LibreOffice Math is Ugly Now

Submitted by talldave on June 8, 2012 - 4:26pm

Since update equations in LibreOffice Writer (Math equations) are ugly.

Some of the equation objects looked very wrong, but opening them up and closing them mostly fixed them.

The lines in square roots don't connect. There is a weird font issue, so the symbols just don't look as nice. Some of the parenthesis are far too thick.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling LibreOffice. No luck.

LO 3.5.4 - Unusable if Help Tips for Toolbar buttons is checked?

Submitted by plum40 on June 7, 2012 - 3:47pm

After several days of trying to get this version to work, I've discovered that if the Help - Tips (for Toolbar buttons) is checked in Options - LibreOffice - General, then LO 3.5.4 becomes unusable. I don't know if I'm the only one with this or why it happens, as the non portable version on my PC at home doesn't suffer from in the same way.

This option was checked in my previous copy of LO Portable 3.5.3 and worked well.

If I've done something wrong or missed something please advise. Thanks.

[Fixed] Cannot eject USB stick after running LibreOffice 3.5.4 from it

Submitted by strawbeard on June 6, 2012 - 9:27pm


1) I ran LibreOffice Portable 3.5.4 from PortableApps Platform on a USB stick.

2) After terminating the application and the platform, I tried to eject ("deactivate") the USB stick. OS (Windows 2000) denied the request; obviously, some data object on the stick was still in use.

[Fixed] LibreOffice Upgrade: wrong Bullets

Submitted by zappix on June 5, 2012 - 9:38am

My latest upgrade to LibreOfficePortable has corrupted my bullet lists: The characters have changed to different symbols.

I discovered, that the default symbols obviously come from the open symbol font, which I could find in a path among the other font files.

Then I tried to register open symbol in windows and this fixed it: my usual bullets were back!

Unfortunately, registering components in windows isn't the idea of portable software and wasn't necessary in the past...

[Closed] German dictionary lost when upgrading LibreOffice

Submitted by zappix on June 5, 2012 - 9:28am

After the last upgrades of LibreOfficePortable the german dictionary (default, also system and installation language) doesn't work any more: no correction, no hyphenation.

Funny is, the dictionary still exists, is registered as an extension, so everthing seems okay, but it isn't shown among the languages in the linguistic options.

I had to do a fresh install to get it working as expected.

This happened twice, for the last two upgrades, so it doesn't seem to be fixed or addressed as a bug...

LibreOffice Portable won't run from CD

Submitted by bl01 on May 30, 2012 - 11:58pm

I'm using LO and Win XP Home SP3.

I followed instructions on the support page to run LibreOffice Portable from a CD. I installed it on a hard drive, ran it a few times to generate default and custom settings, and then burned the whole directory structure to a CD.

When I try to start it from CD, the splash screen opens, and the progress bar advances until "Synchronizing repository for shared extensions" appears. Then it closes due to:
Fatal Error
The application cannot be started.

404 error from main D/L page

Submitted by sweetnuttin on May 29, 2012 - 9:11pm

Hi all,

I just have 3-4 quick questions if you please?

D/L'ing LO which goes okay!

But under the download link it has:
Bug Fix: Visual C runtime warning even once installed
which is link of: Bug Fix: Visual C runtime warning even once installed
But when clicking that link - it gives a Page Not Found (404 Error)!
Is this something to be concerned about??

is it me or rather my machine or is rather bug-ridden?
It crashes on pdf-export, crashes from time to time for no specific reason, sometimes won't open, sometimes tries to restore a file for no reason (no crash beforehand, will not happen if file is opened by OO).
I don't get it. I run OO port. (3.2) along with LO port, right now I'm using OO because of the bugs.
LO 3.4 (I think) ran without much incidents.
A clean install does not help, still the same glitches.
