[libreoffice-users] Interesting problem opening files in Libreoffice 6.2


Hello. I am a serious business user of Libreoffice 6.2 [latest version as
of May 8, 2019]
I have used Libreoffice since version 3 and this is my first problem with
it.

I use insurance claim forms that a company sends me in a .docx format. Then
I open them in Libreoffice. This time when I did so Libreoffice won't let
me edit the document. I put the document in edit mode in Libreoffice. That
didn't allow editing either; when I put my cursor in a text box [I have
text boxes where i can say yes/ no etc] nothing happens.

So I opened up Libreoffice writer in Safe Mode. Then I dragged my docx file
into it. Then it opens in Libreoffice and allows me to change textboxes. I
am not sure though if this is a good outcome. Because the format is
slightly different; the page reads straight down rather than 2 pages on
the screen at a time. But for the moment it is good enough.

I would prefer to not have to use the safe mode to allow editing for
my.docx file opening in Libreoffice. I add that I am using Windows 7 64
bit. Is this happening to anyone else? Anything that I should do? I am not
any expert on Libreoffice. I also add that all previous versions of
Libreoffice did not have this problem for me. It seems to be a new issue in
6.2.

Thank you
John
