LibreOffice 5.4.1 portable package on Win-7 x64: install fail repeatedly

Submitted by Krakalow on October 7, 2017 - 12:35pm

(Previous LO version had been installed badly ... on USB-stick; and was not used so far.)
Newly announced LO 5.4.1 portable on PortableApps noticed this when update process was started and recommended new full download of LibreOfficePortable_5.4.1_MultilingualStandard.paf.exe.
This was done twice with the same failure when installing.
A second download of the package (identical file) also ended with the same failure, i.e.
aborting the installation with: Could not save the file "Radial05-Sphere-Blue.svg".
Stick-medium should be ok. ...

Fonts used in LO

did I got it right:
when the font-directory within the portableapps-folder contains font-files, the system-fonts are not used anymore?
I have seen this after stripping the LO-font-zip to that folder an odg- drawing showed differnt, but after copying the
missing font-file from system-folder to that folder, everything worked. so the question: feature or bug?

Any Way to Save Calc, Writer, etc. Files to Different Folders?

Submitted by wr4 on July 6, 2017 - 6:43pm

As a long time Excel and Word user, I have my Excel spreadsheets in one folder and my Word documents in another folder and I would like to direct LibreOffice to these individual folders. Is there an extension/add-on that gives us this capability? As far as I can tell there is only one file path for 'My Documents'.

Install Error

Submitted by wr4 on July 3, 2017 - 6:51am

In attempting to install LibreOfficePortable_5.3.3_MultilingualStandard.paf, I get the following error:

Extract: error writing to file Venn05.svg

I click OK and the only option available is Cancel. The destination folder contains 8,221 files, slightly less than X-LibreOffice's file count of 8,495.

Any way to correct this?
