1 – I encrypted some critical spreadsheet files.
2 – When I start working I open the encrypted file in LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 (x64) and enter my Axcrypt password.
3 – Libre office makes automatic backup files and temporary files in the windows profile.
4 – The day after working in my spreadsheet. AxCrypt says either. Can’t decrypt or can’t encrypt this file for an unknown reason. I suspect the backup files which are created automatically by LibreOffice (default in every LibreOffice) have to do with Axcrypt being unable to identify or locate the file.
I will post more details as soon as I get the message again.
Yes, As per your screenshot there is a problem with the libre office.
AxCrypt works by decrypting files temporarily and then launching the appropriate application for the decrypted file, which thus is entirely unaware of AxCrypt. AxCrypt monitors the system for the launched app to exit, and when it detects this it will re-encrypt the file and wipe (overwrite) the decrypted file and then delete it.
So we have to completely close/exit the encrypted file and the opened corresponding application to AxCrypt re-encrypt the encrypted file(s).
