In LibreOffice "reveal codes" are called "nonprinting characters." Ctrl + F10.

I never seriously used WordPerfect, but iirc Reveal Codes showed you far more than just non-printing characters. It revealed all the formatting instructions - so more analogous to HTML markup - like "View source" on a web page.

Imagenomic Noiseware

Hi All

I should like to see the Imagenomic Noiseware program on Linux, in my opinion it is the best one to remove noise from photos, this is the address:
http://www.imagenomic.com/nwpg.aspx
Commonly I use the wonderful Gimp, but when I am on Windows, nothing is better than Noiseware Community Edition Standalone 2.6; I use the freeware one, maybe professionals needing the "Professional Edition", this is the download page:
http://www.imagenomic.com/download.aspx
(scroll down to the end).

Best Regards

Hello

I'd like to see native linux versions of lots of professional sound software, but first of all Steiberg Cubase & native implication of VST/VSTi format. It also would be great to have a tool replacing M$ ActiveSync & Nokia PC/Ovi suite (gnokii is not an fully functional), because sometimes I have to reinstall firmware on PocketPC & Nokia devices.

Incorrect. What your image shows is called "Show Non-printing Characters" in WP. Reveal Codes is a separate panel opened (usually) at the bottom of the document panel. This shows things like <Start Bold>The Text</End Bold>. And then each of those tags are turned into interactive buttons so you can change their settings (e.g. changing a style by double clicking on it's RC-button) or drag them to new positions, erase them, etc.

See this bug report from way back when on OOo's formus still: https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=3395

There's just an attempt at making a RC in OOo.Write / LO.Write. And it's only doing the view codes, no interaction.

You are absolutely correct.
My mistake.

No biggie ... It's difficult to figure out what RC is if you've never used it before. The problem is that if you've used it, nothing else seems worth while

It's to such an extent, that if I could I'd use WP just because of this one single feature!

Losing my memory in my old age. I used WP for many years starting with version 4.2 (IIRC), then 5.1 (a classic), both for DOS and then 5 or was it 5.1 (or both) for winblows. Once wrote a 26 page web site using 5 or 5.1 for winblows.... or was the first version for winblows number 6?

As soon as you said, "...Reveal Codes is a separate panel opened (usually) at the bottom..." it all came flooding back.
If I could get a current version of WP to work in WINE I would consider "forgetting" about corel crawling into bed with the evil empire. As that is apparently not to be, I'll stick with LibreOffice. I don't do as much word processing as I use to anyway, so it is not as important as it once was.

I have to admit the WP "underwater screen" as it was called in my country was less laughable as many people said it was. As it seems, many people prefer an over simplified user interface producing a WYSIWYG document. Look at Google docs. Most people prefer to manual format and manual number headings, instead of applying styles and figuring out how autonumbering works. For those of you who prefer the RC codes of WP: Latex is all RC without WYSIWYG, you use your preferred editor, and you produce really superior looking documents.

there is also LyX, which provides a quasi-wysiwyg frontened to LaTeX, but still lets you see and edit the formatting code

Will do anything that those will do, use less system resources, and give you more control over the process.
