I have the latest Windows 10 version and LO (x64). Writer doesn't save the last position despite the steps I have undertaken mentioned on I'm wondering if the length of the document has anything to do with this. The document has 766 pages and when I open the document it initially says that there are 852 pages and then it counts back until arriving at the correct number. Could somebody please help me. Many thanks.

Hello. I am the author of that page. A couple of questions as you explained two issues

a) Is the count of the pages wrongly shown initially?

b) Did you try to view the page count from menu dialog/properties?

c) What happened with last cursor position? Is it not working.

As I said, it's a bug, one of the reasons I reverted to 7.0.

a) yes b) taskbar c) not working, just appears somewhere in document

Interestingly enough, according to the last comment (#17) in the bug report, the way it has been "fixed" may not fix the issue at all!

I just did some test: my computer remembers the last position when it is a "small" document but not when it is a "large" one as mentioned above.

Yes, the answer is therefore that it is a bug but difficult to say if and when it will be fixed.

Why is this a correct answer (I can only see requests for additional information, which do not answer the question and hence should be a comment)?
