2020-10-01 13:53:01 +0100 marked best answer Vector format from Inkscape

I have now tried saving in all formats in Inkscape. None of them can be read in LO Draw.

How do I convert vector drawings in Inkscape into a vector format that LO can read?

(Vote up if you want me to upload an example).

LO version: 5.2.6.2 Inkscape: 0.91

2017-02-20 13:52:10 +0100 asked a question Manual update of date field

https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/questi... explains very well the difference between fixed and automatic.

Is it possible to update a fixed field?

So far I have used the workaround: Convert to automatic. Convert to fixed.

But is there a 'update fixed field' that I am not aware of?

2016-12-07 02:56:12 +0100 asked a question Use ISO dates all over

I try to avoid using localized date formats to avoid misunderstanding, so I would like Libreoffice to use ISO format for dates where ever possible.

Most crucial to me is the value field in LibreCalc. In the cells, I can adjust with Format Cells, but how do I tell LibreCalc that I also want the value in the field to be in ISO-format (e.g. so I can press F2 and edit an ISO formatted date)?

2015-11-25 13:45:23 +0100 commented answer Re-assign Ctrl-+ Ctrl-- as zoom-in/zoom-out shortcut globally

I upgraded to 5.0.3.2. It still does not work. I can set the keys, but nothing happens after I press OK, and press CTRL-+ or CTRL--. I had expected the Zoom percentage in the lower right corner to change, just like it does if I do CTRL-scrollwheel.

2015-11-24 16:14:17 +0100 asked a question URL to barcode extension

http://www.barcode-generator.org/ makes it possible to convert URLs like https:// prosa.dk a Code-128 barcode.

Is there an extension for LibreOffice where I can mark a section, press the magic key and have a Code-128 barcode with the text in?

2015-11-23 16:04:23 +0100 asked a question Mail merge times out

I have used mail merge to send 400 emails. During the sending the connection timed out.

The error message is a horrible Python error and not a nice pop-up explaining the error.

I pressed continue, but this did not cause the sending to continue: It seems the SMTP-object does not handle timeouts very well.

Is there a way I can tell the SMTP-object that it should retry thrice, if sending fails?

2015-11-16 18:40:33 +0100 asked a question Mail merge cannot email

When sending a mail merge by email I get:

<class 'smtplib.SMTPServerDisconnected'>: Connection unexpectedly closed, traceback follows

I had expected the emails to be sent.
