Unable to Choose java Installation

Submitted by ukriegel on December 5, 2011 - 4:38am

I installed the latest LibreOfficePortable Version 3.4.4 and JPortable1.6.29 on a W7x64 computer.
Starting Scalc I got a lot of warnings that Java is needed to run LibreOffice properly.
Via Extras/Options/Java I tried to choose my portable java installation, but the corresponding button has no effect, no browser window opens to select an installation,...

How to solve that problem.

LibreOffice Portable - slow startup compared to regular LO

Submitted by Aikiki on November 27, 2011 - 5:45am

Title pretty much says it all.

The installed LO takes about 1-2 seconds to start up, while LO Portable takes about 8 seconds (warm start) and 13 seconds (cold start). Of course, from the same drive.

Now, I did not install the regular LO with everything, so maybe it's not a fair comparison. But still, it seems like too big of a difference.

PDF Options

"For more control over the content and quality of the resulting PDF, use File → Export as PDF. The PDF Options dialog box opens."

The PDF file is created, but the options dialog box never appears. Something I need to enable/disable to get at the security choices?

Import pdf creates ASCII garble

Submitted by demdren on October 22, 2011 - 6:59pm

I just downloaded the latest LibreOfficePortable (version 3.4.3). When I attempt to open a pdf image, for example in Draw, it's converted into ASCII garble and opened in Write. Does anyone else have this issue?

Note: There is nothing wrong with the pdf. It's an old pdf image I've used in documents before, and it opens just fine in all pdf viewers. It has pdf version 1.4. Unfortunately there's no option to attach files here, but take my word for it.
