My PC sent loads of Phish until MSE quarantined LO 5.1.5 - I got 6 "mail delivery failed" messages this morning.

The email was:

Hello,

There is something important I need to tell you, that you'd really like to hear, so please read it here /edit:probably spam-url removed /edit by karolus

Cheers, daniel.karger

I've installed 5.1.4 and MSE doesn't object.

I'm putting this here as well as in a comment to the first post to make sure that people see it.

I have just had the same problem on Win 7 with microsoft security essentials. I was running LO 5.1.5. My wife's PC has LO 5.1.2 again on Win 7 and mse reported no problems.

2016-08-23 12:52:27 +0100 asked a question Find function returns #VALUE! if the string is not found?

LibreOffice calc: Version: 5.1.4.2 - Build ID: f99d75f39f1c57ebdd7ffc5f42867c12031db97a - Win7

Why does the find function return #VALUE! if the FindText is not found?

I have:

Fragment of sheet

This "Fragment of sheet" is supposed to be a clickable link but peview doesn't show it. If it doesn't show up here is the link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/n2wljsesacp...

I want to use FIND("e",A1)>=0 as the conditional part in an IF function which works well if the FindText is found but if the FindText is not found then the #VALUE spoils the result.

2016-07-03 17:34:47 +0100 asked a question Printer hang

I posted a question recently here.

I have done a bit more research and found that one part of the document was flagged with a blue wavy underline. No where in the help can I find what this is supposed to mean.

However, If I alter the text to make the blue wavy underline go away the document will print.

Surely this is a bug.

If the document hangs the printer then, it seems to me that, the error (whatever it is) should be flagged up in a dialog and the print attempt should not proceed.

What do you think?

Ah-ha! So, the next question is how do we report bugs?

2016-06-23 14:43:55 +0100 asked a question email alerts

If I try to change my profile - subscriptions email alert options then click update my changes look fine - just what I selected. BUT, if I then leave the email alert page and then return to it the changes have been unmade - they all revert to "never" for everything.

What am I doing wrong please.

Mike.

2016-06-23 14:09:47 +0100 asked a question Printer hang (HP wireless)

I have an HP Deskjet 3050A J611 Series wireless printer.

I have LibreOffice version: 5.1.3.2 Build ID: 644e4637d1d8544fd9f56425bd6cec110e49301b

OS: Win 7 64 bit SP1

I have a number of LibreOffice writer documents which print well. However, I have one which isn't apparently that disimilar to the others which just sits in the print queue forever and when I try to cancel it, it still remains there with a status of "Deleting - Printing". I have put the document in my dropbox here https://www.dropbox.com/s/566uym8y3hf...

BTW the curry is excellent.

Thanks in anticipation, Mike

Mike.
