Hi Stuart,

Tom, *, of course there are alternatives among the LaTex  editors and Tex
renderings, but rather than sending Paul off on a wild goose chase, better
to ask him for the additional details we need triage his issue.

So, Paul--are you working natively only with ODF format in Writer .odt, and
Math .odf components?

Always one .ODT. document.

Are you using a LibreOffice extension (TexMaths, or OOoLatex)  to manipulate
your formulas or just Math? If so, version?

No extensons, just LO.

Are you moving document round trip (export/reopen)  to OOXML?


Are you making any use,  by import, of Microsoft formula originated

No. The dox were created by LO Writer on Linux, by me. The dox never left my computer to be edited with an other version of LO Writer or the like.

Hi :)
This is just in Math, nothing to do with Calc is it?

I don't know what is causing it.  Is there an alternative such as using
Scribus or LaTeX?  I think it's fairly easy to get LibreOffice to "Save As
..." into a format that Scribus can use easily but i don't know how
difficult Scribus is to learn in a hurry.  I only gave it 2mins and that
clearly wasn't enough, for me.
Regards from
Tom :)

Hi all,

every now and then some formulas get lost irrecoverably in my documents.
Some boxes are empty then and a double-click into them opens the editor
showing an empty pane.

This behaviour is not reproducable and happens somewhere in my documents,
not just where I edit it.

This is really bad and I have to check the whole documents for lost
formulas. Not a pleasure with dox having 200 pages and are steadily
increasing in size. This is kind of a time bomb, where you never know
you get hit.

Googling around revealed, that this must be an old bug, e.g.:

Yet, I didn't find an answer.

Any idea?

I'm on Linux: LO Writer Ver. ArchLinux build-4
