Description Oliver Brinzing 2017-05-07 08:53:44 UTC
Created attachment 133114 [details]
finalize demo

steps to reproduce:
- install attached "finalize_demo.oxt"
- check items in Tools/Options...

the items finalized in calc.xcu/writer.xcu are still editable.
a user can change the value and work with the new configuration
until next start.

Is it related to 

#46279 ?

Comment 2 Oliver Brinzing 2017-05-07 14:46:00 UTC
no, #46279 deals with restart after installing an extension
Comment 3 Buovjaga 2017-05-07 17:02:09 UTC
LibO crashes for me after I hover for a while in the start center.

..and the UI is crazy and flickering. Not sure what is the point of this extension.
Comment 5 Oliver Brinzing 2017-05-07 17:43:22 UTC
the extension contains 3 configuration files (calc.xcu,writer.xcu,general.xcu),
changing some settings in Tools/Options... to demonstrate, that 
finalized values are not always disabled in UI.

you can find the files in:

a demo setting "VCL/ForceOpenGL" in general.xcu forces OpenGL to be enabled.
this can be the root cause for flickering/crashing.
setting the value to "false" should fix the problem.

Ok, confirmed with Writer options Print - Text placeholder and Print automatically inserted blank pages.

This is a somewhat complex report, so let's see what's in the package and what does still apply in a current LO master:

-I can't find this on the UI (anymore?). I know if this is set to true (as a setting, not the finalized attribute) it will disable the Macro Security button on the Security page.
How is this setting being finalized causing a problem?

Writer and Calc seem to be a bit worse, but the general part is now quite foolproof.

Dear Oliver Brinzing,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
