I was just curious as to what the next version of LibreOfficePortable will be. Can we expect a 3.4.x version next, or is the intention that the portable version will stick to the 3.3.x releases? Also (probably asking the impossible) can someone indicate more or less when we can expect the next portable version? Just a rough guess (accurate to within a month) would suffice.

I've got a file using indentation and tabs, created with OpenOffice Portable 3.2.0, the latest portable version currently available. The layout is fine in OpenOffice. When I open that file in LibreOffice Portable 3.3.2, the layout is broken.
Is this a general problem in LibreOffice, or is it an issue of the portable version?
I created a small file that demonstrates this problem. The file is self-explaining. Unfortunately, I did not find a way to upload it. So, if someone wants to take a look at it, just send me a message, and I will mail it.
Like in the subject: I (edit: sometimes) cannot choose german language for spellchecking in LibreOfficeCalc Portable. I can choose
Dänisch (danish), the list entry before
Deutsch (german), but when selecting german, it always jumps to
English (USA). I can select other entries, but german simply is unselectable. Autocorrection does not work (edit: then) either.
Thesaurus and syllable division work, though.
I reinstalled the full install (clean install) because I used the experimental remove unwanted languages feature at first, but no luck, same issue.
I have developed an integrated OpenOffice Portable Base .odb file in version 3.20. The database has a number of related tables and several macros. When the database works, it is a great tool. However, I have become extremely frustrated with the number of times that the file has crashed and been unrecoverable. I have been advised that it would be more stable to create separate program and data files but the instructions for doing this on various forums is extremely complex and confusing.
I'd like to transfer the LibreOffice Portable program from my current USB drive to a new USB drive because of lack of the disk space.
Please tell me if it's possible and how.
(I'd like to use the current LibreOffice Portable program because I'd like to use the current settings.)
I'm attempting to use the -convert-to command line option to convert files between formats without using LibreOffice's GUI. Here's an example command:
LibreOfficePortable.exe -headless -convert-to pdf untitled.odt
The command executes silently (returning no output of any sort), but doesn't appear to create an output file.
I've tried the command from both the Windows command line and from MSYS. I've also tried several other variants (such as calling soffice.exe directly) with the same result.
Has anyone had success with this operation?
Document File 'xyz.ods' is locked for editing by: Generic User 26.03.11 14:35 - OPEN READ ONLY / COPY / CANCEL
has anyone come across the above when editing files on different machines? The files were saved and closed correctly, but they seem to keep getting 'locked for editing'
what are these files ?
do I need them all ?
I suspect these to be Lang files, in this case I only need US-en.
I have already cleaned this folder:
and in this folder I found chinese french croatian hungarian japanese and korean
and I ask you, WTF ? my windows in Eng, my App platform is Eng so why would I need this junk ?
Since the version 3.3 of LibreOffice Portable Draw it's now possible to import and modify PDF documents. This is possible because of the already contained PDF Import extension (look at Tools -> Extension Manager). In older versions this extension had to be installed.
After I've imported a PDF file, I had to find that some symbols of the original document were not imported correctly. For example, arrows and check boxes were replaced by strange characters. Probably the above-mentioned extension is responsible for this error. Or knows someone a solution for this problem?
On the page of many PortableApps.com apps there is a tutorial for the best settings to optimize running the application as smoothly and fast as possible. The portable Firefox page has such a Tut linked to it. What I'd like to ask if it is possible to create such a Tut for LibreOffice portable too.
What I'd like to know is whether to enable or disable features such as usage of cache memory, enabling recording of last used projects etc. How should the settings be for best possible performance ? Especially startup time of LOo is very long right now.
