Open Office Tricks

Disable Text Overflow

  1. Format Cells
  2. Select Alignment tab
  3. Set alignment Horizontal to Filled
  4. Actually Never mind, Filled will repeat the content indefinitely! I am curious why this is achievable (for what purpose?) and simply turning overflow on is not.
  5. The hack solution is to put a space in the neighboring cell. How barbaric!

Object Code for Flash

After going through a few options I have come up with some Flash object code that will replace your Flash with an image and a link to download if you do not have the FlashPlayer install or if you are using a browser that is not compatible with Flash i.e. iPhone/iPad.

<object classid=”clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000″ width=”100″ height=”100″ id=”FlashID” title=”Name of Flash Thing”>
<param name=”movie” value=”flash_thing.swf”>
<param name=”quality” value=”high”>
<param name=”wmode” value=”opaque”>
<param name=”swfversion” value=”6.0.65.0″>

<!– The next object tag is for non-IE browsers. So hide it from IE using IECC. –>
<!–[if !IE]>–>
<object type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” data=”flash_thing.swf” width=”100″ height=”100″>
<!–<![endif]–>
<param name=”quality” value=”high”>
<param name=”wmode” value=”opaque”>
<param name=”swfversion” value=”6.0.65.0″>
<!– The browser displays the following alternative content for users with Flash Player 6.0 and older. –>
<div>
<img src=”images/flash_thing.png” width=”100″ height=”100″>
</div>
<!–[if !IE]>–>
</object>
<!–<![endif]–>
</object>

Cubase Tips

In OS X 10.7 and higher the Library folder is hidden.
1. In the Finder select the Go menu while holding the Option key.
2. Select Library, this will appear in the menu between Home and Computer.
3. Locate the Preferences folder.
4. Open the Cubase folder.
5. Open Defaults.xml
6. Highlight and Delete this code for each song in the list you want removed:
<item>
<string name=”Name” value=”Song Name.cpr” wide=”true”/>
<string name=”Path” value=”/file/path/” wide=”true”/>
<member name=”FileType”>
<int name=”MacType” value=”1313099858″/>
