What I hated was the status text seemed to tell me that the profile [all of it] was being transfered over. I thought that part of your profile was the extensions you added. I know if I delete the .libreoffice file in Ubuntu you loose the link to your added extensions. DID 3.5.x replace the folder name or change where the information is stored?

Ouch!  I'm glad we have managed to avoid saying it sucks!  (oops)

I was really hoping the sensible way would work. Ideally i had imagined copying the old user-profile all around the place and then installing the newer LO so that 'a few' (hopefully not too many) settings might get changed or added. I'm sure it has worked for me but i haven't been taking much notice tbh. Mostly i just reconfigure whichever machine i happen to be hot-desking on but not in a structured and planned way. I've noticed users who complain about a thing not being set a certain way tend to set it back after i take the trouble to set it up the way they said they wanted. So, i tend to set things the way i prefer on my logins and leave them to it. I need to be more organised though. The xcu thing looks interesting.

Hi Tom,

Hi :)
I thought it was possible to copy user-profiles between different machines?  Even between ones running 
different OSes?  Is it not possible to copy&paste the Extensions folder from the old folder 
position to the new one?  Something like the equivalent of
In theory, yes. In practice, YMMV. I always now systematically rename my
LO user profile before installing a new version, then install the new
version, start it once, and then replace the user profile created with
my previously backed up one. It sucks that one should have to do this in
order to preseve one's settings. I know of no other app where this is
the case.

IMHO, this is completely inacceptable because this program's productivity depends very much on 
You can zip your profile and send it to the developers with detailed info about your system and 
which upgrade was spoiled by that particular profile.
According to exprerience with parallel installations, extensions are the main culprit. You may try 
to remove all your additional extensions before installation and see if this helps somehow.
