    A-ha! That does get me most of the way there, thanks. One small niggle remains: although the import preview correctly shows the GBP symbol that's in my CSV, the imported spreadsheet renders currency...
  5. Switching from OpenOffice to LibreOffice Calc - with difficulty

    At the moment I prefer to use OpenOffice Calc since it basically works as I expect (speaking as an ex-Excel user); but I'd like to migrate to LibreOffice since it's still being actively supported,...

    It isn't perfect, but I agree - there's nothing else around that's quite as good. It's always my default image viewer application on every PC I set up. I paid for a licence because, well, he deserves...
