Re: Inserting copied cells in Libre Calc

Librecalc also has drag and drop. Never used it myself, but it may help. More info at https://help.libreoffice.org/6.3/en-US/ ... _id3155686

Re: Inserting copied cells in Libre Calc

Go to the place you want to insert the cells. Right click and go to the Paste Special dropdown. Then click on Paste Special on the menu that drops down. You will see all kinds options including shifting cells. Not very intuitive, but I think it will do what you want.

Re: Midnight Commander Archive File Bug?

Did some more research and found that when viewing archives MC unzips to a VFS and caches the contents. There is a timeout setting in the Options menu under Virtual FS. This takes you to a screen for "Virtual File system Setting". The first setting is for a timeout in seconds which is set to 60. Dec...

Re: Does anybody know of a useable Linux version of Foxit PDF Reader for Windows?

Master PDF Editor does a lot more than Foxit. Version 4 (the prior version) was free for non-commercial use. The current version 5 is $83 and lacks some important features. For more information, see https://www.linuxuprising.com/2019/04/d ... linux.html

Re: Netflix and ... Linux Mint

I can confirm that Netflix runs just fine in Firefox 65.0 under Mint 18.3 and 19.1. Not sure what your problem is. But Netflilx does work under Mint.

Lately Linux has been occasionally misbehaving and I'd like to try a fresh install of 19.1. How can I do this without affecti...

Awhile ago the tray app would occasionally refuse to open on boot, but recently there have been no problems. I am using Dropbox 57.4.89.

Re: LibreOffice Calc Vs. Excel for Excel Power Users

Another option is to run Excel under Crossover. I have the whole MS Office 2016 package running under Crossover and with the exception of some small things in Access it works very well. That way you can run Excel on your Linux box. I believe there's a free trial of Crossover and you can see how it w...
