Description Petr Mladek 2013-02-04 11:15:40 UTC
This is the meta issue to track the most annoying bugs in LibreOffice 4.1.x releases. It helps developers to concentrate on bugs that are most critical 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
Comment 1 Joel Madero 2013-02-04 16:48:07 UTC
I am marking this as NEW to get it out of our UNCONFIRMED list :-D Presumably, any bug here will be indeed....confirmed and NEW
Comment 2 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-02-11 06:44:16 UTC
Add "Bug 60627 - EDITING: CRASH when 'Format - Bullets and Numbering'"
Comment 3 Panos Stokas 2013-02-12 09:20:36 UTC
Bug 38635 - Causes thin gaps to appear in borders, borders look as if they are stitched together and jaggies appear on non-rectangular borders in print. Bug doesn't appear in OpenOffice which would make some users print the documents from OpenOffice to avoid this.
Comment 4 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-02-20 21:42:42 UTC
I add "Bug 61187 - CRASH when click 'Add' in EXTENSIONS Manager"
Comment 5 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-02-23 08:46:11 UTC
I add "Bug 61332 - FILEOPEN other document via document-hyperlink in LibO3.6-document fails with error message"
Comment 6 Petr Mladek 2013-02-25 10:55:29 UTC
Add 60945:  'File -> Save as' shows 'Open' dialog instead of "Save As" dialog => hard to safe files
Comment 7 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2013-02-27 19:43:20 UTC
I nominate bug 61459: several icons are lost, mainly in the Navigator, Styles and Formatting and Formula bar of Calc. Very visible regression.
Comment 8 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-03-01 05:59:59 UTC
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
(Please excuse me for the MAB noise!)
Comment 9 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-03-18 16:18:15 UTC
I add "Bug 62478 - CRASH when FILEOPEN databases"
Comment 10 Jorendc 2013-04-08 15:43:05 UTC
I nominate "Bug 62971 - 3d scene displays 90deg right turned" on this MAB list. Seems like a display bug only, because it is saved correctly.
Comment 11 Jorendc 2013-04-15 10:12:10 UTC
I nominate "Bug 63547 - Cannot scroll horizontally using trackpad" (Mac OSX bug only, as far we can see) because of the regression 4.0 vs 4.1 and the fact it makes scrolling horizontally using the trackpad useless. You can only scroll in one direction.
Comment 12 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-04-18 10:51:03 UTC
I add "Bug 63680 - EDITING: CRASH when click on contents". More or less no editing possible with Writer
Comment 13 Jorendc 2013-04-24 18:19:32 UTC
I nominate "Bug 62088 - Impress crashes on setting master pages" because of the regression 4.0 vs 4.1.
Comment 14 Samuel Mehrbrodt (allotropia) 2013-04-25 12:15:30 UTC
I add Bug 63840 because it makes LibreOffice unusable for Unity users.
Comment 15 Petr Mladek 2013-05-13 09:09:23 UTC
Add bug 62937: It seems to be impossible to create new database
Comment 16 Kohei Yoshida 2013-05-14 13:35:13 UTC
Adding Bug 64584. Asian vertical mode is completely dysfunctional. It was working in 4.0.
Comment 17 Jan Holesovsky 2013-05-14 14:30:44 UTC
Adding bug 64586 - cannot save any text to ppt.
Comment 18 Fernand 2013-05-17 09:14:31 UTC
add bug 57079 because this is there sinds 3.3 and becomse worser sinds 4.01 and makes the "contour" feature unusable and documents started in prevsiuos versions un-editable
Comment 19 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2013-05-20 10:44:22 UTC
Added 2 very visible bugs:
bug 64685 : superscript broken, gives subscript instead, even in auto-correction
bug 64751 : Header & footer blue tags empty (no visible text)
Comment 20 Jorendc 2013-05-25 09:55:17 UTC
I nominate "Bug 64957 - EDITING: letters move around during editing/typing" (Mac OSX) due the fact of the markable regression vs 4.0. For some users this was reproducible with older versions, especially with zoom level != 100%. Now it is always reproducible.
Comment 21 Thomas Hackert 2013-05-26 12:21:51 UTC
Hello @ll,
I would like to nominate #64984 as it is IMHO a regression to 4.0.3 ... :(
Comment 22 Jorendc 2013-05-26 13:08:10 UTC
I nominate "Bug 64995 - Area button in toolbar result in crash". Note: Windows-only so far.
Comment 23 Petr Mladek 2013-05-27 09:25:27 UTC

