As you've stated this problem has been around since 3.5 I am changing version.

@Teemoz - version reflects oldest version that you've known about the problem, not latest tested on. If the problem still exists and is tested we simply leave a comment saying "tested on x.x.x.x and the problem still exists".

Comment 2 Joel Madero 2013-05-29 21:18:56 UTC
Same root cause, marking as a dupe and upping priority

Nope, ODS and XLS issues are different here.
Comment 4 Joel Madero 2013-06-07 03:31:25 UTC
Confirmed still -marking as NEW. Although you said that it might be NOTOURBUG since XLS is designed only to work in Windows. You think it's fixable or trickable from within Linux and/or OSX?

Confirmed, the link in 2.xls is not relative.

Dear teemoz,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
