Just to recap:
You've upgraded Windows from XP to Windows 7 and then upgraded
LibreOffice 3.6 to 4.1.
The path to the user folder is moved by Windows in the upgrade of
Windows. My guess is that the path to the AutoText-files, that is
stored under that folder, did not get converted properly.
- Open the dialog AutoText (Ctrl + F3) and click on Paths...
- Do you see a path that looks something like this:
C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice 4\user\autotext
If you do not see such a path then you can add it and try again. You
might also want to check the paths for other program functions.
Go to Tools -> Options... and in the dialog that pops up look under
the section LibreOffice -> Paths (the list to the left). If you see an
entry that starts with C:\Documents and Settings... it is likely wrong
so select it in the list and click on the button Default. If
everything goes well you should now see a path that starts with
After Windows XP Microsoft moved a lot of folders around among others
the %AppData% folder where the user profile of LibreOffice is stored.
Now the problem is that these files contains some settings that links
to the paths that no longer exist.
Sorry for the late answer, I hope this solves your problems.
If it does not, please let us know what paths are listed in your
AutoText dialog so we can figure out what else might have gone wrong.
Anyway let us know how it turns out.
One misunderstanding: the note PC on which I installed LO4.2 has been
running Win7 from the start.
I followed your advice and checked the paths and noticed that the PATH
to the autotext includes at the end the folder "autotext",
BUT, in fact, there was no such folder under that directory! (is this
not supposed to be created automatically during installation?)
So, I manually created that folder and now things seem to working as
they are supposed to be.
This is the kind of "twist in events" that ordinary mortal people do not
think of so often ...
