Season's Greetings!!

Hello everybody,

In one of the frequent, random power failures my PC (config below) switched off
despite the inverter+UPS it feeds through!

I was using firefox and Calc at the time this happened. 

Now that I am looking at the damage apparently there was none. 
1. The file I was working on opened up smoothly. Sometimes even if I switch off properly
it goes in to recover mode the next time I try to bring it up. So I was pleasantly surprised. 

2. The recent documents had just the last file I was working on. That indeed felt as a
blessing in disguise because normally the recent documents under Calc shows all the recent 

documents including odt etc. So I do have to search and open for my recent ods document.

3. Before the event, I had configured Calc to go "Right" when I completed a data entry to 

a cell and pressed ENTER. This had changed to the standard go "Down".  So, I went to 

Tools - Options - LibreOffice Calc - General - Input Settings - and made it "Right". 

The spread-sheet refuses to do so. I restarted Calc. No use. The above path still shows "Right"
as the option but the next cell is the cell down the last one. I restarted the machine and still no 

I am not inclined to upgrade to higher version unless a re-installation is absolutely necessary.
(As I feel the efforts and risk of me doing something stupid are not worth the possible benefits.)

Any ideas?
