Re: Change size in Libre Office Writer 5. From "Standing" to the opposite

You can follow my advice even without any language problem: Click in the status bar of Writer on the third item (it should read "Standard" or similar in your language); this opens the page format settings.

Re: Change size in Libre Office Writer 5. From "Standing" to the opposite

portrait vs landscape belongs also to the page format settings. It is one click to switch between them.

Re: HOW TO: THUNDERBIRD: Copy ENTIRE address book all at once ???

Then do it this way (it will take some time). Create in TB a new address book. This will create a new abook-1.mab file. This step is needed to register the address book in TB. Close TB. Now take the first address book from the older systems, rename it to abook-1.mab and copy it into the profile in 1...

Re: What is Mint's current "official" recommendation about updates?

:roll: Simple facts (and of course you know them): 1. There was never an update for TS in the Mint repo, although Tony provided several new versions with bug fixes (partially critical like the inability to use drives with more thn 2 TB). 2. You had in the past opened an issue yourself regarding TS ...

Not really. But I think, that you are talking about page formatting. There you can set the margins (and more).

Re: Spectre and Meltdown: Next Generation

At least as far as the Swiss cheese with the holes is concerned - more precisely it is the Emmentaler: In principle correct. But all what I did was to translate the passage of the article, I did not want to interpret or correct it. (And in German language the terms Swiss cheese and Emmentaler are o...

Re: Poor Cinnamon 3.8 article

What now? Is Cinnamon 3.8 officially released or not? I read above - dated from 4th May - it is not, but already 2 days ago (2nd May) Clem said expressively at the very top Cinnamon 3.8 is now officially out. I always thought, that "released" and "out" would be in this context the same. :roll: What ...

Re: HOW TO: THUNDERBIRD: Copy ENTIRE address book all at once ???

Perhaps you misunderstood: I asked for the number of address-books. Go into your profile folder and count the number of MAB files. If you have more than 2, the additional address books are most likely named abook-1.mab and so on (increasing number).

Likely.
In the article is said, that we can nowadays not more speak about holes. It is merely a kind of Swiss cheese, which is designed to have holes. With the current cpus there is no end of the drama in sight.

You did not answer, which date you get in the login screen.

Create a fresh new user account and log into it. The same behavior there?

Yes, this is the way to go. But it might be, that for all folders, which you had opened already in the past, you still get the display, which you had used for that folder the last time. You can also avoid that. Go again into preferences -> behavior and activate the option to ignore folder specific d...

It's not an additional context menu command, but an additional option in the compress dialog. Select the command to compress and select as file type 7z. Don't miss to look also into the advanced options in this dialog. For 7z you get options, which are not available for other types (encrypting and s...

Perhaps you are a little bit early. TB 52 will be supported until the end of August. Enough time to look at TB 60, which has not yet been released (scheduled for next week).
