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=”″>

<!– 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″>
<param name=”quality” value=”high”>
<param name=”wmode” value=”opaque”>
<param name=”swfversion” value=”″>
<!– The browser displays the following alternative content for users with Flash Player 6.0 and older. –>
<img src=”images/flash_thing.png” width=”100″ height=”100″>
<!–[if !IE]>–>
