Libre Office - 5.3.3

There seems to be quite a few posts re: tech glitches with the latest LO.

Is that just with the Linux version or are others finding issues with the
Windows version as well?

Thank you.

Charles.

Re: Libre Office - 5.3.3

I have had to drop our company back to 5.2, windows and mac included,
due to some issue that I can't remember off the top of my head.

I've found changes to graphs in Calc don't often stick unless I move the
graph a smidgen. They're not lost but just don't display outside edit
until the graph is shifted.

Possibly fixed in 5.3.3.2? Can't be sure yet.

I have reverted to 5.3.1.2 because of

Thank you all for sharing your experiences with LO 5.3.3

Which LO version would you suggest I upgrade to from my 3.1?

Is LO 5.2 a safer option with most bugs worked out?

Thank you!

Charles.

Charles,
My rule is to use the version ending in 6 or greater.  That is x.x.6.  
Usually, that is where development stops for that series. Therefore, it
is the most stable.  I am currently running 5.2.6.2. When 5.3.6 is
released, I will upgrade to it.

Hi Charles.
It depends upon what you are doing, as from 3.1 there have been some
changes.
If you use EPS illustrations, you may need to stay with an older version.
If you produce larger documents with more numerous images distributed in
PDF (books, manuals) it may pay to stay with the last of the 4 series.
If you just do day to day word processing and spread sheets, I would
recommend the last of the 5.2 series. The 5.3 series may even be fine.

I have not found any of them to be unstable, just bags that affect
certain areas of use.

Steve

No - the bugs will never "mostly be worked out" - there are thousands of
reported bugs. I recommend getting on the latest version. You'll get
lots of perks and new features and experience basically the same number
of bugs (give or take a few dozen). A nasty bug for me might be a
"didn't even notice" situation for you. The only way to know is to run
the version and see if it has any personal "show-stoppers"

I run master for professional daily use and it's fine.

re: Libre Office - 5.3.3

zahra,

Yes, I use Slackware Linux exclusively on all of my computers.  I was
surprised there is a LO 5.2.7.2 released.  I was not expecting that, so
I have not been keeping up.  I will download it as soon as I can.  
Thanks for mentioning it.

I normally use OpenOffice (AOO) for most of my work, since there are
some bugs in LibreOffice (LO) since 4.x  that I find frustrating.  
Mainly, that it does not restore my last session properly, where AOO
still does.  However, AOO no longer bundles the Base Report Generator in
their package and LO still does.  So I keep LO installed for my
quarterly database reports that I generate.  Other than that. LO and AOO
are interchangeable to me.

HTH.

Girvin Herr
