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 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 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 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
