I have had Libre Office before, but not this newest version. For the most part, I like it. There
are some things about it which are better than Open Office, and some things which appear identical
to Open Office.
One of my questions, involves an issue I encountered last night with administrator permissions.
This is strictly a one person computer, and I AM the administrator, and I actually resent it when
my computer tells me that I do not have permission to do anything on my own computer. It once made
me so mad, on a different computer...that I spent hours trying to fix all the permissions, and
ended up having to re-install windows, because I screwed it up so badly. I thought that I had
myself designated as the administrator on this computer...but it seems that I am only listed as
computer user with special permissions. The program would not even let me update it.
My other question is...how can I reset the distance that objects will move when I press the space
bar? I have the same problem with Open office. The space bar moves objects much too far. I want
them to move at the tiniest possible increments for the utmost precision. I have used both MS-Word,
and MS-Publisher for many years, and both these programs gave me this level of precision--but I
currently have no copy of either, and can't afford them, either. I am NOT a Bill Gates fan, in any
way, shape, or form...but I am used to working with word and Publisher, and I know how to make them
do exactly what I want them to do. I know of no open source equivalent for Publisher...but, I wish
I could find one. I also know of no open source program which will even open my old Publisher
files. I wish I could find that, as well.
I am also an avid believer in open source, and I really appreciate the existence of open source
software...so there has to be a way to make this adjustment. I need more precise control over the
spacing and placement of objects that I insert into my documents. Susan Hope Mason
