Problems with install Java support for LO Base

Submitted by Scuianut on July 30, 2022 - 2:45am

Hello, I have a problem with LibreOffice 7.3.x that I use at work as I cannot install programs on the PC (admin needed). He asks me for Java for LO Base, but downloading it from Vs. site the "exe" file is a "online installer" type (it wants to download the data directly from the server, but this type of activity is blocked). Is there the possibility of an "offline installer" including archives? Thank you

LibreOffice 2.3.1 Portable

Submitted by Motim on March 18, 2022 - 6:37am

I am following each new version, and I wrote about this bug before, but it comes again.
In version 7.1.8 (which I use now) - in the upper left corner of "Calc" spreadsheet, there are two pen-icons , to direct the writing direction : right to left or left t right/
In the last version 2.3.1 again those icons are hidden at the far upper end, only if you click on the >> icon they appear.
Well, I have prepared two screenshots, but cannot see any 'link' where to attach them.
(May be after I save this post)
Answers will be appreciated.

I just updated my LibreOffice Portable (Still version) MultilingualStandard and at the end of the 'install' there is a directory left behind titled ~PRESERVEDIRECTORY2. The directory contents is 92.3 MB in size and it contains 1,833 files.

What is this directory?

Is it safe to delete it?

Why was it put there in the first place?

[Fixed] LibreOffice Portable 7.2.5 doesn't have all available languages in installer

Submitted by noki on January 18, 2022 - 4:42am

The list of possible installation languages in LibreOffice 7.2.5 Portable MultilingualAll is missing quite a few languages like Dutch. This removes the method of just installing the selected language plus English (using the "Remove Extra Languages" during installation)

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 Launcher, it wouldn't let me pin LibreOffice Writer Still to the taskbar. That option is grayed out.

Place to download from

From where can I download "LibreOffice" portable version 7.1.7 or 7.1.8 not in .msi forma. The last one I downloaded and working is "LibreOfficePortable_7.1.6_MultilingualAll.paf.exe" file.
Cannot use 7.2.2, (nor 7.2.1), it has some bug in the 'Calc' toolbar I wrote them long ago in previous versions.
Answers will be appreciated.

LibreOffice Portable Available for Download at LibreOffice Site but Not at PortableApps

Submitted by Abraxian on November 8, 2021 - 7:57am

I note that it is now possible to download LibreOffice Portable from LibreOffice's own site here:

However, it is not downloadable from PortableApps here: The version on offer there is still at 7.2.1.

Seems like someone not clicking a button somewhere.
