I just upgraded from LO 5.2.0 to 126.96.36.199 and Writer's AutoCorrect Word Completion list was deleted :(
I had set the AutoCorrect to collect words and now they are all gone.
I recommend preserving the word list during all upgrades, esp. if the user has set it to collect words.
Which operating system are you using?
Set to NEEDINFO.
Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the information.
The list is stored in the user profile folder, so it should not be deleted.
You did not use a portable version, but the full install?
Yes, full install.
LibO 188.8.131.52 has been released yesterday.
please try upgrading from LibO 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11 and tell if issue persists.
remember to backup first the user profile ( https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile ) so you won't loose data if bug is still present.
give us feedback about what happens and revert status to UNCONFIRMED if issue is still there or RESOLVED WORKSFORME if bug is gone.
status NEEDINFO until then.
about your Win10, is that a 64 bit version?
any news my fried?
in the meantime 5.2.5 and 5.3.0 have been released.
I can confirm the problem did not happen with the upgrade from
5.2.3 -> 18.104.22.168
The word completion list stayed in place.
I will test again with the upgrade to 5.3
nice to hear that.
let's label it as RESOLVED WORKSFORME
feel free to reopen it if the bugs appears again in next upgrades.
Sorry, spoke too soon (before a reboot).
I upgraded to 22.214.171.124 and the list was there, but when I restarted the machine it was lost.
Anyone else able to test it?
Normally they are stored in the user profile: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#Windows
Under "autocorr" folder. Just tested by adding a new autocorrection exception and it popped a acor_fi-FI.dat file there.
The profile should not be deleted upon upgrade, so that is your root problem.
Any idea what is causing it? You are not manually deleting it, right? Or with some kind of "clean unused files" tool?

Right (not deleting anything)
> Or with some kind of "clean unused files" tool?
I hope not.
This where my file is:
Not sure what LibreOffice 4 is the directory. I did have LO 4.x installed a while back, but obviously upgraded to version 5.
is date stamped 27/02/2017 8:26PM which is the time of the 5.3 upgrade.
Maybe LO 5.x is looking for a "5" directory and if not there overwrites the file?

When the version number was bumped to 5, it was decided to not change the profile number to avoid these types of data loss situations. As it is stamped to the time of the upgrade, maybe it is proof the update messed with it somehow.
I couldn't find any similar report in our Bugzilla.
