doc2pdf conversion quality issue on Linux installation of Libre 3.5
A) We have installed LibreOffice 3.5 (184.108.40.206-3.5.4 to be precise) from the website
on Linux (GNU coreutils) 6.12. We need this software to perform doc to pdf
file format conversions along with other format conversions supported by libre
(E.g.: doc2html, doc2ps, html2rtf, wp2html etc.). This is going to be used for
a critical project in my division and we need extremely urgent help to answer
this question: doc2pdf conversions on the above Libre version has some issues
such as extra empty pages being introduced, spill over of text onto next page
when there are long headers/footers in every page or dense text. The same issue
is being observed in Windows (3.5.4 ) as well as Linux (3.5) versions. Are
there any options (command-line / GUI) that we can give in the Libre
(Linux/Windows) that could potentially help us with circumventing this issue ?
Please let us know on priority. Also is a more stable version of Libre (where
these bugs have been fixed) going to be released soon… if so how soon and when
can we download the same? A mail from our architects/technologists describing
the issues we are facing is also attached here for your ref (RE: Initial
analysis valuation of LibreOffice tools.msg)
Business Need: We want to to get Libre up and running on PRODUCTION for
critical systems here to replace legacy Windows conversion strategy that is
currently being used (but has some scalability issues), with a Linux based
solution using LibreOffice.
NOTE: I was unable to attach samples of doc files that we had issues with … hence please let me know to which email id I can send it across for your perusal.