adding 58317 - UI Pivot Table - Choosing Results to <current sheetname> in More does not set the cell address field enabled
Comment 25 Jorendc 2013-05-31 12:02:30 UTC
I nominate "Bug 64925 - Crash on display/paste Arabic text"
Comment 26 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2013-06-01 20:26:45 UTC
I nominate bug 65050 : automatic non-breaking space before specific punctuation marks in French texts broken. Regression.
Comment 27 Petr Mladek 2013-06-03 08:34:46 UTC
Add bug 65132: Too big font when editing presentation. The text is even harder to read. It is high visible regression.
Comment 28 Petr Mladek 2013-06-03 15:54:44 UTC
Bug 65305 - python stuff broken in LO 4.1 on Windows. Wizards and mail merge does not work.
Comment 29 Lionel Elie Mamane 2013-06-05 04:47:26 UTC
bug 64447, regression wrt to 4.0, "new database wizard" does not do what it shows it will do.
Comment 30 Lionel Elie Mamane 2013-06-05 16:42:04 UTC
bug 65168: report wizard now creates legacy reports instead of reportbuilder reports. Existing long-standing (from OO.org era) feature is now unavailable.

Comment 33 bugfinderx 2013-06-09 16:16:02 UTC
Add Bug 53034 - Document properties: Editing-time adding up incomplete
Comment 34 Thomas Hackert 2013-06-12 11:40:19 UTC
Hello @ll,
I would like to add "Bug 65653 - EDITING: Base crashes with queries with keyword "LIKE" in GUI-Mode", as it is IMHO a showstopper ... :(
Sorry for the inconvenience
Comment 35 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2013-06-16 17:37:42 UTC
I nominate bug 65501 which make impossible to save a document if "always create a backup copy" option is checked.
Comment 36 Cor Nouws 2013-06-23 19:40:31 UTC
add bug 65338 - doesn't retain font settings: after save as and again opening of presentation, font is changed
Comment 37 Thomas Hackert 2013-06-26 08:07:04 UTC
Good morning :)
I would like the following bugs to nominate as MABs (if you think, they are not adequate, feel free to remove them, but it would be nice, if you could explain your decision ... ;) ):

1. Bug 66009 - Crash, when inserting URL (as Joel has written, it may be an user error, but as it is the default selection, I think it happens more often ... :( ).
2. Bug 66094 - Crash when scrolling to a file with auto-updated links in it
3. Bug 66071 - Crash, when Undo is used too often (not really a crash, what someone told me at first, but more something like "changed document, which will not ask for saving" thingie ... :( )
4. Bug 56392 - Writer: hyphenation is not always used in line break algorithm (as it is a regression to 4.0.4 and making hyphenation unusable with Germanophone version of LO ... :( )
5. Bug 66158 - LO doesn't save path to own certificates (because it is not possible to use own certiicates beside of Firefox ones ... :( ).

Sorry for the inconvenience
Comment 38 irs 2013-06-27 08:43:32 UTC
I would like to nominate bug 57631 which, in comment #7, Jose L. Domingo on 2013-03-13, has presented his investigations. It seems that this is the same as Bug 59898 and Bug 64598.

thanks, Ian.
Comment 39 Kevin Suo 2013-06-28 06:20:25 UTC
As described in Bug 58577, when save a writer file as docx, the text frame is lost (while it still shows up when open with MS OFFICE).

