Description Olivia 2011-01-30 14:21:06 UTC
I've been using Writer since the 3.3.0 LibreOffice release, and I like to set the icons size to "small" and the full screen shortcut to F11. 

But then when I close the program and re-open it again some other time, these preferences are reset to the default setting, which is large icons and ctrl-shift-j for full screen.

That doesn't happen every time I close and re-open LibreOffice, just enough to get annoying, but so far I have been unable to determine what causes it.

I'm using Ubuntu 10.10.

To illustrate things: 

This is how I want to look (and what I make it look every time I start it):

This is how it looks every time I re-start LibreOffice:

It's getting very annoying. Any help?

I'm having the same problem (on Linux Mint 10).  This happens about every 5th or 6th time I run LibreOffice.  Not all settings are lost, e.g., I made additional toolbar buttons visible in calc and they're still there -- just bigger. :)  But everything I changed under "Tools -> Options" reverts to default values.  Would it make sense to diff the contents of ~/.libreoffice/ over time?

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Problem with saving option indeed was in LibO 3.3 but now is fixed.
I change status to WorksForMe.
Please, change status to Reopened if problem still exists.
