Word 2007-365


Today, I downloaded the new update of LibreOffice ( And I noticed that there is a bug whose consequences are difficult to predict. That's what it is: When I want to save a document in Word 2007-2019 format, your software offers me only the format I have never heard of: Word 2007-365. I have already reinstalled the software but it has not given anything, the format that is proposed instead of Word 2007-2019 is Word 2007-365.

Thank you for reporting the bug. To be certain the reported issue is not
related to corruption in the user profile, could you please reset your
Libreoffice profile ( https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile ) and

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the issue is still present

On Win10 with LO 6.3.3 + brand new LO profile + French UI, I could reproduce this.

By putting 365, would it a way to indicate the last Office version?

Xisco: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Office
Since Office 2013, Microsoft has promoted Office 365 as the primary means of obtaining Microsoft Office: it allows use of the software and other services on a subscription business model, and users receive free feature updates to the software for the lifetime of the subscription, including new features and cloud computing integration that are not necessarily included in the "on-premises" releases of Office sold under conventional license terms. In 2017, revenue from Office 365 overtook conventional license sales.

The current on-premises, desktop version of Office is Office 2019, released on September 24, 2018

Office 365 is different from the rest since it's based on subscription principle.
Now, as I indicated in my previous post, putting "-365" may be a way to indicate "last version".
However for those who don't use Office 365 but "conventional" releases (Office 2016, 2019), it may be not appropriate for them.
Personally, I don't have strong opinion here but perhaps it should be discussed on UX forum?

Sure, adding UX team

See bug 108894 and prior UX discussions, reached agreement for intentional use of openended '365' notation, rather than 2019 as committed by Adolfo [1].


Otherwise, not a major issue if we restore a 2019 notation--just that we'll be here again in a year or so when the next MS flavor is tagged.

Sorry I didn't know about the background of this. No pb for me of course, I just wanted to be sure that everybody's ok in UX team and make this choice on purpose knowing well the distinction between Office 365 and the other "conventional" versions.

Let's close it.
