This is the meta issue to track the most annoying bugs in LibreOffice 3.7.x releases. It helps developers to concentrate on bugs that are most important for users. Also it helps users to be aware of potential problems.
If anyone wants to raise a bug as “most annoying” for the release, please add the ID of that bug to the field “Depends on”, and don’t forget to leave a comment here that explains in a few words why that bug should be privileged.
For details, criteria and further instructions, please see
A first nomination: “Bug 54023 - CRASH on launch when loading local libiconv.2.dylib ("liblangtag.0.dylib requires version 8.0.0 or later, but libiconv.2.dylib provides version 7.0")”.
This bug makes it impossible to test the daily builds on MacOS X.
I added all who were in CC for "Bug 44446 - LibreOffice 3.6 most annoying bugs" to CC here, please feel free to remove yourself if you do not want to get info concerning latest 3.7 MAB.
Add "Bug 53872 - CRASH - opening database report" - Regression
Add "Bug 54225 - MAILMERGEe-mail as PDF sends damaged documents", what makes Mailmerge assistant unusable for e-mail as PDF
Removed bug 53872 ("CRASH - opening database report") again, because it is now already listed as an LibO 3.5 most annyoing bug.
Nominating bug 36815 : PRINTING comments in Writer inline or WYSIWYG
It's not bug, it's an enhancement, but since I saw you are working on Writer comments in 3.7, this would be nice bug to solve.
Lo can't print comments WYSIWYG or inline, it adds them to page end or document end which makes it less usable since you have to search text for line on which comment is reffering (you have to count lines, there is no marker).
I was in need of this feature today since I printed revision of contract on which I had a lot of comments.
LO has great commenting system (same as Word) but horrible comment printing which should get this much needed upgrade.
drop bug#36815 - move it to 3.5 MABs where it belongs; the lowest version with the bug should be used.
Added bug 54858 - “CRASH when accessing "General" tab of file "Properties" dialog ("File > Properties...") for any saved document”
Adding https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=54744 Hybrid PDF export are corrupted
adding Bug 55290 - LOdev 3.7 won't install. Error 1935.
this affects 24 Sep build. previous 3 buils did install.
Adding bug 55350 - “Letter spacing and ‘expand single word’ do not work anymore”.
Not the most terrible bug in the world, but a blameful regression, which would make MS and AOO folks laugh at us and our users angry with us, introduced between 2012-09-20 and 2012-09-24.
Adding bug 55524 - “UI: Hang when accessing ‘Insert > Manual Break...’”.
Endless hang, at least on Mac OS X. Introduced between 27th and 30th September.
Add "Bug 55685 - CRASH when create or modify Character Style or Paragraph Style"
Add "Bug 55567 - UI: Find Bar incomplete, empty, input pane is missing". Ease workaround using "Find & Replace", but no working 'Find' is a serious limitation. Confirmation for Mac / Linux still missing.
(In reply to comment #14)
> Add "Bug 55567 - UI: Find Bar incomplete, empty, input pane is missing".
> Ease workaround using "Find & Replace", but no working 'Find' is a serious
> limitation. Confirmation for Mac / Linux still missing.
Really added it. Now also confirmed for Linux and Mac OS.
I add "Bug 55560 - EDITING: CRASH when Format Cells (menu and Context menu)"; unthinkable to release without possibility to format cells
Added bug 55807 - “CRASH when accessing ‘Tools > Outline Numbering...’”.
Makes complete outline numbering feature inaccessible. Regression introduced between 2012-09-27 and 2012-10-04.
For the record:
Markus Mohrhard has added bug 56291 - “saving with password removes all content”. (Thank you, Markus, for emphasizing this important issue!)
Adding 2 master regressions. Both have been git bisected and first bad commit identified.
1. Bug #55563 - FILEOPEN PPTX image background rendered incorrectly. Currently reproducible in Windows, but not Linux. (No Mac to test)
2. Bug #53525 - FILEOPEN existing document: 2 columns Table of contents exceeds page width. Affect both Windows and Linux.
