I want to hand-edit several occurrences of the same text in numerous places in a particular document. I can use Find to locate the text, but it is cumbersome to quickly move to subsequent occurrences of the text I want to change. Is there any shortcut key either set by default or else configurable in some way? Can anyone give any suggestion here? Or should I report a feature request?

Rather than a workaround to just render the equation, I was looking for a way to quickly change the font of all the affected OpenSymbol symbols to a better-behaved font like Liberation Serif.

2017-03-08 12:20:12 +0200 beantwoorde een vraag Remove the sidebar tab selection panel

I suggest you report a bug. I was frustrated by the same problem.

Interestingly, in LO5, you can still have a separate Navigator (hide/show with F5) but the only way to show Styles and Formatting is as part of the new Sidebar. If they had implemented a way for Styles and Formatting to exist separately from the Sidebar, as they did with Navigator, then your old use-case would have still been possible (perhaps only with a change of keystroke needed).

Agree! It's a problem. I checked it with 5.2.5.1. Did you report a bug? Seems like a good idea. But I noticed something interesting: the highlighting also disappears when you show full-screen (slideshow). So maybe it's deliberate for some reason?

Yes, that works, but it's still a bug, right? It means explicitly-stated relative references are being deliberately ignored when figures are cut/pasted between sheets.

2017-01-11 03:42:34 +0200 stelde een vraag Math formatting problem

I am having some problems with poor-quality rendering of rather simple equations with LibreOffice Math.

For example, the equation

1 over {2 %sigma} + 1 over a + 1 over %sigma

renders very badly, with the denominators of the three different fractions not correctly lined up.

There are plenty of other examples like this -- they all stem from the use of Greek symbols used in expressions. This stems from the use of the OpenSymbol font by LibreOffice, which is a poor-quality font that doesn't contain the required 'font metrics' that allow the Greek symbols to be rendered correctly. Additionally, the default settings of LibreOffice have been poorly chosen such that Greek symbols appear in upright font, while other symbols (eg 'a' in the above) appear in italics, by default.

I am looking for a nice workaround that allows me to quickly fix my default LibreOffice installation so that it uses another Math font instead of OpenSymbol for all the greek letters, and renders them in italics instead of roman. Can anyone suggest something?

PS I have some bugs reported around this problem, if you could please add comments/"me too" to those bugs, it would help to get some attention for them: bug 104749, bug 67152, bug 48965

In the case of the Math part of this answer, note that this does not change the font for symbols/Greek letters. There is no easy way to change the font for the symbols that LibreOffice uses, AFAIK. (And this is a problem).

2016-08-03 09:47:42 +0200 reageerde op een vraag How can I properly display standard deviation on a calc chart?

A comment on this: I found it hard to spot where to link actual cell (data range) for error bars. I found that you have to select the series you're interested in, then right-click and select 'format error bars'. Then on the 'Y Error Bars' tab, there is a place to select a cell range for the + and - (or both the same) error bar data ranges. (It is sometimes hard to use the mouse to select specific data series, especially when there are many series on a figure; there should me a mouse way too)

2016-08-03 03:27:23 +0200 stelde een vraag Can I set a chart's 'data ranges' relative to current sheet?

I would like to create a chart that makes use of data on the current sheet, and then copy/paste the chart to another sheet, and have it link immediately to the new sheet instead of the sheet that the chart came from.

I found the LO (5.1.4.2) lets me remove the '$' from the sheet-name for the series name, X-values and Y-values (enter chart->Format->Data Ranges), so I thought this was looking good.

But when I copy/paste the figure into a new sheet, the '$' is back again, and the data ranges all point to the original data on the original sheet again.

This is bug, right? If I write a formula "=thissheet.$A$1" in thissheet and then copy/paste into thatsheet, then the formua in the pasted sheet becomes "=thatsheet.$A$1". When I copy/paste a chart, the same should happen, right? It shouldn't silently add dollar signs...?

That's not the way bibliography tables are constructed using Jabref. Instead, you click buttons in the Jabref window, and it 'drives' LibreOffice and handles the referencing numbers, the bibliography list, etc., from there.

FWIW there is also '%igamma', '%itheta' etc for italics. But this is not helpful for fixing up large existing documents which previously rendered with italics (and non italics is not a good default for lower-case greek letters according to standard publishing practices)

2014-07-08 12:43:42 +0200 beantwoorde een vraag Why doesn't Calc allow me to hide/show rows/columns?

Sometimes if you have 'frozen' your sheet (so that certain rows/columns always remain visible at the top/left of your screen) then the 'Show' function doesn't work correctly. This is a bug. But it can be worked around by turning off 'freeze' (uncheck the option in the menu 'Window->Freeze'). After that you can show/hide as you wish.

Tested/current as of LO 4.0.4.2 (Ubuntu 12.04)

2013-10-01 19:52:57 +0200 koos een beste antwoord Greek letters in math formula have reverted to non-italic

Hi there

In previous versions of LibreOffice/OpenOffice (as of ~Jun 2011) provided a symbol catalog such that when using "%alpha" or "%rho" in a formula yielded an greek letter in italics. This is consistent with the styling used in most high-quality textbooks, Latex, etc and was a good default behaviour.

Now, for some reason, with LO 3.5.4.2 on Ubuntu 12.04, it appears that all math symbols are coming out in non-italics, which LOOKS TERRIBLE.

Because I have a large document that I've previously written, I need a way to change my math symbol catalog so that ALL greek letters are in italics.

Also, I need to change their font from "OpenSymbol" to "Liberation Serif", since the OpenSymbol typeface seems to be lacking some key metrics, since my "%alpha" character lacks correct baseline information, so the format of an equation like "1 over %alpha" looks all wrong.

Any suggestions?

2013-07-14 10:13:16 +0200 reageerde op een antwoord Greek letters in math formula have reverted to non-italic

This *doesn't* work for math symbols entered via the 'symbol macros' eg "%beta". That is because the symbol catalog specifies the font that is used for these catalog symbols. Terrible design fault in my view -- no way to change the font used for Greek symbols in a document en masse, makes for ugly documents. OpenSymbol is hard-wired into LibreOffice, and italic greek letters in OpenSymbol are ugly.

2013-07-14 09:19:36 +0200 beantwoorde een vraag Greek letters in math formula have reverted to non-italic

I found a nice solution for this. On Ubuntu 12.04, I closed all of my LibreOffice windows, and edited the file ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/registrymodifications.xcu. I searched for "Greek" and found the following line:

<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Math/StandardFormat"><prop oor:name="GreekCharStyle" oor:op="fuse"><value>1</value></prop></item>

The <value>1</value> was my edit; originally it showed "0" (non-italic, i.e. roman); I changed it to 1 (italics). You can also use 2 if you want italics for lower-case and non-italics for uppercase Greek letters (but I'm not sure that works as stated -- please test). After restarting LibreOffice, the desired behaviour will occur!

See here for the bug and original code commits relating to the above: https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=113276

Two issues:

  1. there is no quick way to force re-formatting of all your equations in the document, although you might be able to figure something out from https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/images/3/37/MG40-MathGuide.pdf#page=46
  2. there is still no easy way to quickly modify the Symbol Catalog to use a different font instead of OpenSymbol. This is still needed because the OpenSymbol font lacks correct font metrics, and results in poorly-formatted equations.
