Re: Merge with LibreOffice?

2016-08-03 Thread Howard Morris (aka Col Boogie)
Hi all,
From what I can tell, the 2 groups can (and are?) borrowing from each 
other. I prefer its free and open concept. However, seeing some other recent 
emails and some concerns of my own, I think we can make it easier for new 
developers by doing the following:
  1.. Copying all source code into a zip file, to get all the code just copy 
that one file. 
  2.. Make a zip file containing descriptions of all source code. It also needs 
overview modules how certain modules work together. 
  3.. Make a zip file containing instructions how to do complies, put 
everything together, check out modules, etc. 
  4.. For Open Office Site, add module that lets people check out/in modules 
and tell others what they are working on. Of course, there has to be a 
companion transactions that allows people to see what is going on. There also 
needs some kind of security to keep people from trashing the site.
If it were me, I’d break down the code into independent modules. For Writer, 
that may mean don’t load the math, table, picture (frame), etc. module until 
there is a need for it.

Re: [PROPOSAL][API][WINDOWS]Whether Common Spelling API can be implemented

2016-05-30 Thread Howard Morris (aka Col Boogie)
I tend to agree, but wish to add a few comments.
I went to Source Forge and noticed there were a lot a spell checkers out there, 
including some that want to be an API/
There is no need to compete with them, but cooperation would be a good idea.
If anyone wishes to, please look at them and see if any might be a good 
replacement to what we have.
Being able to access the source code night also be a boon.
The following should be part of out requirements:
  1.. Able to adjust to multiple languages 
  2.. Able to add individual files for words the users want to add to the 
dictionary. My thinking if multiple people are using the same computer, each 
person should have their own override file (in user/AppData/Local/?). 
  3.. Give reasonable suggestions for misspelled words. This may include 
Keyboard recognition for typo errors. (Like a Russian Keyboard).

I have examined some of the materials available for the CSAPI.

Here are my initial observations:

1. The CSAPI is closely-held by Microsoft.  It is evidently not part of their 
Open Specifications set.

2. Apparently a license agreement is required in order to have the necessary 
materials and also learn of any maintenance/change to the API over time.

3. The implementation is via a DLL that can be registered on Microsoft Windows 
and thereby relied upon by Microsoft Office products that will use the CSAPI to 
access a spell-checker for a given language.

CONCLUSION

To provide implementations of such DLLs at Apache OpenOffice, these would 
require a development offered as open source under the Apache License. This 
would, by the way, probably impair the use of spelling lexicons that are 
provided under incompatible licenses and probably unwelcome at Microsoft.

It seems to me that the closely-held nature of the CSAPI and requirement for 
license agreements is completely out of scope for Apache OpenOffice and not 
compatible with policies of the Apache Software Foundation.  This is simply a 
road we cannot go down.  

I suggest that we not go any farther investigating this proposal unless those 
encumbrances disappear.

- Dennis

PS: A third party could engage with Microsoft and supply a CSAPI-accepting 
implementation.  That might employ the same tools that AOO employs for 
processing supplied lexicons.  The third party would have to navigate the 
licenses on such lexicons as well and ensure that this does not introduce any 
licensing condition that is unacceptable to Microsoft.  The independent third 
party also might not be so opposed to empowering the use of CSAPI-delivered 
spelling checkers by Microsoft products as I imagine the contributors of 
lexicons to AOO might be.

That would be nice.

Hi,
I am not sure, but please check the ranges used in that box for the spread 
sheet.  You may have used sum(D2:Z2) and the data has extended beyond Z2. While 
I do not know of a maximum number of things that can be added, etc., You may 
also try sum of the first so many things and use that value as part of another 
sum.

