    OpenOffice Calc Defaults

    How do you set/change the default formatting in OpenOffice Calc a/d/or Writer?

    Re: OpenOffice Calc Defaults

    I don't know what you want to change, Chuck, but Open Office is a bit flaky when it comes to alleged default settings. You can set a bunch of stuff in Tools, Options as shown in the attached. But, although I've set my default data path, the doggone thing always wants to LOAD from the most recent folder used. So, I just tolerate it and go on - after all, it's a freebie. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Doc, you may be right.

    Jerry, that's for sure where the settings are, but they don't seem to hold.

    Once I change them and update the style, it's there for that sheet. But if I exit out and come back in, the settins are back to where they were.

    Very strange.

    Regards,
    Chuck

    If memory serves (and it may not <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> ) default style changes have to be made in a template. To create anew default template see this tutorial http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/for...php?f=71&t=1161 . Have fun (and a good New Year)

    Re: OpenOffice Calc Defaults

    Al:

    I'm just trying to set the simple things you (I) use every time -- fonts, cell/margin widths etc.

    The same question, I suppose, would/will come up with document editing as well.

    Regards,
    Chuck
