open files automatically

Good morning from Japan
Maybe (I do not remember exactly) I did ask the same question years ago.

Is there a trick to tell LibreOffice, in particular Calc, to open files
automatically?
For the last 15 years or so I have been using Lotus 123 to keep track of
simple tasks like appointments, patient names etc.
But this software is now too old to work any longer (so the computer
tells me).

Lotus 123 allows to specify a folder and then opens the files therein
automatically whenever the software is started.
For those administrative tasks, a set of 2-3 files, this is VERY convenient.

I would like to convert those 123-files into Calc format and have Calc
open them *automatically* whenever I start Calc.

Is that possible?
If so, how do you do that?

Thank you.
Thomas

LO Writer -> rtf

I've got a book-length document heavily formatted in LO writer, which 
I've exported to rtf. I'm trying to understand exactly what gets 
included in that new file.

When I open it in WordPad on Windows it shows what I would expect an rtf 
document to look like--a continuous document, no page breaks, and 
minimal formatting.

When I open it in LO on Linux, however, I get a strange output with some 
but not nearly all of the odt formatting that I assumed would be 
stripped out when saving as rtf.

When I try to open it in WordPad in Wine, Wine freezes up. (Don't know 
if Wine is otherwise working properly, since I haven't really used it.)

What I'm concerned about is what will happen when I try to import this 
rtf into Scrivener or use it to generate an epub version. So, again, my 
question is what all is included in that new rtf file and do I need to 
do anything to get a 'cleaner' rtf file.

Thanks.

EB

Re: cannot select multiple words in impress

thank you for your answer. 
I think that it's the wight behaviour in LOImpress that click-and-drag moves
object/figure, no matter whether it's already selected or not. 
It's same in LOImpress in Windows. 
I occasionally encounter this happening which requires Undo (Command+Z), as
you said. 
I sometimes feel that it would be better if unselected objects cannot be
moved like resizing or cropping. 
I'm not sure whether it would be better or worse to others.

Re: cannot select multiple words in impress


Thanks for your clear describing my question. 
Yes, the useful feature (selecting a word by double clicking and expands the
selecting to other words by dragging) is not available in Impress. 
I wonder why this is not available in Impress. 
Is there a any considerable reason, or just a un-intended missed one? 

I'm waiting this feature available in Impress.

rogue multi-line spacing

Ahoy all:

I know of only two ways to increase the leading, or line-spacing, in a 
block of text (using, specifically, LO 4.3.7.2, Curtains 7/64 bit).

One is to right-click, go to line-spacing, and select.

The other is to put an explicit <CR>, or <ENTER> at the end of one line 
to insert a blank line before the next.

There seems to be a third way lurking, as yet undetected.

For a screenshot showing the unexpected behaviour, see:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/v3kgpkpia211dlx/LO-multi-line-spacing.PNG?oref=e

Dropbox is a little mysterious itself, but this link may be to the 
original .odt file:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/7daxotdw47fd20l/LO-multi-line-space-exemplar.odt?dl=0 

There's no way to illustrate a verification of my statement that the 
context menu hasn't been invoked, but the dearth of excess <CR>s is 
proven by the revealed codes.

Can anybody point out what I apparently haven't learned yet?

Libre Writer - default font

In LibreOffice Writer, not the umbrella LibreOffice program, I select
Tools>Options to bring up the Options dialog box. I expand the
LibreOffice Writer section, and select Basic Fonts (Western).

In the larger right pane, I change the top one--Default and change
that to Bookman Old Style 11 point.

I make sure not to check ‘Current document only” and then click OK.

Yet, every document I’ve saved as plain text always opens to Courier 10.

If I open a blank document it will open to Bookman Old Style 11 point.

If I then save a plain text document (In Libre Writer) with the
Bookman Old Style 11 point, close it and then reopen it the document
still opens to Courier 10.

Has anyone experienced and solved this issue?

Thanks so much.

Charles.

I didn't know that. You are never too old to learn.

cannot select multiple words in impress

I use OSX, Maverick. 
I'm not sure about that following happen in Windows or Linux, or else. 

In the Writer, I can select multiple words starting with one word by double
click and dragging. 
but the Impress doesn't allow me to do such job. 
I only can select one word by double clicking. 
Dragging doesn't do anything. 

Another annoying feature is that unselected objects (especially figures) are
moving if i click it and drag. 
this happens to content box, too. 
Although I just want to select certain object, un-intended movement of mouse
makes the object to move. 
It could be better, unselected object ignores click and drag behaviour. 
As resizing is possible to the selected objects, moving should be possible
to the only selected objects, I think. 

Is there something to do that I missed? 
ps. I hope that you understand what I want to say.

Auto-hiding toolbars

Hi.
Given that many of us use small-format machines (12" or less), is there 
any way of auto-hiding the standard toolbars? I've looked fairly hard, 
and can't immediately see how to do this.

Cheers

Gordon

Re: LO Writer and regex - finding "everything" but one thing

Hi  <at> gordon,

I hope this is what you are looking for.

<p(?!.*topic.*).*&lt;\/p>

finds paragraph with 'p' tag without 'topic¡ inside.

(?!.*topic.*).* does the exclusion.

A good place to text regex: https://regex101.com/
