Description Harald Koester 2014-04-07 20:18:07 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
[1] Start LibreOffice and create a new text document.
[2] Insert some text and save file, but don't close.
[3] Insert some more text.
[4] Click Button “Edit File” in order to switch to read-only mode. A dialogue with the question “Save changes to … before closing?” is displayed. At this point the document will not be “closed”. So the question should be better: “Save changes … before changing over to read-only mode?” or similar. Also the caption of the middle button uses the word “Close”. Better would be “Change over without saving.”
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release

Bug still exists in version 4.4.3 with Win7.

Comment 7 Harald Koester 2016-09-30 09:35:45 UTC
Meanwhile the caption of the middle button has changed to "Don't Save". This would be correct if the question will be changed as proposed. 

Hence bug still exists in version 5.2.1 with Win7.
Comment 8 Harald Koester 2016-09-30 09:43:11 UTC
Also checked with version 3.3.0. There the question is: "The document ... has been modified. Do you want to save your changes?" This question is correct. Hence this bug is not inherited from OOo.

Dear Harald Koester,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
