libreoffice 4.4.0.2 on opensuse 13.2 tumbleweed, kde 4.14.4

Hi

i'm getting a regular issue with opening a writer document, copying some text 
(highlight text with mouse and ctrl-c) and when i'm about to do something with 
the copied text, the keyboard locks up (num light on) and the mouse can move 
about the screen but cannot click on anything.  I have to reboot the system to 
recover.

Is anyone else having this problem?

regards

Ian

Interesting comment about Writer Bugs in LinuxQuestions.org

Ran across this today:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-software-2/why-would-my-columns-in-libreoffice-separate-as-zoom-out-and-overlap-as-zoom-in-4175531965/

It includes the quote "I know LO often acts like an annoying hysterical wife
-- lacking every logic and reacting is every way except the expected way.
But it seems like you seriously think LO is reacting on your input, or that
you have a computer hardware failure setting the bits just so as to cause
this behaviour."

Another interesting quote: "Since you are running Mint 17.1 I assume LO is
fairly up-to-date, meaning in a very unstable development state. I found
that LO is bug ridden, and especially contains lot of regression errors in
the most simple things."

That last bit, although hitting close to home, seems awfully dismissive when
appearing on a non-Libre forum, and certainly doesn't help TDF promotion
efforts - should someone knowledgeable about the particular problem the
posting author describes take a look? I personally haven't experienced the
issues he (or she?) describes, so don't feel qualified to act as a diplomat
...

installing and removing extensions?

	  How can I install and remove extensions for LibreOffice?  

REMOVE:  "https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Extension_Manager
<https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Extension_Manager>” claims I can Remove or Disable an
installed extension by clicking the Remove or Disable button under Tools:  Extension Manager.  I can find
Tools:  Extension Manager.  However, I cannot find the advertised Remove and Disable buttons.  

INSTALL:  "https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/libreoffice-nlpsolver/
<https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/libreoffice-nlpsolver/>“ describes a '"Solver for
Nonlinear Programming" extension for LibreOffice’.  However, when I try to install it under Ubuntu
14.04 LTS, I can’t find a way do download it.  

	  Thanks, 
	  Spencer Graves

Help with writer files

Everything was working great until two days ago, I can no longer read any
of my saved files in doc format.
It opens into garbled text like this:

Documents that were created in the past week open up with no issues,
just my previously saved documents converted from word are the issue.

Any help is appreciated

Shouldn't it be more secure to by default disable macro support in LibreOffice?

Hello list,

https://threatpost.com/microsoft-reports-massive-increase-in-macros-enabled-threats/110204

http://blogs.technet.com/b/mmpc/archive/2015/01/02/before-you-enable-those-macros.aspx

We think macros and other rarely used, but high risk features should be
DISABLED BY DEFAULT in LibreOffice.

What do you think? Is it worth it?

Thanks..

Have a wiser and safer day!

Need Help with calc !!!

Excuse Me! In the first letter, I'm not exactly written. If you are
copying what a single cell, and then for example in another worksheet
using the menu "insert as" insert and communication - in this case the
link is inserted properly. But if you select multiple cells and mouse do
"insert as" elsewhere sheet or in another sheet, references to empty cells
for some reason do not have communication with them.

Извините! В первом письме я не точно написал. Если
копирую какую нибудь
одну ячейку, а затем например в другом листе
использую меню "вставить как"
и вставляю связь - в этом случае ссылка нормально
вставляется. Но если
выделить мышкой несколько ячеек и сделать "вставить
как" в другом месте
листа или в другом листе, то ссылки на пустые ячейки
почему,то не имеют с
ними связи.

Need Help with calc

Hello!
Need Help with calc. I often use links to other cells. That is, for
example, copying what a cell, and then for example in another worksheet
using the menu "insert as" and insert a link. But if I cell is empty, then
"insert as a" link on an empty cell is not working. You can of course use
a formula such as: = A1, but it is not convenient.

Здравствуйте!
Требуется помощь по calc. Я часто использую ссылки на
другие ячейки. То
есть например: копирую какую нибудь ячейку, а затем
например в другом
листе использую меню "вставить как" и вставляю связь.
Но если я ячейке
пусто, то "вставить как" связь на пустую ячейку не
работает.  Можно
конечно использовать формулу например: =A1, но это не удобно.

MySQL - LO Base question.

Hi All

I have been running a MySQL Database with LO Base as a front-end for 
some time now -
and VERY successfully indeed compared to the built-in engine in LO Base!!
(My OpSys is PClinuxOS 32-bit)

For a variety of reasons I decided to "rebuild" my system last week. I 
have a back-up of my Database as a CSV file and have completely wiped 
the hard drive and reinstalled the OpSys and all relevant programs and 
copied all my data into /home.

I now need to set-up my Database again but have a question.
(My Database has only one table with about 2500 records and each record 
has 80 fields.)

Which is the correct procedure??

1) Set-up the Database in MySQL and create an empty table to import the 
CSV into. Then link Base to it.
2) Set-up the Database in MySQL then use LO Base to create the table and 
do the import
3) Set-up the Database using LO Base and then import the data.

Thanks for any pointers.

Printing Labels from Spreadsheet No longer working

I am using LO 4.3.1.2 on Yosemite
I have a spread sheet  that I want to create labels from.  This worked
well in prior versions but have not done it with this version yet.
I created an odb from the spreadsheet
Then a created labels and filled the master label with fields from the
selected odb
I created a new document which was the one page template with the fields
on it.
I did View Data SOurce and confirmed that the data source is there and
readable.
Then, no matter what I do, I can't get any data through the form and
only get the names of the form fields printed.
If I try the old mail merge wizard, and can't get beyond the select
address list even though the spreadsheet is shown as selected.
What am I doing wrong with this new version?  What am I missing?

Re: Typography Toolbar

Hi Frank :)
It sounds like it might be a good idea to contact the Extension's devs?

Are those Extensions under OpenSource licenses such as LGPL or MPL or
something like that?  Is it maybe worth posting a "feature request" to
see if our devs can fix it?  If it turns out to be judged as being an
"Easy Hack" that would help any new devs wanting something to practice
on and get feedback about.  maybe good to post a feature request to
help make it easier to fully integrate such Extensions into the proper
LibreOffice system more fully so that the toolbars can be edited in
the same way as proper LO toolbars?

It might be a good idea to contact the devs to see which of those
ideas is more plausible or see if they have better ideas.  Be aware
that devs do not always have a great reputation for being
people-friendly and many of the best devs can often seem quite abrupt
= so if they seem rude try not to take offence as they probably didn't
mean to cause any.
Regards from
Tom :)
