Actual Question: I’ve seen a lot of discussion about using an alpha channel, but most is in reference to Draw. I’m dealing with something different. I need to write up info sheets that will have text info. I’m using Calc because it’s easy to change row and column sizes to give me a grid that will work for me to be able to write my info in columns or row. It’s also easy to edit the text or add more quickly and easily without having to worry about alignment or font style or size. If I could export a PNG image of a spreadsheet with an alpha background instead of a white background, that’d give me exactly what I need.
Rationale and Need: I’m open to other ways to do this. Basically, when I’m doing a project, I need form 6-10 of these info sheets and I want to produce them quickly and easily, then export them without having to use a program (like, maybe, GIMP) to change the white to alpha. Once I do each info sheet, it has to be imported into other software for use in my project. Since this is something I’ll use a lot, I need a process that’s quick and easy to do. I’m up for using other formats in LO to do this or to find other ways to do it, as long as it’s simple to produce a formatted sheet (again, the spreadsheet grid does that easily for me) and I’m not using multiple programs to produce this sheet.