This blocks my work.
Comment 40 Thomas van der Meulen [retired] 2013-07-02 14:51:57 UTC
I add but 66508  "Coping a chart will make Calc crass.". I think this bug is serious because now charts/copying is useles, slows down work and loses data.
Comment 41 Pedro 2013-07-04 14:52:17 UTC
I nominate Bug 66420. It causes data loss and is a very common action (adding words to personal dictionary)
Comment 42 untraceable 2013-07-05 15:05:57 UTC
I'd like to nominate bug 52226:
losing images when working with docx without extra backup of the files can have pretty bad consequences.

(This bug exists since 3.5.3 but is still present in I hope this is the right MAB.)
Comment 43 Michael Meeks 2013-07-05 15:23:53 UTC
Please don't add a known MAB to more than one version - otherwise it is impossible to see critical new bugs in 4.1. The image issue is a deeply annoying long-standing design issue that needs some funding for the several man weeks it takes to fix.
Comment 44 Samuel Mehrbrodt (allotropia) 2013-07-06 14:18:15 UTC
I nominate Bug 45233 because you cannot edit pps/ppsx Presentations.
Comment 45 manj_k 2013-07-06 19:55:31 UTC
I nominate Bug 66478 – hyphenation is broken.
Comment 46 Lionel Elie Mamane 2013-07-09 12:27:07 UTC

Comment 47 Noel Power 2013-07-09 12:35:26 UTC
bug 66718 - Clipboard API has lost functionality
seems this affects some extensions so moving to MAB
Comment 48 m_a_riosv 2013-07-09 16:42:43 UTC
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=66655; Function GETPIVOTDATA() always return #REF!
Comment 49 Petr Mladek 2013-07-16 17:23:58 UTC
Add the bug #66924: unable to edit presentation master pages
Comment 50 Lionel Elie Mamane 2013-07-19 01:23:04 UTC
outdated install instructions: README in tarball
Comment 51 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2013-07-19 16:00:40 UTC
I nominate bug 67093 : Title and Heading styles are mixed for several UI languages (FR, PT, Afrikaans, ...)
Comment 52 Kevin Suo 2013-07-23 01:59:43 UTC

Comment 53 Thomas van der Meulen [retired] 2013-07-23 08:07:28 UTC
I added bug 67206 - No autocalculation of a cell referenced to a cell, if a column was inserted before -- stops productive work and calculation of cells doesn't work properly.
Comment 54 Mihkel Tõnnov 2013-07-23 18:04:59 UTC
Adding bug 61544 - Some fields don't fit into Options dialog

Several duplicates (so it must be annoying to several people), leaves parts of options dialog inaccessible.
Comment 55 Cor Nouws 2013-07-26 22:40:39 UTC
add 67246 - FILEOPEN General input/output error for particular xls file
Comment 56 rpr 2013-07-27 11:08:02 UTC
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?
Comment 57 tommy27 2013-07-27 12:19:01 UTC
removed 37606 since it's reproducibile in 3.3.1, so mab4.1 is not its place.
Comment 58 Toni Ballesta 2013-07-28 09:24:50 UTC
Adding the bug 67361 - Segmentation fault for Base, on, Gentoo, Kernel 3.10.1. I listed the compilation options.
Comment 59 Björn Michaelsen 2013-07-28 18:59:50 UTC
suggesting bug 67099 as MAB, ~700% performance regression vs. 4.0.x in loading ods files
Comment 60 Cor Nouws 2013-07-30 20:45:39 UTC
Adding Bug 66864 - By using full screen applications and then restore them, the toolbar disappears in normal view
Comment 61 Cor Nouws 2013-07-30 21:32:52 UTC
Adding Bug 65686 - EDITING Data > Validity broken (for list entries at least)
Comment 62 Cor Nouws 2013-07-31 08:43:59 UTC
Adding Bug 67489 - EDITING: copied and pasted cells containing formulas are not recalculated
Comment 63 Cor Nouws 2013-08-02 20:05:48 UTC
adding Bug 67221 - [FILESAVE] Saving xls file which has cell with formula result #DIV/0! deleted formula, data loss

