Save a file in mul­ti­ple for­mats in one go


Computer Active (UK) - - Make Of­fice Better -

If you need to share your doc­u­ment with sev­eral peo­ple but you don’t know which pro­gram they use, Li­bre­of­fice has a handy ex­ten­sion that lets you save it in three for­mats (Li­bre­of­fice Writer, Mi­crosoft Word and PDF) si­mul­ta­ne­ously.

To in­stall it, open Li­bre­of­fice Writer, click the Tools tab, Ex­ten­sion Man­ager at the bot­tom, then click the ‘Get more ex­ten­sions on­line’ link (at the bot­tom left). This opens the ‘Li­bre­of­fice Ex­ten­sions and Tem­plates’ web page. Type mul­ti­save in the search field at the top right and press En­ter, then click the Mul­ti­save op­tion on the search re­sults page. Next, click the ‘starx­pert_­mul­ti­save1.3.0.oxt’ (cur­rent ver­sion num­ber at the time of writ­ing) link next to the Down­load icon.

Re­turn to Li­bre­of­fice Writer, click the Tools tab, then Ex­ten­sion Man­ager. In the win­dow that opens, click the Add but­ton, nav­i­gate to the ‘starx­pert_ mul­ti­save-1.3.0.oxt’ ex­ten­sion file in your Down­loads folder, click Open, then restart Li­bre­of­fice.

You’ll now see a new mul­ti­save icon (see screen­shot) at the top left (be­side Li­bre­of­fice’s stan­dard Save icon). Once you’ve fin­ished typ­ing your doc­u­ment, click this icon, then tick the boxes be­low the file for­mats you want it saved in. In the fields at the top, name the files and choose which folder you want to save them to, then click Save.