Add "Bug 56460 - CRASH when closing specific .odg files", many Drawings affected!
are we going to rename this meta-issue as LibO 4.0 MAB?
We have no builds with that Version, no 4.0 Version in Bugzilla, so currently please leave this one as 3.7 MAB tracker.
Please adapt all relevant tools to 4.0 (renaming or creating new ones) simultaneously after that has been reasoned and some notes have been left in the Wiki.
Although the latest 4.0 code is simply further development of the Master, it might be appropriate to create a new 4.0 Master Version for Bugzilla and leave 188.8.131.52.alpha0+, because for most users it will be worrying to have lots of bugs for Version 4.0 (due to vrsion picker) without any 4.0 Version mentioned in the comments.
I add "Bug 57026 - FILEOPEN particular .docx shows all text frames filling complete page size and more", what makes lots of .docx unusable
I add "Bug 57046 - No WINDOWS daily Master builds available for QA"
Added bug 57051 - “LOdev 184.108.40.206.alpha0 daily build does not start at all: system liblangtag.1.dylib not found”.
This makes the current master builds for Mac OS X completely worthless: I can not do any QA work with master builds as long as this bug exists.
I add "Bug 57059 - CRASH when scroll down on (Writer) HELP contents - Common Help Topics - General Information - General Glossary"
* bug 57090 - “UI: Visual glitches with the new Widget Layout:
Buttons cut off in ‘Insert Table’ dialog”
* bug 57092 - “UI: Visual glitches with the new Widget Layout:
cursor does not blink in ‘Name’ field of ‘Insert Table’ dialog”
Both bugs seem really minor, but I add them following a suggestion by Caolán McNamara. Similar visual glitches appear in many other dialog windows, and there is a chance that fixing these two bugs will improve the look of the other dialogs, too. This is why these two bugs are quite important, and are added here.
**** Renamed to “LibreOffice 3.7/4.0 most annoying bugs” *****
Because LibreOffice 3.7 has been renamed to LibreOffice 4.0 now, we have to adapt this meta bug report accordingly. But it would be a bit irritating if we would simply rename it to “LibreOffice 4.0 most annoying bugs”, because it has started for version 3.7, and all comments talk about “3.7”. On the other hand it would be (IMHO) overkill to create a new, separate “LibreOffice 4.0 most annoying bugs” report; this approach would (falsely!) suggest that 3.7 and 4.0 were different versions and branches.
Therefore the best solution (there is no perfect one!) seems to follow Rainer’s suggestion at
to rename the present meta bug to “LibreOffice 3.7/4.0 most annoying bugs”.
One could argue that this name is a bit irritating in itself, but this time
the irritation has the advantage to remind us (if we ever manage to forget it ;-)
of the version history, i.e. of 4.0 being the continuation of 3.7 ...
I hope that everybody can live with this solution :-)
Added bug 57198 - “Mac OSX Daily installation package to small and invalid”.
Tinderbox 27 seems to produce invalid daily builds.
Adding some confirmed regressions:
* Bug 55044 - VIEWING of particular DRAW OLE object incomplete, pixel picture in it is missing
* Bug 56808 - OLE Pictures are not displayed
* Bug 56882 - Font list is unsorted in 'insert special character' dialog
* Bug 57215 - Wrong text rotation in SVG Export (rotated text appears as non-rotated)
* Bug 56709 - UI: Cell formatting dialog shows characters as squares for some languages
I add "Bug 57259 - UI: Master pages styles change view to "Default" instead of being applied", because a very basic function is broken what makes impress more or less unusable for creation of new presentations.
I added Bug 34555. I'm afraid it's also a bit of an enhancement, but a very much needed one.
Cropping in LibreOffice Writer is pretty much impossible the way it's currently implemented, and someone actually showed this issue to me as the reason they don't use LibreOffice.
Removed bug#34555 - please add MAB's to the open tracker of the lowest version they are found in: in this case 3.5 (at bug#37361). This helps us have a good view of bugs specific to each version
I add "Bug 57444 - Wizards for Fax and Letter do not work", I think we can not ship 4.0 with such a visible bug.
