"" <><br><br><br>Hi :)<br>Looks like 
someone just having a "bad hair day" (or week or something).<br><br>Inevitably LibreOffice does 
have imperfections, just as all other<br>software, and everything else does too.  In some cases 
they can be<br>over-come quite easily by switching from the default "Fresh" to the<br>more mature 
"Still" branch - or vice-versa.  In Linux-land we often<br>have choices such as using the tweaked 
versions in our distro's repos<br>(through a package manager) or download from the official 
LibreOffice<br>website and install, or even get the source-code and "make" or "build"<br>if you are 
a purist and using Gentoo or Arch or Slackware or<br>something.  So for most of us point&click 
users we have 2 or 3 easy<br>options.<br><br>I suspect that the major problem is that the default 
version of<br>LibreOffice is always the latest "Fresh", unlike other OpenSource<br>projects that 
give the most solidly matured branch to noobs and then<br>leave it to geeks to find their way 
around to getting the "more<br>advanced" one.<br><br>Anyway, i too have been very happily using 
LibreOffice for over 5<br>years and everyone i meet who has used it (apart from one) has 
also<br>been very happy with it - or become happy once i help them switch to<br>the "Still" 
branch.<br><br>Regards from<br>Tom :)<br><br><br><br>On 19 November 2015 at 15:39, Cley Faye

For the record, right now, I'm using LibreOffice on my office computer<br>> running Debian without

work both<br>> with and on LibreOffice.<br>><br>> The purpose of this list is to provide help to 
users, and it's working as<br>> fine as LibreOffice itself. It is not here so you can vent out and 
just<br>> drop random, non-constructive nonsense.<br>><br>> Sorry for the noise,<br>><br>> Cley
