NeoOffice 3.0 Patch 6 and NeoOffice 2.2.5 Patch 14 New Feature

From NeoWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

After fixing critical NeoOffice bugs reported by our users in previous patches, we have continued work on additional features for our users.

In early August 2009, we released NeoOffice 3.0 Patch 6 and NeoOffice 2.2.5 Patch 14 with the following new feature: users will be able to change the default document type that opens when you launch NeoOffice.

Get these new features by installing the latest patch from the NeoOffice patch download page.

Special thanks go to all who have donated to the NeoOffice.org project since we released NeoOffice 3.0. Without everyone's donations, not only would we have been unable to implement this new feature, we would not have been able to provide rapid investigation and fixing of all of the critical bugs found by users.

[edit] Steps for using this new feature

  • Starting with NeoOffice 3.0 Patch 6 and NeoOffice 2.2.5 Patch 14, users can have a Calc, Impress, Base, or Formula open when you launch NeoOffice instead of a Writer document by launching the /Applications/Utilities/Terminal application, copying one of the following commands into the Terminal window, pressing the Return key, and then restarting NeoOffice:
    • To make Calc the default document:
      defaults write org.neooffice.NeoOffice DefaultLaunchOptions -calc
    • To make Impress the default document type:
      defaults write org.neooffice.NeoOffice DefaultLaunchOptions -impress
    • To make Base the default document type:
      defaults write org.neooffice.NeoOffice DefaultLaunchOptions -base
    • To make Formula the default document type:
      defaults write org.neooffice.NeoOffice DefaultLaunchOptions -math
  • Users can also set NeoOffice to not open any document when launched by copying the the following commands into the Terminal window, pressing the Return key, and then restarting NeoOffice:
    defaults write org.neooffice.NeoOffice DefaultLaunchOptions -nodefault
  • For users who want to specify more than one launch option, you can specify a list of options using the following Terminal command. For example, users can set NeoOffice open "file1.odt" and "file2.ods" from your Desktop when it launches by copying the following command into the Terminal window, pressing the Return key, and then restarting NeoOffice:
    defaults write org.neooffice.NeoOffice DefaultLaunchOptions -array ~/Desktop/file1.odt ~/Desktop/file2.ods