I hesitated quite a while to add "Bug 57236 - CRASH when FILESAVE .doc as .html", but its a crash and not a too exotic action causing the crash.
I add "Bug 57500 - EDITING: CRASH when manage conditional formatting - double click range"
Add bug 57515 : crash when creating a Table of Contents.
Created attachment 70968 [details]
read error on pictures
Comment on attachment 70968 [details]
read error on pictures
not a .txt, not a patch, seems to be here accidently, I will open a nw Bug for this
Add "Bug 57895 - UI: Conditional Formatting for cells shown incorrectly and and incompletely in CF dialog", we can't ship 4.0 without ability to edit CF
Add bug 56058 "FILEOPEN: LibreOffice cannot open .docx file in strict variant"
This should be solved soon, because with release of Word 2013 such files will be produced from those who care of standards.
I add "Bug 57946 - EDITING CRASH in menu 'Format - Conditional Formatting - Contition - Condition'", looks like a blocker
I add "Bug 57906 - BUGZILLAASSISTANT: Submit fails with error message "It looks like you didn't come from the right page ..."". Although it's not directly related to this LibO version, it would be a bad setback for pre release testing of 4.0 to have no BSA
I add Bug 58060 - autocorrect entries in the [All] list are saved as English(USA).
regression from the 3.6.x branch... it can really mess up autocorrect language lists.
I add "Bug 58069 - FILESAVE in different path structure destroys relative hyperlinks": blocker!
I add "Bug 58142 - EDITING: CRASH when copy paste multiple pictures from file explorer"
I nominate bug 51300 : comments in XLS files are shown in white on yellow, so unreadable.
added bug#58267 - evil shape lifecycle issue causing import crashers for RTF, DOCX etc.
I add bug 58328 - “FILESAVE: Creating a new document version no longer working”.
An important regression, makes the versions feature completely useless.
Reported and confirmed on Mac OS X, please test on other platforms ...
I nominate bug 58284 ( UI: Number dropdown list in Tools > Outline Numbering is empty) as this regression make Outline numbering impossible.
I add "Bug 58129 - FILESAVE as ppt and pps (MSO97): rejected by MSO with warning message". Completely broken .ppt export more or less a blocker?
I add "Bug 58376 - EDITING: PAGE FORMAT page layaut -> Only right -> CRASH" because of the regression with LibreOffice 3.6.
I nominate "Bug 58399 - CRASH when FILEOPEN particular .docx (MSO2007)" because of the regression with version 220.127.116.11.
Adding bug 55032 - CONDITIONAL FORMATTING after copy/paste sheet only visible in 'CF-Manage', not in 'CF-CF', and without effect
Conditional formatting is a critical feature of a spreadsheet and it is not possible to copy sheets between files without losing the conditional formatting.
The bug is partially fixed as copying within a file works in 4.0 beta 1, but conditional formatting does not appear in CF-Manage at all when copying between files.
This makes it impossible for me to upgrade from the 3.5 branch.
bug#56048 has been there forever and a day - it belongs better vs. 3.6 I think.
(In reply to comment #55)
> bug#56048 has been there forever and a day - it belongs better vs. 3.6 I
Definitely right -- moved bug 56048 to 3.6 MAB list.
I add "Bug 58686 - CRASH when edit CONDITIONAL FORMATTING"
I add "Bug 58766 - : tools -> options -> advanced -> enable macro recording" because of the 'setting loss'. Can't find this feature in 18.104.22.168, so I think this is a 'new feature' of 4.0.
adding Bug 58779 - print dialog not shown. prints file directly
recent regression with effect on a very basic and frequently used function.
(In reply to comment #59)
> adding Bug 58779 - print dialog not shown. prints file directly
> recent regression with effect on a very basic and frequently used function.
Works as intended. Not a bug.
If you select "impress remote" menu item by mistake and don't have android device to connect, the dialog window never close and you have to kill Impress loosing your last editing.
