Description sergio.callegari 2018-07-06 00:17:25 UTC
If you open an ods file and then try to save it as xls, when you switch the file type, the file name field gets cleared. Insted it should keep the same base file name with the new extension as a preset.

no filename, no path
Comment 2 Dr. Bernhard Friedrichs 2018-07-13 09:24:48 UTC
Same applies to pdf export.

Libreoffice does not show a filename, does forget the path.
Also the default folder "documents" is not set, starts in $HOME

Which Linux distribution / desktop environment are you using?
Comment 4 sergio.callegari 2018-07-19 07:45:19 UTC
Kubuntu Linux 18.04. Unable to reproduce anymore, something in my environment must have changed.
Comment 5 sergio.callegari 2018-07-22 16:23:02 UTC
Reproducing again. Not clear what triggers the issue.
Comment 6 Buovjaga 2018-07-22 18:24:11 UTC
NEW per Bernhard's comments.

Previously I've observed (with kde4 backend) that when changing filetype to some OOXML, it suddenly changes the file name to some random file from the same directory.

Would be interesting to keep an eye on this when kde5 backend gets into a usable state.
Comment 7 Buovjaga 2019-01-01 19:29:24 UTC
This is no longer a problem with the new kde5 backend.