So it get's on the radar of the appropriate developer ;)
Comment 64 Lionel Elie Mamane 2013-08-02 20:57:41 UTC
Adding bug 67685: dataloss
Comment 65 Jorendc 2013-08-05 22:47:28 UTC
Hereby I nominate "Bug 67665 - ODG file forgets styles"
Comment 66 Joel Madero 2013-08-06 16:14:25 UTC
Added bug#66205 - a edit to a basic file results in loss of data. Bibisected & test file available
Comment 67 Joel Madero 2013-08-06 19:32:33 UTC
Nominated bug #67799 - complete loss of functionality for labels with 4.1 - regression
Comment 68 Cor Nouws 2013-08-09 14:56:51 UTC
Adding Bug 67815 - DATALOSS: Some cells with hyperlinks in XLS loose content on IMPORT
Comment 69 Peter Maunder 2013-08-14 14:32:15 UTC
I nominate the personas Bug 59230 which appears to effect .deb versions of 4.1. Although personas provides no "useful" function in LibO, it is a great emotional aid in personalising LibO and adding company branding. Although I can manually bypass the problem, this would not be in the skill level of the normal user.
Comment 70 m_a_riosv 2013-08-14 21:07:40 UTC
Added https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=68074

Formulas with error result disappear after reload, when file is saved as xls.

Adding Bug 68220 - EDITING: BUG: calc crashes on spell check
Comment 73 Mikeyy - L10n HR 2013-08-19 18:05:35 UTC
I would like to nominate bug 66506. This bug is half fixed, for XLS files, but it's still not fixed for ODS files.
It's an regression introduced in 4.1.

I'm adding it here to keep it on dev radar. If you don't think it should be here please delete it.
Comment 74 Chris 2013-08-22 18:50:34 UTC
I propose Bug 60589 - Cannot copy styles between different files and templates, I continuously have to close LO 4.1 and open LO 3.6 to transfer styles from documents to templates, especially for Calc.

Comment 75 Thomas van der Meulen [retired] 2013-08-23 09:27:16 UTC
"Writer incorrectly displays non-numbered list dot"  
Dot's are seen as unknown character since 4.1 beta 1
Comment 76 Thomas van der Meulen [retired] 2013-08-23 09:27:37 UTC
Beta 2 sorry
Comment 77 Thomas van der Meulen [retired] 2013-08-23 09:39:47 UTC

Dot's are seen as unknown character since 4.1 beta 2 

sorry for the spam
Comment 78 Cor Nouws 2013-08-23 10:38:25 UTC
Added regressions
  Bug 67534 - FILEOPEN SMB File is Locked By Unknown User message
  Bug 67885 - FILESAVE: Files locked after saved on network drive

Note that it seems that bug 67534 also has slipped in 4.0.5 
Comment 79 Maxim Monastirsky 2013-09-01 18:00:45 UTC
I add Bug 68431 - FILESAVE: Style Font name incompatible with older versions. Users can't force other users to upgrade their installation, just to correctly open their presentation. (Seems like a partially fixed Bug 67665)
Comment 80 tommy27 2013-09-03 05:34:04 UTC
added Bug 68756
msvcr100.dll not found after upgrade from 4.1.0 to 4.1.1 on Windows.
already reported by 2 users.
Comment 81 tommy27 2013-09-03 11:54:37 UTC
sorry, I meant Bug 68756 not 68576. I'm editing correct numbers.
Comment 82 tommy27 2013-09-12 15:38:13 UTC
I add Bug 68771 "Crash on launch on OS X"
4.1.1 doesn't work with some Mac users forcing them to revert to 4.0.5
Comment 83 m_a_riosv 2013-09-16 22:46:03 UTC
Added Bug 60270

