The global menu does show (default) in the top panel bar. I still can see the global menu headers : LibreOffice File Edit View ...
However all the drop down menus are blank ... Hence not usable.
I am not the only one to complain e.g.
Someone reported that "removing packages libreoffice-gnome libreoffice-gtk libreoffice-gtk3 solved the issue however menu will look like a Windows 95 app, but it shows ..."
Could you please investigate and in the mean mean time provides us the 4.0.2 (?) which was working fine.
I don't know where to get it for sure.
The latest version 22.214.171.124 was automatically installed through the following ppa in launchpad :
If I can add my 2 grains of salt, next time don't release something that is unusable, as I cannot get the previous [working] version which was removed from the FTP servers of the download.libreofficefoundation.org . Well, I am left with a choice of removing it completely and with no working substitute available anywhere to download. This looks rather un-professional to say the least ...

I just added a bug for this then marked as duplicate when I found this one. Big issue for me to say the least.
I got same situation on same system. Sub-menu is unusable (blank and when I clicked on item, nothing happened). I can work with functions supplied in right-click menu and keyboard shortcut (as long as I can remember the shortcut).
