doc2pdf conversion quality issue on Linux installation of Libre 3.5
A) We have installed LibreOffice 3.5 (18.104.22.168-3.5.4 to be precise) from the website URL: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/LibreOffice:/Stable/SLE_11_SP1/ on Linux (GNU coreutils) 6.12. We need this software to perform doc to pdf file format conversions along with other format conversions supported by libre (E.g.: doc2html, doc2ps, html2rtf, wp2html etc.). This is going to be used for a critical project in my division and we need extremely urgent help to answer this question: doc2pdf conversions on the above Libre version has some issues such as extra empty pages being introduced, spill over of text onto next page when there are long headers/footers in every page or dense text. The same issue is being observed in Windows (3.5.4 ) as well as Linux (3.5) versions. Are there any options (command-line / GUI) that we can give in the Libre (Linux/Windows) that could potentially help us with circumventing this issue ? Please let us know on priority. Also is a more stable version of Libre (where these bugs have been fixed) going to be released soon.. if so how soon and when can we download the same? A mail from our architects/technologists describing the issues we are facing is also attached here for your ref (RE: Initial analysis valuation of LibreOffice tools.msg)
Business Need: We want to to get Libre up and running on PRODUCTION for critical systems here to replace legacy Windows conversion strategy that is currently being used (but has some scalability issues), with a Linux based solution using LibreOffice.
NOTE: I was unable to attach samples of doc files that we had issues with .. hence please let me know to which email id I can send it across for your perusal.
LibreOffice is made available by volunteers around the globe, backed by a charitable Foundation. Please support our efforts: Your donation helps us to deliver a better product!
