What’s the base unit that Libreoffice uses for text in stylesheets? It doesn’t seem to be points. Should I design in millimeters? inches, so that the math stays true?
When I create a style sheet, the values that save don’t match what I entered, and I can’t figure out why.
When I correct these values in the stylesheet directly, then load and resave, they’ve reverted to the ‘not-quite the same’ value.
<style:paragraph-properties fo:margin-left=“0.99pt” (typed in 1pt)
fo:margin-right=“2.01pt” (typed in 2pt)
fo:margin-top=“4pt” (typed in 3pt)
fo:margin-bottom=“4.99pt” (typed in 4pt)
fo:line-height=“11.31pt” (typed in 11.3pt)
fo:text-indent=“3pt” (typed in 3pt)
I’m counting on being able to do math in a LOCalc sheet to create a well-formed stylesheet and have a column with no footnotes end at the same edge that a column with footnotes ends. That is, that ‘register-true’ should results in the text flowing to the BOTTOM of the page (not the bottom of the page minus 3/4 a row of text), so that bottom aligned footnotes (which aren’t 'register true because they are 20% smaller) optically end on the same row. I already use this method for Calc->Indesign. But the random return values are real… mathematically accurate designs have random factor that results in gaps between columns with footnotes and no footnotes.
LO 6.0.5 MacOSX 10.13 if it matters.
