Filter Menu

When one attempts to open a file that LO Writer does not recognize, it
pops up a menu and asks you to choose one.

Menu items are in random order. It would be nice if it were in
alphabetical order, wouldn't it?

Thanks.

Paragraph Styles Not Updating

Hi all,

I am having to update a couple documents (contact directories) I created
under OOo some years ago.  I had to save the documents in MS Word format
(*.doc), but used paragraph styles to maintain uniformity of style and ease
of maintenance.  I wanted to change the color for a particular heading
style, and it should have changed the color for each of the headings of
that style.  Unfortunately, modifying the paragraph style did not change
even the particular paragraph the cursor was on, let alone the other
headings of the same style.

I right-clicked on the paragraph style in the Styles list box, then chose
the "modify" option.  I then chose the font effects tab, and changed the
color.  I clicked "Apply" and "Ok".  Nothing happened.  I also made sure
the "automatically update" option was checked.

I saved the document as an ODT document and then tried the process again.
Again, nothing happened.  The document was originally created in OOo (can't
say what version, just that I used a version recent enough to use ODF).
Any ideas what I can do, apart from changing each heading individually,
which styles are supposed to help me avoid?

I am using LO 3.4.3 (Portable Apps).

Thanks!
Don

Are they not in alphabetical order by extension?

This behaviour sounds similar to a bug that I've come across before.
Please have a look through these bug reports and let us know if this
is what you're talking about:

I just tried your example (after I posted my reply).  I find that the
selection is actually extended to K1:L155, which means it selects
column K and column L (but not the entire column, only up to row 155).
 This is very strange behaviour, as it actually extends the selection
to the *left*, although I pressed Ctrl + Shift + RightArrow.  If
you've found the bug report that describes your behaviour best, let me
know so I can also add my comments to it.

Regards
Stephan

I cannot answer that as the extension is not listed.

In any case, "alpha by extension" might make sense to a programmer but
as a user, I would like "alpha by name".

Re: Math does not export properly

Hi,

Thanks for the advice.

The equation will not export to a od writer format. I have printed to
file (.ps) but could not export to a pdf (apparently my printer does not
have that option)

Tried renaming the profile. Also doesn't work.

Cheers,

Jacques

Ghostscript will convert Postscript to PDF all day and every day. ;-)
