[Solved] Doc thumbnails

Postby Crotchety » Tue Apr 19, 2011 1:59 pm

I just read this explanation and workaround of the issue of there being no thumbnails for MS format docs:
However, if anybody is unhappy with this change, creating previews can still be enabled/disabled via configuration. In "Office.Common/Filter/Microsoft/Export" following three attributes determine if preview creation is enabled: "EnablePowerPointPreview", "EnableCalcPreview" and "EnableWordPreview".

but I can't find this path. Where is it?

Thanks,
Crotchety

Hi and welcome to the forum!

It's indeed crystal clear... for geeks developers I guess :roll:

I've made a search on my system and found that file with the EnablePowerPointPreview tag:
C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\Basis\share\registry\main.xcd

Try to change the other tags to true and that should be fine (not tested). Use a mere text editor for that.

Thanks again, Hagar, you are one patient and helpful fellow! I found the tags in question but I can't get the edited file to re-save in that folder (permissions, even though I'm an Admin!) so I'll sort that out later. But at least I know.

Cheers,
C

Just right-click the text editor shortcut and select "Run as administrator". You should then be able to open, edit and save the file. If you don't run the text administrator "as administrator", you only have user privileges when you try to save the file, and users don't have write permission for that file.

Oh, hi again, Bill. Are you and Hagar the only guys doing any work round here? Thanks for the prompt, I'll try that next time. Cheers, Crotchety
