export ODT document to image

asked 2019-07-09 12:20:04 +0100 gravatar image

I want to export an ODT document (with several pages) to one image but when I do it from File > Export to... only it exports the actual page.
How can I export all pages?

What do you mean by using the data type image? this will be by definition one page. If you need multiple images of several pages you should be using PDF. Try exporting the file as aq PDF.

Why do you say "this will be by definition one page."? gravatar ( 2019-07-09 13:10:18 +0100 )edit

Let's put it this way: by definition means by definition of LibreOffice's export function or in other words: There is no option in LibreOffice to tell "I want all pages converted to image sizes so they fit all into a single page (whatever size this single page might be)"

Maybe a better word would be by design.

The suggestion to export to pdf is a workaround for what you wish to do. I don't think there's a direct way to do what you're after directly from LO.

I would export to pdf from Libreoffice Writer and then use a pdf viewer with the capacity to save pages as images.

On Windows there's PDF X-Change Editor.

On Linux there's a number of ways to do it. I prefer using pdfimages -png myfile.pdf pg.
