Re: rtf files

Hi :)
I am copying some of the message back to the mailing list in the hope that
someone can help with it.

I think the answer is to create columns by using the menus
Format - Columns

The buttons/icons tend to be just for the simplest case possible.
Regards from
Tom :)

Can you help please ?

rtf files

I am using LibreOffice 4.3.0.4 with Windows 7.

Until recently I have been saving my two column pages of text in rtf 
with no problems. I have been doing this for years with no problems. Now 
the program will only save this two column format as odt.

I can no longer save in rtf and retain these columns.

I am not sure when the problem started, but I think it might have been 
when I upgraded to v. 4.3.0.4.

I am writing a book using InDesign, which will not accept odt but will 
accept rtf. So I have years and years of work in rtf.

Right now, I am not a happy camper because I can find no way out of this 
problem

Please, can someone tell me what is going on here?

Thank you.

Carole

Top Window without Decoration on Ubuntu

Hi,

I try to get rid of the window decoration on Ubuntu, but can't find a way.

Here's how it looks like on Windows:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/rvc3ftjrdeh2cx4/LO%20on%20Win7.png?dl=0

and this is on Ubuntu:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/fp4z1ceeleqxwr5/LO%20on%20Ubuntu.png?dl=0

I did set the flag for the window attributes to 512 (no decoration), but 
I'm still getting close bar on top of the window.

If someone wants to have a look on the code, my window is created with, 
it's here: (line 294 and below)
https://github.com/XRoemer/Organon/blob/master/source/py/menu_bar.py

Thanks for any help,
Xaver

Convertir csv en ods

Bonjour,

(Win7-64 -- LibO 4.1.4.2)

j'ai à convertir des fichiers csv (texte délimité) en ods.
Pour ce faire j'ai pensé utiliser le mode --headless de soffice.exe avec
l'option --convert-to ods
La ligne de commande est :
soffice --headless --convert-to ods monfichier.csv

Cependant je rencontre une erreur d'interprétation des données du csv :
les nombres commençant par de zéros sont interprétés en nombres, donc
perdent ce zéro de tête. Si je mets ces colonnes en délimité (par des ")
j'obtiens le même résultat. C'est gênant, puisque les départements dont
le code débute par zéro sont mal transcodés.

Exemple : soient les données suivantes
"Dept","Nom"
"01","Ain"
"09","Ariège"
"33","Gironde"

je n'arrive pas à obtenir un résultat cohérent (des codes avec leurs
zéros de tête lorsqu'il y en a).

J'ai cherché sur le net mais sans succès.

Je connais un script Python qui va bien mais si je peux j'aimerais
autant utiliser les fonctionnalités natives de soffice.

problems with the spell checker

Hello

I am on (K)ubuntu 10.04 using libreoffice 4.2.

I have installed hunspell, ispell and the dictionaries for English and
Hebrew, (both have the corresponding mark, when I check format,
character, font)

I also checked in language setting/writing aids, that the hunspell is checked.

However when I try to run the spell checker does not start but I see the
following window which I have attached:

thanks

You are right.

panel in open and save as dialogues

Libreoffice 4.2 and 4.3 on opensuse and xubuntu

The left hand panel in the 'open' and 'save as' dialogues shows 'Places'

Is it possible to change this to show the folder/directory tree instead, 
as in dolphin and nautilus? It would make it much easier to navigate 
through several layers of folders.

Ctrl+F4 Close document

Good evening
I just noticed something. I have LibreOffice 4.2.4.2 on some Windows
machines and recently also on two Linux (xubuntu 14.04) machines.
Usually on the Windows machines the KB shortcut Ctrl+F4 closes the
current document.
Under Linux it does not do that (I copied the user profile from the
Windows machine, following a tip here on the list).

Under "Tools -> Customize -> Keyboard" the item "Ctrl + F4" is greyed
out, both under Windows and Linux,
and I CAN NOT edit/modify it.

Am I missing something here?
How can I assign the "close document" function to the above key combination?

Thank you.
Thomas
