2014-07-30 23:08:12 +0100 Beantwortete Frage Is there an ppa to kepp LO up to date?

There are PPA's, yes. (See https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+a... ) But they do not jump for example from 4.1.6 to 4.2.4 or so. They only stay up to date in 1 minor release (4.1 branch, 4.2 branch, ...) until end of life. Then you should jump to another PPA.

There are some debates to have 'stable' and 'frech' line. Not sure if and when they will be released.

Kind regards, Joren

Hi,

These settings are stored in your User Profile ( https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile ). You can find instructions how to reset it on that page (here: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#Resolving_corruption_in_the_user_profile ).

PS: the location of your user profile is right above the reset explanation on that page

I hope that helps

2013-09-13 14:41:23 +0100 Beantwortete Frage Is it possible to integrate Libreoffice with C# Windows application

I'm not sure about C#, but I know there is an UNO API for C++, Java, Python, Basic, etc etc. Please see http://api.libreoffice.org/

Thanks for these nice words :-). The developers and all volunteers in general (QA, Website, development, infrastructure, ...) are happy to read such kind words. This is why we do it.

2013-09-13 14:34:29 +0100 Kommentierte Antwort How can I change which fonts appear in drop-down menu?

Yes, that's one of the bugs I was referring to. I know there was also a bug more related to this question. A bug mentioning to 'manage' the font list (select which fonts are shown, swap fontpositions etc etc). Still can't find it (dangit :) ).

2013-09-13 13:00:18 +0100 Beantwortete Frage How can I change which fonts appear in drop-down menu?

Simply: you can't (yet).

I know there is some bug/enhancement request flying arround in our database regarding "show the (recently) used fonts on top of the fontlist". I can't find a bug number right now, but I know there is one. What you would like to suggest about the "Collection" in the FontBook application isn't reported yet. LibreOffice don't do anything with this kind of lists. You can report it here. After you did create the bug report, you can change the priority to 'enhancement request'.

Kind regards,

2013-09-13 12:49:33 +0100 Beantwortete Frage Libreoffice 4.0.5.2 +MacOSX 10.8.5 + Jdk 1.7.0_40 not working

As far I can derivate from your "question" LibreOffice is telling you there is no run time environment? What if you go to LibreOffice > Preferences > LibreOffice > Advanced? Sometimes the problem is that there is no version selected in the available java list. Make sure the selection bullet is collored in the list and save your settings.

Did that solve your problem?

Kind regards,
Joren

2013-08-05 21:18:59 +0100 Beantwortete Frage Does Libreoffice open and read Openoffice documents?

Depends which file type you use for your documents. As far I know LibreOffice only removed the import filters for binary StarOffice files (like .swx etc) (see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/4.0#Feature_removal_.2F_deprecation). ODF, Word (.doc(x)), Excel (.xls(x)), Powerpoint (.ppt(x)), ... files will be imported like OpenOffice import it (or better :-) ).

I hope that's an answer to your question? PS: you can always install libreoffice on your XP computer to test it out. (download: http://www.libreoffice.org/download)

Kind regards,
Joren

2013-08-05 16:00:05 +0100 Beantwortete Frage Export data from c++ to calc

Yes you can, with a bit of code rework using the UNO API (see http://api.libreoffice.org/examples/examples.html#Cpp_examples).

Assuming you are using the PPA, the bug is fixed when you run a 'sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade'. fdo#63840 is the correct bug number, which is fixed now.

2013-04-28 23:30:13 +0100 Beantwortete Frage wish: purge unused styles

Currently there is no build in feature to delete unused styles at once. I was investigating to solve fdo#46719 (to add an "unused styles" filter), but I think I need to unassign me from this task due my lack of development skills.

So current status: not yet implemented.

2013-03-09 18:08:39 +0100 Kommentierte Antwort Can I export to a simple .odt?

I fixed fdo#46718 "UI: Delete multiple styles at once". So for now it should be easier to delete multiple styles at once, instead of delete them one by one. The idea for a "cleanup" button is also mentioned in that enhancement request (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=46718#c1). I'll try to create such button, but I can't promise anything, because the style handling is a bit to complicate to "just delete all non-default styles" (will result in crashes/loss of formatting/...).

2013-03-03 20:49:31 +0100 Beantwortete Frage Is it possible to open Writer directly on Mac OS X?

One possibility is create a link to swriter in folder /Applications/LibreOffice.app/Contents/MacOS/
You can do this by browsing to that folder, create a duplicate of swriter and drag it to your desktop.

I hope this helps?

No, that is not a feature of LibreOffice. But it is possible using other software, in combination of LibreOffice. For example a program called "Dragon Naturally Speaking". Please also see following link: http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/4274/can-libre-office-work-with-dragon-speech/

2013-02-26 18:48:54 +0100 Beantwortete Frage LibeOffice and MS Word styles.

Hi,

I hope I understand your question well, but there is a 'correlation' between the styles imported using LibreOffice and the styles used in Word. In LibreOffice we try to match them as much as possible. If this isn't possible, LibreOffice will create a style as good as possible with the style formatting of that document. Do we have a 100% compatibility regarding styles and the general formatting of the document: no we don't; but I think we already do a great job. There are many improvements of docx support in LibreOffice 4; but not all improvements will be visible for your documents. If there is a big issue (crash, data loss, several items not displayed), please feel free to file a bug for that: https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/bug/ .

Short summary: we do our best to match it with the styles we have in LibreOffice, if not, they'll be created and matched as much as possible with the initial formatting.

I don't see any problem exporting a document to your kindle. I don't have a Kindle, but when I search for the 'supported file formats' I don't see any file format, except for plain text, you can export using LibreOffice. Except you install an extension of course (I found this one: http://soft.alkinea.net/ ) (don't know it works or not, as I said I don't have a Kindle :-) ).

I hope this is an answer to your question?

Kind regards,
Joren

2013-02-22 19:12:35 +0100 Beantwortete Frage How to uninstall Libreoffice 4 in Ubuntu

2013-02-15 18:23:06 +0100 Überarbeitete Antwort How to convert documents to PDF on OSX

Hi,

You can do the same using the Terminal in Mac OSX (tested using Mac OSX 10.8.2).

  • Open Terminal
  • cd to your LibreOffice installation like:
cd /Applications/LibreOffice.app/Contents/MacOS
  • then you can run the same command as you used in Linux:
./soffice --headless --convert-to <extention> <path+file>

Example to convert all odt files to pdf in my Downloads folder:

./soffice --headless --convert-to pdf ~/Downloads/*.odt
  • To specify an output folder you can add the --outdir option
    For example:
 ./soffice --headless --convert-to pdf --outdir /home/user ~/Downloads/*.odt
  • For other options or help you can use:
./soffice --help

Kind regards,
Joren
