Page dimensions in LaTeX save as.


If  I import a doc file, change its page dimensions to 5.5 x 8.5, and 
export the result to a LaTeX file the LaTeX file does not generate 
the paper size I set.  The generated header looks like this:

-- 
\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage{calc}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{multicol}
\usepackage[normalem]{ulem}
%% Please set your language here
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\setlength{\oddsidemargin}{0.5000in-1in}
\setlength{\textwidth}{\paperwidth - 0.6000in-0.5000in}

AFAIK the correct way to set page dimensions for a non-standard page 
size in LaTeX is to use the geometry package.  

Ideally the LaTeX output file would reflect what was set in Abiword 
and not require hand manipulation afterwords.

Re: Page dimensions in LaTeX save as.


AbiWord's LaTeX exporter hasn't seen work in about 6 years, and even
at its best wasn't particularly faithful. I wouldn't expect much from
it. Bug reports and patches are of course welcome.

Cheers,
Dom

formatting in Word's endnote/footnotes not converted?


Hello,

I have noticed that when I convert a Word document to HTML and that
Word document has references either in Word's footnote or endnote
format, and those references contain formatting such as boldface or
italics, that formatting is not converted.

In fact, when I convert a Word doc that has references, Abiword very
often inexplicably turns all of the references into 100% boldface as
well as removing any other formatting that might be there!

This is seriously problematic and I am wondering if there is anything
that can be done.

Thanks,

Elise

Documentation


I could not find an RPM package for my system so I compiled from source. 
Several little somethings went wrong along the way, but eventually all 
worked.

I could not, however, get printing to work just as I expected it to, so I 
turned to the fine documentation. This appears to be way out of date and 
could be improved in many respects. I would like to do this! Whom do I 
contact, does anyone know?

The printing works better now that a did a further compile!

Our server is back online


As some of you may have noticed, abisource.com basically dropped off the
net today. It didn't really die, it just had a load of around 636.27,
caused by a shortage in memory. What caused the memory to run out is
still unknown, but I'm looking into it.

The machine is back up now, and everything should work just fine again.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
  Marc

Document Marking


I'm using AbiWord 2.4.6, with WIN2000. I find it quite useful and easy to  
use. I am puzzled, however by some of the markings I see on my screen.  
I've tried in Help to find an explanation, but to no avail.

In my documents words, and phrases are underlined in green. These  
underlinings occur in what seems a random fashion. They are not misspelled  
words (those are underlined in red). Can anyone tell me what these  
underlinings mean?

Re: Document Marking


The red marks are misspellings. The green marks mean that our grammar
checker thinks that your grammar is bad.
