Description Petr Mladek 2013-06-12 12:54:49 UTC
This is a meta issue to track the most annoying bugs in LibreOffice 4.2.x releases. It helps developers to focus on bugs that are most critical for users. Also it helps users to be aware of potential problems.

If anyone wants to raise a bug as “most annoying” for the release, please add the ID of that bug to the field “Depends on”, leave a short description of the bug, and explain in few words why that bug should get privileged, for example:

        Add bug #XXXXX: Writer ignores page size setting. The default size is Letter. The document
        format is often broken when printing on A4 paper in Europe.

For details, criteria and further instructions, please see
Comment 1 Justin 2013-06-15 12:57:28 UTC
In nominate 60245 , add better autocomplete (ie intellisense) for Calc functions.
Comment 2 Michael Meeks 2013-06-17 13:45:58 UTC
Justin - most annoying bugs are something like blocker bugs; and enhancements like bug#60245 are not really appropriate unless this is cripplingly debilitating. Also - such bugs belong on the MAB list of the oldest version that they affect; thanks for filing though !
Comment 3 Jan Holesovsky 2013-06-19 19:09:17 UTC
Nominating 65924, makes the Writer really ugly.  Cannot fix myself in the following few days, so better to track it properly :-)
Comment 4 Lionel Elie Mamane 2013-07-09 02:33:19 UTC
Adding bug 66703 (Base): report design wizard silently does not start on MacOS X.

Really add the bug #66703.
Comment 6 Stefan Knorr (astron) 2013-07-18 14:33:00 UTC
Adding bug 67047 – badly looking About window, since this might mean the SVG reader has regressed.
Comment 7 Petr Mladek 2013-07-31 13:14:27 UTC
Add bug 67128: Auto Filter Sort Results in Crash
Add bug 66700: Crash when deleting field added in Report Design mode

Nominate bug 68512 "Open button and File Open stopped working" and bug 68552 "[FILEOPEN] XML filter: Excel-2007 XML file don't open", because these are a regression into the Master release:

a) bug 68512 – between 21st (ID:e8c0708ee9d0c01cbe0bdcb38ac14e34bdceef32, TinderBox: Win-x86@6-debug, Branch: master, Time: 2013-08-21_20:26:24) and 23rd (ID:45ef1eda9e8851d454237d91b7fc46299fd621eb, TinderBox: Win-x86@6-debug, Branch: master, Time: 2013-08-23_07:32:04) August;

Comment 10 ape 2013-09-22 01:27:26 UTC
 Adding error 69517 "LibreOfficeDev- (Win-x86@39) cannot start under Windows XP" because it is not possible testing program on Windows XP 32\64-bit, which are supported (look at readme.txt file).
Comment 11 ape 2013-09-22 01:28:36 UTC
(In reply to comment #10)
> @kendy:
>  Adding error 69517
Sorry, bug 69517
Comment 12 ape 2013-09-22 02:45:12 UTC

Sorry, that's my confusion.
 I found the Assembly log file, which specifies to use MSVCR-2012u1. The LibreOfficeDev- Win-x86@39 runs on Windows XP 32\64-bit after installing MSVCR-2012 update3.
 So is FIXED.
Comment 13 Alex Thurgood 2013-10-21 06:33:38 UTC
Adding 70664 - can not display images inserted into Firebird embedded db
Comment 14 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2013-10-24 04:12:55 UTC
I nominate bug 70596 because we can't ask users to have users / testers to live with broken packages on their install.
Comment 15 Jorendc 2013-11-06 21:36:41 UTC
Hereby I nominate Bug 71321 - Can't scroll down in Calc and Writer on Mac osx

A blocker for Mac OSX users.
Comment 16 Cor Nouws 2013-11-09 22:17:02 UTC
adding Bug 70449 - StartCenter: it is not possible to easily navigate through recent used files with the keyboard
Comment 17 ape 2013-11-12 20:17:06 UTC
Bug 62461 added because the API does not use a PNG image that is embedded in the ODF file in addition to SVG drawing.
Comment 18 Joel Madero 2013-11-15 02:58:30 UTC
added 70989 only because it's a new feature - not terribly annoying but the new statistics function doesn't correctly show the cell range selected in "output" range, instead it only shows the first cell of the selection. For a new feature we probably should have it working right out the gate :-D
Comment 19 tommy27 2013-11-16 13:58:37 UTC
I add bug 71584 - FILEOPEN: FORMATTING: formatting error in a file with two tables

