Hi :)
Both and any other settings in there too.  

For some reason i drop the number of undo steps as 100 seems fairly excessive to me but then it 
depends on the type of editing.  I think i usually create back-ups or newer versions more often 
than that anyway.  

The defaults seem set for ancient machines or VERY mobile ones that might not have much or any Ram 
or anything.  Nowadays, on a reasonable desktop, 10-15Mb per object doesn't seem unreasonable and i 
might have quite a lot of objects.  Adding front and back-pages of my newsletter i get around 25 
images but then it's mostly just 2 per page for the rest.  I've not really messed around with this 
machine and it seems very low with only 20Mb for the "use for LibreOffice" so i might bump that up 
quite a lot.  I do have over 1Gb of Ram after all! :)  

Regards from 
Tom :)

Thanks :) 

Hmm, that vanishing images problem kinda sounds familiar! :(  It was
discussed on the Documentation Team's mailing list a couple of years
ago so i have CC'd this email to them as they found a good
I found that bumping up the memory settings seemed to help a bit
Tools - Options - Memory
but mostly the problem seemed to vanish when i had saved the images in
the same folder as the document, or in a sub-folder as would happen
with html pages.  I was never completely sure if the main answer was
having the document and images on my local desktop rather than some
on the network and some on the file-server.  The problem eventually
disappeared for me but i was never entirely certain why. 

Did you bump the "Use for LibreOffice" or "Memory per Object" or Both?

that could be my problem with the graphics. Will experiment later today.

Well, I may wait for 4.0.3 and see if that fixes anything. I
did check the bugs list and I don't see my specific bug
mentioned, but it may manifest itself in different ways, so
maybe it will be fixed in 4.0.3.

The bug that makes LO 4 unusable for me is drawings no
longer save when pasted into Writer (exit LO, re-open the
document, and the drawings are gone). A significant amount
of my work involves making drawings in LO Draw and using
them in Writer documents. What I have been doing as a
workaround is pasting screenshots of the drawings into Writer.

Thanks for all the replies...

I found this link on the official website
I got there from the main website
then the trail
"Main website" - "Get involved" - "QA"

got me to

Hmm, you caught me out.  What i described is what i wish i did and
i keep promising myself i will do next time, this time, each time
but never quite get around to it.  Errr, well tried the 4.0.0
fairly early but really liked it and stuck with it.  I was going
to hunt around the different articles published at the time to
solve problems raised in their various lists of comments.  A few
seemed so very trivial that it made me wonder if the commenter had
ever installed anything before.  Sadly i didn't even get through
that let alone helping with testing out listed bugs.  So, this
time i really have downloaded the beta.  Hopefully my good
intentions wont get so side-tracked this time!

Do you have a link to the beta versions? I have the opensuse
version of 4.0.2 with latest update (yesterday) and 4.0.2 from
LibreOffice parallel installed. Both had same two major problems
for me since my cleints now usually send .docx documents and I do
alot of table formatting with the number formatting columns, some
of it doesn't work again.

If I could get a hold of 4.0.3 and if it still has the problems
report them again as bugs.
