Description M.Merlino 2020-07-16 05:49:00 UTC
It has already been reported for other versions, but this still persist in 7.0 RC1: when using the "Save As" command, the program uses the "Spinning wheel of Death" for a while, then goes back to the document, without performing the action or even bringing up the window to enter the file name for "Save As".

Actual Results:
Open any odt file, choose "Save As".

Expected Results:
Program does not perform the requested action.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Bring up the choice for the new file name.

.. so no need to report again, this is a duplicate then. 

Is this https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=132025 or else?

Hi there,

the bug you refer to, from what I understand, is related (mainly) to a language pack placed on an earlier version, I am submitting this about a fresh install of RC 7.0.
I thought it was useful to report that the bug still persists.

MacOS version would be helpful. 

Does this make a difference

Seems more like a DUP of bug 128233 to me.

Lets add this to bug 128233. I'm seeing no reason to let this float here
