Hi :)
Ahh, that sounds good.  :)

The problem is almost certainly this end.  It's extremely unlikely anyone
else is having the same issue.

This place only allows people to use Internet Explorer (although i haven't
tried "Portable Apps" or "Win Pen Pack" but if i did they would probably
accuse me of "hacking").  Websites are frequently blatantly malformed and
for some sites it sometimes allows some pages but not others.  The fault is
almost certainly this end, either the stupid dumb machine i'm attempting to
use or the Lan and proxy-server system.  They even disable right-click and
it was ages before i remembered the Ctrl-click to at least "Open in a new

The only good thing here is that they have installed OpenOffice properly so
that it can be used.  Years ago this place had downloaded the OOo installer
but not installed it.  So every-time anyone wanted to open a document they
had to run through the whole install process.  The non-IT people in charge
blamed all that on OOo, of course - and then paid a fortune to get MS
Office, which they then ditched a couple of years later because it couldn't
handle files from other places and client's files were all messed up on
other place's systems.  Now they have OpenOffice properly installed their
files work pretty well.

Tom :)

The machine i am on right now is locked down in some very odd ways so i
can't see the "Uk OwnCube public service" to see whether they are using
official LibreOffice documentation or work on doing their own versions

Those links are to shared images of the Help file and the Format>Page
dialog that I posted! They aren't anything to do with OwnCube documentation.
What error message do you get when trying to access them? They should be
public, which is what the link says...
