Writer 4.2 Guide Chapters 12, 15, Appendix A

Is anyone working on any of these? Apologies if I've missed a note.

If no one is going to do them FOR SURE this week, I will publish them
as they are instead of delaying further. If someone catches errors
later, we can replace the published files. I want to get this book
DONE.

Reminder: You do NOT need an ODFAuthors signon to take a copy of any
of these files:
http://www.odfauthors.org/libreoffice/english/writer-guide/drafts-v4.2

You only need a signon to upload changed files. If there are no
changes, you don't need to upload anything; just tell the list you've
reviewed it and it's okay. If you make changes to a file, and there
has been some delay in getting signon credentials to you, you can
email it directly to me or someone else who can upload it for you. (Do
NOT email a file to this list; it will either be stripped out by the
software or it will annoy several hundred people who have no need to
receive it.) If for any reason you can't, or don't want to, edit the
file directly, you can send a note to the list saying what changes
need to be made and I will make them.

Another reminder: if you are working on a file, please put your
initials and the date in the "Checkout" column on this wiki page:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Documentation/Development/UserGuideTasks#Status_of_tasks_-_WG_-_LO_v4.2
When you are done, remove that info from the "Checkout" column and put
your initials and the date in the "Reviewed" column.

Thanks, all.

Re: Writer 4.2 Guide Chapter 14

Kevin,
I see a file in the Feedback folder, but it appears to be unchanged
from the earlier version, except for the date field that should not
have been there (and now isn't). Did you make any other changes in it?
I'm a bit behind on keeping up with what's been happening with this
chapter. I just want to make sure any further changes are being made
on the latest iteration.

Regarding the keyboard shortcuts: yes, a note about them is needed.
I'll write one. Thanks for catching that.

Re: introduction

Gary has been registered on ODFAuthors. Gary, you should have received an email.

Tom, you do not have the permissions required to register people or
even see who is registered. The small group that maintains the
ODFAuthors website is NOT the LibreOffice Documentation Team, although
there is some overlap in people. Our sysadmin does not want very many
people to have admin access; we've had problems in the past with "too
many cooks".

Re: infrastructure wiki

Hi :)
Ok, thanks Sophie :)  It looks like it's ready for more to be added and i
can easily imagine some things that might be useful in there.  I don't
think there is an urgent need to rush into adding things there right now.
It's good to know htere are plans for it.  That saves me from doing quite a
bit of work! :))
Many thanks and regards from
Tom :)

infrastructure wiki

Hi :)
I've done a lot of long over-due spring-cleaning on the Publications page!
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Documentation/Publications
Basically just got all sections to look&work roughly the same way as each
other.

Also tidied this page
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Documentation
a bit.

Hopefully the pages are better for it, rather than worse, but please let me
know!

Details
Publication Page
I finally figured out how i had really messed-up some sections and gotten
irregular gaps.  So hopefully all the sections look about the same as each
other now!  Also, hopefully, it'll be less of a nightmare to figure out
what goes where in the coding!

I added columns for some of the guides being worked on at the moment and a
column for the next version of Calc = hopefully the 4.4!  Getting the Base
Handbook and Writer and Math Guides done is already asking a lot of this
team.

At the bottom of the Draw Guide the accuracy was getting tooo visually
confusing.  I simplified it to look more like the way it's handled for the
other guides.

There is not much room in some of the columns, particularly for older

Re: introduction

Hi :)
Gary did join last week sometime.

I am not sure if he is already registered on ODFAuthors and i have no idea
how to check.  My fault!  I should have learned much more about ODFAuthors
- to register people and take the burden off otherwise already very busy
people.

We have been trying to hold off on proof-reading or reviewing the first few
chapters of Base because he'd said he was keen to start on Base.  It's one
(of many) reason why Peter G jumped in to doing the Forms chapter
straight-away.
Apols and regards from
Tom :)

LibreOffice in Windows 8

Hallo,
I am not a good Ubuntu user but has difficulty copying text from Google 
Translate to Writer. When I copy the text into Google translate and 
paste it into Writer, I get 10 rows that are empty and the 11 line 
contains the text I copied.
I've written about this before, in a previous version of LibreOffice and 
wish that you have the time and desire to fix it again. LibreOffice 
version 4.3.1.2.

I like LibreOffice and would like to use it fully in my Windows 8.

Grateful greetings from
Stig-Åke Edborg

Re: Base Forms - and subforms

Have you checked the contacts table directly? I wouldn't mind betting 
that you *have* been able to add contacts, but they don't have the 
people primary key.  I think you'll need to do some extra work 
manually (ie programming, not literally by hand) to get that to work.

This is based on a distant memory though, so I may be wrong.

Regards
Mark

You could add new contacts directly in the table?
Is the primarykey-field of the contacts part of the subform?
Is there any error-dialog appearing?

You are right. You must be able to add new rows in the subform. Subforms
arent constucted for only showing the content.

Base Forms - and subforms

I am checking the functionality of sub forms. I have a main table for 
people and a second table for contacts made with the people. They are 
linked by the people primary key. For each person there can be a 
variable number of contacts. The main form shows the people and the 
subform shows the contacts. Every thing works, if I change the person 
the corect contact records are shown. However I cannot add new contacts 
to the subform.  I have recreated the data base a number of times and 
then recreated the form and subforms but I am not able to add new 
contacts. I presume I must be missing something in the way I set up the 
form and subform.

Am I right in assuming that I should be able to add new contacts to a 
person via the sub form?

Regards

Peter Goggin

Re: looking for documentation team credentials

Well, all I know is that I tried requesting them through this list
several months ago and was told the system for setting them up was
busted. Then I saw people getting credentials here recently, and I was
told to request it from the list.

Thanks for replying Tom.