PS. It would be easier for us if you sent a copy of the spreadsheet and tell us 
which cell you are getting erroneous results. 


errors in writer (formula)

2015-11-28 Thread Howard Morris (aka Col Boogie)
Gang,
I have been using the formula in writer lately. For ‘cdot’, a command to 
put a dot between two symbols to indicate multiplication, the dot is not 
showing up in the document. The other multiplication binary operator ‘times’ 
that puts an x between two symbols to indicate multiplication is working fine. 
I have used this before and think it is a new error
Another minor problem, I am not sure if it is new, is for the plus (+) and 
minus (-) operators there appears to be  a (half?) space after the operator, 
but nor space before the operator. Yes I can force the (half) space using the 
(`) or (~) character. Another words “1 + 2” should be the default, not “1+ 2”.

when we release micro versions (at the moment this means, 4.1.x) we 
agreed to not change anthing on the baseline for supported platforms and 
their versions. Then IMHO we shouldn't also not change the base version 
for the needed Java.

But for newer versions like 4.2.x then, yes, we should improve the code 
to support the most recent version of platforms and Java.

Hi Patricia,
   My fonts are set just as yours are but your odt file looks normal when I
open it, not at all like your bmp. When I click on the Pi in the formula
editor it is centered both vertically and horizontally in the dotted box.
That was all on Windows 7. I also looked at a similar formula in Linux and
had no problem. The fonts there are Liberation Serif, Liberation Sans and
DejaVu Sans Mono.  If no one has a suggestion here in the next several
hours, I'll open a thread on the user forum to see if anyone there has an
idea.

I did not see anywhere in profile to change spell check options.

no errors found.

New release - problems

2015-11-16 Thread Howard Morris (aka Col Boogie)
I went to open a new document.
I saw the note there was new version available, so I downloaded it.

First thing I noticed was the spell check is still not working, let’s fix it 
before people stop using Writer.

Next thing I noticed was a small change to the formula generator (math calc?) 
in Writer.
The symbol for product seems to have changed. It should look like the large 
capital letter pi, P.
Also the ‘from’ and ‘to’ blocks should be centered above and below the P.
This is relatively minor, but thought you should know.

Sorry I was unclear. I meant that you should rename (or delete) the user
folder that contains the profile. This will trigger the creation of a new
folder. OpenOffice has to be shut down to rename the folder.

Deleting the profile fixed the
spell check problem (thank you).
Did not fix Pi for me though.
I use Word to convert file to PDF and it fixed that problem.
For the product symbol, I wonder if it is taken from a Windows font that has 
changed with windows 10.
I checked, when I use %PI it shoes Pi correctly
I noticed that the extra blank space before and after formulas was removed 
(thank you).
However, the formulas are offset below the line level, making it look odd.

no, that's not true. AND and OR have the same priority, just as * and / 
(division). (* and / have a higher priority than + and -.)

Expressions have to be evaluated from left to right with respect to 
priority and parenthesis.

"and" and "or" are binary operators. Therfore your examples can be 
written as "A or B" where "B = (C and D)". If you write your example as
"A or (C and D)" then it is the same and everyone sees immediatly, how 
it is evaluated.

In both cases, the result is TRUE, because
"TRUE or anything" is TRUE, just as "TRUE or (anything)".

"(A or B) and C" is totally different.

On http://www.p-roocks.de/truthtable2.php you can create "tables of 
truth" (Wahrheitstabellen) for logical expressions like "A or B and C" 
and more complex ones.

It is as it is!

Re: Layout question relating to screen size/open office writer

2015-09-26 Thread Howard Morris (aka Col Boogie)
I’m not sure what this discussion is about. It seems to concern the layout of a 
wide screen.
You may try using what I have done in 
http://howard-cary-morris.host-ed.me/html_doc2.html
It is set up to switch to two columns for a wide screen.
The first pages on the left, the last pages on the right (not sure I like that, 
this is an early cut).

You can look at all the code and copy it if you wish.

