       Thank you for your timely response -

           but unfortunately your response is over my head  ;-(

       If I were to upgrade to .5 - [yes, I will be keeping .4 in the
download folder] -
           what do I click on to so do? - all I see are various blocks
mentioning various options with no download button  ???

       BTW - just what is torrent? - I keep hearing that word, yet still
have no inkling as to what it refers  ;-(

Hi :)
(2)  The 'buttons' are not really proper buttons.
You have to click on the appropriate text inside the button/block.
Sometimes a 'button' has a couple of different links that do slightly
different things.  It would be awkward to have a 3way button that had
1.  Normal download when you click the top half
2.  Torrent download when click the bottom half and
3.  Information when you click the right-hand-side

Putting all 3 together in a fake button means people usually wave their
mouse around and click on something and then work it out.

It's a good idea to keep the installer file (assuming you are on Windows)
for the version you are familiar with so that if you don't like the upgrade
then you can return to the familiar very easily.  It's much less of an
issue by around .3, .4 and onwards because things have settled down a lot
by around then.  It's more an issue when tons of new features have just
been added, such as with the .0 releases.  That 3rd digit is a bit like a
"Service Pack" (like Xp Sp3 or Win7 Sp1).

So i will be downloading and installing the .5 with no qualms (but i'll
keep the .4 installer on 1 machine jic)

(1)  dunno.  I suspect that Draw might be good for doing a time-line but
if you are looking for proper calendar-type functionality then there are a
few other packages depending on what sort of level you are aiming at.
Project Managers  with a dizzying arrray of interlocking sub-projects and
mums with a couple of kids need something a lot more sophisticated than the
average user.

       (1) Curiously wondering how timelines are done with this program -
              I've heard it's possible ... I've gone to the help-site ...
       Is it through these spreadsheets? ... or ???

       (2) could someone explain if it's time to update to this .5 over .4
- and if so, how to do so;
              I've gone to the download site ... but there's only blocks of
varying programs with no clickable download button ???

       Looking forward to learning more of this fascinating program from
this list -
           you all sound to be quite knowledgeable,

is it a bug or not?

1. I open an xls file with a sheet with cells protected by a password
2. I save it in odf format - no messages, works without problems
3. I open the new odf file and want to save it in xls. LO requires change
of the password (without asking for the original one)

Is it OK that LO asks for the password change when saving from odf to xls
but not when saving from odf to xls?
What do you think?

(according to the help it is ok that LO can change the password, I am
asking only about the different behavior in  similar situations)
