Re: [libreoffice-users] Strange behavior in Writer 6.3.1


Update:

I just upgraded to LO 6.3.2 and the same issue remains.

FYI, I don't use the file manager to open my files. I use a keyboard
shortcut that starts up LO Writer, then File -> Open Recent or ^O
(File ->Open). In both instances, the file opened on startup is
neither replaced nor closed but remains open and must be closed
separately.

This does NOT happen with LO Calc - if I open this with a (different)
keyboard shortcut, the do eithe ran open recent or open (exitsing)
command, the untitled spreadsheet opened on startup is gone once the
recent or existing file is opened. This is the old behavior with LO
6.2, and whether this is desirable or not, it should be consistent
across the whole suite.

I say it is undesirable to have the untitled new file require separate
closure when an existing file is opened. This is new behavior and
goes against 30+ years of most word processors not working that way.
