Hi, I tested Version 1.6.0 with "AOO 4.0.1 – German UI / German locale [Rev. 1524958 2013-09-20 11:40:29]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", “historic” 4.0 User Profile used for all predecessor versions. Works fine (I can not reproduce problem Submitted by Peyton Farquhar on 25 July, 2013 - 20:05). But different to OOo 3.3.0 and AOO 3.4.1 the small extra toolbar does not appear, and Lorem Ipsum Toolbar is not listed under menu 'View -> Toolbars'.
Best regards, Rainer

I'm attempting to use the Magenta Lorem Ipsum extension in OO v.4.0.0 on Win XP SP, however, it does not work. The extension is clearly visible in extension manager, and, I have removed/reinstalled/rebooted several times, but the taskbar shortcut that enables generation of the dummy text that was present in my previous version of OpenOffice 3.x is not in v.4.0.0. This seems like a glitch that hasn't even been logged yet considering v.4.0.0 is brand new. Also, I can't find any other references to the problem either here or elsewhere.

I've reported the problem to the creator via his G+ page and also sent an email to the dev team via the redirected email list service from open office dot org, as well as posted on the AOO forum. As this is a brand new problem with a brand new version, a resolution has not yet been forthcoming.

When I activate lorem ipsum in OpenOffice 3.0 the normal status bar
disappears. Instead I get the words "Created XX chapters from the". The normal status bar displayes again after the current
document is closed, and I start a new document

The problem with status bar is fixed in 1.6.0.
