[libreoffice-users] pdf


Hi :)

Yes, pdf guarantees the document looks identical on any machine and so far lives
up to that promise for me! HOwever it is difficult to use if you have to
collaborate. I tend to use pdf and then open it with Gimp to make a few changes
and then save and forward it as a gif to keep the size down. Occasionally the
pdf is much smaller than the gif. Pdf does tend to be a very light format even
woth pictures and stuff in it.

Regards from
Tom :)

I often convert with OOo and now with LO to .doc. But I never had this
problems. Please can you show us an example (jpg)?

Please never use .doc, .odt or other formatted files for exchange of
documents. The best standard for this purpose is PDF. Convert your
documents at the end of work with LO to PDF (export to PDF) and send these
files to your clients/ associates/customers.


Have a nice day,
