i would be grateful for advice on file permissions.    I am in my 80s, and
there is never a teenager when you need one!

the problem has changed!   yesterday I updated to version    this
installed properly, but there is no LibreOffice desktop icon, and I can
only open documents using WordPro.    this is generally OK;  I can amend or
edit, store, etc, but some of my docs are in landscape, and WordPro opens
these in portrait.    the right hand side of the document is not
available.   if you can tell me how to get the LibreOffice icon so I can
open in LibreOffice I would be grateful

thanks for your help and advice

Subject : Re: [libreoffice-users] Problem with LibreOffice 5

Hi :)
Please let us know if you have managed to fix this problem yet or if you
are still having problems.

If you would like more detail on how to change file-permissions please
ask.  Given your skill level with Win 10 it's likely you already know.  I
know up to Win7 and although 8, 8.1 and 10 are probably the same i'd prefer
to check it works before assuming 10 is the same.

If you tried resetting permissions and it doesn't appear to be that then
please let us know because it's not been a problem in LibreOffice, nor
OpenOffice, afaik before and we would like to explore the potential for it
happening again.  Alternatively if it has happened before and is just
extremely rare then someone else might have a ready answer for you this
Regards from
Tom :)

I am having trouble with this suite.   Normally I have been able to open,
amend, and save a document without any problem.    However, in the last
week or so I can only open a document in read-only form.   To change the
contents I have to open a copy for editing, save that under a different
name, delete the original, and then rename the new document to fit in with
my filing system.     This is time consuming, and very inconvenient.
The only event that I can identify as a possible cause is that about the
same time there was an automatic update to Windows 10, and there might be
some incompatablity between the updated Windows and LibreOffice.    (I have
since installed the latest update to LibreOffice5, but to no avail;  the
problem is still there).    However that is only a wild guess!     I would
be grateful for your advice and a remedy
