    Where are you saving it exactly? The reason I'm asking this is because it can have something to do with permissions and/or hibernation or something.

    Maybe it is the problem... Users without a proper understanding of permissions tend to make things worse.

    Have you been running graphical apps with 'sudo', by any chance?
    And which version/release of Kubuntu and LibreOffice?

    Re: Very bad problem with libreoffice

    I don't understand why you think chown may help. Is the file owned by a different user or something?
    Can you post the output of ls -l <filename> so we can see the permissions and ownership.
    Can you confirm that you are the owner?
    Is it inside your home directory?
    I'm guessing that there's something odd about the file or its location, not with LibreOffice itself.

    Re: Very bad problem with libreoffice

    Can you save a copy to /tmp, then close LibreOffice and reopen it again? Every user has full permissions to /tmp. If you can save it there, then it's likely a permissions problem with the actual location you are trying to use. (Don't reboot after saving the file as /tmp will be destroyed and created anew.)
    If you ask for help, do not abandon your request. Please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    I'm agree with you, i don't think it's permission problem ...
    It's strange, my document just save 3 pictures, but all of rest disappear ...

    Re: Very bad problem with libreoffice

    If you "save as" with another name, does it keep the changes?

    Re: Very bad problem with libreoffice

    Need to see the directory permissions too. That would be the . file - ls -al ~/Documents
    I'm assuming that is fine and would ask about the file system and SMART data for the storage being used.

    Also, any chance that NFS or a snap version of libreoffice got loaded accidentally? snaps don't work on NFS storage. ZFS or BTRFS used?

    Can an empty file be created without libreoffice - touch ~/Documents/foo does that work?

    Without more information, we are just throwing guesses at a brick wall.
