Hi :)
Once you get to the "Roaming" folder it should be pretty easy to figure out.  Most OpenSource 
programs will have their UserProfiles in there, just pick the one that is relevant = in this case 
the LibreOffice one.  From then on there is only about 1 folder in each folder until you get to the 
right place.  
Regards from
Tom :)

       Are you saying that all I need do is copy that file to the newly
named version? ... wow, you make it sound so simple;

       THANK YOU!

       It's an easy file to locate as long as I remember how to find it  ;-)
            the 'user' and that '3' tend to leave my memory banks  ;-)
               my mind tends to drop these essential elements for the
                    ah, so that may be why these 'glorified typewriters'
dislike me so ... see there I go again  ;-)

Hi :)
So, your user profile is in

C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\3\user

Hmmm, how to get there?  In Win7 can you open a "My Computer" folder and
then navigate from there?  I don't play around with 7 much but it seems
reasonably ok to me.

Hi :)
Sorry, which OS?  or at least which platform?  Windows or Gnu&Linux?  If
Windows is it Vista or later or still on Xp?  (I'm still on Xp on at
half the machines here).
Regards from
Tom :)

          the last time I went there, I found all this confusing jargon
re. if you want this or that [without explaining what was what  ;-)  ]

      Whenever I've clicked on that 'check for updates', nothing connects
with anything  ;-(

      I guess computers must not like me ...
          well, I do call them 'glorified typewriters'  ;-)
              and I do make fun of their re-defining terms  ;-)
                BUT I give them a nice window to see the world, and let
them have a nice sleep every night  ;-)

I think this it is not much of a problem.
Options / LibreOffice / OnlineUpdate / check now.

or go

Installation is very simple, just install, and LibO takes the previous
setting automatically. It;s a 5 min job. It takes more time to get the
from the old typewriter.

Today I would install and next week or so upgrade to 3.6.4

        ... all was fine until today; LO no longer opens PDF files or
files ... what could have happened ???

        If I up-date [from 3.4] will this clear up the problem? or will
problem persist?

        AND where is the best place to download the program - updates -
without all the bits and pieces separated out;
              ok, I'm looking for a simplified, non-geek place to
updated version [to which ???].

        The more I learn of these computers, the stupider I feel  ;-)

        Anyone else in this boat ... anyone able to help the drowning
is it time to pitch this 'glorified typewriter' out the window and
the manual typewriter from the attic ...
