You god-damn autists, where the hell is my "Sheet" Menu on Libre Calc? There is only one "answer" online to get it and that does not work for me. Resetting the menus does not work.

Spent a half hour on this already, which is typical using your freeware crap, wasting all my time trying to figure out how to do the simplest thing. I need to delete cells, not rows, and supposedly I can only do this on the "Sheet" menu, but there is no fucking sheet menu on my Calc.

Any of you faggots know how I can get it?

So, I must confess something.

I tried to use LibreOffice to do some basic stuff on college, 2 or 3 years ago. It was a shit experience, it couldn't handle any .docx files that I added forms (like lines, text boxes, etc).

In fact, it was so shit, that I even spend some time shitposting about LibreOffice here on /g/.

These days I downloaded LO 6.0 to try it again, and I was impressed. Of course it still has a dated as fuck GUI, and of course it's still not as good as MS Office, but this time around LO handled pretty much everything I tried, with no problems at all.

So here am I, apologizing to the Open Document Foundation.

As an aside - I use gnumeric for spreadsheets. Smaller, more extensible with plugins and doesn't take half an hour/all the resources to load like localc. Not sure if it has a specific fix to your problem tho.

On any other forum, I would agree with you. But I figured here people would take it with a sense of humor.

Also, it has been my experience that even the most polite and thoughtful questions ar met with RTFM from linux weenies, it's just their nature (if they even understand english - and I am talking about the native english speakers). So I practiced a little offensive maneuver.

Different types of flouride my friend. Sodium flouride, which is what's in toothpaste is great for killing oral bacteria and keeping your enamel healthy. Calcium flouride, which is in the water supply serves to calcify your pineal gland, leading to insomnia, increased risk of cancer and separating you from the all encompassing universal connection between living things

Businesses don't really give a shit about word, its mostly useful for schools. Excel is probably microsoft's greatest product, and has been since they originally wrote it for the macintosh in the early 80s. Excel is a fantastic spreadsheet system and there are millions of very useful, although very poorly programmed plugins that make the accounting industry run. Unfortunately, lately microsoft has been shooting itself in the foot by moving some of the functionality that used to be built in into separate modules that you have to pay for. dumb fuckers

It's a catch-22. Nobody uses Calc, therefore it never improves over Excel.

>> No.64884229

Don't get me wrong, I understand that, but where I feel a modicum of pity for the devs is that they'd look bad if they dropped Calc, even though most if not all of LO programs match or exceed MO.

I mean seriously. Writer handles images so well compared to Word, which STILL has that damnable "treat images like an oxygen-starved textbook" feel. In writer, when you click on a part of the screen, the cursor moves to the position; in word you have to make useless whitespace like an idiot. Writer feels like a solid combination of text editor and word processor.

It's not even that Excel is particularly amazing, it's just that I look at Calc and it just seems so...lacking. It's probably more than good enough for Free Software advocates and hobbyists that don't rely on spreadsheets for a livelihood though.

>> No.64884504

Libreoffice Writer isn't bad, in fact I'd say it's just as good if not better than Word. Excel is the only fucking reason I still use windows, especially when I have to automate shit and xlwings in python does the job quite nicely

The inode will still be present on the hard drive, you just unlinked it from other inodes.
The application still uses that inode, so as long as one program uses it, it will remain.
It's like holding a reference on an object.
