Description Nik Finney 2020-08-05 21:48:12 UTC
Just Upgraded from LO 6.4.5 to 7.0.0.  NOW, when Exporting an RTF to a PDF, seems to start the process, but NEVER asks where to put the NEW Doc.  Does NOT put it where I have previously saved my PDF's.  Search function in Apple Catalina comes up with the OLD PDF.  Mystified.  Going to re-install the 6.4.5 version.

Using Hyperlinked RTF to create Hyperlinked PDF documents ( Useable in Apple Books)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open an RTF document

Actual Results:
Process seems to be Working. But NO request as to where to save the NEW Doc.

Expected Results:

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Ask where to save the NEW File

DUH!!! The NEXT question should have been asked First.  ALSO, ALL of the subsequent Questions should have been offered before I GOT THIS FAR!!!!! I'm NOT going back NOW to go through this process AGAIN.

CAN'T even keep a Copy of this PROTRACTED Bug Report.....

1. Open rtf with LO
2a. File > Export > PDF shows macOS file save dialog including location selection
2b. File > Export as... > Export as PDF > Export: same
