LibreOffice Language Issue?

Submitted by fireclaw on April 7, 2011 - 8:44am

I install LibreOffice Portable 3.3.2 set language to "Chinese(Simplified)"
Install complete
But I found the program interface is Chinese, but dialog language is English(e.g. click "Tools -> Options" pop up the dialog box's language is English)
Is LibreOffice Portable Language issue or I set up is wrong?

Hi, I am very pleased that you are also supporting LibreOffice on ! And it's very nice you provide us with a multi-lingual version. But I do have some issues with it, and ofcourse they were to be expected. It's not criticism but please see it as feedback for improvements.

1) LibreOffice is much slower starting up then OpenOffice. I don't know why since it is based on OpenOffice.

I like to report on my findings while upgrading LibreOffice 3.3.1 to 3.3.2 :

Data merge crash

Submitted by EOBeav on April 1, 2011 - 12:01pm

I've tested this problem in both the stable version of LO (3.3.2) as well as the most recent stable PortableApps version (3.3.2). This bug is only happening in the PortableApps version.

The problem is this: LO Portable crashes when printing a Writer document with merged data to a .pdf file. The document just freezes up, for several minutes, and I have to manually close the program and use document recovery to get it back. I've looked here in the forums and haven't come across the problem. Is this a known bug? Please let me know if I need to file something beyond this point.

Mega strange folders & files created

Submitted by cassini on March 31, 2011 - 5:34pm


Some time ago I installed L.O. Portable 3.3.0 on USB.
It seems to have created a big troop of files & folders in:

I cannot delete them because they all contain "forbidden" characters like /\:*?"| and more of that.
Windows file manager says: 'Cannot delete file: Cannot read from the source file or disk'
Also their filesize and dates of modification are absurd (some are of 1601/01/01 !)
Does anyone know how to delete them ?

Scrolling through Files menu sometimes lets it freeze on "Send" and begin a "Due to an unexpected error, LibreOffice crashed..." and "JRE Required" event. Unchecking the "Use Java runtime environment" in Options wasn't enough.

Hello there,

Already 4 hours passed since started the installer and still the installation process of the "full/custom version" is not finised on my 32Gb Corsair... actually about a quarter seems done already.

I guess I will wait a little bit longer and kill the process, make the install on a hdd partition and copy the files over to the memory stick.

On language selection

Submitted by Geddich Nixan on March 30, 2011 - 3:17pm

I downloaded the recent version of LibreOfficePortabel (3.3.2) and thought it was a great feature that I could choose which languages should be installed. The "one or all" option (i.e. either take only one language or take all of them) was very unsatisfactory for me. However I was quite disappointed to see that the new language selection only offers the options "one or two or all". Would it be possible to include a selection window in the installer where the user could choose those languages he needs?
