He folks, I'm using LO calc on Debian 9.5. For easy access I've created for one document several symbolic links in different folders. Opening of the linked document works fine but as soon as I'm going to save the document the following will happen:

  • a temporary file is generated in the destination-folder
  • the symbolic link is deleted
  • the temporary file is renamed and a copy of the document is created. Now you have two files.

Is there anywhere a switch to avoid the recreation of the opened file?

I guess it is this bug:

Summary: 6.1 overwrites Symbolic Links with files
