Why does the Properties window always open when using SaveAs

Postby Alex in Grimsby » Tue May 18, 2021 5:31 pm

I must have accidently clicked on something, because Writer never used to do this
When I use Save As to save a new document (ie. never previously been saved), Writer opens the desired/indicated folder, but after next clicking on Save it now always opens the Properties window and then waits for me to click on OK, (or Cancel, Help or Reset).

I'm sure that there will be a good reason for providing this option, but for my usage pattern it is just an irritant, and I have no need for it.
How do I switch it off, please?

Go to the menu Tools -> Options, expand the Load/Save list on the left and select General. Remove the selection from Edit Document Properties Before Saving.
That should fix it.
Windows 10 and Linux Mint, since 2017
