I am having a major problem that started not long ago.
Documents Directory is selected. I click on “New Folder” at top or click on documents and choose
create new folder from the menu, the try to name the folder.
I get a consistent error message:
“Can’t find the specified file.
Make Sure you specify the correct path and file name.”
When I click try again, I get a message that the file or folder does not exist.
So weird since I’m not looking for a file or folder. And the error messages make no sense.
I always end up with an empty "New Folder" in my documents.
When I save a new document, I can name it and save it into a current folder, but can't make a new
(named) folder to put it into.
I’ve checked a few folders in my document directory and they are “read only.” The documents inside
are readable, but I can’t make a new folder to move them into.
I uninstalled LibreOffice and reinstalled: same problem. Tried another uninstall and removed
everything in my registry pertaining to Libre Office, but that didn't help again after I
I’m hoping someone can help.
