comment How do I limit the size of my Dropbox directory?
Thank you for the response, but this does not address the issue in my question in any way that I can see. If I didn't want to sync something, I could just leave it out of my Dropbox folder entirely. What I need is a failsafe to prevent accidental overload.

comment Why does this one SVG file cause Libreoffice Writer to slow down?
@muru, as mentioned in the second paragraph of my question, I have opened them in Inkscape, and there aren't any problems there. At least, none that I can determine. If there's a particular tool or function in Inkscape that I can use to probe the file, please let me know.

Thank you for this detailed response. Unfortunately, I can't seem to locate the program.desktop file that's required to make this all work.
