Screenshots of extensions.

I was using libreoffice 4.3 with VRT extensions for network diagrams.
But after upgrading to libreoffice 5.0, there is no extension manager listed under "Tools" menu. 
Nor the gallery button present in the "Drawing" toolbar at the bottom using with which I can access the installed pictures from the extension.

Refer the attached screenshots from version 4.3 where all these are present.
I had to downgrade to version 4.3. 

Is it possible to have two versions of libreoffice available for users? 
This will help people/organizations who use old but supported versions.

I cannot reproduce the problem.  Can you show us your build options?
Comment 2 mzs_47 2015-09-11 12:06:31 UTC
I used pkg to install it, did not build using make.
Comment 3 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2018-01-12 23:15:05 UTC
Is this still relevant? Or could this be closed?
Comment 4 mzs_47 2018-01-13 11:40:09 UTC
I have not tried this again. If you think it makes sense to open a new bug report please close this.
Comment 5 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2018-02-20 16:11:27 UTC
=> there is no extension manager listed under "Tools" menu. 
So I close here, overcome by events.
