The feature only works sometimes. Does not work most of the time. Unstable.
Comment 2 Dieter 2020-03-06 11:59:02 UTC
Vincent, a new major release of LibreOffice is available since this bug was reported. Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.
