hi ive successfully installed lo few days ago.

but main menu (in writer,calc and all other lo apps) is not clickable (when clicking on a menu item like File,Table nothing heppans). (I can reach menu items with alt+key though) thanks for any help.

os: windows 10. this is hebrew version of lo.

Looks to me like a possible case of user profile corruption.
(and be careful with the backup to not lose your templates and scripts e.g.)

Do menus work for you in other programs, such as your Web browser and file manager?

@Lupp thx. restarting in safe mode did not resolve my problem and menu is not clickable. even in the start screen, where you choose wirter or files to open, the start menu is not clickable but accessable via alt+key thogh

@lazarus477 yes. all programs run ok in my windows 10 including menus.

I suspect that the problem is related to hebrew version. the menu has hebrew and english items and also is left alligned (hebrew menus should be right alligned) and not clickable. also with previous versions of lo I had lots of problems concerning alignments\direction of writing. like brackets appeared oposite direction and many more

Did you already try an English user interface, or one using another very common "western" language?

@Lupp thanks.

No, I didn't try. I've just downloaded the default. I need to reinstall and customise the installation right? Also Is there any one else who've dowloaded the default installation in arabic or hebrew in windows 10 and encountered issues?
