I have opened and re-saved a number of excel files originally created under XP without a problem. When saving your LibreOffice Calc file (to open again under MS Office Excel) are you making sure that you have saved the file in the correct format? In the Save As dialogue box, you can select the file type from a drop down list. You may just need to check ...

With each installation of Libreoffice on any of the Distros I have installed for myself or others I have found that the thesaurus always works after I have installed the English dictionaries for Apache OpenOffice-2013.07.31 rather than any extension from LibreOffice. This makes all the above solutions unnecessary. This OpenOffice dictionary extension is a ...

I would suggest Libreoffice draw not writer as it is better with shapes, but anyway: First click View -> Toolbars -> Drawing. Then click on the flowcharts button, on the drawing tool bar. (For ease of use, drag the 3 lines at the bottom to make it into a permanent window. Hovering over each item will show you what it does. Click on one, and ...

To detect the duplicates in a worksheet there is a solution here: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/microsoft-office/how-to-find-duplicates-in-excel/ The solution provided in that link is for MS Excel, but I tested it in a LibreOffice Calc sheet and it works as well. See screenshot:

This a way you can hide and then remove duplicate rows (or 'records') in Libreoffice Calc Go to the worksheet that has the duplicate entries, and select 'Data' > 'Filter' > 'Standard Filter' (it seems to automatically select the data in the sheet that it will filter, you may want to do this manually beforehand). Then in the box that pops up, select the ...

You haven't been very specific in the details, so I will presume that your file contains only the data that you have mentioned, and the formatting is consistent. I will also presume that your file is white-space delimited. Hence, the input file looks something like this. 1°2'3" 4°5'6" 2°3'4" 5°6'7" or this 1.23 4.56 2.34 5.67 In that case, then run ...

Pressing Esc when the recovery notice shows up gives you the option to cancel the recovery. Then click cancel. This worked for me. See https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+question/167956 answer #2. Don't know about answer #6. In the past this didn't work for me, so I didn't try it this time.

It is rather remarkable. However I would not export with watermark sign !!! Create a text in Draw, you decide whatever it says, be it Draft, Samply, Copyright etc and your layout and textcolour etc. Save it as .odg than use an online converter to make it a .png file. This file you can use !! You just create a new Style in Libreoffice Writer and use the png ...

In both LibreOffice and OpenOffice, there's a security option "Ctrl-click required to follow hyperlinks". If this option is enabled (AFAIK it's enabled by default), a single left click isn't sufficient to open the hyperlink: You can open the option dialogue using menu "Tools" -> "Options" -> "LibreOffice" -> "Security" -> "Security options and Warnings" -> ...

The open document format has changed quite much over the years and the document that you are trying to open might be written in an older format. Another page here explains the same problem. I am sorry but I do not know how to fix this.

Regardless of spell checking tool (libreoffice uses hunspell) the new words are added in standard.dic by libreoffice. In 14.04 this file is in $HOME/.config/libreoffice/4/user/wordbook/standard.dic I am guessing that in 12.04 since libreoffice was at version 3.x so the file might be in $HOME/.config/libreoffice/3/user/wordbook/standard.dic Or if not there ...

I would start by closing LibreOffice. That has caused issues for me in the past with unoconv but it has been hard to predict. It's easiest to just let unoconv launch its own processing server. If you think you've done that but you're seeing the same error, run killall soffice.bin and try again. In terms of retaining the same name, it does that by default. ...

Go to System Settings -> Language Support. Esperanto must be the first language in the list. Second isn't good enough for Firefox and LibreOffice. Edit: An alternative way to control the display language of an application is to use a simple wrapper.

You should choose Calc if: the list layout isn't important for you assuming you want to print the list out, you don't care a lot about the print layout; You should choose Writer if: you're quite ...

It might be worthwhile to look at what PDF forms are and do. PDF forms do primarily not make a difference between text, number, date etc. It is all text fields, and if you want to be specific, you have to provide the means to do so. However, the conversion of drop downs selectors should be better, because there is the combobox field type which is a drop ...

There is a plugin to do this - you should be able to install the plugin with sudo apt-get install evolution-plugins* You then need to enable and configure under 'Edit' > 'Plugins': You can set this to the command libreoffice --writer which will launch libreoffice --writer, but you could leave it as the default gedit. Once set up, you simply need to open ...
