No I hadn't.

Re: Can't Paste into LibreOffice Calc cells

Seems Ok now - but again I had to dump, purge and reinstall.
I now presume this is all MB trouble while I wait for the replacement.

[SOLVED] Replace .com with .ca in searches if available

I'm in Canada. No offense to all you Americans, but we sure get tired of the Search Engine preference for sites in the USA as opposed to the rest of the world. When I'm looking for something online to buy, American sites are useless. Does anyone have an idea how to restrict searches to one country? ...

Re: Can't Paste into LibreOffice Calc cells

Nope. I've reinstalled LibreOffice, and in Calc, whenever I try any combination with "End", it moves to the LEFT, towards Home. What is going on here, anybody? And how do I get cell formatting to stick? I'm having to format every cell after I get the data in. Why? Getting really frustrated!!

Re: Can't Paste into LibreOffice Calc cells

Nope - too many other things wrong here, like-
Why does shift-end go to the left only one column? Why left?
Why are there dotted lines every 2 columns?

So are these issues unique to LO Calc? Or is my LO install messed up? Or have I just done something really silly?

Re: Can't Paste into LibreOffice Calc cells

Don't know what I just did, but lifting one foot and sticking out my tongue seems to have it working.

[Solved by MB Replacement] Can't Paste into LibreOffice Calc cells

I built a little spreadsheet here, I haven't done this in 20 years at least and I'm stuck on a basic:

Calc won't let me copy and paste anything into any cells, and I turned off cell protection

What else is wrong here?

And by the way, the Opera browser has taken a huge hit - it's taking about 5-6 seconds longer to find web pages.

Re: ATTN!...Intel CPU owners (Spectre & Meltdown flaws)

OK, but that makes it odd that yesterday the Update Manager gave a microcode update. I didn't notice the version number unfortunately.
