2017-02-07 21:22:12 +0200 asked a question Need automatic ordering for bookmarks and links to them

Using Writer. My application is an email productivity tool that allows me an index into various message blocks that I copy and paste into emails. These are for a volunteer position I hold as the Treasurer of a non-profit.

There are many people that need some of the same information, but each email is custom fit for that person's situation. So one member may need mid-level corporate membership payment info with link and benefits to becoming a member, while an individual will need the individual payment link, but same benefit information. So I have payment links under different indexes, and the benefit information under a separate index. Now say they were set up as links 1,2 and 3. (I actually have over 40 blocks, each with own index and bookmark.) And I decide to now to include an unlimited payment link, and need to place that after index 1 (mid-level corporate membership level
payment link). As it works now, I have to renumber the link names for the following links (2 and 3) so I have room to put the new link in as #2, renumber the the links themselves, because they are numbered in the bookmarks listing in the same order and numbering as the index and blocks are, then create the new link, create a new bookmark, and finally attach the new bookmark to that link. I would hope that when I create a new index, the system could do the reordering for me. I'm sure it's a simple solution, but right now I'm confounded as to how hard I have made this, and could really use a direction steer as to if LibreOffice writer can do this easier, or if I should be using Calc, or if I should go to a different technology altogether. Thanks!

2017-01-05 17:08:02 +0200 asked a question I replaced an icon in a toolbar I didn't intend to replace - how 2 fix?

Is there a way to reset the icons in just one toolbar? I accidentally overwrote one. I don't know what it was before, so I have no way of knowing (or do I?) what the original toolbar icon was for that function. It's the Insert Table function for the Insert Toolbar.

I was surprised that I had to add Hyperlink to the Insert Toolbar. I was changing it's icon to the standard one, which I had to create because I didn't have the patience to walk through all the provided icons looking for it. Who knows? It could be in listed.

Thanks!

2016-08-02 05:22:43 +0200 answered a question Calc won't respond to optimal column width double click

If the column has wrap text enabled, then it won't respond to an Optimal Width command no matter how you try to invoke it. Select the column, Format/Text/Wrap Text, (which is a toggle between "wrapped text" and "unwrapped text".) If the contents of the column change to linear, and the next column to the right has filled cells, then the selected column will truncate its contents on the right hand border and be followed by a red triangle pointing to the right. In this condition (unwrapped), the optimal width command will operate.

2016-08-02 04:56:17 +0200 asked a question Calc won't respond to optimal column width double click

https://help.libreoffice.org/Calc/Opt... Double-click right column separator in column headers doesn't work for me. I can size it manually, but double clicking doesn't do anything. Further if I use Format/Column/Optimal Width, I get a 0.0 or 0.1 as default, but it only budges it 0.0 or 0.1. It will not resize it to the max size of the longest cell and then add 0.1 inches. Instead it will widen all cells by 0.1 inches.
