but as already mentioned in my mail, I am just a user not very tech
savvy to understand all this. I feel it is ultimately users like me
who will count & are the final segment where LO has to be propogated.
Other than being subscribed to this mailing list (see:
https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/), my status is no
different to yours (ie. an ordinary user of the software).
I request if you could guide me on how to fix this problem.
At this time there is no work-around (what you call "fix") for this
issue, that I could suggest to you.
Went to the link given in your mail. From there to another which said
fixed by Coalan Mcnamara, but could make head or tail of all that.
The link to "Bugzilla" gave you, is where the project records and
monitors software issues and RFE (Requests For Enhancement). Coalan is
one of the project's leading developers and the "fixed" tag indicates
that he has worked on and resolved this issue. After "peer review" the
"fix" will be included in the next update/release of the software.
Does'nt Lo send updates to set such things right or anything which
ordinary users like me could download & install & that settles the
Kr. Shivpal Singh
Your closing commentary insinuates that project members (including the
developers) do not care about us "ordinary users". Nothing could be
further from the truth.
Yes LO does provide updates and on a much more frequent and regular
schedule than other similar software. What you need to understand is
that the developers are resolving many issues (like this one) and adding
improvements every day, and it would be impossible to update/release a
new version every time a single issue was resolved.
According to this page https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleasePlan
the next update/release (which should include the "fix" for your issue)
is due in a matter of days.

I came across a problem in LO - cant say whether its with my computer or
LO. Version i have is the latest 4.1.
Spelled check in Calc & the moment opted for the suggested correction
The file was recovered, tried the same thing again with the same result.
did this atleast 5 - 6 times with the same result - crash & recovery
with the word not getting replaced.
Hope you can suggest the shortcomings in my computer if the problem is
due to this. If it is due to some shortcoming in LO request you to pls
