Sorry about that, I'm using the Linux .rpm v.

After reading both Pedro's and Henri's responses, I wiped my LibreOffice 
folder in the .config and it now saves as it should.

All works great now! There must have been something causing the problem 
from the changeover from the 4.1.x versions to the version. It 
was also doing it on the version when I installed it.

Anyway, the quick fix does it.
