Description mr zoom 2013-08-01 14:47:41 UTC
Tested on Windows 7/64bits

- create a new writer document.
- insert some png pics, in order to have a big document (>15Mo)
- save.

After saving, libreoffice immediatly freeze.
Document seems to be correctly saved on hard drive, but recovery is proposed after relaunch.

Openoffice 4.0.0 tested, no problem with this doc.

I can't add attachement file as example (size>3Mo)

As you've stated that inserting images is necessary this seems almost undoubtedly a result of bug 47148 and related 52433.

Marking as a duplicate - if you can get the same problems without images please provide us a sample document to see. 

Thanks for reporting

I guess we're using that as a tracker not as a dupe - fixing now

Updated version to match the tracker version - this was most likely inherited from OOo prior to fork

test files are useful for debugging purposes.

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

   *Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.1 or later)

   *If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
   *If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

   *Update the version field
   *Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
   *Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 

1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug 
3. Leave a comment with your results. 
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa

Thank you for your help!

Reporter didn't respond so this could never be tested. Closing as INVALID.
