Well, your small address db may well kept in the embedded HSQLDB if that 
database is not constantly updated and you keep your daily backups and 
if you can live with the fact that only one user has write access at the 
same time. In case of a crash you would have to rewind the whole thing 
to the last backup.
Our external HSQLDB is constantly updated from several client machines 
at the same time. In case of a crash we would not lose many records (if 
any). All I had to do was installing the HSQLDB server, extract the 
script file from my embedded HSQLDB draft and write a configuration file 
for the HSQL server. Finally I added a 5 log-in users to that database.
Writing configuration options for a server into a plain text file is a

Which version of PowerPoint? I do not find this option in PP MSO 2002
(only other version I have is PP MSO 95). I ony find:
 Print what:
  Slides
  Handouts
  Notes Pages
  Outline View
(all of which are also avaliable with LO 3.3.4 and LO 3.4.3.)

I also don't find any option to 'export notes pages only'. But mine are
pretty old versions, so perhaps MicroSoft added this feature later on?
The only thing I found was a macro to do this[1], or the suggestion to
sent the presentation to Word[2].

Re: OASIS Standard ODF 1.2 Approved

Congratulations to all.

I believe that a solid open file format is extremely important. 

Am I correct to assume that ODF 1.2 is backward compatible? I.e. an old
application will still be able to open a ODF 1.2 document?

Dennis, one curiosity since you were one of the editors: I assume you didn't
use LO Writer to compose the 1217 page document. Which program did you use?
Scribus?

Re: New way for non coders to help with calc unit tests

Le 30/09/11 22:37, Markus Mohrhard a écrit :

Hi Markus,

Thanks for the heads up and the work on preparing the ground and basics
for what I hope will be a very useful addition to the unit testing of
LibreOffice. Although I'm not much of a Calc user myself, I will have a
look at what has been prepared and see if I can add anything useful.

Thanks once again to everyone who worked on this.

Re: Re: OASIS Standard ODF 1.2 Approved

Hi :)
All releases of LibreOffice have used the 1.2 (Extended) by default.  I think OpenOffice was using it for
quite a long time before that too.  I think the only program that still uses the older 1.1 or 1.0 formats is
MS Office 2010.  I think Google-docs, KOffice, Calligra, AbiWord & Gnumeric (together those 2 form
Gnome Office) and the IBM's Lotus Symphony (or whatever it's called) all have been using 1.2 for a few
years.  

In LibreOffice you can confirm by clicking on
Tools - Options - "+ Load/Save" - General
about half-way down there is a drop-down showing "1.2 (Extended)".  I usually change this to the older
1.0/1.1 in order to be able to send stuff to MS Office users more easily.

If you do have an older program then install any version of LibreOffice instead! ;) Lol
Regards from
Tom :)

ODF backend for AsciiDoc

Hi,

This is the first public announcement of a new project I started to create 
an ODF backend for AsciiDoc. For those who don't know AsciiDoc, AsciiDoc 
is a lightweight markup language that is designed to map to DocBook 
semantics, and as such, ideal for creating consistent documentation, 
articles and O'Reilly books ;-)

     http://www.methods.co.nz/asciidoc

Being able to convert from AsciiDoc to ODF (onto other formats through 
LibreOffice) is something that always appealed to me, and lead me to 
create unoconv for non-interactive conversions, and get 
involved with docbook2odf. However XSLT is not something I can introduce 
with great confidence at companies as part of a technical documentation 
workflow and docbook2odf was not the easiest to maintain.

The ultimate goal is for people to write basic documents in AsciiDoc, 
convert them to ODF, PDF or Word documents while applying a style in the 
process, without having to launch LibreOffice. However LibreOffice could 
be used to visually fine-tune the styling and using it in future 
conversions in order to give your documents a common identity 
(aka. corporate identity).

Result: no more messing around with XSLT or XSL-FO, and much more options 
wrt. styling.

The ODF backend for AsciiDoc is located at:
