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 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).
