I notices you make a number of bug reports with headless, where it's not an issue. 
So first here and in all bugs please:ΕΎ
- test if headless is a problem or it's general LO 
- did you search for existing bugs before report?
Comment 4 Rhys Young 2020-05-20 12:42:28 UTC
Sorry they should be all general LO. I had been clearing out a backlog of defects from clients and was under the impression headless was a needed command. Sorry about that.

Yes, I did search for existing defects however with the giant influx of bugs in our backlog, while triaging the defects , some may have been missed as I went through a lot of defects. Again, sorry for an inconvenience that may have caused.

I'n not clear how when this fix was in https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/6.3.5/RC1.

This report was wrong on many issues: not headless, not PDF convert but fileopen, already fixed. It's very wrong and annoying to start from "I make headless convert" which is different from objective issue. 

Rhys, you are an advanced user or IT pro. 
Please always search and test with LO master before submitting, do it now for other bugs.