I add "Bug 58819 - FILESAVE as .docx: loss of page background picture (watermark)" because of data loss.
I nominate "Bug 58815 - [CRASH] new document, close without saving crashes Impress" because of the basic function to 'close without saving'... following I need to add this bug in mab4.0 and set priority to 'Highest' and 'Critical'. https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/images/0/06/Prioritizing_Bugs_Flowchart.jpg
Add "Bug 58863 - FILEOPEN .xlsx: "IF" condition not calculated": very basic function, additional functions might be affected.
I add "Bug 58909 - Extensions Update fails with error "Cannot create folder"": it's a serious problem that LibO lost ability for Extensions update.
Would like to suggest adding https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=58943
This regression results in significant visual differences where a user has depended on derived formats for calculated cells. The intention in 22.214.171.124B2 is obviously to follow what happened in 3.6.n.n as the expected derived formats do appear when sheet layout is changed - see issue report for details

Really added ;-)
I nominate bug 58988 "Copy and paste chart fails if the source sheet does not have the default name" as it make impossible to cleanly move a chart if the sheet has been renamed.
Nominating bug 59022: cannot open .odt files on CIFS (Windows share) filesystem.
Add bug 58815 - create new Impress/Draw document, add slide/page, close without saving crashes Impress, Draw.
Add bug 58275 - Install fails if .NET Framework 4.0 (Client) is not present
I nominate bug 58531: links in spreadsheets broken by default (they don't update even if the user clicks yes to update them)
Adding Bug 58171 - VIEWING: Pages do not have a drop shadow. UI regression, no document shadow and bad visual glitch.
I nominate "Bug 59183 - EDITING: Copy 4 or more slides then crash" because of the regression with 3.6 branch;
I nominate bug 58998 which is a regression: Inserting a section, inserts 2 sections with the same name.
Nominating bug 58562 because it makes it close to impossible to paste charts from Calc to Writer, with the only obvious workaround being to use older LibO version.
Oops, wrong field
Nominating Bug 53924
It is on MAB 3.6 already. Still valid for LO 4.0RC1.
Add "Bug 57444 - Wizards for Fax and Letter do not launch", very visible and might affect many users!
I nominate bug 58730 - Paragraph styles line spacing does not stick. This bug is a very annoying regression which is preventing me from being able to upgrade from version 3.4.6. It is also very simple to duplicate.
59516 = the MySQL native connector do not longer install with Windows 7&8,
who uses LO as frontend to Mysql is out of buisiness
I nominate "Bug 58978 - [FILEOPEN][FILESAVE]: General Error while opening/closing .odt files" because of an error message every time you open/save an ODT file (Mac osx only)
I add "Bug 59613 - RTL VIEWING: Increasing size of dialogs to right or bottom causes artifacts": very fixible and makes new "resizable dialogs" feature more or less unusable for RTL UI
Add bug 59676 - Copy range cells and paste special as RTF in Writer does not work
I add "Bug 51232 - EDITING: CRASH when paste in outline view after SLIDESHOW". It seems that not many users are affected, but a crash is crash!
adding bug #59325 it seems quite a serious regression
I'm nominating bug 59714. Footnotes with headers enabled in a large document make it unusable and will cause it to crash. This bug is keeping me from being able to upgrade from version 3.4.6 and is very likely related to bug 58029 which was recently fixed.
Added bug 57061.
User profile is not imported to version 4.0.0. Users expect this AND nearly all users are effected. Hence I expect a lot of user complaints and a bad press, if this bug is not corrected.
add sdremote deadlock: bug#59881 - it's pretty annoying to kill soffice remotely[sic] while presenting.
