4.X LO versions are EOL, idem for 5.0.X, 5.1.X and 5.2.X
Could you give a try to a recent LO version? (last stable one is 5.3.5)
Comment 4 Julien Nabet 2017-08-11 07:55:46 UTC
Forget my previous comment, I could reproduce this on Win7 with LO 5.3.4
Comment 5 Paul 2017-08-11 10:59:55 UTC
Yes, I tested on various 4 and 5 versions up to the current still (5.3.5) and fresh (5.4.0) versions and they too have the problem.
