2016-05-21 21:21:25 +0200 asked a question Can't Create Chart in Calc

Issues

If I try to insert a chart ...

  1. If I click on the blank space*, the chart frame will display but the chart will not be displayed.
  2. If I click outside the frame, neither the chart frame nor the chart will be displayed; the blank space will still be displayed.
  3. If I click inside the frame but not on the blank space, I will just be clicking into one of the cells as if the frame weren't even there; the blank space will still be displayed.

This occurs whether I click the "Insert Chart" icon or go to Insert > Chart; this also occurs whether I highlight the relevant columns beforehand or enter the columns manually afterward.

*This space only appears when I make a chart; it is not intentional. I don't know why it appears; it's never done this before as far as I can remember.

What do you not understand, specifically?

2015-09-12 23:38:04 +0200 asked a question Mail Merge > Test Settings crashes LO

Under Options > LibreOffice Writer > Mail Merge E-Mail, I can put in my IMAP and SMTP settings just fine, but as soon as I click Test Settings, the whole programme freezes on me and I have to force-close it.

And I'm pretty sure the settings themselves are accurate because I got the IMAP and SMTP settings straight from Google, and I double-checked, too.

Also, I'm not sure if it matters (probably does), but I didn't use my Google password; rather, I used an application-specific password.

In any case, just in case I got something wrong in the settings, here are some screenshots:

You're one digit off: the SMTP port is 465, not 464. :)

Well, delightful. I can see the site didn't even post it the way it showed in the preview. -_-

2015-04-25 23:09:21 +0200 asked a question Are data units binary or decimal?

Do data units in, say, the settings menu adhere to the IEC 60027-2 standard?

The IEC 60027-2 standard defines kilo-, mega-, etc. to be purely SI prefixes, and designates a series of prefixes to be used with the binary values.

So,

            Decimal                                              Binary
(kB) kilobyte     = 103 B                       (KiB) Kibibyte   = 210 B
(MB) Megabyte = 106 B                       (MiB) Mebibyte = 220 B
(GB) Gigabyte   = 109 B                       (GiB) Gibibyte   = 230 B
(TB) Terabyte    = 1012 B                      (TiB) Tebibyte   = 240 B

More information on IEC 60027-2 can be found here.

Cool, thanks.

Overall, though, for the purposes of row heights/column widths in spreadsheets, they're typically close enough. nods But I do see your point. Thank you for telling me that; I did not know that.

In any case, that really sucks. I wish it could be done with relative units. Do you think there's any chance of it being added as a feature sometime in the future?

Haha, "here in the future". That's awesome. High five. ^_^/*\^_^

And okay, I'll have to look into it more, but that would make sense since you said you have to wait an extra day typically.

Regarding LibreOffice versions, extensions, and templates. Basically all official stuff. I'm not talking about the programme itself.

@petermau: It would be nice if you would just try to answer the question instead of questioning why I need to ask a question. If I ask it, then it means I must have a reason. Please don't use this as a medium through which to attack my decision to ask a question.

Regarding your question, on the other hand, I'd like to use them as ruler measurements, not font measurements; nor did I ever mention anything about font sizes. The nature of these other units as absolute units is exactly the problem: because they are absolute, they are not consistent with certain elements other than font; pixels though are relative units, and thus anything a distance of 5px will be 5px and a proportional distance across any user's screen (since it is relative to screen resolution, not absolute physical lengths), while 2 cm may easily be any distance depending on the screen size/type/etc.

Therefore, pixels are superior units for my needs, which are measuring column & row widths in spreadsheets. You could even test this out on your own, if you want: x points for column width is not the same as x points for row height; on the other hand, x pixels is exactly the same on both the column width and row height. To reiterate, it's exactly the non-absolute, but relative, nature of the pixel unit that benefits me; to use anything else is frankly a pain.

I do appreciate both of your responding. Thank you. :)

Hi.

Is it possible to change the measurement units in LibreOffice, or at the VERY least in Calc, to pixels (px)? It seems the only options are "centimetre", "millimetre", "inch", "pica", and "point".
