    • Drag the selected NeoOfficeSecureEdition-4.0 folder to the Trash
    • In the Finder, select the Go > Go to Folder menu item, copy the following path into the dialog that appears, and press the Go button:
      ~/Library/Containers/org.neooffice.NeoOfficeSecureEdition/Data/Library/Preferences/NeoOfficeSecureEdition
    • Drag the selected NeoOfficeSecureEdition-4.0 folder to the Trash
  • Launch NeoOffice

Step 3 - If NeoOffice still has problems, try these steps

  • Quit NeoOffice
  • In the Finder, go to the /Applications/Utilities folder and launch the Terminal application
  • Copy the following commands into the Terminal window and press the Return key:

    defaults delete org.neooffice.NeoOfficeSecureEdition
