2013-06-09 11:08:11 +0200 answered a question how to make continuous merged text document
  1. Take a mature LibreOffice version (I have 3.6.5/WinXP, 4.0.3 still seems buggy)
  2. Copy the two lines you have created and paste them repeatedly until the end of the (first) page.
  3. From the last line on the page, remove the "Next record" field (works better with View > Field names" switched ON), as at the and of a page, LibreOffice by default moves to the next record in the database. So removing this command prevents losing a record.
  4. With Mail Merge wizard choose "Save merged document > Save as single document"

In the end you should have something like

=== TOP OF PAGE ===

<database.firstfield> <database.secondfield> <database.lastfield><nextrecord:database>

<database.firstfield> <database.secondfield> <database.lastfield><nextrecord:database>

[...]

<database.firstfield> <database.secondfield> <database.lastfield><nextrecord:database>

<database.firstfield> <database.secondfield> <database.lastfield>

2012-04-24 12:43:36 +0200 asked a question How to print a booklet?

I want to print a booklet: several pages per sheet, e.g. 2, 4, 6 or 8; plus duplex or back side printing. What options does LibreOffice offer?

2012-03-01 17:58:51 +0200 asked a question Why is version 3.5.0 "recommended" on the Download page? It has poor (almost beta) quality.

Don't get me wrong: I don't want to rant. I just want to know why LibreOffice traits its users as fools. This is not a good policy IMHO. Release 3.5.0 still has so many bugs that it should not be recommended without explanation for normal users. It's ok to recommend it to Early Adopters, but Joe Average should be offered 3.4.5 or 3.3.4.
