LO Writer 220.127.116.11 under Window 7 Prof 64bit ESU SPI up-to-date to Dec 20 updates on ASUS PC
I have a 60 page document split into about 10 page layouts of either 1 or 2 columns. Additionally the 1 column pages are usually formatted as 2 column sections. It’s in odt format.
After saving the document and reopening some of the page breaks are lost, usually from 2 column to 1 columns. I reinsert the manual breaks to correct it, save, close and reopen and they, or another page break, is lost again. It’s getting frustrating.
I downloaded and installed 18.104.22.168 but now the document wont open. The LO Window is either blank or the document is displayed but any click with the mouse or a key press (e.g. page down) causes it to hang (“program is not responding”) so I have to kill it. When I reopen, whether I choose recovery or not, the same problem occurs. Ditto in safe mode.
On a Linux laptop with LO 22.214.171.124 I opened the file OK, made a small change and saved but it still does not open in LO7 on the Windows PC.
On a Win10 PC with OO4 I opened OK and saved as Word 97 format but it still does not open in LO7 on the Windows PC.
I’ve now reverted to 126.96.36.199 and the problem remains but at least I can continue to work on the document.
Whilst the document is not confidential I’m reluctant to post it on the net but would be happy to make it available via Dropbox if anyone would like to investigate / fix it.
Thanks for reading.
