Holding the alt key down and using the arrow keys moves things
incrementally. This is common in other software too.

Which version of Windows do you have?
I constantly got that "permission" issue with Vista and upgraded to
Win7. Now all my Windows systems run Win10. I have not had any
"permission" issues since upgrading to Win7, except for trying to
install older packages that were made during Win XP days and not
updated for the newer OSs.
As for the "space bar" issue, I get around this by either using two
methods. 1 - make sure the image/object is anchored to the page and
not a character. 2 - define the size of the space by changing the
font size. If you need to move the object a quarter of the space bar
with, make that "space" size the size you need by entering the
specific quarter font size in the font size "toolbox" window, i.e.
normal is 12, then place 3.0 in the font size "box". I usually type in
the sizes got larger than the 96 point. I just tried typing in the 3
point size for my default font and it works fine. In theory you can
type in 3.5 or 6.3.
As for the cost of MS Office, I dumped MS Office back in the 2002/2003
version days. Once OpenOffice read/wrote .doc files, I stopped using
MS for most things. Once LibreOffice came out, I dumped OpenOffice.
I went to open source packages due to their "cost". Since there were
a number of packages I needed that I could not find for Windows, I
looked at Linux. Linux had what I needed. I have been using
Ubuntu-based Linux as my default system[s] since Feb. 2010, but had at
least one Linux system running since 2005 or 2006.

I have had Libre Office before, but not this newest version. For the

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
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
