Description Ulrich Dillge 2018-11-27 13:46:45 UTC
LibreOffice and Windows 10 Home V.1803 OS build: 17134.407
I have several .xlsx files that I'm using (editing) on both my laptop and my Android phone going through my Dropbox. Every time I open a file on my laptop it asks me if I want to keep using the same App and i click the check mark. It doesn't seem to remember that the check mark was clicked because the next time it will ask me again. This also happens when the file is stored in a local folder on the laptop.
The reason I'm using .xlsx files is because I have yet to find an Android App that allows me to edit .ods files. Would much prefer to do it that way; but I'm stuck using Excel on my Android phone.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a .xlsx file and save it in  'Documents'
2. Close LibreOffice Calc
3. open Filemanager and double click the newly created file
4. Select LibreOffice Calc as the default App and click the check mark
5. Repeat steps 3 & 4

Actual Results:
It will ask for the default App again

Expected Results:
Should remember that a default App was selected

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
