4.1.7 not working right

Postby Russ Ullman » Sat Feb 15, 2020 8:53 pm

Had issues with 4.1.6 so I updated, it's worse. All the pages come up with editing highlights and won't save any changes.

Are any items selected in the menu Edit -> Changes? Try deselecting anything that is selected. If that does not help, can you upload the document? To do that, click Post Reply and look for the Upload Attachment tab under the box where you type a response.

Every attempt either does not work or won't show the problem in OpenOffice Word. So I went with a competitor, it at least works properly and saves my changes.

OpenOffice Word


Do you mean the OpenOffice Writer application, or some MS Word (.doc, .docx) type files?

Correct on all accounts. Offered fixes don't work.

Extremely silly thinking on your part as AOO works for millions and millions of others so there is quite obviously something wrong either with you, your way of working or your PC.

Good luck with your new product.

OpenOffice does not have a Word component so not quite sure what you are talking about.

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.

It worked fine until my last backup, then it went crazy. If you can offer a fix that works I'll stay with OpenOffice.

Are you using Windows 7 or Windows 10?
