Hi folks,

I'm in the process of migrating from Win10 to Mint and am currently running dual boot. Version details below.

In Windows the calc/writer Save Document? option sequence is: Save, Don’t Save, Cancel

In Mint the sequence is: Don’t Save, Cancel, Save

No disasters yet but it's only a matter of time.

Is there any way I can make the option sequence consistent?

Regards,

John

For me it is the "Close" sequence, which asks what exactly to do and not the "Save Document" sequence. Anyway - my first assumption is, that you are using a version from your distribution and not the native version from http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/stable/. Supporting this assumption is the fact that on my installation on my Linux system the sequence is "Save, Don’t Save, Cancel" (native installatation) as it is on Windows.

[Sometimes distributions modify source code and compile their own thing]

As far as I know, what you see is consistent with the OS conventions.

Thanks Opaque,

Apologies - I should have made it clear that I meant the 'Save Document' prompt during the close sequence.

I updated LO to 6.1.5.2 (details below) to match the Windows version, but it made no difference. It's still Don't Save, Cancel, Save. Perhaps I should just get used to it as I won't be using the Windows version for much longer.

Regards,

John
