I’m finishing my Masters, and I’m using Linux Mint. So I’m using also Libre Office, that comes with that operational system. Overall, I have no complains about it, but there just one thing that is a trouble: losing one specific formatting. As you may know, academic works demand very specific formatting, and if we don’t follow it, we lose score.
Well, the specific trouble I’ve been experiencing is that always that I put the formatting in citations of more than 3 lines, with 4 cm of spacing from the left margin, and spacing of 1.0 (simple) between lines (the standard in this kind of work is 1.5), and then I close the file and open it again, I lose just the formatting of 1.0 between lines and it goes to 1.5, as it’s applied in the whole of the work except in these parts of long citations. Just that.
Yes, I’m using “.doc” as I constantly need to share my files to other people, my professors and reviewer, who are probably using Microsoft Word… I know that the ideal thing would be using a original format of file designed for Libre Office or Open Office, but I think I have no option here as I need to send these files to them…
Could you please give me any suggestion about what to do?
