Dear Tom and Pedro,

It will be a pleasure to test with builds, and 4.2.0 and formally report a bug as well. I'll keep you posted.

Best regards,

Hi :)
Blimey!!  Good work doing all that!  Sounds like a bit of a nightmare!

It is really disturbing that the 4.1.4 doesn't work but the 4.1.1
does.  We don't normally get that type of regression.  We do
occasionally get a regression in a newer branch, such as the 4.2.0
(especially when it's still pre-release) but generally the sub-point
releases don't add new features or stir-up lurking problems.

I know you have done a LOT of work already but is it possible to post
a bug-report about this?  Also is it possible to test-drive the 4.2.0
easily and see if the problem is also in there?  Errr, that 2nd
request is more work than i expect anyone to put in but if it's really
easy then it might help.  Similarly for Pedro's requests to try the
4.1.2 and 4.1.3.  I think those are less important than trying the
4.2.0 because the regression might have already vanished in the new

LibreOffice usually has 2 branches.  One that is "stable branch" and
one that is kinda "new features and extra compatibility with MS Office
formats, errr branch".  We don't seem to have a short and snappy title
for the 2nd branch.  Obvious contenders, such as "development branch",
are inadequate or just plain completely wrong.  Both branches are
actively developed so a "newer release" could be in either branch.

Errr, to cut a long story short = if the 4.1.1 worked then the 4.1.4
should also work but the 4.2.0 might not.  This is roughly like
everything working fine in Win7 or Xp but suddenly finding problems
with Win8.  So what is disturbing here is that it's happened in the
middle of the branch = like turning on an Win7 machine one day and it
suddenly not working for no reason.

Regards from
Tom :)

Between your current and the latest you have and which you can get from here

It would be great if you could test with those builds and check where the
problem first occurs (and along the way get your system updated to the most
advanced version that suits your needs).
Then you could report the bug at

This would be a nice way to contribute to the project ;)

Best regards,
