I have installed Abiword from the mint portal but find that there is a strange bug in it. When typing random letters will fail to appear on screen. When the document is saved and re-opened the document displays as it should with all letters present. If I continue to type the problem re-occurs with letters going missing. This makes it very difficult to use the programme.
Is this a known bug and is there a way to resolve it.
I have removed and re-installed Abiword but the problem remains.
I tried sending for some help with abiword and never got a reply. do not waste your time. I love Abiword over openoffice and I have been using it the last month or so but i have found that I delete a word I lose many words and lines too. they eventually randomly appear and I have had this happen that I just removed it yesterday and am now using OO word saved in RTF format. I am disappointed in Abiword.
You are not the only one that has issues with it.
I put it on my daughter's old Mac but I have not used it enough to see this glitch.
probably a linux/Abi problem...Too bad. I like it... I am not using it any longer and will refuse to waste my time with a glitchy App.
sorry - i have no answers; but I am empathic to your scenario.
