We don't exactly use a theme, just the components such as style, icon, window treatment, etc.
I was thinking of the naming theme. I see mention of "space." Does that mean that "Horizon" is an event horizon? Also, my sieve-brain can't recall the previous names.

At that time it will no longer be possible to download them, so if you are missing any now is the time to get them. I have d...

I doubt epub is such a simple format, but according to this article , the quality of the epub documents produced by LO is improving fast (tldr: skip to the two updates at the end of the blog entry). If future versions of LO create a CSS file when exporting to ePub, that will be a big improvement.

Re: LibreOffice 6.0.1.1 Doesn't Offer Export to EPUB

Thinking back, I have used Calibre to convert ODT files, but when subsequently editing the ePub I found that I preferred the ePubs made by W2E. If I remember rightly, it was the CSS that was better. No idea what it would do with images mixed in, though.

What are you making, by the way?

Re: LibreOffice 6.0.1.1 Doesn't Offer Export to EPUB

I guess it would probably be a hassle to export docx from LO, then convert in Calibre. No, there is no hassle, LO provides a 'Save As' to several formats including docx, although LO will complaIn that you might lose some formatting. i have had no problems (yet :happy: ). Images are a different issu...
