    Unhappy libreoffice incredibly buggy in 12.10?

    I just upgraded to quantal and I'm working on a paper in libreoffice writer and have noticed a number of bugs.

    After saving the paper, the menu items have disappeared. I can click the menu title but no menu items show up. I closed LibreOffice and reopened it, and am having the same issue.
    I couldn't insert a page break either.
    Is this a problem with my system or are other people experiencing anything like this in the stock libreoffice with 12.10?
    I'd really like to work with some reliable office suite soon because this semester is pretty busy. I have to favor usability and reliability over features right now..
    Any suggestions? A good alternative to LibreOffice in the repos, or is it something else wrong with my system?

    Thanks!

    This is problematic. I am in the same situation as you are in right now, and when that happens one has to either remember shortcuts, or reboot the computer, which is kind of an inconvenience.

    I did a very quick check, and I haven't seen the problem.

    I'm using gnome shell, not unity. Unity does weird things with the menus. Are you using Unity or Gnome Shell as your desktop environment? Logoff, and try switching (you might have to first install gnome shell if you don't already have it).

    Using default Unity the problem is there sometimes, but not always, though (which I forgot to note).

    LibreOffice 3.6.2 crashed a couple times on Xubuntu 12.10 and I have also had the 3.6.2 Windows version "Not Responding" for up to about 20 seconds on Windows 7 several times so I don't think it is a Ubuntu problem.

    I never had any problems with earlier versions of LO.

    I have the same problem. Libre0ffice is unusable, frequently crashes, and the items in the new "global menu" do not work reliably (i.e. no response or crash).
    I will have to try to install an older version or go back to Ubuntu 12.04, or another operating system. I also do not like that the window menus were removed.

    This one is not a bug, though, as it was intended, being part of the Unity integration, which was the whole objective for Quantal.

    yes. very buggy for me as well.

    somehow it truncated a novel i've been working on when i saved it, and then uploaded it to the cloud.

    it destroyed the file. i'm lucky i obsessively backup everything.

    12.10 is horrible in every possible way.

    Re: libreoffice incredibly buggy in 12.10?

    The issue with the disappearing menu is a known bug that is still being worked on. There have been various bug reports for it -- here, for example: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...e/+bug/1064962. So, you're not the only one! I believe the options right now are (i) dealing with it , (ii) using a WM other than Unity, (iii) removing the package 'indicator-appmenu' from your system, thereby disabling the global menus, or (iv) trying the experimental packages mentioned toward the end of the bug report to which I linked, if you are able to get them (they've been having problems building).
