I'm writing these messages, doing anything necessary inside the wiki, and working closely with those doing the external work (dumping, loading, re-addressing). The best place for questions is on the Talk page of Moving Day so everybody can see it, but feel free to contact me at the ooo-dev -at- ML, or directly (if the wiki is up).

T. J. Frazier (TJFrazier (Talk | contribs), a.k.a. TJ, on OO.o)

  • Residence: Melbourne, Florida, USA.
  • Background: Retired systems programmer (40 years, Control Data, KRONOS o/s). Professional nit-picker :-)
  • Goal: become a developer (when I get broadband, Ubuntu, external hard disk, C++ textbook, . . . )
TJ 05:38, 29 January 2009 (UTC) Broadband scheduled Feb 2! Ubuntu to follow . . .
TJ 20:09, 18 February 2009 (UTC) Broadband is wonderful. Now examining Basic run-time source, for documentation purposes.
TJ 02:09, 31 July 2009 (UTC) Halfway thru big thick C++ book.
  • Current OO.o activities: proof-reading and light copy-editing, mostly on Basic Guide and DevGuide Basic-related pages. I also file a lot of minor issues (if it's there, it's supposed to work, right?)
    • Promoted to sysop, doing my homework re new accounts and wiki databases. 02:09, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
    • Promoted to bureaucrat in preparation for the move to Apache. 11:42, 22 October 2011 (UTC)
    • Apache committer and PPMC member (tj -at-), 31 October 2011.
  • Lists: dev, dev-web, dev-doc, ODFAuthors; ooo-dev, ooo-issues, infra at Apache.

Basic code for wikification

Basic code (now available as an extension) which may be useful for processing MediaWiki Export Filter output can be found on this subpage: User:TJFrazier/WikiBasic. Please report any problems or suggestions to me, on any of the above lists, or on a Talk page, or directly.

See also Nino Novak's very useful workflow guide for putting a manual on the wiki.

Reveal Codes

Preliminary design specs for an extension to provide this WordPerfect-like feature are on User:TJFrazier/Reveal Codes. Feedback welcome.

Toggle Case between Upper and Lower

04:05, 1 January 2012 (UTC) I've long had a macro to do this, but it had a problem when the target character was the first character of a portion (e.g., an italicized word). Now that I've fixed it, the source is available at User:TJFrazier/ToggleCaseUL. The particular virtue of this macro is that you don't have to select the character: just click in front of it. This is the raw version, with debugging notes commented out, but left in. It runs.

Notice that the same problem exists in the Writer GUI interface. Try changing the first character(s) of a portion (formatted word, e.g.) by hand, without losing the formatting. Most of the obvious solutions don't work; the way I did it through the API also works with the GUI (inserting the new character as the second character of the portion, then deleting the first character).

Encryption Changing in 3.4

22:43, 19 April 2012 (UTC) The code to provide SHA256 / AES encryption was added to OO.o 3.4 Beta without a GUI. As an alternative to changing the registrymodifications.xcu file by hand, a Basic macro to toggle these settings is now available at User:TJFrazier/Encryption.
