Like they say, the only stupid question is the one you don't ask.

The effectiveness of the bugzilla search is dependent on people
choosing the same words to describe the same concept.  I quite often
miss a previous report when I encounter a problem.  Do not worry too
much about it.

If you know of something special or unusual about myfile.odt, then
that makes a good starting point, first for a search for an existing
report and then for the summary and the description of your new
report.  Otherwise, this is just another Writer "FILEOPEN CRASH
opening a particular .odt".

If you file a new report, please attach your file, and please add me
(lo_bugs at iseries-guru.com) in the cc or the report.  I shall try to
reproduce the problem and maybe collect a bit of diagnostic

Our Bug Submission Assistant
<https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/bug/> should make the submission
process painless.  If you have difficulty, or just want reassurance,
come back to the list.  Everybody here is friendly.
