Re: Re: Is the "Office Open XML" option strict?

Yes, LibreOffice targets Strict in addition to Transitional (because Strict does not exist, as the
process to save Strict with MS Office  is not limited to choosing Strict but also to the user behaviour, in a
way that makes Strict almost impossible to obtain).

MS Office will create a Strict file only if the user saves the Document as Strict before doing ANY other thing
(for instance, adding a single letter or a simple space), as otherwise MS Office creates a Transitional file.

In addition, MS Office opens Strict files as Transitional (the default format), so that the user must save
it as Strict each time. If someone hits Ctrl-S, the file becomes Transitional and will NEVER revert to Strict.

You can try yourself. This is why I am repeating that a Strict file does not exist (by the way, Office for Mac
does not support Strict, so if you have a single Mac user, Strict is gone). I have made several tests, and
Strict is close to impossible to obtain when exchanging files.

I hope this explains the situation.

LibreOffice PPA

Dear all,

Would like to ask about up-to-date LibreOffice PPA - would be there any?
Even Y-PPA could not find any.

The https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ubuntu/ppa seems to be 
outdated.

Is there any TDF official LibreOffice PPA planned?

Best Regards,
Edmund

LibreOffice Online

Dear all,

I searched:
https://duckduckgo.com/?q=libreoffice%20online%20real%20time%20collaboration&t=lm
https://duckduckgo.com/?q=libreoffice+online+collabora&t=lm

Also I read:
https://www.collaboraoffice.com/libreoffice-online-questions-answered-what-who-how-and-when/
https://fedoramagazine.org/libreoffice-online-announced-by-collabora/

What is Collabora Office (https://www.collaboraoffice.com/)? Is this the 
LibreOffice Online? Probably not but it looks very much like 
LibreOffice. I know that Collabora and also IceWarp are developing 
LibreOffice Online.
*
**Still the question remains whether LibreOffce Online would support 
real-time writing (collaboration) or not?*
Is there any limit of participants doing collaboration?

Also people are asking from me about storage space - would it be similar 
like MS OneDrive and Google Drive - 15 GB for free....
I did not dare to say that in the beginning the LibreOffice Online would 
be with reduced functionality compared with desktop version...

Then

https://www.collaboraoffice.com/collabora-and-owncloud-announce-partnership-and-release-code-for-libreoffice-online-developers/ 
- it seems that CODE is yet another online office suite? Or would this 
be LibreOffice Online? Using ownCloud will solve the storage need and 
much better way than just 15 GB as Microsoft or Google offer. But

I'm sorry but what are you even talking about? You seem to call a clone (and
apply its negative nuance to it) what started as a
fork. http://www.opensource.org for more and again:
http://gerrit.libreoffice.org -> what you see there is not clone of Apache
OpenOffice .

It seems you want to make a political point while aggressively complaining
about a real issue with language packs on OSX and repeatedly "threatening" to
go back to Apache OpenOffice. My initial reaction was to help you sort out

Installing on Mac OS X

Once again I can't open LibreOffice after upgrading to LibreOffice_5.0.4_MacOS_x86-64 and 
LibreOffice_5.0.4_MacOS_x86-64_langpack_en-GB on my Mac (OS X ver. 10.11.2 El Capitan)
Get the following message:

    “LibreOffice.app” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.

I have to go to my security settings to allow apps downloaded from anywhere. Can't right 
click/open to bypass setting like other applications.

You need to fix your signing certificates so they are valid when an additional language pack is 
installed.

I'm one step closer to eradicating LibreOffice from my computer. Still need to open old 
WordPerfect files though.

Is the "Office Open XML" option strict?

Hello,

I was just reading yesterday that starting with Microsoft Office 2010,
Microsoft Office programs like Word and PowerPoint are able to read files
saved in the Office Open XML (OOXML) "strict" format. In fact as far as I
can tell Office 2013 or later natively supports reading and writing to the
strict format.

When saving in LibreOffice, I'm presented with the option to save my file in
the "Office Open XML" format. My questions are:

(1) Does LibreOffice also save it in the "strict" OOXML format? Is strict
OOXML fully implemented in LibreOffice?

(2) Is it better to save using the "Office Open XML" format, or the formats
named like "Microsoft Word/Excel/Powerpoint 2007-2013 XML"?

Yes, for software freedom purposes I prefer saving in the Open Document
Format, but I would get endless complaints from colleagues saying I'm
sending them weird and "corrupted" files... :( In fact even if I save in the
OOXML format I still get complaints, but at least I get less...

Windows 10 Mail not opening .doc with LibreOffice Writer

Hello,
I have a quick question which hopefully you can point me in the right
direction.
A friend using Windows 10 and Mail on a laptop had problems opening the word
2003 documents (.doc),which I had emailed her. I had a look and found that
Mail would allow .docx and .pdf to open with no problems. But not .doc
I saved the .doc document to her local drive and then opened it from the
local drive using LibreOffice Writer.
I thought it must be a Mail, issue but having read some articles on the web,
it was suggesting it's not a Mail issue but a file extension/association
problem!
If that was the case I don't believe I would be able to open it  with
Libreoffice, especially as I opened the .doc from windows explorer and not
from within Libreoffice, which means that windows knew that the .doc
extension was associated with Libreoffice.
Sorry to ask here but was unable to find an answer on through google.
It looks like a Mail issue but cannot find anything in Settings, any
advice/help would be appreciated.
Libre version 4.3.3.2 Mail version 176208.42001.0

Many thanks

Andy Driver

LO 5 PDF export sign/timestamp


hello

anybody had luck time stamping a PDF exported from libreoffice 5?

i tried on debian/stretch 5.0.2-1 with no useful error output

the export process doesn't prompt for TSA credentials

then, signing just with a CA valid cert works, but opening the PDF in a
windows acrobat or reader shows a modification warning after signing

does not seem thorough yet in the new libreoffice
