Hello all (from Canada):

I saw this email because i get the emails on the list 

I am a bit unsure here just who is having problems with exporting to
.PDF. I do this all the time but more than that...

Sometimes I am ex porting to .PDF to be sent to a group, not just one or

Some of the recipients have Libre Office installed, others do not and
may be somewhat less computer literate in general.

Also some may be receiving on their employers' computers and do not have
the right ti install anything.

So, when I export to >PDF, I export to a hybrid .PDF which adds the
native Open source code (such as .ODT) into the .PDF as it is exported,
resulting in a hybrid .PDF.


1) For those recipients who do not have Libre Office installed they can
view the file as a normal .PDF, without even knowing that it is a hybrid
.PDF unless I explicitly tell them, complete with explanation, likely in
that same .PDF.

2) For those who do have LIbre Office installed, they can also open the
.PDF directly in Libre Office, and then use it as if it were a native
open document. they can then comment, modify, (unless it is internally
locked) comment, edit etc. and save it as a native .ODT or .ODS or whatever.

I am attaching pone of my favourite templates for use with .ODT which,
over time has proven very useful with many and diverse situations.
internal commentary (which can be deleted when sending out as a mass
email attachment if needed.)

This has a structure intended to favour extensive hyper linking, a
glossary at the end, and a section  for the author's

By using this format, when sending to a list, I more or less half the
bandwidth consumption for the effort, and avoid less than necessary
questions and complaints from some who do not want to be appropriately
aware of basic file formats and what can be done with each.

Best Regards,
