Assuming you are speaking of the tc-8.x x86 version of libreoffice, I saw the same thing when trying to save in odt format initially.

Next I tried to save a file in docx format, which worked without errors. After that I noticed that, despite the error message, the file had been saved in odt format anyway - I was then able to open, modify and save this file and any others I tried in odt format.

Perhaps this is something to do with these files:
Code: [Select]
$ ls -a /home/tc/.config/libreoffice/4/user/basic
dialog.xlc  script.xlc

Yes TC 8

You are right. .ODT with warning but a file on disk
.txt without any warning and file on the disk
docx with warning without a file on the disk.

What is the problem?

I don't know what the problem is - there are many hits for the error message, but no obvious solutions.

docx format worked for me and, after the initial error messsge, I  could save in any format I tried
