It may be possible to do this by writing your own macro. To do this, write an event listener for a particular keystroke, for example % like in Vi. According to xray, the controller of the LO Math component supports XUserInputInterception, which looks like it allows interception of keystrokes. Although it looks possible, it looks like a difficult project, ...

Ok, I got an answer. You need to just find and replace (under Edit): http:.*|file:.* with: =HYPERLINK("&","Some text here") Then check the box for: "regular expression" and finally, "replace all". "Some text here" could be another "&" if you just want to keep the visible text the same, but turn it into a link. (Thanks to pierre-yves samyn)

If the only reason you want a JRE is for LibreOffice, just install openjdk-9-jre. The other 'main' JRE is Oracle's JRE, which contains proprietary code and is not in the repos. You'd need to manually download and install it. It's probably easier to not bother with it.

This approach maybe changes the font only once, it will get back to previous settings when you open a new calc. The optimal way is as follows: open a new calc file, change the font as upper way. save this file as a template: File->template->manage set your template as default Then, your calc font will change to what you want every time when you create a ...

I just did a clean re-install of 16.04, and the problem doesn't occur anymore. I battled with Libreoffice when it ran on 16.04, upgraded from 15.10 by do-release-upgrade -d. It seems the upgrade wasn't that clean... Whether it's Impaled Impala 8.10 or another release, IMHO one should rather do a backup of all important directories and then a clean ...

The problem is that the resulting sheet name contains prohibited characters. In OpenOffice.Calc, you can only use letters, numbers, spaces, and the underline character in the sheet name. (OO Calc FAQ) The sheet name you've built contains slashes /, yielding an invalid sheet name.

You can try to install office in linux, but the results are not good. The best solution for me is use Excel online. If you have a outlook account, you can try it. The tools and the buttons are very similar to MS excel. The only problem is that is a online app, so if you have not internet connection, you can not edit or view your files.

You can't. MS Office only runs on Windows. You could try running it on WINE, but no guarantees. WINE stands for Wine Is Not an Emulator It is a compatibility layer that allows running Win32 apps on Linux. However, it is FAR from perfect. Many applications will will simply crash during install or on luanch. You can install wine with: sudo apt-get ...

Annoying but true. Changed in LibreOffice > 5.0. Go to: -> slide -> Page Slide Properties and then adjust. Just took me half an hour to find this menu item. It sucks because official documentation is not updated and finding specific items in menus and submenus can take you a long time.

The easiest way to solve this issue is to save the LibreOffice Impress file in its native ODP extension, on your Linux system. After you do that, access your Windows system, download and install the LibreOffice suite for Windows 7, then run it in order to open your ODP file on Windows 7. An alternative to this - in case you don't need to edit the ...

You can try exporting the presentation to a PDF, where you can simply click through each slide. File -> Export to PDF This is what I would do, and it really is the only solution that doesn't involve a ton of re-editing. If you have time, you can also make sure that Powerpoint has the same fonts as Impress, that would solve some issues. Powerpoint and ...

The easiest way to manipulate a HSQLDB database by means of scripts would be to use the tool sqltool provided in the package.

ZIP files are archives, not text files. They contain other files that are compressed so as to save space. A ZIP file can be thought of as a compressed folder. I'm going to bet that what's inside the ZIP is what you want to open with LibreOffice. To open the ZIP, simply browse to it in a file manager and double-click it. In the window that pops up, click the ...

The memory that is listed in your table is very likely the virtual memory of the soffice.bin. If you run top, you can see the virtual memory use (VIRT) and the resident set size (RSS) of system processes. The resident set size is the non-swapped physical memory used by each process, minus a small amount of overhead. So it will give you a decent idea of ...
