Help Crash

Postby Ironmanxp » Thu Dec 28, 2017 2:14 am

Each time I attempt to open the Help Menu, the program crashes and starts the recovery, doesn't matter if its an existing file or newly opened blank spreadsheet. If you can't answer that, how about my help question which is, how to turn off the hyperlink feature so that every url written isn't highlighted with a hyperlink. Just want plain text.

Try resetting your user profile. Shutdown OpenOffice. Open any folder and in the address bar near the top enter
%appdata%\openoffice\4
That should take you to a folder containing a folder named user. Rename that to user_old and restart OpenOffice. You should get the registration screen. Is OpenOffice stable now?

I think you can get rid of the URL recognition by going to the menu Tools -> AutoCorrect Options. On the Options tab remove the selection from URL recognition.

Thanks, I'll give that a try. Well that fixed the Help Menu problem, but still can't find a way to turn off the hyperlink recognition. I changed it in the AutoCorrect options, but that didn't change it. Even exited and reloaded, still get a highlighted link for all www. @.com locations. I'll browse the Help Menu now for any other possible information. Thanks

The AutoCorrect Options suggestion did work for me just now. To be clear, changing that will not change previously detected URLs but prevents new URLs from being highlighted.

Well I guess thats something, althought I have a rather large file I was hoping to clear of all the urls.. Maybe a mass import?

You may be able find the URLs with FInd & Replace, If so, after you Find All, you can use Ctrl + M to apply default formatting. Do all of your URLs end in .com or fit some other pattern?
