Retrofitting a template to a document

All:

In trying out various allegedly ODF compatible office suites, I 
discovered that one of them stripped template data from the file.

Can somebody point me to an easy way to add the source template data 
back to the file?

Dragon Medical2 & Libre

Greetings To The Libre Office World!

We have been successfully using Libre Office 4.1 with Dragon Medical2, 
running on Windows 7, 64 bit, since January of this year. Most 
everything works well with the integration between Libre Office Writer, 
and Dragon Medical2, even the field advance buttons on the Dictaphone 
Powermic2 units work well.

Our one area of concern is with our medical, Open Document Templates.  
As the user goes through the template field, using the next field key on 
the Powermic2, when they begin to dictate into some of these fields the 
text comes out in Bold Style, despite the fact that the field is 
indicated in the template as standard text. These ODT files work 
correctly in MS Office, and Nuance, the makers of Dragon state that only 
MS products are supported.

We are looking for a coding consultant who can assist us in correcting 
this issue.

Torrent download always crash

Hi!
This is so many times I try to download so many LibreOffice releases by
torrent to test,
and the torrent client always crashing after a certain amount of time.
64bits Windows/Debian OS... Transmission/Deluge client... Transmission
daemon (+web interface) on a RaspberryPi...
Both are crashed before the end !

All those torrent clients are always working fine with others torrent files.

And now it's crashed one more tiem with current release 4.2.3

I really don't know how it's possible!

Re: Any reason why resizing an image does not keep aspect ratio by default?

Hi :)
Maybe a bug-report / feature-request to ask for a change?

It would make sense to me if grabbing the corners kept the aspect-ratio but
grabbing the sides, or top or bottom allowed you to distort the image.

Inkscape does it by showing the width and height of the current selection
and then has a chain-lock between them.  When it's locked the image keeps
it's aspect ratio.

I had no idea about the shift key locking the aspect-ratio so thanks for
helping make that easier for me!

Errr, i often find people distort logos and images even though they use
packages that supposedly make it easy to keep them undistorted.
Regards from
Tom :)

Any reason why resizing an image does not keep aspect ration by default?

Hello,

I can hardly understand the choice made in the default behavior when
resizing an image.

Most of the time, if not always, when I resize an image it is because it is
too large and I resize it so its dimension will fit the content design. I
very rarely need to flatten or distort an image in any direction.
So, for my use case, resizing an image should keep the ratio by default, and
for the rare situation when flattening is needed pressing additional keys
(shift or whatever) or simply using other handlers than the corner ones
would do the trick.

However this is not the choice which has been made in LibreOffice, and
moreover this behavior is not even configurable.
The non-configurable default behavior is to flatten the image, no matter the
handler which has been used, and for the supposedly “rare” case when the
user would-like to keep the ratio he can use his both hands, pressing shift
key on the keyboard while using the mouse to select and drag the handle
without releasing the shift key... which may pose severe accessibility
limitation for not computer friendly people.

What I would-like to understand is why this choice has been made?

Is my use-case so strange and unusual ? Do common people most often need to
flatten the image and not keeping their ratio ? Why this default behavior is
not even configurable?

When I look on the Internet I can see such question arise from time to time,
but with no real answer. LibreOffice is a nice software and I would-like to

Endnote references get corrupted with copy+paste

I'm running into a problem in 4.2.2.1 (and possibly even earlier 
releases) with endnotes/references getting corrupted after copy+paste 
operations. I reported the bug on the bug tracking site, and attached a 
small file to show how it can be reproduced:

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=77342

I wanted to ask here if anyone might have any suggestions for 
workarounds in the meantime. The document that I'm working on is a large 
book with sections for each chapter. In each section, I create endnotes 
and also cross-references to the endnotes (some references are mentioned 
multiple times). It's these cross-references that get messed up after 
cutting+pasting arbitrary text.

I haven't figured out what pattern of endnote definitions and 
cross-reference additions triggers the problem (and thus what to avoid 
as a possible workaround), but the document attached in the bug report 
shows an example. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

     -Kartik

old versions

Hi, I came across a post on linuxquestions where a guy had two different 
PCs: an old laptop running LO 3.5.7.2 and a newer desktop running 
4.1.3.2. He grabbed these versions from his linux package manager and 
wants to be sure of compatibility.

My simple solution is to install 3.5.7.2 on his desktop. Maybe he gets 
lucky and it is available through the package manager (it isn't in 
Fedora 20).

So I had a look at the download section of the website which only offers 
the 4.x series. Any ideas how I would go about downloading 3.5.x 
versions of LO?

Cheers

and not at all like the graphics in the all-new splash screen we get when
we start LibreOffice.  It might be worth posting a "feature request" to see
if the url-bar thing could be modified to make it more consistent with the
splash-screen or if it could be an option for it or if the splash-screen
could be accessed some other way.

Tbh i never pay much attention to the splash screen on programs.  Hmm, it's
not really a splash screen at all is it?  That appears earlier.  I think
you are right calling it the "start up screen".

Samsung Galaxy Tablet 2

Might anyone on the list be using a Samsung Galaxy Tablet 2?

I've been "enjoying" a Dickens of a time trying to get it to sync with
my PC so I can transfer a video file *from* the tablet to the
PC.

Samsung tech support has been abysmal and Google results have been
mostly older posts for older tablets or for transferring files *from* a
PC to the tablet that don't work for transferring a video file *from*
the tablet to the PC.

Thank you,

Charles.

You're right, the answer should have been the same as the one I gave