I nominate "Bug 59797 - LibreLogo: view -> toolbars: LibreLogo has name "Add-on 1"" because you can't find LibreLogo with it's proper name in the toolbar list. (it's now called "Add-on 1"). Because this is a big feature (already wide spread on blogs and fora) ... I nominate it to mab4.0
Nominating bug 58826 because it prohibits the use of Calc in version 188.8.131.52 for a large number of users
Add 60012: Python stuff does not work in the release builds on MAC
Add bug 59916: calculation errors with localized Calc on some Linuxes. It afftects only some distros but it seems that it affects quite some people :-(
I add "Bug 59270 - TEMPLATE related: Page margin changes unexpectedly on page two": currently roots still unclear, but impossibility to create sane new Writer documents might affect may users.
I have added bug 59767. It is very important from translators point of view.
Please fix it before release LO 4.0
Add Bug 60132 - FILEOPEN: Error reading file after inserting comment
The document can not be opened...
Promote bug 60144
Crash in Impress when inserting hyperlink
Add "Bug 59966 - Fails to update 184.108.40.206.beta2 By 220.127.116.11. Master"! Of course it is probably related to my PC, if not it would be very annoying. Anything I can do to help debugging before I uninstall 18.104.22.168 to get 22.214.171.124 on my PC?
Adding bug 60065 (BASIC: Can't set an object to NamedValue structure) because it's a regression and there is no workaround
many macros are broken
Add 59259: Impress print freezes with some master pages. Too slow SVG conversion or too big resolution?
Add 60250: Broken mirrored page layout on the the 2nd page. IMHO, it might affect quite some users.
I add "Bug 60280 - PRINTING: TABLE borders, borders around paragraphs and footer, some graphic elements missing". Makes Writer more or less unusable
I add "Bug 60306 - EDITING: CONDITIONAL FORMATTING destroyed after copy-paste cell". For me that's a no go
I add "Bug 60311 - EDITING: Copy cells with CONDITIONAL FORMATTING formula with wrong references after paste" because of dataloss
Adding bug 60495 Formatting: Appears to have no effect on numbers. After loading a sheet one cannot change the formating of calculated cells. Workaround available but extremely confusing.
I removed Bug 60495 because it's a DUP.
I add "Bug 60215 - FILEOPEN: FORMATTING of value-related color, localized decimal separator and Currency VIEWING need Complete Recalculation": Simple workaround, but very visible
I would like to add bug 35785 (LibreOffice's support of the "recent documents" feature of the Windows 7 Start menu broken) because it is a regression introduced by 3.6. It broke a most covenient way to work with the Windows 7 start menu.
nominating bug 56031 as a regression in core handling of XAccessible caret and cursor events affecting accessibility
I nominate bug 59928 as it is a regression which make fields (like cross-reference) useless.
Added bug 34800. This bug with importance major exists already in Version 3.3.1. It's just time to solve this problem.
I add "Bug 59629 - Custom animation: only the first line is animated" to this list because of the regression, many affected people and very important (basic) function of a presentation.
Saving a new document as docx results in corrupted file, whereas saving as docx from existing document does not.
I add "Bug 61651 - MinGW: Tinderbox @7 does not deliver 4.1 Master builds" together with "Bug 61652 - Tinderbox @6 does not deliver 4.1 Master builds": Master regression survey completely broken for WIN
I add "Bug 60886 - Show Variable field shows no content in Page Header/Footer, Frames, Sections": Makes LibO unusable for nearby any professional user, suspect for dataloss
Adding Bug 60589 - [Template manager]: Can not copy styles between different files and templates
Bug 60593 - [Template manager] Creating new template directory is unnecessarily hard
has various duplicates/closely related issues
Add Bug 61468 - [Template manager] [accessibility] UI broken for key board navigation
Bug 51556 - FORMATTING [accessibility] Tab/keyboard behaviour in dialog Conditional formatting strange
(In reply to comment #118)
> Add Bug 61468 - [Template manager] [accessibility] UI broken for key board
replacing 61468 with bug 61390 regards accessibility of Template Manager
I add "Bug 62111 - CRASH when FILESAVE particular .ods with links to other documents .xlsx"
As per suggestion in the dev list - adding bug 60712: On inserting New Row/column does not inherit the style of cells in table
Added Bug 58144. I know people are not supposed to uninstall LibreOffice :) but it looks pretty bad that the uninstall dialog is filled with squares. This is a regression from version 3.6
Nominating bug 48043 - LC_CTYPE instead of LC_NUMERIC used to determine decimal separator and native numbering
Nominating bug 53030 - Calc deletes current sheet, not right-clicked on sheet when trying to delete opposite directionality sheets
Removing 48043 - this is a massively long standing bug that is not specific to 4.0 - it's unclear to me that it's a MAB as well - please nominate with a comment rather than adding to the deps list :-) Extending the MAB list is not a panacea, at some length people are no longer interested in fixing bugs in a huge bug list that can never be got under control ;-) On the other hand 53030 seems a much more suitable candidate - though is that a 4.0 specific issue ? if not it needs to go in the 3.6 MAB list.