Crash when click Help bottom after select some functions in formula wizard.
I think the issue is with the new functions in 4 like AVERAGEIF( )
Comment 84 Eike Rathke 2013-09-17 17:24:47 UTC
(In reply to comment #83)
> Added Bug 60270

That was meant to be bug 69440 that was already present and got removed from the list instead again.. re-adding.
Comment 85 Joel Madero 2013-09-24 13:47:15 UTC
Added bug 68103 - seems like we have another help issue - draw is linking to impress help that isn't useful for draw making it pretty confusing for users trying to accomplish headers/footers on master documents in draw
Comment 86 a07cd040897db54e103c 2013-10-01 13:11:48 UTC
Added https://www.libreoffice.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=68927

SVG-images used as page background are rendered as bitmap / rasterized in LO ( itself and even in generated PDFs or printouts. This worked fine in v3.4.5.
Comment 87 pierre-yves samyn 2013-10-01 14:05:48 UTC
I nominate two related bugs: 

bug 68981 Add dataloss: "thisComponent.store" corrupts the macro library password
bug 68983 "Save As" a document containing a macro library protected by password corrupts the password of the macro library

They meet three criteria (Blocker Bug Definition): data loss, security bug, unusable function

I think that is the Bug 62461
Comment 89 Cor Nouws 2013-10-05 22:51:07 UTC
adding Bug 69975 - SLIDESHOW: Customized slideshow broken; shows all slides
Comment 90 a07cd040897db54e103c 2013-10-07 07:59:35 UTC
(In reply to https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60270#c88)

I think this is *not* the same bug as in https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62461.

There is mentioned that the problem discussed in 62461 works fine in LO v3.6.5.

Tested this bug (68927) with LO v3.6.5.2 (http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/ and the problem can also be reproduced (image is *still* rasterized). So two conclusions can be made:

1. this bug (68927) must have been reintroduced in a version > 3.4.5
and <=
2. the bugs 68927 and 62461 can *not* be the same
Comment 91 m_a_riosv 2013-10-08 21:41:35 UTC
Added https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=70275

When any text around in the cell format around @ format, this text is added to cell content when the file is reloaded.
Comment 92 Timur 2013-10-10 11:03:42 UTC
Added Bug 59918 - FILESAVE: FILEOPEN: save document as docx and reopen result in an freeze/endless loop. 
It's an old bug from LO 3.6, but since 4.0 is approaching to EOL, I add it here.
Comment 93 esafe11 2013-10-11 18:10:02 UTC
adding bug https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=69548
Comment 94 Kevin Suo 2013-10-16 02:30:46 UTC
Adding Bug 55018, FILESAVE and FILEOPEN: Joined cells in table cause table distortion after save to doc and docx and reopen in LO.

This is an old bug, first reported in Sep 2012, and still reproducable in In my opinion, table distortion = data loss.

adding Bug 70198 - Other: field command "time (fixed)" does not work when used in a writer template file (regressions since IIRC)
Comment 96 Mirosław Zalewski 2013-10-24 12:30:23 UTC

I am proposing #67370: automatic hyphenation is not visible in text files exported as tagged PDF. Since PDF/A-1 format forces tagging, PDF/A-1 are affected as well. And PDF/A-1 were supposed to be readable and accessible in long-term future. This will be huge issue for government, business and NGO users when they switch to 4.1.

See comment #10 there for bibisect log.

Windows seems to be not affected by this issue. Mac OS X builds have not been tested.

Best regards

Adding https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35217#c8 re: structured outline limitations... and that anchor does point to my comment cherry-picking a relatively solve-able corner case.  In legal documents, the ability to comply with court rules is important.

