In Word, select the character and press "alt-x"

In Vim, the same function is 'g8' (try also 'ga' if decimal or octal are representations interesting).

libreoffice calc - How to refer to a cell when the address is in a variable - Stack Overflow |
Now, one of the most common ways in excel to generate text in the form of ranges is to concatenate. So that if you concatenate A and 1 (CONCATENATE("A","1")), you get A1.

And you can use a reference in this concatentate. Let's say that cell B1 contains 1.

gives the text A1.

Hence, to get the cell A1, you would be able to use:

Except that the CONCATENATE() function now is a bit long, but don't fret! You can use &:

Also super-useful:

=OFFSET(B1, 0, 1)

Mac OS X 10.7: LibreOffice requires a Java runtime environment (JRE) to perform this task - Ask LibreOffice []
You need a 32bit JVM. Most likely you only have a 64 bit VM installed. Beginning with Libreoffice 4.2 we will provide also 64 bit MacOSX builds which work with a 64 bit JVM.

Bug 34836 - PDF export does not export EPS images
This bug is too huge, tangled and un-readable for any developer to get to the end of. To save time and avoid repeated waste I've split it into:

bug#67464 - request for built-in EPS rendering (a long term enhancement)
bug#67465 - try harder to find pstoedit on Macs

One of these is tractable.

Julien asked:
> Michael: must have missed something but why several bugtrackers?

Because one very long, overly complicated multi-comment bug with multiple issues in it is a disaster: it wastes programmers time to read, and then they realise that there will never be a clean fix even of the easy bit because somehow someone put a man-year task next to a 10 man minute task in the same bug - so ...

Long, unclear, confused, unreadable bugs waste very significant time trying to unwind them. I've split it into two clear, precise bugs that can be read quickly and (I hope) gives a developer a reasonable incentive to fix one of them: the trivial bit - and the satisfaction of at least closing a bounded problem :-)
