I have a PDF and need to edit to URL pointed to by

1) embedded HyperLinks
2) Twitter icon with embedded Twitter tweet

Can I do this with LibreOffice?

If not, is there a free tool?

Is it time for me to get Adobe?

What's the cheapest way?

Thanks

I am creating a PDF from a Word doc using LibreOffice.

In the doc I need two types of links:
1) highlight text that points to a Web URL
2) highlight text that opens a pop-up of a few sentences of text, on hover

I assume #1 will translate fine from Word Hyperlink.

For #2, when I use Hyperlink > Screen Tip feature, I can successfully create a pop-up. BUT, I am required to use a hyperlink, which I do not want to do there.

Is there any way to have the pop-up without have a hyperlink? I do not want the hyperlink.

AND when I use LibreOffice the pop-up is lost.

So I have no way to create a pop-up in a PDF.

Can you tell me?


Thanks.

I am using LibreOffice 5.0 and trying to do something simple, but cannot figure it out. I am using the Draw Function. I've put 2 rectangles on the page and now want to connect them with a line. One L.O. help posting says to click on the glue point icon, but doesn't say where this icon is or what it looks like. I can't find it. Another post says to use the connector tool bar, but I see no such tool bar.

Need help.

Hi
 
One of my friend is going to give a E-Book for his students. He thought to give the E-Book as a PDF. I heard from Microsoft that DRM will give a good protection in this case. My friend needs to protect his E-Book from getting printed, coping or sharing the file.
 
My question is how safe is the Office 2016 DRM Protection? Are there better solutions?
 
Any answer is welcome.

I have a column of about 1700 names of people in no particular order.  The formats of
them seem to be:
   1) john doe
   2) john c doe
   3) ohn c. doe
   4) john calvin doe

I would like them to be:
   1) john <space><space>doe
   2) john<space>c.<space>doe
   3) john<space>c.<space>doe
   4) john<space>calvin<space>doe

I'm trying to make this so it can be put into columns (first name), (middle name), and (last name) and then sorted.by ln, fn, mi to find the people.  It was an OLD set of burial books for a nearby cemetery that were handwritten and wearing out.  I'm trying to make them electronic or just print new ones.

I am in the process of posting my book on PDF, at first for free, for public distribution.

I have used LibreOffice to password protect PDF's.

Is there any value or risk to doing this?

It seems someone could copy to clipboard anyway. So, pw protection seems of limited value.

Is there a risk that someone might not be able to open the file?

That'd be my real worry.

Thanks.

I plan to write a 5.5" x 8.5" book with a perfect binding. I've been told by the printer not to waste my time using Word, due to frequent font incompatibilities, and instead use PDF. So please advise me how to go forward.

I have:
Word 2011 (Mac)
LibreOffice
Foxit Reader

What shall I use to generate the document? I need this before I write the book so I can estimate how many words in a page.

What font do I use? I prefer to be slightly larger than than used typically. I am not trying to save pages and if anything am trying to  make the book long enough for a perfect binding page count minimum. Also, as someone who needs reading glasses, wold prefer if elderly people cam read it easily.

I am not talking about making it like the Readers Digest with huge text is, but large enough that most people can read it.

So, what tool do I use? And how do I set the settings for a 5.5" x 8.5" book?

I also hope to create an index with an automated tool.

Possible?

Thanks

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit system running Open Office 4.1.  System will not print two sheets within a workbook.  When printer button is pressed and/or file, print, the system states "There are no pages to be printed.  Please check your document for ranges relevant to printing."

There is content within the sheet.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Experts,

We have an application which has many forms , and we have few fields which has the RTF icon and what ever we enter it should take the input.
But we want to enable track change functionality what MS words has on RTF fields. Internally we are using "TinyMCE" which has some features of track change, and not supported in all browsers.

Looking forward for some suggestion to make this happen.

Regards,
Sloba

Hi.

I have some PDF files to which I want to add some annotations (by adding some TextBox with arrows like I can do on Microsoft Word, for example). So the idea is to open these PDFs, add this TextBoxes with arrows, and save again as a PDF.

I have read that this can be done by opening PDFs on LibreOffice Writer, but when I try to do this, the PDF is open on LibreOffice Draw, and I can't found the option for doing this on there.

I have also read about using AdobeAcrobat, but I don't have this software and have no experience with it, and also I'm looking for a free solution.

My computer is Windows 7 based.

Thank you.

The information isbeing entered into an OpenOffice spreadsheet.  A problem I'm having is some residence have two separate first and last names.  If I input these into the spreadsheet separately, when print mailing labels I'll get two labels.  How can I input them into the sheet so this doesn't happen?  Forward thinking, how would I input them so that when it comes time to import into a database I'm able to include both names into one database entry?  Thanks in advance!

I need a tool that's easy to use and which I can use to define the specs for my website. This will be both front-end and back-end.

I want free tools for freelancers to easily download. I need a tool that's easy and quick to learn, but is easy to describe a feature on the UI and its association with the back end function, yet to be written...

Any ideas?

I have about 1100 PowerPoint Presentations that I need to change the design from screen presentation 4:3 to screen presentation 16:9. I have been unable to find an enumeration of the variable that does this. I really don't want to do the presentations one at a time manually. Does anyone know the variable and enumeration that would allow me to programmatically change the Design > Page Setup  setting in a presentation? Alternatively, a suggestion of a better way would be appreciated.

I would also appreciate suggestions on doing this in Apache OpenOffice or LibreOffice.
