We’re long time Libreoffice users on Windows and openSUSE, but in the last few months my Wife’s Windows 10 install has been losing its settings every few weeks.
When this occurs, there are three signs:
File > Recent Documents is empty
Some specific Calc settings she relies on are reverted (specifically around Updating links and Trusted locations). Other settings are probably all reverted also, but she doesn’t heavily customise her settings.
A dialog announcing that LIbreoffice has updated appears, when it definitely has not*.
Does anyone have any suggestions? -other than backing up %APPDATA%\Roaming\LibreOffice\4 - Which I’m planning to start scripting now.
Never encountered anything like this on any prior Linux or Windows installs, or with this PC in the past.
- I am confident that it is unrelated to Libreoffice updates as Libreoffice is installed and updated via Ninite - manually every few weeks. Those updates work fine and retain the settings, whereas when the settings are lost can be weeks after the last Libreoffice update. I assume the dialog stating Libreoffice has updated is triggered by some sort of run-once flag that is lost withthe other settings.
