have you tried to repair the broken dependencies? And did you uninstall it correctly? The error most likely is a result of an uncomplete install / unistall so I recommend to see if there are any broken or missing dependencies and fix those, then do an upgrade to the new version you want. In case you don't want to use the CLI, you use a graphical interface ...

I assume that you upgraded manually, using the installation file from LibreOffice. But you should wait until LibreOffice 5.1 is available in the LibreOffice Fresh PPA. This usually does not take a very long time after a new LibreOffice version release. When you do it this way, integration with the Ubuntu Unity menu bar will work fine. To add the ...

Why don't you use the autocorrect option! It converts every (C) in all my figure caption to the copyright symbol. It can replace anything with anything you tell it to do so. You can make some rules such as replace %alpha with alpha symbol just like this: and voila!

Old but relevant. I would suggest the use of autocorrect option. Here's how:

It's an old post but I think it might still be relevant. There's another simple way to achieve this by making use of the otherwise annoying autocorrect option. Here's how you can do that:

According to a couple of sources, LibreOffice's theme support is controlled by the SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN variable (which can be gtk, gtk3, qt and gen). You can force usage of GTK3 by: SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk3 soffice You might need GTK > 3.10, and apparently there are some show-stopping bugs that are only fixed in GTK 3.18.

Yes Microsoft Word can open LibreOffice Writer documents in the odt format, unless it's a very old version your school has. You can also open Microsoft Word (doc, docx) files in LibreOffice Writer.

It's simple. First download German Dictionary from extensions.libreoffice.org. And then open your LibreOffice Writer and go to Tools -> Extension Manager: Then click on Add and select your downloaded German Dictionary. Thats all. Viel Erfolg.

Maybe libreoffice-l10n-de, but I'm unsure whether this is just the language of the app itself, and not its dictionaries. I've just peeked in my personal install-fresh-ubuntu-desktop.sh script and I can see that I include a few more packages than you mentioned (I also install for a more languages, but you can ignore that). I don't know if this will help ...

If you require something that you can run locally, I'd recommend WPS Office. It seems to handle complex layouts reasonably well.

For the former issue: Launch LibreOffice with the method of your choice. Use the Keyboard combination ShiftCtrlJ to turn off full screen mode so that the menu bar appears. For the latter issue: CtrlF10 Turns off non-printing characters. You can also do this from the menu by unchecking View-> Non printing characters. This should resolve the dots in your ...

I solved this for my system by removing the Calibri font, installing Carlito, which is "metric-compatible with Calibri" and is packaged with "a mapping entry to fontconfig (local.conf)," refreshing my font cache, and restarting LibreOffice: $ rm ~/.fonts/microsoft/CALIBRI* $ sudo apt install fonts-crosextra-carlito $ fc-cache Here's a before and after ...

There are two types of kerning out there. The old style involves pairs of letters while the new style, GPOS kerning, supports pairing groups of letters. The Linux Libertine font project (Wikipedia's font of choice) discusses kerning: Nearly any good font contains kerning information, but how much time and effort the designer had spent on this feature ...

If the format is .docx, you could use an unzipping program to extract only the XML files, then view the XML files with a text editor or browser. See also http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14834270/security-of-unzipping-user-submitted-files.

Save the attachment to your Google Drive (1 scan then). Open it in Google Docs (another scan). Google has one of the BEST malware/viri engines. To be really totally safe, then open the file on a Chromebook (another scan) IMHO... I avoid MS products all I can, Libre Office is OK, but Google Docks "rocks" ... pun intended! And you don't have the hastle ...

If you think it's suspect, then it probably is. Other than that, I use an isolated virtual machine for such things. Virtualbox works well.

The only safe way to handle a document you suspect to be infected with malware is to delete it.

By default LibreOffice is pretty much locked down. If you see Tools>Options>Libreoffice>Security you will find that only macros from trusted sources are allowed to run and untrusted are disable (default setting). You can also manage Trusted Certificates. Link are not allowed to be clicked with mouse cursor. If you want to open a link you have to press Ctrl ...

LibreOffice should be fine to open it with. Most malware in MS Office docs is designed to exploit the macro and Visual Basic integration in Office. The safest way to handle such documents though, is to just not open them. If you did not expressly use some copy machine which e-mails you documents in MS Office formats, then it's almost certainly going to be ...

Entries can be moved by drag and drop. Every entry can be tagged. Tags are freely ...

Saving as .docx in LibreOffice might work, but I often find problems. Instead, there are two more reliable methods on Linux: In LibreOffice, make changes and then save as PDF. People using windows will be able to view the changes with 100% accuracy but will not be able to make their own changes. Use MS Office online. It's free.

Yes, and no. Yes, LibreOffice and MS Office both support the docx format. However, LibreOffice and MS Office are not necessarily using the same fonts, so documents may look different as a result. LibreOffice also doesn't necessarily handle all the things that may be embedded in the document, nor any macros, so opening in LO and then saving back out, may ...

Yes, it is possible : DOCX is handled by LibreOffice. Meanwhile, some formatting functions are not compatible between both "offices". Sometimes, some colors applied will not being seen in each other.

The regular (upright) style of Cambria is in the TrueType Collection (.ttc) format, allowing it to contain several styles in one file (in this case, Cambria and Cambria Math).

Yet another solution would be to follow the instructions in this post https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=83&t=61183 It is about upgrading to a newer HSQL engine version instead of the one bundled with OpenOffice Base. New HSQL engine provides support for ROWNUM(), ROW_NUMBER() OVER, ANSI SQL constructs etc.

If you have more time for trouble shooting and want to save as much of your personal stuff as you can, then instead of deleting the whole /home/*USERNAME*/.config/libreoffice folder, try to rename just the /home/*USERNAME*/.config/libreoffice/*VERSION#*/user/config/ folder. It worked for me, but I still have to test to see what all is now missing or ...
