2016-08-05 10:53:37 +0100 asked a question Full screen

Hi there. Does anybody else have a problem with full screen mode in LO 5.2? My computer freezes and then crashes when I change a document in Writer into full screen mode. This happened with Win 10 and happens with Win 10 Anniversary edition.

Many thanks to all.

@karolus What does your answer '...[x]upper/lower case' mean? I've just did a try with a simple text editor. There, searches for ss give me only ss results and searches for ß give me only ß results.

Hi there

When I do a search in Writer for words with the German consonant ß, it shows me also words with ss. How can I avoid this? I want only words containing the ß.

Many thanks for your help.

Thanks for reply. I've tried workaround but without success. Same result as before. I guess I have to wait for bug fix.

2016-03-12 23:34:43 +0100 asked a question Hide Whitespace

The function 'Hide Whitespace' is disabled (grey instead of black colour in drop-down) in all documents that I open in LibreOffice's Writer 5.1.1.3. What do I miss? Many thanks for your help.

2016-03-04 20:33:42 +0100 marked best answer Change of Page Numbering in Writer when line numbering is on

Hi.

Where does the cursor have to be in order to change the page numbering of a 10-page document from 1-10 to 40-49 when line numbering is on? I “know” how to do this but I always end up with one extra page (before the first page) resulting in a total of 11 pages instead of 10. I was able to do this task twice without any extra pages and proper numbering but it adds one page again when I repeat the same task from scratch or edit the page range in the successful document.

Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks.

PS: I'm using LibreOffice 4.3.2.2

2016-02-19 17:16:05 +0100 marked best answer Insert File in Writer Document

I have a standard Writer file of 10 pages. I now would like to insert another Writer file at page 6. How can I do this best as the document to be inserted is fitted with header, footer and formatted with automatic line counting at the left margin when filled with text? I'm using LO 4.2.1.1.

Many thanks for your help.

2016-02-19 14:54:30 +0100 marked best answer Page by Page

Is it possible to scroll through a Writer document page by page if entire page view mode is set? When pressing the Page Down key, it displays half of this page and half of the next page. I've tried to create a shortcut in Tools\Customize but wasn't able to find the correct Function in the Navigate category. I'm using LO 4.2.1.1. Many thank for your help.

I highlight the text in Comments (Writer 4.1.04), change font or font size and save/close document. But when I reopen document, the initial font, font size is back. Can somebody please tell me if this is a bug or if I'm doing something wrong?

2015-11-02 03:19:41 +0100 marked best answer English/German Quotation Marks

I use Writer to write documents in English and German. In Tools\AutoCorrectOptions I changed the quotation marks for the German (Switzerland) language setting from “aaa” to «aaa». But now Writer applies this setting also when the language is set to English. Do I always have to set the quotation mark options before typing or is it possible to set the type of quotation marks for each language individually?

2015-11-02 02:49:51 +0100 marked best answer Change of Quotation Mark

Is there a way to change German (Switzerland) quotation marks from „ “ to « »? The French language setting has the desired quotation mark but adds a space before and after the question mark.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi. Thanks for your reply. Could you please explain to me why this behaviour only occurs with one LO file including any other file format? I have two much larger LO files where this behaviour doesn't occour - everything runs smoothly there. Many thanks.

2015-08-30 20:40:34 +0100 asked a question Noisy computer when large LO 5 Writer file is open

Hi. My computer is working really hard after opening a large Writer document which is a pure text document. A loud noise and the fan are kicking in for a few seconds, stop for a few seconds, kick in for a few seconds, stop … and so on until I close the document. What amazes me is that this behaviour doesn't occur when opening other Writer files and wasn't happening in LO 4.x (same computer, etc). The file in question has approx. 750KB, 500 pages, 150,000 words, 1,100,000 characters. Please could someone tell me what the problem is because it is impossible to focus on work under the circumstances mention above. Many thanks.

2015-08-22 04:30:55 +0100 asked a question Word / Character count in LO5

Hi. The word and character count in the task bar doesn't work properly in Writer. When I open a document it counts approx. 1/10 of the words/characters and then stops, adds then approx. 5,000 after a keystroke until it reaches the correct amount. The correct amount is only displayed after clicking Tools/Word count. This doesn't apply to small documents. My document has approx. 140,000 words and just over 1,000,000 characters.

[edit: added lo5 tag]
