Description Bert Mariën 2017-05-22 17:15:02 UTC
Ever since version 5.x.x came out, I want to tell you that the configuration files for LibreOffice are still in a folder frm version 4.x.x.

E.g. for windows in C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\4
Same in Linux, but than in the "Opt" folder.

I've been wanting to tell you that for months, but I tought: surely someone of the programmers would notice that.

Actual Results:  
None. LibreOffice just keeps working fine.

Expected Results:
Make it a directory (folder) that is called "5"

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

That is not a bug, but intended behavior. Read https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#Default_locations and bug 93057.
