WE NEED THIS STRESSED on the web site.
The 3.5.x line is still the "cutting edge" version and is not ready for
the needs of business user, and the personal user that must have as few
issues as possible.
If we had this on the web site on the page where it "recommends" 3.5.x
instead of the 3.4.x line for all things, we will get more people who
need LO working with virtually no issues. Right now, this person would
not have updated to 3.5.x for his "very important work" without dealing
with any issues involved with the first few version of a new line. If
there was a statement that 3.4.x "recommended for the business user" and
3.5.x "recommended for the personal user on the cutting edge", may be
people who need a very stable version of LO will not have issues like
this person did.
I know we must have people using the 3.5.x line and reporting bugs and
issues, but do we really want to hear from business users that
downloaded the 3.5.x "recommended" line and then they or their people
starting having a lot of "work stoppage" issues? LO will get a bad
"rep" fast that way.
I wish this person well with his dissertation, but if there was a
statement next to the 3.4.x and 3.5.x lines telling people which is best
for their needs, we should/would not see people with "must not fail"
usage needs for their office suite have "work stoppage" issues like this
For a dissertation, I would not recommend the 3.5.x line, YET. The same
should go for any business user, or even students, that need to have the
most stable version of LO working for them.
Remember, people here stated that our user use the 3.3.x line till 3.4.x
went to 3.4.3 or 3.4.4. Why are we recommending 3.5.0, or 3.5.1 for
every user now? That is what the download page is doing. Sure there
are some new and better features for 3.5.x, but we do not want to get
known for pushing a version of LO to the business user that is not as
stable as it needs to be for their use.
For the people I deal with locally, including all of the people I hand
out DVDs to, I have not recommended them to go to 3.5.x, yet. I do not
want "my" business users to update from 3.4.x to 3.5.x till it is
ready. I do not want them to come back on me about why they are now
having issues that 3.4.x did not. I did not start handing out 3.4.x
DVDs to my business users till it was at 3.4.3.

Yes, stick with the 3.4.x version that is working. Perhaps post a bug-report if you have time.
Both the links give much the same end result. You might find the 2nd link easier to use
Good luck and regards from

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Figure Numbering disrupted in Master Document (LO 3.5)

Dear all, I'm writing a long dissertation and therefore I'm using a master
document. In LB3.4 the master document was working fine, with 3.5 instead
the figure numbering went crazy - the figure fields showed "no sources
found" or something similar. I rolled back to 3.4 and everything is ok at
the moment. I was wondering if this is a bug of 3.5. Any help is much
For something as important as a dissertation document, you would be
crazy to use new, untested, latest software versions such as LO35.
Always read the bug reports, QA test results etc. before.
