[https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35803 https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35803] A bug has been opened with freedesktop.org due to a default spacing difference between LibreOffice and OpenOffice that destroys the ability to re-create documents previously saved with OO while preserving document spacing. (example documents provided in bug report). This effects Libre on Linux as well as Windows (if you run a dual OS shop). Libre somehow has larger font kerning or paragraph leading that causes lines to wrap where they didn't in OO. This results in length documents experiencing page run-ons and destorys automatically generated pagination such as in tables of contents, etc.. This affects people who need to be able to re-create duplicates of original documents such as legal pleading, etc...

In the help I can see that it concerns AUR packages installation but there is no package in the AUR for the development version of libreoffice.

High-contrast icons in LibreOffice

A short time ago I augmented the details on disabling the high-contrast icons (what the article refers to as "Windows 95" or "Windows 98" style icons), since for me, it wasn't enough to just disable the automatic high-constrast detection.

I found this out courtesy of the following entries in the LibreOffice Bugzilla; while I am sure anyone else here could find them just as easily, I wanted to note them here for the information of other contributors:

Finnish spell checking section

I added a section but am not sure if it is the right place for it. What do you think?

If it's only spell checking you could move it as a subsection of LibreOffice#Spell checking and just rename it "Finnish". If it's more than just spell checking, you may leave it there but rename it to LibreOffice#Finnish aids or similar. -- Kynikos (talk) 01:34, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
