I recently upgraded my OS from Kubuntu 8.04 with OpenOffice 2.4 to
Kubuntu 12.04 with LibreOffice.
Unfortunately, when I open a file in LibreOffice that was created in
OpenOffice, the text on one page now flows over to a second page.
My laptop has LibreOffice, and I compared all line spacing, margin
settings. etc. to the same document on another desktop that still has
OpenOffice 2.4 installed.All settings look identical. In fact, I am
comparing the same document using a flash drive to go between systems.
Has anyone had a similar problem?How do I resolve this without
reformatting the entire document?
I'll be happy to send screen shots, if that will help.
I had this problem with the OOo 3.0 with LO 3.3. The problem then was
the default fonts. LO installs some fonts and uses them for the defaults.
Are the fonts you are using in the ".fonts" hidden folder? I have heard
than some systems had OOo and LO fonts installed in other folders than
the ".fonts" folder, including the ".libreoffice/3/user/fonts" folder.
I keep that folder empty and only use the font files in the".fonts"
folder. OOo may have a similar package defined folder where it places
some of the fonts, like LO does. There seems to be some differences in
some fonts that "seem" to have the same name.
I use Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10 with the MATE desktop environment instead
of the KDE desktop environment, but I have that option installed if I
want to open Ubuntu using the KDE d.e..
KDE's System Settings - "Font Management" utility will group your fonts
into System and Personal fonts. My used document fonts tend to alway be
listed on the Personal font list and not the System font list. There
are a lot of fonts in the System font list I never used and many were
installed by Ubuntu 12.04 that were not installed with 10.04. Then
things change again with 12.10.
ALSO, even if the font that is displayed on the "font drop down" menu
for the document, does not mean you actually have that font installed in
the laptop. If you create a document with Al Heavenly for the text,
then place it on a flash drive and open it with a different laptop, the
font name of "Al Heavenly" willshow in the document even though the
second laptop does not have that font installed. It shows the font that
is tagged with the text and does not have than font "grayed-out" or
other indicator that you do not have it installed. So have you checked
your font folder[s] to make sure the font is installed in bothsystems?
I tend toinstall a set of fonts on all my systems so I do not have this
problem. When you have over 100,000 [14 GB] of font files on your
system, with a few hundred installed at any one time, it can be a
problem to make sure you have the needed fonts installed for a document,
if you keep changing which fonts are installed on your system.
