LibreOffice Portable Writer Still doesn't pin properly.

Submitted by gaveitatry on January 6, 2022 - 8:50am

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

Submitted by Motim on December 10, 2021 - 3:13am

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.

LibreOffice Portable Still Version 7.1.6 Won't Launch

Submitted by Abraxian on October 7, 2021 - 11:03am

OS = Windows 7 Pro. SP1 x64

I just downloaded and installed LibreOffice Still using this paf file: LibreOfficePortablePrevious_7.1.6_MultilingualStandard.paf.exe

I just launched the paf file and did the install manually as I don't use PortableApp Platform.

The install was to update my earlier version of LibreOffice Still.

Writer Separator field not displayed 7.2.1 (chapter numbering)

Submitted by Hagar Delest on September 27, 2021 - 1:13pm


If you add strings to the Before/After fields for Separator in the Chapter Numbering options, they do not appear unless there is a numbering.

Per the help, if numbering is set to None, "Only the character or symbol defined in the Separator fields appears at the beginning of the numbered list".

Thus, even with no numbering, the strings in the Before/After fields shall be displayed.

Works fine with the 7.2.1 version installed on Xubuntu (21.04). Was working fine with portable 7.0.5.

Submitted by Totoche on September 20, 2021 - 10:18pm


I can't find the information to know in which directory we have to put the plugins for libreoffice?

I saw that the dictionaries are in D:\PortAPPs_com_Platform\PortableApps\LibreOfficePortable\App\libreoffice\share\extensions\dict-*
so I tried to put the *.oxt in D:\PortAPPs_com_Platform\PortableApps\LibreOfficePortable\App\libreoffice\share\extensions
But it doesn't work

Thank you for helping me...

[Fixed] LibreOffice 7.2.0 hash incorrect

Submitted by janvr0 on September 4, 2021 - 7:47am

When trying to install the (Dutch) version 7.2.0, I got the following message;

The downloaded copy of Libre Office is not valid and can't be installed. Due to either an incomplete download or a network problem. (The latter is certainly not the problem).
Try to start the update once again when everything is completed.
(I tried 3 times without success)

Toolbar on Calc spreadsheet

Submitted by Motim on September 2, 2021 - 11:36am

In "LibreOffice" I like the "Tango" toolbar since I found this program, and keep copying it from one version to the newer.
In the 7.2.0 version something is missing at the right end comparing to 7.1.5 version. (Only one pen icon)
I cannot find what makes this difference. Both versions icons are set to Large.
Attached screenshots to demonstrate (in one image). (could not find the link to attach it)
Answers will be appreciated.

Submitted by Daywalkerswife on August 13, 2021 - 6:16pm

Dear Forum,
I need to know where I can change the way how to open hyperlinks. By default it works with control and mouse click. I once changed this, so just the mouse click alone opened hyperlinks, bur unfortunately I can't remember where this option is hiding and I need to redo this setting since it got lost.
Please can anyone help me to find this option? My version is 7.1.42 portable. Thanks a lot in advance.
