Before i entered more txt on page on the android matter, i got annoying
microsoft dominating the first pages,

probably bcs of the Asus Android transformer pad TF201 running android
4.1.1 , which seems to be infected via Googe channels and Asus software by
msoftpromo behaviour, time and dataspill
mind a lot of users have this ontheir windo machines when visiting you.

point out the economic advantage foor Google by usig Libreofffice and the
datspill in Oracle, and they will embrace Libre office but mind the
security to get the info towards the Googlemanagement as msoft has no
endpoint.

too ! the download push in 1st page is too much msofty.
the popup dominated the header images from Libreoffice.

Mvg,
Hans v Zuilen.

Impress and Base working together?

Hello,

I wonder if Impress can work with Base (or something else) to prepare slides
with variable content.

The main idea is that I would prepare a customized presentation using –
mostly – stock text that would be stored either in a database, or maybe in
Document files (text only or formatted ?). If possible, there might be
photos and videos too.

I know it can be done in Writer, by using form documents (ex.: the mailing
assistant) or even by creating a book. Can something similar be done in
Impress ?

Thanks,

Michel Gagnon

Re: justification issues (was: Libre Writer 5.1.1.3 - space correction between text words)

Hi :)
To me some of this sounds like it's going into "desktop publishing" rather
than just word-processing.  Writer is generally much more of a desktop
publishing than Word.

However something like Scribus or another proper desktop publishing program
might allow a lot more finesses.  I've never had the patience to learn
Scribus but i found that Inkscape offered me some interesting options such
as moving letters within a word so that the gap around narrow letters (such
as "l") and wider letters (such as "w") looked more comfortable rather than
being technically correct but looking slightly wrong.  To a large extent
non-monospace fonts already do that.  I get the feeling that Writer
defaults to sorting out some of that issue too.  I think that is one of the
many reasons Writer documents tend to look far better than ones done in
Word but a proper desktop publishing program should probably give far more
control over that process.  Inkscape is really not a desktop publishing
program - it's for editing scalar-vector graphics - but my 'art' had a
couple of words in it.

Scribus is freee and OpenSource but i found it too difficult to figure-out
in the less-than-no-time i had on the rare occasions i kinda needed a DTP.
It was faster for me to stick with doing horrible kludges to force things
to work with 1 particular machine and 1 particular printer.

Regards from
Tom :)

Text Roation

Hi Everyone

just tried opening a document, created oo about 4 months ago.

On my windows 10 Dell, running LO 5.1.2.2 some text in a calc cell was
rotated 90deg, now i opened up the document, it seems to have scewed it?

My mac OSX 10.11.3 running 5.0.5.2 still rotates text, when i move it round
the clock/degrees counter slider/circle??

thought opened up a new document on windows PC, and it scewed again??

ive took a screen shots from windows and mac, with the problematic area?
can anyone else re-create it on windows??

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/egwyf834d9z92kl/AADeyqJr-H6oBtDrRDqtCcVca?dl=0

configure external image editor

Hi  : )

I use LO 4.4 and the new Versión: 5.1.2.2.

When I right-click on an image in LO writer and select "Editar con
herramienta externa ..." I am not given the option of choosing a program
with which to edit the image. Instead the predetermined image viewer pops
up.

Where can I configure that I want to edit the image with The Gimp? 
Can't find it in Options, Help, the wiki and various searches I've made.

I use Debian 8.

Thanks.

Felipe  : )

Brian, thanks for clarifying my intent, and verifying my observation.

I'm still wondering if it's worth putting this in formally as an 
enhancement request -- or would it be so unlikely to get looked at that 
it'd not be worth the effort?

very slow loading of a ods file

I wrote about this a few weeks ago, but got no response.  Now I have 
done some testing and my results might cause someone to notice what the 
issue is.  I am running Ubuntu 14.04 and LO Version 5.0.5.2.

I have a spreadsheet of about 200k.  it is about 6 pages and there are 
some links between a few pages. Page 2 is a ledger with dates in the 
first column.  My dates start in the summer and end in the summer, not 
on a calendar basis.  When I am scrolling or entering data after 
December, the sheet slows to a point that a page down takes about 10-15 
seconds.  After copying to a test file, I deleted the pages other than 
page 2 (with the dates), one page at a time, saving the file each time.  
I then try to more the cursor after December.  No change for each page 
deleted.  On page 2 I started deleting columns, doing the same test 
(save/test).  No change all the way to the date column alone-no change.

It also takes about a minute to load the sheet.  The progress bar jumps 
to the middle of the screan, then crawls slowly to the end.

I then copied another test sheet and deleted all entries below December, 
calcs and cursor moves worked fine.

Therefore I concluded that the problem is with the dates after 
December.  I am doing no date math.  This seems like a LO internal 
(Java?) problem.

Thoughts?   Work Arrounds?

Can I interject a long-standing issue here, in which LO is by no means 
the sole offender?

It seems that full justification is always done linewise with no 
look-ahead. What's done seems something "gather words on a line until 
the next one won't fit; add spaces to this line to justify".

In pathological cases, this results in well-justified text for some 
lines, plus atrocious spacing on the next line. (sample random text 
below). This happens particularly in newspapers, where narrow columns 
exacerbate the effect, even with hyphenation.

The cure would be to look ahead (I've seen this done using DP) and 
optimise a whole paragraph at a time, rather than a line at a time. You 
can simulate this with a manually-inserted line-end near the "XXX" in 
the sample below (although LO will leave the unneeded space, it shows 
the general effect.) The overall presentation can be much improved, but 
clearly the code would be more complex and slower than now.

Re: delete hidden formated text in odt

       If you're referring to eliminating the formatting, then I think
you'll have a non-formatted document;
          if so, then using a simple text document should do this.

       The only one I know that still exists is Notepad - once placed on
all MsFt machines, but now not;
          I still have it - saved from my older machine - & would be glad
to upload to you if you so wish.

Dear LO users,

I would like to give away *.odt files without hidden formated text.
Do you have some advice how to remove the hidden (hard-)formatted text in a
simple way?
Is it possible by a macro?

(I am aware that you can make hidden text invisible and print the file
without
hidden text on paper. I also know how to remove properties)

Thank you in advance

Re: Libre Writer 5.1.1.3 - space correction between text words

       From a different perspective, a resume should not resemble a page
from a printed book, rather a resume should resemble a single letter to a
single company, or whatever.  I know many who see those resumes resembling
a printed page, and pitch it in the trash.

       Now, in continuing, see interspersed below,

I very much hope you are not. Unless you are German and using letter
spacing to indicate emphasis, you should not be tinkering with spacing
between characters within words (as you clearly describe here) unless you
are an expert in typography and fonts.

   [if you're desiring your letter resume to resemble a printed page; never
a good idea;
       if you're not satisfied with the appearance of the font, then select
another; for a resume, one resembling a typewriter is generally best]
