My Writer used to work fine in that when I applied the Bold & Colour change attributes to say a line, it saved the file & those changes were kept.
But now its only keeping any changes I make to lettering, and dumping the Bold & Colour changes.
This has been with new .ODT files I created.
I tried removing LO & installing the latest version from the website in case it was my (Mint) version that was broken, but no change.
Could it be Java or a kernel update that broke it?
