Description Robert Großkopf 2013-05-25 17:31:04 UTC
Version is not right. I have tested with
Create a new database.
Create a table.
Try to save the table.
The table couldn't be saved by the button or by File → Save.

Create a table in the SQL-Mode:
The table could be crated, will be shown after View → Refresh Tables.
You could edit this table, also could add another field - it works.

My sytem is OpenSUSE 12.3 32bit rpm.
This bug has been confirmed in the mailinglist with Debian 64bit. So I set the bug to "New".

Hello Robert, *,
I have switched the version field to :) Was it not available, when you opened this bug ;? And I set it to regression, as it was possible in 4.0.3. If I am wrong here, feel free to change it back ... ;)

As I have found the bug first and reported it to the Germanophone discuss list, I want to confirm Robert's observation ... :( I have tested it in two ways:
1. "File - New - Database"
2. Click through the Database Wizard until you can finish it.
3. Give it a name (and change the path to save it, if you want ... ;) ).
4. Choose either to create a table in design mode or with the help of the wizard (it does not matter, which one you choose)
5. For simplicity's sake, choose to create it in design mode
6. Enter "Name", "Address" and "City" (or whatever you want ... ;) ) in the field names column.
7. Either click on the save icon or choose "File - Save" or press <CTRL>+<S>.
8. Confirm to create a primary key (here I was missing the possibility to save the table ... :( ).
9. Click on the save icon again or use <CRTL>+<S>. Nothing happens ... :( 

You could also try to close it via <ALT>+<F4>. You get the dialog, that the file was changed and if you want to save it. If you confirm to save it, nothing happens ... :(

Expected behaviour:
LO should ask for a name for the table and save it.

Confirmed with
OS: Debian Testing AMD64
LO  Parallel installed Version:
Build ID: 3a2c2d2417101e45fe07cfd8358acf2204a98f3 (with LO Version (Build ID: 0eaa50a932c8f2199a615e1eb30f7ac74279539) it is possible to create a table)
Java (if this is important): java version "1.6.0_27"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.12.5) (6b27-1.12.5-1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.0-b12, mixed mode)

Sorry for the inconvenience and have a nice day

@Stephan: a conversion related to bug 46808 result in this behavior. This might be interesting for you too (see Comment 3)

Thanks :-)

Hi Michael,
there are only 64-bit packages for Linux available. i don't have any 64-bit-system available here.

I have had a look at the daily builds. Why is the main-packages nearly 1 GB?

@Thomas - could you please test it with your system?

I still can reproduce this behavior using Windows 7 x64 with LibreOffice Version: Build ID: d24df4c708b8eb8dc3689fa72cbfc4e02e97f6b (downloaded here:

That's a patch of 2013-05-14 07:12:06

I have a master build ( on my Linux Mint 15 x64 too, and I still can reproduce it. My pull date is: Mon May 27 19:56:26 2013 +0100. 

@Noel: Are you able to reproduce this behavior too?

Thanks in advance,

Wow, that's a quickie :D.

I applied that patch to my master build (Linux Mint 15 x64), and I can confirm this fix mentioned behavior. Thanks for that Noel!