Interestingly this old 4.0.x bug seems fixed in but still affects the 4.2.x branch (including Time: 2013-11-15_23:44:51)
Comment 20 Arnaud Versini 2013-11-19 20:26:40 UTC

added bug 72037 - LO 4.2: Wizards "Document Converter" and "Euro Converter" not working.
Comment 22 Regina Henschel 2013-11-27 14:05:08 UTC
Added bug 67576 "impossible to set printing page size manually". The actual paper size, which is set in the printer properties, is ignored. It is broken since version 4.1.2. The problem has produced several bug reports. Besides the here added 67576 it seems, that the following bugs are duplicate or at least related: bug 67727 "PRINTING: Paper Size and Orientation Fail in Brochure and Multi-Up Printing"
bug 67903 "Print dialog preview in Draw does not update with paper size change"
bug 72070 "Other: Page size when printing"
bug 71803 "PRINTING: Printing envelopes does not respect user inputted sizes"
bug 70676 "PRINTING: Difficulties with combining smaller pages on a bigger one"
Comment 23 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2013-12-01 15:21:17 UTC
Nominating bug 72005 : Background color for legend area hides the legend 
This regression may suggest that some data are lost, so a bad user experience.
Comment 24 Samuel Mehrbrodt (allotropia) 2013-12-02 11:23:46 UTC
Adding Bug 42709: Animated GIFs are not displayed correctly in Impress, while they are displayed correctly in Writer.
This is a regression.
Comment 25 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2013-12-02 13:47:33 UTC
Nominating bug 72022 : this regression make impossible to access the integrated / local help.
Comment 26 deepjungle.maca 2013-12-03 19:52:30 UTC
Regression bug 71714 EDITING: Small capitals are showed like capitals in editor from 4.1...
Comment 27 Cor Nouws 2013-12-03 20:09:43 UTC
adding bug 72279
"When you update the Index the words A) 1) and I) dissapear in LoDEV, in 4.1 works perfectly"
Comment 28 Cor Nouws 2013-12-03 21:46:28 UTC
adding bug 72287
[TEMPLATE MANGER] / [UI] selecting available templates not possible below the second row in the list
Comment 29 Eike Rathke 2013-12-03 22:44:45 UTC
Adding regression bug 72288, matrix case insensitive string comparisons don't work anymore.
Comment 30 ralf.krapf 2013-12-05 09:31:51 UTC
Add bug #72072: Text disappear when editing a 90deg Textbox.
This feature worked without problems in LO 4.0.x. So it may prevent users to update to the most actual version.
Comment 31 Petr Mladek 2013-12-10 09:47:06 UTC
Add bug #67388: There is a broken Debian menu integration because of wrong file permissions
Comment 32 tommy27 2013-12-10 12:55:43 UTC
I add Bug 72530 - Certain graphics lost in PDF export if lossless compression used. Regression from the 4.1.x branch, affects Windows and Linux.
Comment 33 Samuel Mehrbrodt (allotropia) 2013-12-10 16:34:30 UTC
Adding Bug 60870: The custom dictionary is not initialized at startup
Comment 34 manj_k 2013-12-11 11:01:44 UTC
Nominating Bug 72452 - Other: Page Number begins at 0.

Just compare the different page numbering in the recently published "LibreOffice 4.1 Draw Guide", DG41-DrawGuideLO.odt[1] – at first with LO v4.1.3.2 (correct), and then with LO-Dev v4.2.0.0.beta2 (messed up).

Comment 39 Eike Rathke 2013-12-18 12:41:00 UTC
Adding bug 72778 - switching default locale leads to weird number format codes behavior.
Comment 40 Joel Madero 2013-12-20 15:19:49 UTC
Nominated bug 72776 - appears like we have a new chart feature coming through (circles of some kind) but it's quite broken. Doesn't work at all in 4.1, in 4.2 and 4.2 it's just broken and shows incorrect charts + missing data
Comment 41 Joel Madero 2013-12-21 18:27:06 UTC
nominated bug 72953 - chart legends aren't showing up on a file that they show up in 4.1, confirmed regression, very popular feature. This might even be a blocker to be honest but I left it as a critical
Comment 42 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2013-12-22 14:06:38 UTC
I nominate bug 72741 because it is a severe performance regression in sorting.

