let's consider it may be macOS only.

Can anyone attach a crash log?

If you see the Recovery dialog when it crashes, can you take a sample using the Activity Monitor application before you click on any of the dialog's buttons is as good as a crash log.

I forgot to mention that you can find the crash logs for recent crashes in the /Applications/Utilities/Console application. Attachment 191022 [details] shows a screen snapshot of the LibreOffice crashes on my machine where I have selected the newest "soffice" (i.e. LibreOffice) entry and selected the details of the crash log.
Hope that helps.
