Every time I add one o more formulas in LibreOffice Writer using Formula Editor and I try to save the document, the software crashes.
It happens even if I try Formula Editor (on my computer called LibreOffice Math) by itself.
It crashes when I click on the Save Button or Save menus on both the softwares.
I need to use the Formula Editor as student, and i lost my work after an hour of work.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add a formula in Writer (Or in Formula Editor)
2.Go to save the document (by the buttons or the menu)
3.The software ask for use the ODF format instead text format
4.Choose ODF format
(step 3 and 4 only in LibreOffice Writer)
Save the document

On pc Debian x86-64 with LO Debian package 18.104.22.168, I don't reproduce this.
Do you reproduce this with a brand new file?
For the test, could you rename your LO directory profile (see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#GNU.2FLinux) and give a new try?
I thought it was a Formula Editor bug because LibreOffice never gave me this kind of bug ad this was the first time I was working on Formula Editor.
So the real problem is: LibreOffice crashes always when you try to save whatever.
I found that this bug is made by the update to GNOME 3.18
I've found this workaround https://forum.antergos.com/topic/3089/libreoffice-crashing-on-save/5 that says:
from the libreoffice menu go to tools/options/general and mark “use libreoffice dialogs”
It works and LibreOffice never crash anymore.
It's our bug actually, and it's already fixed towards 5.0.4. In the meantime there is a better workaround: Just add export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk to your .bash_profile, or uncomment this line in /etc/profile.d/libreoffice-fresh.sh. You'll need to logout-login for the change to take effect.
