If I hide a section in LO Writer 7, and then un-hide it, it will stay hidden until i close LO and reopen the document. This is not a problem in LO6, or in LO7 on Linux.
It seems that LO7 on Win10 is a bit buggy overall.
Is there a reason for this? It seems to run perfectly on Linux from what I've seen.

Can't reproduce that on my Windows 10 machine with LO (portable version from Portableapps).

Can you upload a sample file? It may be linked to a special setting.

This file has the problem for me:

Works fine on my Windows 10 machine with your file (you can upload file here also with the paperclip icon (available in the question when you edit it).

I tried downgrading to and everything works fine..
I guess it's a 7.1 thing, maybe?

Seems so.

Not the only bug in 7.1. I reverted to 7.0 very quickly.

Worth a bug report perhaps.
