If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
(5.2.7 or 5.3.3  https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and 
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
