"Secret" but awesome LibreOffice features ! (?)

In a thread on the board-discuss section, @ohallot listed a number of features LibreOffice has but almost nobody knows about:

and possibly others.

I know about Hybrid PDFs: That how you can export a PDF which also contains the original document, which you can then open in LibreOffice for continued editing and also in PDF viewers for viewing like a regular PDF. This YouTube video demonstrates that flow.

But what about the other features? What are they? The public thirsts for enlightenment! :slight_smile:

Hi Eyal,

Thanks for highlighting these! I’ll start to promote them on our social media channels, Reddit etc. Starting with the first one you listed, TSCP classification:

Everyone is free to add more lesser-known features that deserve a mention, and we’ll do some promotion :wink:


Actually, that particular feature is not quite attractive. I think I would probably appreciate LO declaring lack of support for state-secret-stuff. :frowning: … this goes hand-in-spiked-glove together with the “promotion of sovereignty” line. :frowning:

I don’t know how “secret” it is but I’m a big fan of how LO can insert QR codes out of the box with Insert > OLE Object > QR and Barcode.
Especially since there are many online “free QR code generators” that actually use a redirect in the middle, and later on ask you to pay to keep the redirect alive… Absolute scammers, defeating the purpose of QR codes.
Something to advertise!

Well, not literally secret, just hard-to-notice/easy-to-miss; I’ve added quotation marks.
