reveal codes ?

Submitted by smallhagrid on February 19, 2011 - 3:46pm

I have read in several places that LO has implemented a reveal codes feature, similarly to 'WordPerfect' - but also that nobody can seem to find it.

Can anyone here definitely verify the presence or absence of this well-loved feature ?
(I suspect that it is the one feature which may garner more new users in a single lump than any other one...)

Thank you !


Spaces in launch path

Submitted by Grano on February 15, 2011 - 12:34pm

I used to launch OpenOffice Portable from my Win XP desktop. This does now work with LibreOffice Portable any more: an error message complaining on spaces in launch path is displayed (C:\Documents and Settings\username\Desktop\...)

Does anybody happen to know what might be the reason of such a change in behaviour? Is it a PortableApps or a LibreOffice issue?

LibreOffice Portable Edition Will Not Install

Submitted by hwfa on February 11, 2011 - 9:56am

Win XP Pro SP3

I downloaded LibreOffice Portable v 3.3 and tried to install it on my USB drive along with several other Portable Apps. I got "Please close all instances of Libre OpenOffice PE and then click OK. The portable app can not be updated while it is running". But it is *not* running. It isn't even installed; this is the first time I've downloaded it.

Thanks, you are providing many good features, either in the form of EXTENSIONS.

Please provide OCR(optical-character-recognition) feature, which can recognize COLUMNS, paragraphs, etc.from the scanned images/docs.

LO s-LO-w install, painfully

Submitted by DustWin on February 8, 2011 - 10:48am

On Win XP Pro 3GHz 2GB Ram, decent computer. BUT is LO really missing the 's' infront and 'w' at the end? so far nothing else running but install and now IE to write this, 1 hour 40 mins just to install and still have about 25% more to install to complete. s-LO-w s-LO-w s-LO-w! OOo still seems open enough to me, and talk about LO running s-LO-w portably, dont think I will be making the switch. Terribly s-LO-w. Has anyone at portable apps asked Oracle if 3.3 could be made portable? right now LO = s-LO-w and not worth using being like 15% freer/open then OOo.