Its MABness (rather then just ABness) can be discussed; this kind of
issues is a pet peeve of mine, but I kinda see your point. However, it
*was* added with a comment:

Michale Meeks added bug 60769, -- FILEOPEN, FILESAVE, "Could not save document, error in writing sub document context.xml" then corrupt file. But that looks to be same issue as bug 60588 and bug 61033--both listed as unconfirmed but with additional detail. Comment 3 in 60588 suggests this may have been improved with 126.96.36.199.
Added Bug 62719 - PRINTING: Do not print borderless tables if past from Calc because it's rather common activity.
I add "Bug 62873 - CONDITIONAL FORMATTING: formulas move TWICE the number of rows inserted or deleted", what destroys users' documents
I add "Bug 61913 - particular OLE objects suppress PRINTING of .wmf",
"Bug 62667 - CALC OLE object PRINTING with missing cell borders"
These unpredictable printing results make Writer 4.0 unusable for any professional working.
I nominate bug 49120, it is a dataloss bug in XLSX export filter.
Added bug 63311 - this bug prevents users from removing text from draw and then resave a document. Text reappears upon opening document again (despite a save looking like it happened)
I have addited bug 60268 because it is here since 188.8.131.52 and a lot a pleople have reported it as a marked dup, also it doesn't look good.
Nominating Bug 63498: Personas doesn't work anymore. A new functionality completely unusable.
Bug 63652 - The Amazing Moving Tab Stops
This is an MAB because the user cannot open a file he saved without having to change the formatting.

Sorry, I remove it for now, because it is still UNCONFIRMED.
adding bug 62643
Currently, using Word completion is more an annoyance then an advantage
I add "Bug 42939 - SVG Export ignores line width", what makes SVG export totally unusable.
adding 63142, even the most trivial presentations use bulleted lists and without being able to promote/demote items this is breaking basic functionality
add Bug 63407 - Linked contents from external source (web page or local file) not updated (edit)
various duplicates (and issues looking as such)
I nominate bug #59608.
Although this bug is fixed in Master it should be cherry picked to 4.0.3 ASAP since Marketing made a big deal about this new feature and now it is broken (not LO's fault but still looks bad that it doesn't work at all)

illustration of loss of Master slide format/layout when saving as pptx
If editing/saving as pptx, Master slide format and layout is lost. Text is still there but in text boxes outside the Master format, thus requiring to be recopied/repasted into the Master layout - big timewaster. Does not occur if edit/save and re-open in .odp, but apparently impossible to save as pptx without loss of Master slide formatting.
Also impossible to edit Master font size if saving as pptx - that's a different bug of course! haven't reported it yet.

This bug does NOT occur if file is saved as .ppt
Thus bug seems related to pptx format only
Lorraine T: thanks for nominating a bug - please don't discuss details of that specific bug inside this tracker bug, and please don't attach any test files here either, otherwise this tracker issue will become a mess. You need to file those details in a separate issue, and attach them there - also, it is best to nominate an issue with a single comment and link to the bug, and let another QA person add it to the DependsOn list. Anyhow - thanks for your work !
added bug 62815 and marked it as a blocker bug. It appears like a certain group of our users cannot use presentation at all in LibreOffice 4. Everyone is getting the same error message
I'm adding 60651 as we are still having EMFPlus issues with Visio images. Many of the issues are being looked into/fixed by bug 59045 and bug 60638, but still some issues.
