I'm trying to create a mail merge document for a letter. I'm adding
fields directly to retain formatting control and NOT have to deal with a
text block which is how the wizard inserts addresses. I've had some
success after a LONG time trying to figure out how to do this.
Documentation is a bit lacking on this approach.
The real problem is happening when I try to close and then reopen the
document. The file appears to close fine but when I try to reopen it,
LibreOffice seems to think the file is damaged. I can recover and the
file opens fine, but same thing happens when I try to reopen again. I
can also "discard" the auto-recovery which should fix the auto-recover
so it doesn't come up again, but in fact it DOES. Even when discarding
recovery points, the program continues to think there's a problem with
the file and re-opens the auto recovery.
I can't find any way to deal with this problem. BTW, it seems that I
finally figured out how to generate the merged letters, so I assume the
file is basically OK. But I still get the auto-recovery screen.
I'd love to get this to stop. It's a hassle, slows me down, and doesn't
show LO at it's best when I'm showing friends and clients.
