    Sewing pattern software

    Thanks to you all JasKinasis atanere, and wizardfromoz, I did google pattern makers and designers, but nothing I found would open once I had it downloaded, and each subsequent search turned up only the same ones. I will be sure to give these each a fair trial. Thanks again.

    Sewing pattern software

    I not sure where to post this, and I did try searching the forums, but nothing came up for the search terms I used. I'm trying to find out if there is a Linux or other open software program or something for designing sewing patterns -- something that will let me design my own sewing patterns...

    linuxforums.org hack

    Okay, everyone now I have a question on this issue with linuxforums.org -- are they perhaps, possibly, related to/have anything to do with, etc, etc, etc, to linuxquestions.org? From what I can tell of the first/log-in page of linuxforums, they have similar formats, but that could just be...

    Trouble with LibreOffice page numbering

    Oh, now I see. Sorry for my mixup. Actually, I'm centering the numbers -- according to LibreOffice Help the numbers can be either the way you did it, or centered if preferred.

    Trouble with LibreOffice page numbering

    Thank you for you tests, @atanere, but both turned out like books/MS's (perhaps because of the pdf's?). Yes, the numbering could shift, and yes, that is what happened before, but do to the way we are editing (page by page), and then immediately printing the corrected page, I must have the page...

    Trouble with LibreOffice page numbering

    I'm sorry, but that all means nothing to me; the best I can do to answer your question is: (from LibreOffice Help): Inserting Page Numbers in Footers You can easily insert a page number field in the footer of your document. You can also add a page count to the footer, for example, in the form...

    Trouble with LibreOffice page numbering

    Have already updated; I try to do any updates within a day or two of notice, and I know LibreOffice was updated just a few days ago. As to the page numbering, if one doesn't use a footer when putting in the page number, then the page number will move with the text as it is typed; so if you want...

    Trouble with LibreOffice page numbering

    Thanks, jasKinasis and atanere; so far as I can tell with a quick read, none of these touches on my problem, though I'm sure they will help me with the functions I have never had to use or don't understand, but I think I have figured out another way. I started with a fresh, new document, adding...

    Trouble with LibreOffice page numbering

    This is what I originally did when I first started typing the MS, but when I found that it had been messed up, I deleted the footer (and therefore the page numbers), and tried it again, just as you said. But instead of getting an MS with appropriate page numbers for each page, I get all the...

    Trouble with LibreOffice page numbering

    Hello. I have Linux Mint 17.3 "Rosa", and LibreOffice for document work, and am having trouble with LibreOffice page numbering. I am helping my husband write a novel. In doing so, I have typed a Title page, Table of Contents, and 364 pages of content. When I first typed the MS, I had enabled the...

    Looking for LM compatible craft software

    Thanks for all this research, but I should have told you that I have Linux Mint 17.3 "Rosa", so I don't think this one would work for me because it is configured for LM 18.

    Looking for LM compatible craft software

    I am looking for Linux Mint compatible software for a cross stitch pattern maker that will allow me to choose my own designs and colors, and I would prefer a disk I can download from; does anyone know of such? Have already tried those I found on-line, and they did not work (either they were not...

    Gimp trouble

    Thank you, JasKinasis, the book Beginning Gimp is another help I had no idea of and will be sure to get and read it. As to the User manual, I knew about it, but not this particular version and will be sure to read it as well. Regarding the User Manual, is there a way to download it to my...
