[Solved] Missing tools in the menu

Postby veryfast » Mon Apr 25, 2016 10:38 pm

Hello,

I am using the Draw program for many years happily now, for basic drawings - nothing complicated.

Since one - two weeks ago the drawing program does not have the different tools that had appeared when you clicked on the down-arrow just to the right of the basic shape, or tools. Attached a photo showing in the red circle when I push the down arrow to get more line drawing options (in this case the line drawing options, but all tools behave like this now) there is nothing showing when you push the arrow; unlike before this, there were many other options on manipulating the line (in this case the line).

Thank you for the help.
Regards

I have installed AOO 4.1.2. It contains those icons:

You can try to reset (rename or delete) the user profile of the AOO. ( The AOO will create a new one when you restart it.)

Or you can install (by a clear installation) the latest AOO or LibreOffice version. The 'Clear installation" means: you need manually delete the rest of the program directory, and the User profile after uninstalling the old version.



Note: you will lost the custom settings, user defined macros, etc... when you delete the User profile of the AOO. You must make a backup of your important macros, etc. before...

I think you should rename your user profile,; OO will generate a new on on next startup.

Thank you for your replies. I renamed the user profile already, but it did not change. I will try to install the 4.1.2
