Restore Windows Bug in LibreOffice & OpenOffice

I experienced the restore windows bug for several times when I try to open the Open Office or LibreOffice. Usually, my workaround is to remove the existing application and install the new one. I guess the root cause of the problem is I didn’t close each application separately before shutting down my laptop and causing this bug keeps occurring in my application.

When I try to open the application, this window will prompt out:

Restore Windows Bug
Neither “Don’t Restore Windows” button nor “Restore Windows” button is working. I cannot use the application to create new documents or view any documents properly. I tried to kill the process via Activity Monitor and it won’t solve the problem as it reappears again when I open the application next time.

Recently, I found the workaround to fix the problem. In Mac, search for the Terminal application and run this command to remove the savedState file:

[sourcecode language=”bash”]rm -fr ~/Library/Saved\ Application\ State/org.libreoffice.script.savedState/[/sourcecode]
