Hi :)
From the sounds of it the 4.2.0 might have addressed some of these
concerns, at least on Windows.

However i thought that the User Profile kept a lot of the users
settings and configurations and that the User Profile could be copied
or shared between users or even over a network.  A new install of
LibreOffice doesn't touch the User Profile except to add stuff for new

Part of the joy of using OpenSource is surely that reasonably sized
companies can employ their own devs, even if it's very part-time or
for just a couple of months, and still make a huge saving on costs vs
MS license fees.  For smaller companies it might be possible to offer
rewards through crowd-sourcing/funding.  This sort of approach gives
companies the ability to target specific areas.

Also there seem to be a lot of lurking lurgies that Sun and then
Oracle were completely disinterested in solving but have already been
solved by TDF or are on the way, or could easily be started without
being blocked by the company that owns LibreOffice.  Similarly with
Apache OpenOffice although LibreOffice seems to be developing far
faster.  If a 6 year-old problem has not yet been solved then maybe
post it as a new problem in LibreOffice because it's difficult to pick
through old bugs that might have been solved already just through
doing the code-cleanup

This was always my gripe with Ubuntu provided versions of
previously, and now the same happens with LibreOffice. This is just
anecdotal, but some time in the distant past, the firm I was working in
used an external Linux IT support firm which had a dedicated support
contract with Ubuntu, and a request was filed to have it corrected, but
nothing ever came back from Ubuntu at the time, and that was 6 or so
years ago (this wasn't the only OOo bug that gave us grief at that
time). It would seem that nothing has changed since :-)

Good luck in your quest !