Re: Need help on bookmark writter

2015-03-14 Thread Howard Morris (aka Col Boogie)
Sorry all, I have been out of town.
From what I read on some of the requests, is that you want for different 
users to enter the document at different points.  I am assuming you are 
converting the document to html. The way to do that is to give an ‘id’ to every 
entry point. So George Goble world use demo.html#George_Goble and Betty Grable 
would use demo.html#Betty_Grable, etc. I have my own javascript that can add a 
table of contents to an html document. I am also working on an upgrade of the 
Open Office outputting an html file which I can try putting in that code when I 
detect a table of contents in the original document.

Re: html code generated from Open Office

2015-01-06 Thread Howard Morris (aka Col Boogie)
I’d like to thank everyone for their suggestions.
I think I will try Dennis Hamilton’s suggestions first.
I will continue my conversion approach for a while just to get a better 
understanding of what is going on.

When I get into the Open Office code, I will also try to look at the copy paste 
from a browser screen problem.
I have done it myself a number of times and have seen more problems than 
reported.

Open Office has trouble when I input an html file I have written, not 
unexpected.
I think JavaScript is especially worrisome, maybe we could convert them to 
macros.
I expect CSS is also a problem.

I can adapt to most any computer language, but I will avoid APL (it’s code uses 
a lot of the Greek alphabet).

If I ever fix this task, there is a copy paste from Calc to Writer I’d like to 
address.
Currently, the copy paste ends up as an image in Writer, I’d like to see it 
changed to a table.
The functions (macro anyone?) would get lost, but they are lost anyway now.

I also remember seeing emails about trouble with Open Office Math.
From using it, it looks like LaTex code.
Editing Open Office Writer in Word and saving it in .odt format, the LaTex code 
gets changed.
It would be nice if we added an insert a “Greek letter” as a Math options panel.
If anyone wants to redo it, I know how to write math expressions using native 
html.
Basically I use an (inline) table to hold all the symbols.
I do realize that currently Open Office cannot have a table in the middle of a 
paragraph.
However, I think we can sneak  in a construct.

Re: html code generated from Open Office

2015-01-06 Thread Howard Morris (aka Col Boogie)
Thank you again,
Brief comment. I know about MathML. Last time I tried it I ran into a 
browser that didn’t support it. Hmm, let the user get a better browser, they 
are cheap enough. In this case no need for full Unicode %beta becomes beta; in 
html. My comment on Greek letters is that the prompts do not tell about Greek 
letters. I had to use Google to find out about %beta in open office. I suspect 
there are those who will not be able to figure it out.

Fw: Query!

2014-12-05 Thread Howard Morris (aka Col Boogie)
At school, we use something called Lan Teacher.
It allows me to see any of the student terminals (and take them over if I wish).
It also has a show students teacher's screen to all the student terminals in 
use.
It might be complicated to set that up.

​You would need to have a webserver for that. AOO webcast only generate the
htmls/css. You can upload to a internal webserver and share it with the
network.​



 2- can we make plugins for open office or amend anything in open office ?

​Yes AOO has an API that can be used with JAVA, Javascript, Python, and a
Basic language. Look our wiki for more information about it.​




 3-similarly can we add any component of OPEN OFFICE ?

​Yes AOO has wizards with eclipse to generate compoennts, more info about
this on our DevGuide.​




 If these things are possible what should I be needed , Java ? and ?
 That's all, waiting for your reply thank you.

Re: about vertical text direction

2014-11-20 Thread Howard Morris (aka Col Boogie)
Here is something that will effectively do what you want. Insert a table; make 
one of the columns just one character wide; start typing or inserting special 
characters. You may do this for the next columns also in case one column is not 
enough. You can make the leftmost and rightmost columns larger to adjust 
centering, etc. You may also put more normal characters in the outer two 
columns. You can use borders to enclose whatever inside a box.

Hi all:

I want to insert a text box which can show vertical text in writter. But It 
seems like that there is no options for vertical direction text in the combo 
box in frame’s setting dilaog, just likes the screen shot below. (this is a 
Libre Office's screenshot but I think that this is same to OpenOffice)