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=51168 because doing editing only to discover some list formatting is unexpectedly unchangeable is even more frustrating; I bet the author of Bug 70871 feels the same way about their related problem.

Nominated bug 66988

Regression which makes LibreOffice lose the ability to print some borders. Also seems to affect performance. Simple test document available and bibisect is completed

Seems like drag & drop is freezing up KDE4, also it looks like a regression

This bug seems to be affecting quite a few users from the amount of comments/dupes.

I would like to nominate Bug 68249, a regression in which pasting charts with "data series in rows" from Calc into Writer/Impress results in badly mangled charts. This makes LO 4.1 difficult to use for presenting results. Bug is not present in LO 4.0.

Bug 68249 should be a duplicated of bug 71075, see my comments there, so 68249 should not be on this list.

Bug 71075 is already on MAB4.1 list.

I add Bug 67401  "Help -> About LibreOffice" Logo not smooth

this issue doesn't affect productivity and is just a matter of aesthetics... however I feel that this ugly about logo could be used against the LibO project to discredit the quality of the project.

I mean, somebody could argue that "LibO comes out with a scrambled about box, would you dare editing your documents with such a buggy software?"
Comment 109 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2013-11-07 10:25:48 UTC

I add Bug 62653 - EDITING: Crash on nested table delete (previously titled "Copy Paste Crash"). While the specific situation may not be too common, I experience some crashes with recent LoDev 4.1 that I can't trace, so at least solving this one would rule this out.

adding Bug 71248 - when multiple spreadsheets containing VBA macros are opened simultaneously, the last opened document is always considered the "Active" Document/Worksheet/Cell, even if a previous spreadsheet has the focus.  Additionally, if the "last opened" document is closed, references to something in the "Active" context fail completely.

Bug 72604 - Fax-Wizard - Personal Data are only partial adopted

The wizards are available to start a new fax (etc.) document from scratch. If the personal data are not adopted in the created fax document (and are not in the correct order) the wizard is not useful. This is also a very visible issue, because normal office users will create documents using a wizard.

I consider bug 59288 as highly critical. It practically means no conditional formatting until fixed. I found many duplicates, conditional formatting seems really messy in many ways. Evil thinkers consider it "a good example for what goes wrong in LibreOffice development" .
This bug must be fixed.

Bug 67104 - Default value of "Show cell grid lines" checkbox on sidebar. Highly visible new feature semi-broken, several duplicates, seems annoying enough.

Bug 61840 - FORMATTING: Formating numbers in Data Pilot table does not work anymore (regression)

Nominating this bug, because it is a regression (to 4.0.0.x and still here in and because it is really annoying to do the formating for each and every data pilot table / pivot table once and once again after the data is refreshed.

FWIW, this never worked, so not a regression. If it ever appeared to have worked before, it was a fluke.

Nominated bug 37223 - Impossible to copy just values from spreadsheet into a table in Writer - inherited by OOo but quite annoying.

a couple dupes and a few users involved. Plus I guess it was reported during OOo days and had 100+ "votes" on their infra.

Comment 147 Vossman 2014-03-03 17:04:25 UTC
Bug 71278 - UI mouse pointer disappears during presentation and does not come back after exiting presentation

Nominating this bug, because it is a regression (to 4.0 series and still in 4.2) and because it is really annoying, I have to restart LibreOffice in order to use my mouse again.
Comment 148 Stéphane Guillou (stragu) 2014-03-04 01:47:33 UTC

I nominate "Bug 63087 - Detective "Trace Precedents" or "Trace Dependents" pointing to a different tab does not provide reference cells".

Though the bug or rather missing feature is old I consider it to be very important. I find it impracticable to understand complex spreadsheets without a "detective", which works across worksheets. Therefore, I consider MS Excel to be necessary for understanding a complex spreadsheet, even if one works primarily with LibreOffice Calc.

please do not add new bugs here. the 4.1.x branch won't probably have other release after 4.1.6.
