2015-09-22 09:47:24 +0200 answered a question Is there any function that can number table-rows in Writer?

It basically amounts to writing a formula and copying it down all the cells. You can easily do that. Pl visit the link given here:

After long time, discovered the secret. Ofcourse I used LibreOffice 5.0.1. But looks like it should not matter. To copy & paste formula in LibreOffice Table, please follow this:

*1. Put the cursor in the cell containing the formula. Go to menu bar Table->Select->Cell).

*2. Then press Ctrl+C

3. Then select the target cell or group of cells, and press Ctrl+V.

You can also create a keyboard short cut for selecting the Cell and not its content. To do so, follow the instructions below:

  1. Open your document. Go to Tools->Customize. You shall get the "Customize" Dialog Box.
  2. Select the "Keyboard" tab, which should be the second tab in the top portion of the Dialog Box
  3. Choose your desired short cut keys (especially those which are not assigned)
  4. I, for example chose Alt+Shift+0 (Zero) key combination
  5. Having chosen, select the radio button modify to the right of it.
  6. Now come to the second portion of the Dialog Box i.e. "Functions"
  7. Select "Table" entry in the first column which is labelled "Category"
  8. Then, choose "Cell" entry in the second column which is labelled "Function"
  9. Now that's done. You should get "Alt+Shift+0" in the third column labelled "Keys"
  10. Press "OK" and exit the dialog box.
  11. Open a table, and put the cursor in a cell. (in any cell, empty or filled. Of course, I assume you have entered your formula in that cell)
  12. Press now "Alt+Shift+0" keys together
  13. And you shall see the entire cell selected
  14. Now Press Ctrl+C to copy the cell (but not its contents)
  15. Press Ctl+V in the desired cell or group of cells, your formula should now be copied, all at once.

The formula would be copied in the target cell(s). Hurra!!! Long live LibreOffice.

OK, it may be working under MS Windows. I could not make it work under GNU/Linux. I use Ubuntu 10.04, and LO 3.3.2

The Table formula in the LO is great, and so is interlinking figures from different tables. However, the stopper is that when you want to copy formula from one cell to another cell, it does not work. So, currently, you have to write the same formula, say summing each row at the end of the rows, or summing columns at the end of each of the columns, again and again. Or go to the formula bar and do copy paste there for each of the individual cells. Custom formula copy paste, like in Calc would be a great feature to work with tables, and enhance is utility multifold.

2012-03-12 04:37:12 +0200 asked a question Improve digital signature feature in libreoffice

The current digital signature feature in libre office seems to have limitations for full functionality in respect of digital signatures. Office documents typically need several signatures, say the gentleman who drafted, the gentleman who proofread, the guy who accepted, and the guy who finally okayed. Basically, a document requires multiple signatures. This provision is currently not there in libre office. We need a system of signing in "APPEND" mode as well if the digital signature has to be made more effective and widely acceptable.

Secondly, often the print out of the digitally document need visual features to tell the reader that the document was electronically signed by Mr. X at such date and time. Adobe does it nicely, but it has only one fixed image set to do so. Similar feature with custom images by the author is required, again with provision for multiple signatures. This would greatly enhance the visual appeal of the document and its authenticity. MS Word 2010 has already implemented such a system,and they call it "signature lines", and one could add oe or more signature lines to a document.

This is a very important feature and should be looked at with some seriousness.

2012-03-12 04:23:37 +0200 asked a question PDF made from a digitally signed document does not show up the Digital Signature in the PDF Reader

When we export a digitally signed document in libreoffice, and export to pdf, it exports as plain and simple document, the digitally signed property of the document does not pass to the pdf. this means that you need to again sign the pdf document separately. Could the libreoffice team do something about it?