Best regards. JBF

adding Bug 73614 - UI: when vertical scrolling a sheet with the scrollbar the screen is not refreshed from the first row that was not displayed

makes scrolling ungly and very user unfriendly
Comment 52 Dave Richards 2014-01-15 14:17:46 UTC
Nominating please 50855 (similar to 71783) which regressed somewhere between 4.1.4 and 4.2-beta2.  We have thousands of documents that are broken because Nimbus Sans font does not render correctly.  There is no reasonable work around and we literally will not be able to upgrade over this issue.
Comment 53 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2014-01-16 11:33:16 UTC

Nominating bug 73814 - PNG files in Writer badly distorted regression over
Comment 57 Mihkel Tõnnov 2014-01-24 11:59:23 UTC
I nominate bug 65138, the sidebar meta-bug. Since sidebar is on by default in 4.2, all the issues with it gain a lot more visibility, and we can't hide behind the excuse of it being experimental anymore.
A few bugs listed there are relatively innocent, while others can distort formatting (like bug 68806) or cause crashes (bug 67558, if it gets confirmed), meaning it gets really annoying pretty soon.
Comment 58 Eike Rathke 2014-01-24 15:19:32 UTC
Bug 73235 makes the Calc Function Wizard quite useless.
Comment 59 sophie 2014-01-24 15:56:40 UTC

Hereby I nominate 'Bug 74014 - Editing: Cell formula not updating on redo, even with a forced recalculation'
Comment 61 Laurent Balland 2014-01-25 09:24:35 UTC
Add bug 72962
It was solved in 4.2.0 RC2 but reappeared in 4.2.0 RC3
Sum button in Calc gives #REF
Comment 62 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2014-01-25 10:39:28 UTC
I nominate bug 73565 which make dates filtering unusable in Calc 4.2.

Best regards. JBF
Comment 63 Björn Michaelsen 2014-01-26 15:15:36 UTC
Nominating 74077, trivial to reproduce data corruption, regression against 4.1 using default file format.
Comment 64 Cor Nouws 2014-01-26 15:29:47 UTC

Comment 71 Mihkel Tõnnov 2014-01-27 17:16:53 UTC
Nominating bug 73860 - all spaces lost during font conversation.
Comment 72 Dave Richards 2014-01-28 13:10:11 UTC
#73860 and #50855 seem possibly related : spacing between characters during font render.  Nimbus Sans and Helvetica are similar fonts.
Comment 73 squeezechart 2014-01-30 11:41:14 UTC
please add #65074

bug is not entirely fixed in LibreOffice 4.2

XLSX cells with 2 conditional formatting rules are not displayed correctly:

1. p.ex. cell values =$H$13:$H$427 have a color scale 
2. cell values equal or smaller than =MIN(H$13:H$428)*1,1 should be bold
   (Arial unicode, size 10)

In LibreOffice 4.2 the second rule is bold but wrong font and not changeable

Spreadsheet can be downloaded here:


Behavior before LibreOffice 4.2:

cells with with conditional formatting sometimes show the numbers not centered and without points; cell borders are not shown (see for example I13 to I21..)

Steps to reproduce:

Spreadsheet can be downloaded here:


screenshot from Excel:


screenshot from LibreOffice:


Current behavior:

cells with with conditional formatting sometimes show the numbers not centered and without points; cell borders are not shown

Expected behavior:

All cells in the main table must contain centered numbers with thousand points.

sxc export has been removed on master, it's an ancient format superceded by .ods.  Is this really worth a MAB?  I think not.

Comment 95 xmlhttprequest.open 2014-02-16 23:59:57 UTC
I'm nominating bug 74595: Opening HTML files that have <!DOCTYPE ...>s that are not on the first line of the file cause LibreOffice to show the HTML source code.  To get the HTML contents to be displayed (instead of the source), I have to open the HTML file in a text editor and make sure <!DOCTYPE ...> is on the first line.  The average user, though, doesn't know how to work with HTML code, and won't know how to get the file to work.  So, I am nominating this for the LibreOffice 4.2 most annoying bugs list.  I'm not the only one that experienced this issue (http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Importing-HTML-in-LO-4-2-td4095550.html).

Adding bug 71961, interoperability problem with many duplicates
Comment 97 Tom Colley 2014-02-20 02:26:54 UTC
I would endorse an enhancement regarding this bug. Although not severe, it has been coming up as an issue since Version I suggest either:

a) enable custom dictionary as a Writing Aid during initial installation. The manual equivalent is: Go to Tools>Options>Language Settings>Writing Aids>User-defined dictionaries and enable User defined dictionary "standard [ALL]")


b) if the above dictionary isn't enabled, but a user opts to add a word to the custom dictionary during spell-checking/correcting procedures, then the user is prompted to give the application permission to enable this dictionary.

