Spot of bother here.

I'm creating .odt files from a home-brew application, and using LO to 'polish up' the formatting. The files contain a lot of frames anchored as characters - each has text (a chord symbol) that appears above the line of lyrics.

This used to work reasonably well; the last document I had prepared is dated February 8th, and there was no issue (the was version 5.something - possibly 5.0.x, possibly 5.1.0; but I can't be sure). Today, for the same document, the frames are pretty well all positioned in the same wrong place, the text is invisible, and they have a box (the style says no box).

With some effort, I've reverted back from 5.1.1 (from the LO PPA) to (from the ubuntu PPA) and now things are more or less working as they used to. So something's broken since mid-Feb - presumably LO as my files haven't changed.

Anyone else having problems, or can shed light please?

Is there a way of reverting to an earlier 5.x? Synaptic doesn't offer these, and makes switching versions something close to agonizingly hard.


(Mint 17, btw, in case it's relevant)
