I have a .txt file that I want to open and edit in libreoffice calc. The file contain data in table form using coma as separators.
I can open the file in calc with no trouble, and the table is read correctly by calc. However, it doesn't save any changes. I want to save it as a .txt, so in the save dialogue I am choosing the text formatting (instead of the libreoffice extension) and apparently the save proceeds, however there are no changes made to the file.
Note that saving the file in any other format seems to work ok, however I need it in txt, but Calc cant handle that right now, it seems.
When opened for filter import to a LibreOffice module, you can not save it back over itself. Use a different file name--here you would end up with two .txt files, and then delete the original.
Give that a go and if that is your issue resolve this as INVALID.

Not sure what you mean with "filer import". There is no such thing as "Import" in any of the Calc menus. I opened the txt file as I would open any other file, regardless of the extension: just clicking in the "Open" button.
This workaround is rather impractical, is thede no way for calc to simply save the file?
