MAIL MERGE: Default fields "Topic" and "Subject" are only printed in first document

Hi,

I've some trouble with the default fields "Topic" and "Subject" of the
document properties.
They are only printed in the first mail merge document if I set the field
to the document.
At the following documents there are only whitespace.

Can anyone confirm my problem?
Is it a bug or a misused by myself?

regards
Sven

Calc charts, data in record form

All,

Looks like I will be keeping my data in Calc for a while - until we have
a better idea of what we want (changing a database is a lot of work).

However, I need to do some charts, and I have not figured out how to get
Calc to give me what I want, so I need a pointer or two.  I want line
charts, with multiple curves per axis (up to 8).  Perhaps something like
this: http://www.indiabix.com/data-interpretation/line-charts/

The data is arranged in record format like this:

Date      Location  Temperature    Humidity
--------- --------- -------------- ---------
7/1/14    Syracuse              71       79%
7/1/14    Albany                68       70%
7/1/14    Rochester             69       70%
7/8/14    Syracuse              82       68%
7/8/14    Albany                79       67%
7/8/14    Rochester             75       66%

So how do I end up with one chart that shows three curves for the three
cities over time (Location and Date on the X-axis, Temperature on the
Y-axis)?  I have looked at the docs amd did some Googling, but so far
I'm stumped.  I know that someone has done this, so there is likely a
very easy want to do it.

Dave.

I am using the latest versions of Mac OS and LibreOffice.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cannot change spacing in Math

  Hello!
  I have a problem: it is impossible to reduce the spacing in the LO
Math settings.

 I go to "Format" --> "Spacing..." , then choose "Borders" in the
"Category" drop-down list, and see that the settings are:

Left: 125.93mm
Right: 249.32mm
Top: 249.37mm
Bottom: 1.03mm

and I cannot reduce them (see attached screenshot). Is this a bug? 
And what is more important -- is there a way out of this terrible
situation?

  Regards, 
    Vladimir

news about LibreOffice

Hi :)
Wow!!  Just found this excellent page
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/LOWN/3
by William Gathoye

It is not always 100% perfect English but it's a great read and has some
quite compelling sections.  For example;
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/LOWN/3#LibreOffice_for_Mobile_will_be_soon_a_reality
which i really hadn't realised at all.  I thought there was a major blocker
preventing this and that on-top of having to re-write 100% of the coding
first.  However it now seems that only 10% of the code needs re-writing!
The UI issue seems a lot less of a problem too!

I wish that instead of the issues being 1, 2, 3 they gave the date, perhaps
in reverse order such as

2014-07-07
2014-07-14
2014-07-21

but it is MUCH easier to see those things in hindsight and it probably
wouldn't have occurred to me at the time either.  Luckily it is fairly easy
to set-up new pages, copy&paste contents and then set-up redirects from the
old pages.

The bit i never figure out is how to get the table-of-contents at the
beginning of the page.

Just out of curiosity can it be floated off to a different side?  (Even if
it can it's probably better to keep it where it is to make it consistent

Scan documents?

Is it possible to scan an older printed document directly into LO?

I have an old 2 page document that I want to reproduce and modify with LO but
don't find any entries in the menus for scanning directly into LO.  This is in
a Linux system and would probably use xine for the scanning.  

I suppose I could scan into a pdf and bring that into LO but would prefer to
work on an *.odt format.

Thanks, Tom  list moderator

status of "macro in ODF" interoperability?

Greetings,

When I wrote this, almost 10 years ago, things didn't looking too good
for "inter-suite" macro compatibility:

http://archive09.linux.com/feature/47935

today, I have the feeling thing's haven't really improved, when it
comes to macros inserted in ODF files, even considering only the
FOSS-based suites, i.e. AOO, LO, Calligra... but I am not sure. What's
your opinion, or reports from the trenches? Any feedback is welcome.

	 Thanks,
Marco

Thanks, but finally I've already posted your picture at [1] and is
used at [2]. I shouldn't have done this in practice, but as soon you
got the authorization, could you confirm the license I specified is
correct?

What is great is that the wiki used by the Document Foundation is
using the InstantCommons Wiki feature, so that I don't need to
reupload images from Wikipedia Commons and I can use them directly.

Chart data

Hi!
I'm trying to create a chart where when I add data I don't have to edit 
the data range each time to include the new row.
I can't see how to do that. (Probably something I've missed).
Can anyone help?

Ta!
