2017-02-15 15:06:21 +0200 commented question Calc not saving changes

I am well aware that CSV is only a text file, and I am not using formulas, formatting or anything of the sort. I changed some text, pressed save, closed, and opened again find no changes were saved.

version is 5.3, running on a ubuntu 16.10

2017-02-15 14:47:42 +0200 asked a question Calc not saving changes

Calc won't save changes made in a csv file (saving as CSV. and I dont want to save it in any other format). It asks if I am sure I want to keep the format, I confirm, save again, and several more times just to be sure, close the file, and open it again to find that none of my changes have been saved. Using libreoffice at this point is becoming so painful and frustrating that it seems to me that paying for proprietary software is well worth it, compared to this half-developed near-useless set of tools that, even though free, cost far more mental effort andfrustration than they are actually worth it.

Can anybody explain why clicking on the save button, and confirming saving changes (repeatedly) doesn't do anything????

2017-02-14 13:19:03 +0200 asked a question "Open" shows all types of documents, not application-relevant ones

Clicking on "open" / "open recent" on any given libreoffice programs shows all kinds of recent documents, making it rather impractical (particularly "open recent") It would be far more useful to have impress only show recent presentations for example, or calc to show only spreadsheets and so on. Right now, the "Open" functions in libreoffice are not at all useful.

Is there a way to change this default, so that when I click on open I see only file types associated with the specific libreoffice application I am using, or at least only ones associated by default with it? I realize that libreoffice is far more flexible when it comes to file extensions, but this has the side effect of cluttering the open/open recent dialogues and options.

Thanks, but that didn't do anything. libreoffice is pretty much useless at this point

2016-11-03 19:07:40 +0200 asked a question writer freeze and crashes computer all the time

I am about to completely give up on libreoffice.

How can it be possible that it freezes and crashes the ENTIRE COMPUTER simply by scrolling down in a document?

Any document (with or without tables, with or without inserted images, with or without formatted text) more than 2 pages long crashes the computer if I decide I want to see what is written at the end of the document, and scroll down. This is absolutely unacceptable!!!

Following other questions, I have disable all setting that appear to cause conflict, but it keeps globally freezing the entire system and crashing, unless I kill it from a terminal. ALso I have tried removing and reinstalling, which was useless.

Is there a solution for this situation? Or do I have to start searching for a program that actually works?
