    I recently downloaded libre office and have been working fine. Recently there was an update, however when i try to delete the old version, its stopped because it says it being used. how is this possible?

    Did you quit the program or only closed the window?

    I quit it completely as far as I am aware. I am thinking of deleting it then restoring the new software.

    there has to be an open process in the activity monitor, maybe it has a not easy recognizable name. if you can't find it, restart your machine.

    Hold command while selecting empty trash to securely empty. In my experience, this works for anything that OS X says is "in use" even if it doesn't appear to be.
