    Libreoffice 6.0.7.3

    When I start the Libreoffice Writer application, it now shows a dialog box about a file not being recovered. If I select the Recover button, it errors out, then starts Writer. The specific document while it has been moved, it never had any errors either as I was creating it, or editing it. This only started happening in the past few days. Any thoughts?
    I feel more like I do now than I did when I got here.

    Not sure if this is current, but some time ago, this used to happen a lot, and hitting 'cancel' instead of trying to recover would get around this, and keep it from trying to recover again.
    Or look in ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/backup and move/delete any lock files in there.

    Well, there was nothing in that directory. So I played around with a few other files, but no other recovery errors showed up. So, I went back into Writer, the annoying popup showed, so I started the recovery, then told it to discard the recovery file. I looked in Dolphin, and all the files were in that folder, I never saw any unusual file that could be interpreted as a "recovery file", at any time. So I restarted Writer, and, well, it worked correctly. Not sure why Writer thought that a file needed recovery, but all is well! Thanks!

    The file is a hidden file like this: .~lock.Rcpts.ods#. So it may not be visible if show hidden files isn't enabled for the folder.