Comment 98 m_a_riosv 2014-02-20 04:10:42 UTC

Ranges in COUNT() function are not well counted if there isn't a range as the last parameter of the function.
Comment 99 Ed Barnat 2014-02-20 14:34:45 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. ....open a LibO (writer) document.  Copy and paste from within that LibO (writer) document to within that LibO document.
2. ....Open a web page or non-LibO document and copy web page text or url 
3. ....Past that text/url into the still open LibO (writer) document

Current behavior: The copied text from step 1 is pasted into the document

Expected behavior: The copied text from the web page/non-LibO document should be pasted into the document.

Current work around is to close all LibO documents, which clears the LibO clipboard. Re-open the LibO document and paste before doing any cut/copy from within LibO

Previously reported in Bug 62196 which does not appear in current known bug list.
Also see running issue in OpenOffice         

Successfully submited now as bug 70200

DOCX file opens fine but when you try to save it again as a docx it crashes LibreOffice. It's a pretty complex document (75+ pages) - I will tear it apart if asked to do so but a bibisect is available so maybe that's sufficient. I will ask OP to try to narrow down the document also.

No. Issue of bug 49514 does not even appear valid with current 4.3.0 or and the directional search of the reworked find bar and its navigate button.

When insert symbols (like U+0301, U+0300, U+0340, U+0341), which apply to the previous symbol, insertion process doesn't work properly. Seems like it uses wrong font.

It slows down the work so much (as you have to use "workaround"), that often it's easier to work in notepad and then copy\paste certain text into Writer. This is not normal work.

I found it in 4.2.3 but maybe the bug is also in earlier versions.
Comment 191 mchan223 2014-07-22 01:28:39 UTC
Add bug #76565: cannot paste anything into the new inline input fields, defeating much of their functionality
Comment 192 mchan223 2014-07-22 22:53:35 UTC
Re bug #76565

One obvious use for the input field is for serial or identification numbers that must be printed on several different forms or several times in one page, information that is often provided from another electronic source and which is extremely prone to human error if manually retyped instead of copied.

The current implementation breaks the ability to paste this kind of information into a template that was designed around the old method.

The entire interface is currently designed to make the user think that whatever they need to do to edit an input field should be done by clicking and then inserting the information and not by using a non-obvious keyboard shortcut (Ctrl-F9) or going into the variables menu in a manner that defeats the entire purpose of an "input" field.

We're talking about a difference of maybe 1-3 seconds for the old implementation versus 10-20 seconds for each field that requires pasted data. When you're dealing with dozens of these fields in an office full of distractions and urgent interruptions (the kind where you must open up a new document and work on something else, meaning you lose your place in what you were doing before) this adds up to significant loss of productivity.
Comment 193 Rik Shaw 2014-07-23 15:57:26 UTC
Nominating bug 81357: Setting default language to "None" doesn't stick, but reverts to "English USA".  This is very inconvenient for me (and others I expect) that work in multiple minority languages.  I set "None" as the default so I can keep "check spelling as I type" enabled, but it won't pop the "red squiggles" until I define the langauge of the document.

Comment 200 Klaus Langguth 2014-08-01 08:56:51 UTC
LO does not save the pdf files in the path of which the file was opend.
If we use windows dialogs, LO saves/esports the pdf files somewhere but NOT in the original path from which the file was opened.
Same situation when opening a file within a network with the ms file manager.
While the saving of the file meanwhile works, the pdf export / save as does not use the same path.
Windows 7 pro 32 bit, windows network.
Please change it! We are donater of LO an OO since long time, and we are really very very annoyed by this bug!
Thanke you for your fast change.

Hi Klaus Langguth,

You broke our MAB list!

This is a meta bug which tracks the most annoying bugs. Please do not change the fields of this one.

To report a bug, you should file a saparate bug report. If the bug you filed should belong to this MAB list, QA members will do it.

Nominating https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53228 (graphical elements created in earlier Calc versions don't have their position honoured in later versions). Nominating because in some use cases this causes catastrophic data loss; this is effective data loss with risk of total.
Comment 204 Adam Niedling 2014-08-06 13:54:16 UTC
Would it be possible not to move unfixed bugs from MAB lists? People like me are trying to find a stable version of LO to install on office computers. But if MAB lists are cleared then there is no way of knowing how stable each version is. If stableness can be measured by the number of MAB bugs that is.

