LibreOffice Portable Writer Still doesn't pin properly.

Sorry for asking annoying questions. I was told that you could pin OpenOfficePortable.exe to the taskbar to pin it, but a separate icon would appear when running it. It was suggested to me to use LibreOffice instead. I was told that LibreOffice supports taskbar pinning. I installed LibreOffice Portable (Still). From the PortableApps.com Launcher, it wouldn't let me pin LibreOffice Writer Still to the taskbar. That option is grayed out. So I added a shortcut to it to my Start Menu (I also tried pinning it to Start, but that's not necessary as long as there is a shortcut inside the Start Menu). Right-clicking the shortcut from the Start Menu let me pin the application to my taskbar. But unfortunately, a separate icon appears when running LibreOffice Portable Writer Still. So now I have two taskbar icons. Is there a way to fix this? I just want the pinned taskbar icon and for it to use that same pinned icon when I run the program.

Main Only

Only pinning the main EXE, LibreOfficePortable.exe, is supported at the current time. I'm not sure if our method will support the additional apps or not. I'll add it to the list of things to research.

tested

I've made some relevant tests yesterday on two Windows 7 32 & 64-bit machines. New and old platform installations.
It's not possible to pin some apps using the platform's contextual menu. Among those apps, LibreOfficePortable.exe (Fresh 7.2.4).

Confirmed

I've confirmed this with Platform 19.2. I have a fix implemented for the next release and it's on the tracker: https://portableapps.com/node/28593
