The major bug I have is applying a "register-true" to an entire document
at a time. I use OL to put together a periodical, with columned text and
many images (which are put in frames and anchored to specific pages).
It is LO not OL, or better LibreOffice.
Believe the best practice is to work within frames anchored to top or bottom
of page and activate register-true. László Németh's Typography toolbar .oxt
extension seems to still work correctly in 5.0.0, suggests using the
Graphite based Libertine G or Biolinum G fonts.
Is the problem related to the fact I am taking older OO files and
attempting to do this?
That probably doesn't help.
I don't want to invest heavily in new projects until I get the bugs
sorted out. I find I am taking older files (in order to create a 2nd
edition of an older manuscript) and redoing every paragraph to get the
document to register true. In 4.3.7, the changes would simply not stay
after I saved the document.
Not sure if details are embedded in ODF as style (and so are persistent and
move with the document), or it is a registry setting and would be held per
document in the user profile. If the later, could explain the issue.
I tried saving in ODT and DOC and DOCX formats, it didn't seem to matter.
Now in 5.0, not only do the changes not save if I go back and register the
paragraphs, but OL crashes every time.
You should work in an ODT for stability in formatting. Using DOC or DOCX
requires filter export of document, and again to import. The round trip can
be very disruptive to stable formatting you're looking for. If LibreOffice
5.0.0 is crashing--that is a bug and needs to be reported in Bugzilla
Also had some issues in 4.3.7 with image frames migrating, also related to
these revisions of older documents.
Is this all known behaviour? Are there still bugs outstanding if I were to
work on new projects and try to register the text?
Don't see a lot of issues reported in BZ, but that could just be that the
"register-true" feature for grid alignment in printed publications is not
widely know. BZ bug tdf#66434
<https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=66434> suggests that
is the case.
Please report any specific bugs you identify. This seems to be an under
appreciated feature of LibreOffice.
