Description Stephen Rasku 2014-04-22 21:08:45 UTC
I noticed that if I open a file in LO Writer it will change the file date even if I don't save it.  This is annoying because I am looking at an old collection of cover letters and just opening the file will cause it to change from the oldest cover letter to the newest.

Cannot confirm under LO Build-ID: 882f8a0a489bc99a9e60c7905a60226254cb6ff0
Win7 Home 64bit

This problem occurs when using the search feature in Finder.  If you open a file from a search it will change the date to the current date.  It doesn't seem to happen consistently.  I did a search in a particular directory for a key word, 'TCP/IP'.  The first time I did the search, it changed the time but the second time (after clearing the search term and then re-entering it) it didn't.

I was wondering if it depends on the version of file (i.e. it happens to old version but not to newer versions).

I am using the same version as Harry Parry:

Incidentally, I am on OS X Lion if that makes a difference.

I think it's the same problem as in Bug 75467. Feel free to reopen if it's not the case.
