When doing mail merge all goes well until the adjusting - trying to click the boxes in question LO crashes. And it is the absolutely latest updated version for Ubuntu. I would very much appreciate a fix to this annoying little bug; otherwise LO is excellent. And I have a feeling I did not have this problem on earlier versions, e.g. 4...

First, try to upgrade to a current version (5.2 or 5.3). That may be done also for older Ubuntu using LibreOffice Fresh ppa.

So there's a newer version, I just installed via apt and thought it automatically offers the latest. Okay, I'll try that. But to be honest this kind of bug should not exist regardless of the version..

Thanks for the advice pal!

I don't know if that is a bug, or a user profile corruption, or something else. I just mentioned the version and advised accordingly.

WRT "should not exist regardless of the version" - any bug is better when it doesn't exist. Patches are welcome! :)

Hey presto! After little tinkering, installing and reinstalling it is working now! Thank you so very much, Mike!

.. And it is now; the merging process differed slightly from the earlier towards the end, but as said, it is working now & crashing no more. ;)
