Hi!I hope you could please help me.A couple of days a go, I was working just fine in writer, but then the toolbar of mendeley began to look weird and I couldn't add news references. So I closed the toolbar and then I lost it! there is no option of mendeley toolbar anymore.So I tried to install it again from mendeley but didn't work, I also found the options to install extension from the writer and it was the same. I asked for help from mendeley support and they told me to try to install version 5 but I can't find it in the official page so I tried with the first version I downloaded and didn't work.I already tried with versions of libreoffice, 6.1.5 and mendeley 1.19.4 and 1.19.5 and nothing. Please help.

I attached the some screenshoots of the error messages I get (Sorry, they are in spanish).

Install Mendeley Word

I asked for help from mendeley support and they told me to try to install version 5 but I can't find it in the official page

I bet they meant 'install LibreOffice version 5..' - and any released version of LibreOffice is available from download archive (mentioned on this Ask sites many tiles).

Mendeley Openoffice Plugin Install

Yes, I really tried with different versions but none worked (version 5 included).

Mendeley Plugin

I have just tried with LibreOffice x64 on Windows 10, with a normal Mendeley Desktop installed from, and it installed fine (plugin version 1.19.4), and runs correctly.. so - no idea why could it not work for you. I'd try to remove LibreOffice, and its user profile, just in case; check that no program directory remnants left; and then try reinstalling.

Hi! Thanks Mike Kaganski, I did what you recommended and finally i can use mendeley again.Thanks!!Also, someone recommend me to delete all files remaining in C after uninstalling both programs, have to looke for them in the hiden items, even used CCleaner ^^uAnd only then it worked.
