Thanks for putting all doubts to rest.

Shifted from MS Office to Open Office in 2010 & then a friend of mine suggested LO said better than OO.

Working on LO now since 2011 - 12. Never faced any problem till date. Few petty ones (to do with settings) which I could manage through help & minor adjustments.


Waiting for the next launch.

Hi :)
LibreOffice develops so fast that by the time most other software would be releasing updates and patches LO is releasing a new version. The next version in the same branch tends to be just bug-fixes but in the newer branch you get bug-fixes and new features (although those new features may have introduced unexpected new problems or unearthed old ones that had previously been hidden.

So although you don't get a splattering of bug-fixes, patches and security patches you do get a very much smoother of the entire program.

    Other than being subscribed to this mailing list (see:, my status is no
    different to yours (ie. an ordinary user of the software).

    At this time there is no work-around (what you call "fix") for this
    issue, that I could suggest to you.

    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.

    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
    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
    the next update/release (which should include the "fix" for your
    is due in a matter of days.