I am adding bug 36799, it is extremely problematic for OSX users (and apparently some Linux users), and seems to be linked to page size defaults, which in turn causes printing to screw up. Unfortunately, it has been around since LO 3.3.x, and was reset in the initial bugzilla clean-up fiasco. Since then, it has languished in purgatory.
Added Bug 62806 - serious scaling issue exporting WMFs to PDF.
There are many bug reports for images in .docx. Here is Bug 52226 but it shouldn't be here, rather on MAB 3.6, so I move it there.
Nominating bug 63756 as such regressions are not acceptable in professional software.
Bug 46060 - Writer corrupts DOCX file containing TOC, recovery not possible with Office 2010 - shouldn't be here, rather on MAB 3.6, so I move it there.
adding Bug 64989 FILE SAVE: A newline is added after pictures (anchored as character) when saved as doc file
comment#9 even suggests that it affects also some fields.
Anyway, a nasty one, that didn't (for me and OP) occur in 4.0.2
I nominate bug 62938. Rows to repeat are written correctly, but they are wrong set, when open the document. You can see from the lots of duplicates, that many users are affected by this bug.
Hate to submit this with all the more major bugs. The Help on Writer Default Templates needs to be updated to 4.0.3. The Help text does not relate to what is displayed in the Menu.
BTW, love the ability to "export" to a PDF. Don't lose it!
Thanks for all the great work you do!!!
Nominated bug 65836 - relatively simple image(s) in a docx format, re-saving it in LibreOffice corrupts the image(s) - Microsoft Office spits out a corruption error and the resulting recovered file looks terrible
adding bug #66148 - IDE object catalog latency on big libraries
Waiting a couple of seconds trying to switch tabs in the Basic IDE is too much
Bug 39936 - it has always been unnecessarily cumbersome to move rows around. Excel has a context menu option called "Insert cut cells", which I miss dearly in LibreCalc.
Adding Bug 60883 - Macros: macros allways disabled in files created from templates when working via Templatemanager: File > New > Template
Adding bug 37606 - Edit > Select All doesn't work on a document beginning with a table.
It's more than 2 years old. Is it that hard to fix?
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=67463 seems to be a candidate to me: its a regression of LibreOffice 4.0.4 vs. previous 4.0.x versions. Not yet marking it as blocking this one as it needs confirmation still.
Really added Bug 37606 to the list.
I would like to nominate: "Bug 34449 - request new feature: ability deleting borders of cell from adjacent cell". Beside of the titel IMHO it is annoying, because the right border of A1 != left border of B1. This is unlike Excel handels and not intuitive.

Do we really want to add enancement requests here? Especially such ones that least some people feel are a low priority ones (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34449#c13)?
I would like to nominate a major regression from 3.6 -> 4.0
Bug 60589 - [Template manager]: Can not copy styles between different files and templates
The new template manager lacks some features, which the old one has... People can't upgrade from 3.6.7 until this is fixed...
add bug #60805 VIEWING: Particular border style and width invisible for zoom 100% + Scale 100%
there is more to this than some borders dissapearing at various zoom levels, there are some horribly artefacts, see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60805#c12
added bug 68607 " FILEOPEN: 8 page word document only displays page one"
It is a regression since 4.0.x and only opens 1 of the 8 pages.
I am nominating Bug 68313
This is a major blocker that will not allow users with languages with multiple diacritics on characters to be able to use Libre Office.
In short, these characters will disappear when preceding characters in the same word are formatted (bolded, background color changed, etc.). Some good test cases are on the original bug list.
Regression from 3.6.x as the problem did not exist there. Same problem in Windows and Linux.
