Windows 10 Pro – LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 64-bit - Writer .docx and .odt documents.
I wish to clear the entire list of autocorrect (user collected) entries. Tools, AutoCorrect, AutoCorrect Options, Word Completion, (Collected Words this list).
If I delete every item in the above list, they simply return the next time a document is opened. This is true if I clear the list with the document that added them, or if I delete the entries while in a blank document.
If I delete every acor_en-US, en-GB etc .dat file from C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\4\user\autocorr folder, or from C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\share\autocorr, the Collected Words list gets repopulated the next time I open a document.
If I delete my Profile 4 folder and start with a blank default 4 folder, the list is again repopulated the next time I open a document.
Does each document carry its own embedded word list, and the reason why the list repopulates with a new Profile 4 folder? If yes, how can I permanently remove collected words? Whatever I try, the same items reappear. If I copy and paste text to a blank document, the Collected Words, from the source document, appear in the list of the new document.
Please note, my question is specific to Word Completion, Collected Words, not AutoCorrect in general.
I have searched the community, but found nothing about permanently removing Collected Words. Or at least found nothing that worked.
Thank you in advance for any assistance.