Since the MAB4.1 has been cleared so just how stable 4.1 is? 4.2 is supposed to be stable (still?) but just look at the number of MAB Bugs.

At least please don't clear this list until 4.2 reaches its EOL.
Comment 205 Adam Niedling 2014-08-06 13:59:13 UTC
"At least please don't clear this list until 4.2 reaches its EOL."

What I meant to say is that please don't clear this list until 4.3 becomes stable (or still).

Please, don't discuss this on the MAB list. MAB is a tool for QA and developers, if you want your own list, you can build it by yourself using named tag in Bugzilla, see at the very bottom this page.

not correct, the 4.2.x branch will have a new 4.2.7 update (the last) in a few days. then the official END-OF-LIFE is expected by 19 2014
see: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleasePlan#4.2_release

please do not mess things removing/adding MABs without knowing the exact procedures.

that bug which is reproducible in 4.2.x has to stay in the mab4.2 list (I'm gonna put it back there) and will moved to the mab4.3 list only after the official EOL of the 4.2.x branch

the mab4.2 to mab4.3 migration will be done by QA people by that time.

I assumed 4.2.7 was out already as (1) I already got a 4.2.7 update on Ubuntu a few days ago and (2) the release plan states that 4.2.7 should have been out by the 26th of October (yesterday).
So I am sorry if in fact 4.2.7 is not officially out yet, I just had two good reasons to believe it was.

I am aware of the the "exact procedures". I have participated in MAB transfers before. In the wiki, the following is written:

"If there are no further releases of a LibreOffice version (or “branch”; e.g., 3.5.x), we close the MAB tracking bug for that version, and move all remaining MAB listed for that version to the MAB tracking bug for the next version – you do not need to do that yourself."

I assumed 4.2.7 was out, therefore I knew there was no further release for the 4.2 branch. I then asked Kevin to nominate that bug in 4.3 MAB as this is what should be done according to the wiki (no use of adding a MAB if no extra bugfix version is planned). This not me starting a "migration", even though I think we should get cracking on that before the 4.2 EOL as MABs hanging out here after 4.2.7 will have no visibility at all (and, once again, it is what is recommended on the wiki).

Thank you.
Comment 227 tommy27 2014-10-27 07:00:19 UTC
sorry for sounding rude in the previous post.
the 4.2.7 is not officially out yet but besides this I ask everybody here to hold on migrating mab4.2 to the mab4.3 list.

It's better to wait a few weekes for the exact 4.2.x EOL to be sure that no critical issue pops out in the meantime and that no extra release will be necessary.

No worries. Sure, that actually makes a lot of sense. It should be worded that way on the wiki to make it clear for everybody then, I am sure most QA people agree on that.

Comment 229 tommy27 2014-10-30 12:37:58 UTC
LibO 4.2.7 has been finally released today.

as said before the END OF LIFE of the 4.2.x branch is set on november 19th.
please do not start any mab4.2 to mab4.3 migration until then.

anyway feel free to retest the current mab4.2 which are still open [1] against the 4.3.x branch (4.3.3 released today) or against 4.4.x master, and post a new comment in the report page of that specific bug telling your findings (still reproducible, not reproducible, changed, etc. etc.)

I'll personally move all residual 4.2mabs into the 4.3mab list after november 19th, so again do not start any migration until then.

Adding Bug 85614 and Bug 85584. A feature was back ported to the stable 4.2.7 release. This new, incompatible sort breaks many peoples spreadsheets.(See Bug 81633 and its many dupes) The necessary fixes were not back ported, so sorting with 4.2.7 or 4.3.2 can result in data loss.

Comment 235 tommy27 2014-11-19 03:49:03 UTC
The LibO 4.2.x branch reached today it's end of life (EOL) and will be no longer supported.

This meta-bug is going to be closed, so please do not add any new bug here.

If you find a bug which qualifies as a most annoying bug (MAB) according to these criterias ( https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/Most_Annoying_Bugs) and is still reproducible in current LibO 4.3.x branch, please add it to the mab4.3 list (Bug 75025).

All the unfixed existing mab4.2 will be now reviewed and if still reproducible, moved to that list as well.

For the record here's the full list of the residual 4.2.x MABs at the time I'm writing:

Hi all,

The MAB docs on the wiki have been updated to reflect the new
Priority-based system for categorizing bugs:

The old MAB tracker bugs (mab4.3, mab4.4, etc.) will remain in
Bugzilla for historical reference, but should be ignored for current



fixed bugs -> 186
open bugs  -> 0
