2013-10-01 19:59:11 +0200 marked best answer Why has the profile directory location changed since LibreOffice 3.5?

Many workarounds when debugging and troubleshooting suggest removing the profile directory to reset all parameters of the application. In this answer there is mention of LibreOffice 3.5.0 now using ~/.config/libreoffice instead of ~/.libreoffice.

Why did this change? Has this changed for all OSs or only GNU/Linux?

2013-10-01 19:57:05 +0200 marked best answer What features absolutely require Java ?

I prefer not to install a Java runtime environment (JRE) in some environments where LibreOffice is to be instaled.

What exact features are guaranteed not to work if a Java runtime environment is not installed ?

Are such features targetted for reimplementation without such dependency on a JRE ?

2013-10-01 19:55:53 +0200 marked best answer Are there plans for a Solaris version of LibreOffice?

OpenOffice.org still offers a Solaris version. Are there any plans to produce this for LibreOffice?

Either way, why?

2013-10-01 19:55:35 +0200 marked best answer How can questions be edited ?

Many questions lack proper punctuation or need some grammar corrections to be clear.

Is it possible to have editor rights to fix such problems ? I don't see a karma level for this.

2013-10-01 19:51:56 +0200 marked best answer How can I post comments to questions and answers ?

I only see a field for answering a question, but nothing for commenting, despite the mention of a "commenting tool". how can I comment questions & answers ?

2013-10-01 19:29:21 +0200 marked best answer How can I format a single cell to include spaces or hyphens?

I am entering serial numbers in a Calc spreadsheet. I'd like to be able to enter the raw data while making it easy to read it in the intended format as presented on the boxes.

Here's an example of what I enter:

A9A9A9A9A9A9A9A9A9A9A9A9

I'd like to format it as:

A9A9-A9A9-A9A9-A9A9-A9A9-A9A9

Using "@" in cell formatting only seems to allow using text of a cell for formatting, not reformat the same cell.

Short of breaking my serial #s in different cells and putting them together again in a new cell =CONCATENATE(C6,"-",D6,"-",E6,"-",F6,"-",G6), is there a shorter/more effective way of doing this?

2013-05-07 18:14:31 +0200 marked best answer Is it possible to embed fonts in a Writer/Impress/Calc document ?

I use mostly Gnu/Linux LibreOffice versions but I often send documents to Windows and Mac users. Most of my documents use the Liberation fonts by default which are not installed on Windows or Mac systems.

Is there a way to embed them in my Writer/Impress/Calc documents ?