Update, I have just seen it started *after* 184.108.40.206 (a colleague was able to confirm that Windows 220.127.116.11 does *not* have this problem)

Bug inherited from OOo, no regression, existing workaround. So not a MAB as proposed by several comments. And, as fixing it require large changes, it will not be fixed in 4.0 branch which is almost at its end-of-life.
add Bug 69495 - FORMATTING: Turning on and of direct Bold or Italic in one paragraph, changes that attribute in the next paragraph, when the style there does have Bold or Italic (edit)
I add: Bug 69593 - FILEOPEN: PPTX import with shapes causes text to disappear.
Text on shapes seems like a common scenario for PPTX import and so it should work. Currently, the text is lost. The same PPT works just fine so this isn't the problem of a missing LibreOffice feature, just a bug in import.
Adding Bug 59886, when save file as DOCX, date and time fields become static text ("Date (fixed)", "Time (fixed)").
Adding https://www.libreoffice.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi - EDITING: insert sheet from file - 'modify link' feature not working. And it is not saved.
Added https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=69984 - PIVOTTABLE: Pivot table reset sorting after editing layaout
Named ranges are broken after delete a sheet, and undo delete step doesn't recover the name range.
Hereby I nominate: "Bug 70355 - DATALOSS: Graph data tables swapping data in x and y axis in writer documents resulting in incorrect graphs"
Please revise https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59428
Nominating fdo#41169 -- it breaks all keyboard shortcuts on all non-latin layouts hard on Gnome >=3.6. Strictly speaking, this is an old bug, but with newer Gnome versions being widely used, it is gaining a lot of relevance.
Bug fdo#71409 Excessive duplicate accessible focused events for Calc input line
Using repeatedly F2 and [Enter], enter data becomes slower every time. At the end you need to close and reopen the file to work with it.
Bug 38592 is simple to reproduce and consistently limits the number of times I can save and reopen an xlsx file without manually fixing all formulas which include the CEILING function.
The unconditional adding of ",1" to the end of the function parameter list each time may be a simple mistake somewhere in either the saving or opening code.
Its annoyance is not related to its simplicity as much as its effective and consistent limiting of the number of times the file can be modified, closed and reopened without manual intervention. It was initially reported against 3.3 and is still present in LibreOffice 4.1.
Nominated bug 53410 - Inability to install to separate drive on Windows if you don't install all components.
I'm surprised that this one snuck by for so long - it was unconfirmed for over a year :-/ That being said it has been around for a long time (possibly since branching from OOo) but I think it deserves MAB position. If you do a custom install and deselect a component you lose the ability to install to a custom destination. Additionally if you select a custom destination first and then later deselect the component it installs to the right drive but then it's a corrupt install and you can't run LibreOffice.
added Bug 63433 - EDITING: Frequent freezes when scrolling large document with many pictures
regression of the 4.0.x branch. works fine in 3.6.7
Remove developer list for bulk change.
Readding developer list.
Added Bug 62176 - FORMATTING: Negative indents in styles not saved properly. This regression bug makes Impress in 4.0 and later unusable for any presentations built with a negative ident style. I and other users affected by this bug are forced to remain with the 3.6.x series to be able to use Impress (which I do every single day for work), and it's a pain to recreate the styles if the file is accidentally opened and saved with a later version.
Makes LibreOffice Writer unusable for scientific writing. References inside frames, for example figure captions, are broken.
Continuing the cleaning of mab4.0. Only bugs not yet reported reproducible in 4.1 or 4.2 should remain.
Added Bug 71961 FILESAVE: text doesn't fit into text boxes when exporting to .PPTX
This bug is a major interoperability issue with MSO, reported by many users.

Please read comment #189
CLOSING since 4.0.x reached end of life.
all still open bugs have been moved to the mab4.1 list.
please do not add anymore bugs to the current list.
The MAB docs on the wiki have been updated to reflect the new
Priority-based system for categorizing bugs:
The old MAB tracker bugs (mab4.3, mab4.4, etc.) will remain in
Bugzilla for historical reference, but should be ignored for current
FINAL mab4.0 STATS
fixed bugs -> 156
open bugs -> 0
