Hi Guys,
I installed v5.1.0
Tested Writer App only. It launches but
- main window comes up without menu;
- sidebar at the right is kinda damaged (two vertical scroll bars and no icons);
- when trying to open any file its name appears in title bar but the content never displayed
Tested on XP Pro SP3 (32bit) and Win 7 Home Premium x64
I was compelled switching to 5.0.5 (previous), which brings all back to normal on both systems
Any similar experiences with the App?
Thanks in advance
Best regards

Please post a detailed note in the LibreOffice Support forum so more folks can see this (most won't see a comment on a news story about a single release). Please include OS version, 32v64-bit, full install path, new vs upgrade, etc. If an upgrade, please try a fresh install first. If it fails on a fresh install, please temporarily install the local version to determine if it is an issue with the app itself as well.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
