  • Office 2011 will not run on Big Sur, and I am not going to pay Microsoft a yearly fee for another Office License. I already own multiple copies of Office. This also raises my concern about other El Capitan apps not working on Big Sur.
  • LibreOffice - Free, open-source office suite. Download the latest versions of the best Mac apps at safe and trusted MacUpdate.

Some Apache OpenOffice users are reporting that version 4.1.8 is crashing on Apple macOS 11.0 (aka “Big Sur” or 10.16) when opening OOXML documents – like .docx and .xlsx. The error message is:

According to various internet websites, LibreOffice v6.4.6 and v7.0 works with macOS 11.0 'Big Sur', my friend. On the link below, click on the downward pointing arrow, next to where it says.

OpenOffice quit unexpectedly Brave warriors breast cancer.

Here’s a video showing how it crashes (WebM version here):

One solution is to install LibreOffice, a more actively developed successor project. (OpenOffice’s last major release – 4.1 – was back in 2014.)

LibreOffice has much better support for modern operating systems, and many other features too, such as OOXML export, an updated NotebookBar user interface, a cloud-based version and much more. This timeline shows the major releases:

LibreOffice 7.1 runs on macOS Big Sur, so download it here and carry on with your work. And there’s more to come: an optimised version of LibreOffice for Apple’s M1-based Macs is being developed, thanks to work from Collabora Productivity, a company in LibreOffice’s ecosystem. And more improvements for LibreOffice on macOS Big Sur are on the way – stay tuned!


I have recently changed from OpenOffice to LibreOffice, but the transition is not going smoothly. I have reinstalled LibreOffice 3x by now.

Right now I cannot open a new writer document. Every time I try, I receice an error message 'LibreOffice 7.1 Document recovery' - 'Due to an error, LibreOffice crashed. All your files you were working on will now be saved. The next time LibreOffice is launched, your files will be recovered automatically' - 'The following files will be recovered:' - but the list is blank.


The funny thing is that calc spreadsheet and impress presentation do open well and I can save them.

This just concerns writer documents

I have reinstalled LibreOffice 3x by now

Please note If a problem is caused by a corrupt user profile, reinstalling LibreOffice won't help at all, since this won't touch the user profile. Therefore: Before reinstalling check whether the user profile might be the cause of a problem.

To test whether LibreOffice user profile is causing the issue:

  • Start LibreOffice
  • Restart in Safe Mode using Help → Restart in Safe Mode and confirm the restart using button: Restart
  • Click button Continue in Safe Mode
  • Perform the procedure showing the problem and check whether the problem is gone (If you need to open a file, use File → Open - do not use some other procedure)

If that works, most likely you user profile is corrupt and you need to reset to factory settings (see also options when starting Help → Restart in Safe Mode).

I have the same problem, my partners send me documents .docx, and is imposible to open it, I try with the safe mode and doest work.Any idea?

Libreoffice Macos Big Sur

  • .. and you are using macOS as well and same LibreOffice version?
  • .. how do you try to open .docx files (do you save 'em and use File -> Open via LibreOffice)?


I have the same problem


You really have exactly the same error message as described in the question? Or does that mean: 'I can't open .docx document sent to me'? Having the same symptom, does not necessarily mean, there is the same solution to your problem.


  • Yes, I am using the same version of mac and LibO
  • I recibe the documents by email, and I download it and then i try to open in my computer

And yes, i have the same symptom.. sorry my bad
