When a document is in an undirty (saved) state, setting freeze columns does not dirty it. It therefore cannot be saved without doing an artificial edit to force it to think the document is dirty.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create spreadsheet, enter some cells, save
2. Do a Window - Freeze
3. Try to save
Want it to save
Operating System: Windows XP
Version: 22.214.171.124 release
there is an option in:
Menu/Tools/Options/LibreOffice/General - Document status - Allow to save document even when the document is not modified.
Change status to RESOLVED NOTABUG. Please if you are not agree, REOPEN.
Thank you for your report. It will be available in LibreOffice 4.0.4.
