Description Forrest Aldrich 2016-04-26 21:37:52 UTC
I just experienced an unfortunate series of events with 5.0.5.2 of LibreOffice which resulted in a serious amount of LOST WORK.  I'll omit expletives.

First of all, please fix the "quit" option for the Mac OS X release.  This is really, really annoying and causes problems like this to happen.  If I had a "confirm" dialog available, this would have been mitigated.

The application locked up while trying to save four (4) documents, after I accidentally selected CMD-Q (quit) vs CMD-W (close window) (see above problem).   I had to force the application to quit after about 10 minutes where it was obviously not going to complete.

Restarting LibreOffice, starting the Recovery Mode failed due to $(ARG1) being undefined for the three "untitled 1" documents.  One of them was a really long report I had been working on the entire day, and now it's apparently gone.

1) The Quit confirm dialog needs to be implemented

2) There is a bug where when trying to save unnamed documents, the application locks up in 5.0.5.2

Please, 1 bug per bugtracker because it can be quickly confusing to follow the state.

2 things you can try:
1) Upgrade to last stable version 5.1.2
2) Rename your LO directory profile (see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#Mac_OS_X)

Have in mind that whatever the office suite you use, make backups according to your rythm of work.

LO 5.1.2.2  Windows 7
Save Autorecovery set to 1 minute
Had untitled document (for a couple hours before the crash).
LO crash (with insert object).  
Seven (7) "Untitled" files were recovered, all of them empty. (even though there was only one (1) untitled document).
(checked in the \LibreOffice\4\user\backup, but nothing)

Please don't hijack this bugtracker which already must be cleaned up to contain only 1 bug.

As said in my previous comment, 1 bug per bugtracker because it can be quickly confusing to follow the state.

I can save unnamed documents, and also recover unsaved document in latest master

Resolving as works for me
