Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new document or spread sheet.
2. Edit some
3. Click save icon or "Save As"
In the Save As dialogue, the box for "Automatically select file name extension" is not checked. If manually checked it is not remembered till next time.
Either the "Automatically select file name extension" shall be checked by default (probably) OR it shall at least remember if checked last time.
This applies to Export as PDF as well, where the documents (.odt) extension is reused for the PDF file.
Can't remember I use to have this problem.
My environment is Gentoo Linux 64 bit using KDE. The dialogue used is the KDE/Qt Save As dialogue which is also the KDE default one.
Operating System: Linux (Other)
Version: 220.127.116.11 release
Hi E Ridderby, thanks for reporting,
Have you try resetting the user profile?, some times solve strange issues.
Hi mariosv ,
I have now tested to remove everything under ~/.config/libreoffice.
Now I have a slighly different behaviour: the add extension is remembered but the extension is never added.
This is what happends:
1. Open Writer
(The document name in the header is "Untiteld 1" without extension)
2. Write some.
3. Click Save ICON
4. The Save As dialouge appears with the "Automatically select file name extension" checked
5. The file is saved as "Untiteld 1" without extension.
Hi E Ridderby,
I can not reproduce your issue.
Can you the extension for all other files, this is an option in the operating system, hide extension for known file types.
In Linux I actually think it is up to each application to show extension or not, but I have them enabled (visible in Dolphin).
I guess you are not trying to reproduce the error on a Gentoo Linux so I can try to see if this is related to my setup or gentoo in general.
After rebuilding (i.e. reinstall in Gentoo implies rebuild from source code) libreoffice things works as supposed.
Sorry if I have caused any trouble and thanks for the effort you put in fault finding. I think this bug can be closed.
A note for other gentoo users in case they experience similar problems: revdep-rebuild did not find any broken library dependencies. Rebuilding libreoffice still solved this issue.
Thanks for you effort into find a solution,
please if you are agree change the status to RESOLVED NOTOURBUG.
