calc: Find has never worked for me

I have been using LO from the 'beginning'.  I have never be able to get 
the menu command 'Find' to work.  Just to be sure I just tried again. 
The Edit->Find Selection has the three dots after it, telling me that a 
dialog box/menu will open.  Nothing happens, anywhere on the screen. 
When I press Ctrl F, the left margin moves, but do find prompt opens. 
When I enter edit->'Find & Replace ...' then Find and replace box opens 
and I use it.  When I press Ctrl H (For Find & Replace), nothing happens.

Oh yes: LO Version 4.1.3.2 and others back to the beginning, and ubuntu 
various versions-currently 13.10, but I have been using ubuntu since 
about 6 months after the big CD givaway.

Re: autofill in calc

Hi :)
i guess different people might expect different patterns.  Most of the ones
given in Gary's post make total sense to me.  Generally i avoid leaving it
to any spreadsheet program to try to guess what pattern i want.  Usually 3
values is enough to define a simple arithmetic progression but 4 values is
helpful to just make absolutely certain.

I think you can go into the configurations to define ones you personally
commonly use.  For example when i tried studying fractal dimensions and
chaos theory it might have been handy to have some interesting ones just to
see my lecturer raise his eyebrows.  Now i just live in permanent chaos and
never expect patterns to work out for me.
Regards from
Tom :)

autofill in calc

Hello,
I've been using autofill and noted some things, not so much bugs but queries about the way it works and if it
could be better. 

1) I enter (e.g.) 2, 4 and 6 into cells B1-B3
2) I then highlight these cells and use autofill to extend to B4-B9, and I get 8,10,12,14,16,18 in these
cells - exactly as expected.
3) If instead I extend only to B6 (but leave the selection in place), I get 8,10,12 in those cells. 

4) I can then resume the extension to B9, and get 14,16,18 in B7-B9 - as in (2). Again as expected. 

Here's where the fun starts:

5) Instead of 2, 4 and 6, I enter 2, 4 and 7 into cells B1-B3.
6) I use autofill to extend to B4-B9 as before. I get 3,5,8,4,6,9 in B4-B9. 

#It took me a little while to work out what is going on (when I noticed this I was using less related numbers and
wasnt extending so far, so the pattern was less obvious). It seems that each of the cells B1-B3 is
incremented by 1 to obtain the fill values for B4-B6, then again for B7-B9.
7) If I repeat step (3) with these values, I get 3,5,8 in cells B4-B6. BUT:
8) when I resume extension to B9, I don't get 4,6,9 but I get 3,5,8 repeated.
#This strikes me as very odd indeed.

Q: Is there a logical reason for this behaviour?  Wouldn't it be better if Calc were to use differences and
obtain the values 11,16,22,29,37,46 to fill B4-B9?
Aside: I notice Excel doesn't cope well with this situation either - it produces some (fractional values
which I haven't analysed).
In any case, surely step 8 should return the same result as step 6 (?).
(OK, that's 3 questions!)

Unable to split tables in LO writer

When I insert a table in LO writer it immediately starts at the top of the
next page as though a page break is inserted before the table.  This
frequently leaves a lot of white space where the free flowing text finishes
and the table starts: it does not look very elegant and pushes up printing
costs.  It only seems to happen when the table is bigger (longer) than the
remaining space on the page.

Does anybody know how to stop this so the table starts  immediately after
the free flowing text so there is no white space and the table splits across
two or more pages?

I am using Libre Office Version: 4.2.5.2 build ID:
6ff819b65674ae6c83f3cbab9e4a4c2b292a7a94 on Windows 7 Ultimate with service
pack 1.

Best wishes,

How to Link LibreOffice Writer Labels to Database

Can someone tell me how to link Libreoffice Writer to a LibreOffice Base
Database so that opening the saved label file will automatically bring up
any changes that has been made to the database without any prompts.

At present I either see a way to bring up a saved mail merge file that will
bring up the same data (old if the database has changed), or will bring up
the pre-merged file that needs to have the sequence to use the mailmerge
tool to update the information.

These are the current steps I have to do to see or print the new data:

Click on Merge file -> Answer the prompt to get the most recent data  (now I
have one page of the first record) -> Click Tools -> Mail Merge Wizard ->
Next -> Next -> Next -> Next -> Next -> Next -> (click) Save starting
document -> Finish

Now I have the updated data.

I'm hoping to have a way to save a file where one click on the file will
bring up the updated data without any prompts.

Thanks in advance for any input on this.

My organization is new to Libre. Looking for cheat sheets

Hi all.

We are brand new to Libre. We are used to MS office. Is there a "cheat
sheet" that says "If you do this in office these here the steps you need to
take to do the same thing in Libre?" Also we have noticed that when we
import documents especially those with tables the formatting  is altered.
any advice?
