Added Mac Catalina to the subject in hopes of attracting comment from other users of that system.

I already have "Use LibreOffice dialogs" unchecked, so unfortunately that setting must not apply to the Print dialog. Ex

2021-02-09 23:42:49 +0200 marked best answer Print using system dialog

I'm running MacOS Catalina and LibreOffice 7.

When I try to print a document, I'm shown a custom print dialog box instead of the standard one used by most MacOS apps. That means there's no option to create a PDF, which what I'm trying to do.

How do I get a standard print dialog in LibreOffice? Or if that's not possible, is there some other way to print to PDF?

2020-11-17 19:09:42 +0200 marked best answer Calc, clone formatting to a group of cells

In Calc, I want to clone formatting to lots of cells. I know about double-clicking the icon, but then I have to individually click on hundreds of cells to clone the formatting to each one. Is there a way I can select a group of cells and clone the formatting to all of them at once, instead of having to do it one at a time?

2020-10-01 20:09:34 +0200 marked best answer How do you use the default template when importing a .tsv?

In LibreOffice Calc (Mac, 7.0.0.3), I've created my own default template. If I create a new spreadsheet, it uses my default template as a base, so I know that much is working. But if I open a .tsv, it doesn't use my default template. (For example, the converted .tsv uses the Liberation Sans font instead of the font in my default template.)

How do I make LibreOffice respect my default template when converting a .tsv?

2020-08-26 23:28:08 +0200 marked best answer Is there a command to open a file in Calc?

On a Mac, I can use an AppleScript to open a file in Excel. LibreOffice doesn't seem to have an AppleScript dictionary. Is there some other way (maybe from the command line?) that I can tell LibreOffice to open a file, using Calc in particular? (The file is tab-delimited text, so if left to its own devices, LibreOffice would open it in Writer, which would not suit my needs.)
