Changing Color mode to Grayscale changes the image to grayscale, but I want it in color obviously!

Oh, I get it. It's not (Emoji One) Color, but Emoji (One Color).

2020-10-19 02:16:19 +0200 ha accettato una risposta Emojis in Writer

I'm using LibreOffice 5.4.2.2 on a Mac and I'd like to insert nice-looking Emojis in my documents.

For some, like 👎🏾, this works pretty well. Two options:
(1) Menu bar > Input options > Show Emoji & Symbols > pick one & double-click to insert
(2) Open Emojipedia in Chrome, pick one & copy-paste. This works, even though LibreOffice seems to get confused sometimes about the hand being brown rather than yellow.

For others, like 🤷, it works so-so: I managed to get a shrugging woman, but often LibreOffice would convert her to something like ⍰⍰♀, and she ended up yellow rather than black.

⚠️ did not work properly. I want a yellow triangle, but LibreOffice insists on changing it into a less-attractive black-and-white character.

Is there a way to reliably insert emojis so they actually look like emojis?

I know I could insert my emojis as little PNGs but this sounds like a hassle: their size wouldn't follow the font size, they easily end up in the wrong position, and they mess with my line spacing.

Thanks for any help!

When I underline words that include subscript characters, the underline gets chopped up:

choppy underline

Is there a way to get one straight underline for the whole word?

Interesting. My favorite font is Lato -- it should qualify as OpenType, right? Underlines are still interrupted though,

2018-12-07 16:50:23 +0200 ha accettato una risposta How to format multiple choice questions

When I'm writing exams and asking multiple choice questions with check boxes, I format the answer options as a bulleted list, and I change the bullets to the "ballot box" character, ☐.

How can I check one of these ballot boxes when I prepare answer sheets?

I can't just change the bullet point character to "ballot box with X," ☒: If I do, all the answers will be checked.

Is there a better way to format multiple choice questions?

How do I stop autocorrect from changing the first letter of these abbreviations to uppercase at the beginning of a sentence?

Cool, thanks! I just installed the current version in the hope that you meant 6.1.3 rather than 6.3, but you did mean 6.
