2021-06-06 09:51:39 +0200 marquée comme meilleure réponse Writer freezes when left alone

Odd title but that's the shortest I could do.

Running Windows 10 (up-to-date), LO 7.0.1.2

I open a document, enter in some text (or not), then open another app to do, say, research. Go back to LO and the document is frozen. Sort of.

  • Clicking within document does nothing
  • Scrolling doesn't work
  • I can click on file>save and be able to save but
  • clicking on the Save icon does not
  • I can click the X or do file>exit then reopen. All is well.

But why is it freezing?

I've not tested it with Calc but I can if needed.

Started with the 7.0.1.2 update I think. It is a pain to keep doing this every time I go to another program. I'm afraid of losing what I've entered. I'm a writer so losing bits of a manuscript is terrifying.

2020-11-06 22:39:26 +0200 marquée comme meilleure réponse cannot add custom dictionary [solved]

I'm having problems with the dictionaries. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the program from a new download (but I did notice it maintained my preferences). I am a writer and I use a custom dictionary for each series or book. At first, I just dropped in the Wordbook folder from OO. They were visible in the Tools>Options>Writing Aids. And words that were special to that document and that dictionary were not marked. But then I saw there was no "add to dictionary" option when I right clicked. And if I hit F7, the "Add to Dictionary" button was grayed out.

I removed the Wordbook folder then copied it back in, using just the standard.dic and removing the rest. I got the missing add to dictionary and the button wasn't gray. But now if I add a new dictionary to test it, when I leave the program and come back, that dictionary is gone. And if I do a search for standard.dic (after the reinstall), there isn't one in the LibreOffice folder nor is there a Wordbook folder.

What is going on and what can I do to fix this?

LibreOffice 6.0.2.1 / Win10 64bit

Should I start from scratch? Uninstall and reinstall? Or did the safe mode basically do that?
