With LibreOffice 5.0 we introduced x64 builds for Windows. We know that is not that stable as the x86 version and moreover misses smaller seldom used features.

We do not have any problems in the infra team about unfinished downloads.

a) this is a form for helping out for problems with LibreOffice

b) it is very likely that your user configurations is somehow messed, try to remove our user configuration folder. SImply rename the folder which is located at C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\4 (don't forget to use your windows username. for more information look at I have no clue where does save his profile folder

2014-10-29 15:50:19 +0200 answered a question LibreOffice windows - extract numbers only from a long list of text and numbers

Paste the string in a cell, open search and replace dialog (ctrl + f) extended search option mark regular expression search for ([\s,0-9])([^0-9\s])+ and replace it with $1

hit replace all (us a seperate document for not accidentally replacing something different!)

now you get a list like 24991 24991 24991 24991 24994 24994 24995 24995 24996 24996 24996

to replace mutliple withespaces (e.g. ibetween 24991 24994) search for \s+ and replace it with , to get the comma between. ;-)

(sorry, hadn't used regex for a very long time so there might be a one-time replacement search and replace possiblity)

2014-09-09 10:10:41 +0200 commented answer Windows 8.1 does not allow install of LibreOffice 4.1.5 or 4.2.2

@rautamiekka it doesn't matter if IE, SmartScreen-Filter or the Defender finds something or not: the general default configuration is that these feature are turned on and @PeteEB having problems in downloading (or better saying finishing the download) of LibreOffice. We should help users and if they do want to change their configuration we can give them relevant links or advises.

2014-09-08 20:30:50 +0200 answered a question Windows 8.1 does not allow install of LibreOffice 4.1.5 or 4.2.2

Well the Smart Screen "extension" is a browser plugin by Microsoft which checks for Viruses using the built in antivirus software Defender (by Microsoft).

You might have some possibilities:

  • Turn off the defender
  • open the protection mode (with network connection) when starting and load the file again (dunno if the SmartScreen-Filter is turned off there by default)
  • using another web browser
  • turn of (partially or fully) the smart screen filter by
    • clicking [Alt] on the keyboard,
    • Extras
    • SmartScreen-Filter
    • Turn off the SmartScreen-Filter...
    • Hit enter after choosing to turn it off
2014-09-08 20:23:12 +0200 answered a question LibreOffice install Windows 7 "a folder could not be created"

I had a similar problem lately on a OS X maschine. Try to reset your useprofile folder (wiki Link to the paths) by renaming the folder and LibreOffice is automatically recreating a new folder when starting up.

Did you upgraded from any version 3?

Which LibreOffice version do you use?

2014-08-22 11:33:43 +0200 commented question How can I attach my document to an e-mail?

Sry, but this request is missing some details: * which operating system do you use * is the file still opened with libreoffice? * which libreoffice version do you use? * which email client? * well, where is the file saved? in your home directory under documents? in a temp directory?

2014-08-22 11:16:00 +0200 answered a question Does Libre open Pages documents?

LibreOffice is able to open AppleWorks since the new version.

Apple Pages can't be open right now, but there are some people working on a new (so called) import filter.

2014-08-21 18:06:46 +0200 answered a question I am unable to alter a libreoffice calc document and 'save as...' and change the name. I can only save as the original name of the opened doc. What am I doing wrong?

do you have access to the folder? is it a network folder? well, could you post a screenshot? Is the file locked already by somebody other (and you are in the "read only mode")?

I'm additional a bit confused. a Calc document with the file extension *.doc? (or is doc in this case "document"?)

2014-08-19 13:39:16 +0200 commented answer When will LibreOffice have a ribbon UI (as in MS Office 2007-2013)?

@Xanderxavier Well it seems you don't know how old the Ribbon Bar! The Ribbon Bar dates back to the 80s, so the concept is not really new! (Source)) I have to work with MSO2010/2013 at work since 3 years and I'm still searching for some features and functions very long as it really was easier in 2003 for the "not so common features" which were "hidden" behind some special menus.

2014-08-12 12:00:55 +0200 answered a question How do you create a pivot table with the monthly sum of expenses?

well mark everything from January to 1000 and then Data --> Subtotals --> choose the column with the money and on the right that the stuff should be summed up.

This at has nothing to do with the pivot table. I have never used the pivot table in calc as it is unintuitive... Maybe this is enough for your calculations. Maybe using the pivot tables afterwards might help you then. ;-)

2014-06-25 16:04:31 +0200 commented answer Which of HTML, JPEG, PDF and XML is best for importing data into a Calc spreadsheet?

@MC is the ASCII a CSV file? (so values separated with comma) If so choose this. This can imported by Calc best. Did you tried the XML variant (as described above)? Well it is mostly a try-and-error game... :-(

2014-04-17 03:24:55 +0200 commented answer [Feature Request] Impress: Make watermark an configurable option

I haven't worked on Impress for ages, but I guess this works in Impress same as in MS Powerpoint (I have to use it at work): simply edit the master page to display an image on every page. This is at least a workaround for your solution. At my company we do work with version numbers that way (when reaching final state, removing the version number out of the "footer" of the master)

2014-04-16 13:07:05 +0200 answered a question Wie installiere ich Version 4 auf Mac OS X?

Dateien (Programm und übersetzte grafische Darstellung) runterladen, Das Programm starten (*.dmg) und in den "Programme" (oder "applications") Ordner "rüberziehen" (per drag-and-drop) andere .dmg starten, doppelklick auf das Symbol für die deutsche Übersetzung.

Die zwei dmgs auswerfen.

Installation funktioniert genauso wie bei vielen anderen Mac OS X Programmen auch.

2014-04-16 11:30:19 +0200 answered a question HOw do I import files from Libreoffice in Xp into Windows 7?

What files do you want to import?

"Content files" (so e.g. Calc sheets) or configuration files?

The first has to be transfered to the new computer e.g. using a USB stick or as @isa4u using any cloud solution. The configuration files do mostly work the same way, but they are a bit "hidden" (and depend on your operating system). Ask here again if you meant the config files.
