Request for ODFAuthor Account

Hi All,

Suppose it's time I get one of these. Can someone get me access and then
I'll start looking at how things work in these realms :-D I'd like to be
able to answer easy questions (seems like quite a few new users are
jumping in).

Thanks in advance.

Best,
Joel

So, what was the final resolution on this?

Was it decided that:

1. There have been changes that until now no one has noticed.
2. The Linux distribution specific versions break things apart and you 
simply needed to install the rest of the bits and pieces.
3. The Ubuntu assembled distribution is just different
4. Something I missed?

Re: Request ODF Authors account

Hi Kevin,

sorry for taking so long to come back to you.

I've created an account for you on ODFAuthors. You should have received an
email with a link to set a password.
If there is something else, you need help with, don't hesitate to come back
and ask on this list.

Thanks for volunteering!

Re: Re: Base Document - Forms

Hi :)
Are you using Windows, Mac or Linux?  I am not sure how to do that in
Windows but in Linux it would be something like;

sudo apt-get install libreoffice-base-drivers

Rinse and repeat for the other 2.  In some distros you might need to
replace apt-get with something else, usually "yum" or something.
Alternatively just open a package-manager and have a look for those
packages/programs in there.

Sorry i have no idea how to check this in Windows! :(
Regards form
Tom :)

Off-hand, check that you also have the following packages :

libreoffice-base-drivers
libreoffice-report-builder
libreoffice-report-builder-bin

Base hasn't been changed since the start of LO with LO 3.3. There aren't
any extras installed for the forms.

In the first versions all Toolbars for forms where shown automatically
when starting to create a form. They had also been closed afterwords. I
will have a look for the version where it had been changed. Could be
many peole see the screenshots and thin there are some extras.
Open a form for editing.
Go to
View → Toolbars → Form Controls
View → Toolbars → Form Design

Are these the "optional extras" you are missing?

Regards

Robert

Re: Five chapters of Writer 4.2 Guide awaiting review

Hi :)  
Yes, i saw the email from Nino.  It makes a lot of sense.   

I've no idea how documentation would handle something like this.  Perhaps in
a coloured box?  or in the Preface or Intro (as Mac 's are handled)?  

If you can't make sense of a section then maybe it needs a bit of
re-writing?  That'd have to wait until the next version.  On the other hand
maybe it's just time you took a break, or read on past the section and then
return to it later?  
Regards from
Tom :)

Re: Five chapters of Writer 4.2 Guide awaiting review

Hi Kevin,

there was a similar problem last month although this related to the 
"function" key. The solution here was to tweak the bios (as you do on a 
Sunday afternoon when you have nothing better to do :)

I'll include the link anyway should you want to read thru'

Cheers

Re: Five chapters of Writer 4.2 Guide awaiting review

It was from the repos. I only download from the website on Windows.

I see that Nino Novak is saying that the KDE desktop is intercepting the
calls, which certainly fits what I am seeing. If so, there is nothing to be
done except possibly adding an explanatory note in the documentation, but
that is not my call, and in any case you should probably confirm what I am
seeing.

I'm still trying to figure out the conditional content. I have gone over it
about 20 times and somehow it isn't clicking for me. I can do the steps,
but somehow the part about triggering the choice/condition is just isn't
making nay sense to me.<g>
