I have a large collection of photographs, which are documented in a spreadsheet which I originally produced in OpenOffice. Each entry is hyperlinked to the image. Most of the image filenames contain spaces.
I have just tried to use the spreadsheet, and discovered that Libreoffice will not link to a file (or folder) with a name containing spaces (e.g. /path/to/imagename with spaces.jpg).
It is a long time since I have used this document, so I am not sure whether it has ever worked in Libreoffice, but it worked perfectly in Openoffice.
I am using Archlinux, LXDE, and pcmanfm.
This is a real problem. I really do not want to have to rename hundreds of files just for the benefit of Libreoffice (and in any case some other applications use the names as they are, so they would fail).
I would be very grateful for any advice.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. I've just discovered that Libroffice Writer has the same problem, so it looks like it's package-wide.
Yes, I know I could do this as a workaround (and I may have to eventually), but that's not really the point. I just want the package to work as it should (and as it used to). If Gnucash/Viewnior etc can cope with spaces, Libreoffice really should!!
