2016-12-13 20:37:19 +0200 asked a question Drop down menus are blank

Libre Office 5 came with UBUNTU upgrade to V16.04 has this issue is with just one ODT file. Same file works OK in UBUNTU V12.04 and in WIN XP

However, in UBUNTU V16.04 and using Libre Office V5 for most of the time (I said most) I cannot get any drop down Menus. Just grey boxes - no sign of any text or choices. Ctrl+S will save my file and all the entries can be made normally. Very occasionally the condition clears and everything is normal again. For no reason I know of!

I tried pasting the contents into a NEW doc. Same result. Usually slow to load. Swapped memory allocations in OPTIONS to 200 Mbyte but still no good. Still the same. It's nuts please help me. Urgent!

Sincerely and thanks Berry

2016-11-15 20:59:21 +0200 asked a question Why do larger docs take so long and where are the menus?

Since Ubuntu upgrade to V16.04.1 Libre Office takes so long to load up docs. Then the various drop down menus (File - Edit, Insert, View, Format, Styles etc) do not appear for ages. Small docs are much better but something isn't right here. Could you please advise my best course of action and give me instructions on how to proceed. {Uninstall - Re-install etc} if you think that the best option. All other App software appears to be normal. In anticipation I thank you Berry

2014-04-21 21:01:09 +0200 asked a question OPEN OLD DOCUMENT SEARCH: how to preserve Column widths

O.S. UBUNTU 12.04 - when I want to open a document -click FILE>OPEN to see DETAILS of HDDs in LH "NAME" column. Need to drag this column wider every time I do this. How can I preserve the width with no dragging?

Point two: The "Recent Documents" are not always available - "doesn't exist" banner

Sincerely, Berry
