Running LibreOffice on Ubuntu 14.04. Am I supposed to delete these files, or is this a bug, or what?

Hi nic

That is where LO stores your backups. You can check that here:-


The option to configure that behaviour is here:-

(menu):ToolsOptions...Load/SaveGeneral (always create a backup copy)

You can certainly remove all such files if you do not want them.

If this helps then please tick the answer (✔)
...and/or show you like it with an uptick ()
