Description Richard 2012-05-14 12:19:21 UTC
Recent Documents or history of documents accessed does not update. 
Expect to see new additions, but the list never changes.
Comment 1 Dwight Scott Miller 2012-05-14 14:18:07 UTC
Recent documents list is empty and remains empty, no matter what documents are used or created.

Have you tried to reset the profile.

I can also confirm this bug and resetting the user profile fixes the problem.

A suggestion for a possible fix to the bug from another user: "...adding a mechanism (i.e. a one click button to Repair profile) to fix this kind of problems would be a good addition to the usability and friendliness of the Suite.

I can tell you that I have had this question asked by many students and teaching staff (I am a school teacher). Such a button, most probably found in the "preferences" somewhere, would be a great addition.
