Thanks, I'll check it out.

2017-03-28 18:51:33 +0200 asked a question find and replace non-breaking hyphen

I have a document that I exported from a PDF file to an RTF and then edited it in LibreOffice Writer. Adobe Acrobat Pro exported a bunch of non-breaking hyphens that I want to replace with regular hyphens. I have been unable to find a way to do this other than the brute force method of searching by eye to find each one and replacing it by hand.

If I copy a non-breaking hyphen into a text editor I see that the character is 'AD' but I've tried all kind of ways to search for that and it doesn't find it. I've tried copying the non-breaking hyphen and pasting it into the Find box in the Find & Replace dialog. I've tried inserting it into the Find & Replace dialog using Ctrl+Shift+-. I've tried the regular expression \U00AD. Nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

I'm using LibreOffice Writer version 5.2.3.3 on Windows 7.

2017-03-23 20:03:29 +0200 commented answer calc disable conversion of '(C)' into copyright symbol

I already looked at the AutoCorrect Options; there is nothing in there that says to change (C) to ©. Do I need to add a new rule that says convert (C) to (C)?

I just tried that and it works. It just seems that there should be a more obvious way to disable that change.

Thanks for the answer.

I am using LibreOffice version Version: 5.2.3.3

2017-03-23 17:01:57 +0200 asked a question calc disable conversion of '(C)' into copyright symbol

Every time I try to input the text "(C)" it gets converted to the copyright symbol. I want the text to remain "(C)" and not get converted to the copyright symbol.

I've looked through the AutoCorrect Options in the Tools menu but there is no (C) to © option that can be disabled there. Perhaps there is an option someplace else but I can't find it. So how do I fix this problem.

Thanks for you help and the example database. I've spent the last couple of days just experimenting with macros. I'll get there eventually and will let people know what I came up with.

Thanks, I've downloaded a copy. It will take me some time to get through it.

2017-02-09 01:22:57 +0200 commented answer base auto populate new record

Ratslinger, I have been pointing to macros in the Events tab. I think that I will try MRI. EasyTrieve, I've looked at the IDL Reference but I find the information to be somewhat cryptic. I probably need to spend more time digging.

2017-02-08 18:11:00 +0200 commented answer base auto populate new record

I've been playing with X-ray. I didn't try MRI because it requires python but I might give it a try.

Is there a way to determine what event triggered the macro? I haven't been able to figure out how to do this if it is possible. Currently I have a macro for each of the before and after events that I have used to determine the event.

2017-02-08 02:14:03 +0200 commented answer base auto populate new record

I appreciate your help. One problem that I am having is the documentation isn't very good. Is there someplace that I can go to find the properties and methods for Event and Form objects?

2017-02-07 02:34:00 +0200 asked a question base auto populate new record

I would like to be able to clone some of the text data fields from the last record when I go to a new record. It looks like the only way to do this is with a macro but I can't figure out how to trigger the macro. Could one of the record action or record change events be used to trigger a macro to do this?

I have seen some examples that use a button in the form (Investment_Tracking.odb and Quality_Assurance.odb) but I would like it to happen when I click certain buttons in the Form Navigator toolbar. Specifically, I would like it to run my macro when either the New Record button is clicked or when the Next Record button is clicked when I am at the last record.
