    assign [class=".*libreoffice-impress.*"] 8
 +
    workspace 8 output eDP1

Change the outputs to what you actually use. Check output of xrandr for this.

When starting the presentation, you can move the notes/slides-window to the main display, and the slideshow will be visible underneath. Make the slideshow fullscreen. -- 15:02, 8 September 2016‎ Armandg

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)

Unreadable text in menus and interface

This might be a bug and should then probably be filed somewhere else, but is related to the section on troubleshooting. My issue was this: Most, but not all, text in the menus and in the user interface was in an unreadable font - in English but with wrong symbols. Changing the system fonts as recommended in various places did not help. It turned out I had the language pack libreoffice-am (Amharic) installed by mistake.

language aids improvement

since mythes, hyphen and hunspell package are based on not much up-to-date language database (at least some of them e.g. Italian ones) I suggest to use LO extension which provides the same features but up-to-date e.g. for Italian language the plio.org association provides its own extension (http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center/italian-dictionary-thesaurus-hyphenation-patterns) for this reason (IMHO) we should at least quote this possibility, this way of enabling language aids. --nTia89 (talk) 07:55, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

LibreOffice Impress presentation won't show slideshow and notes on correctly on multidisplay setup

Not sure if this is because of a bug or something, but if the slideshow won't show on your additional display in a multimonitor setup, you can add this to your i3 config file:

   assign [class=".*libreoffice-impress.*"] 8
   workspace 8 output eDP1
   assign [class="Soffice"] 9
   workspace 9 output HDMI1

Change the outputs to what you actually use. Check output of xrandr for this. When starting the presentation, you can move the notes/slides-window to the main display, and the slideshow will be visible underneath. Make the slideshow fullscreen. -- 15:02, 8 September 2016‎ Armandg
