Embedded Objects

The Embedded Objects section specifies how to import and export Microsoft Office or other OLE objects.

These settings are valid when no Microsoft or other OLE server exists (for example, in UNIX) or when there is no LibreOffice OLE server ready for editing the OLE objects.

Si hai un sirvidor OLE activu pal oxetu enllastráu, entós va utilizase el sirvidor OLE pa xestionar l'oxetu.

Si nun hai nengún sirvidor OLE activu pa oxetos MathType, entós los oxetos MathType enllastraos puen convertise n'oxetos de LibreOffice Math. Pa esta conversión, los oxetos MathType enllastraos nun tienen d'entepasar les especificaciones de MathType 3.1.

[L] and [S] Columns

The [L] and [S] checkbox displays the entries for the pair of OLE objects that can be converted when loading into LibreOffice [L] and/or when saving into a Microsoft format [S].

Mark the box in the [L] column in front of the entry if a Microsoft or other OLE object is to be converted into the specified LibreOffice OLE object when a Microsoft or other document is loaded into LibreOffice.

Escueya'l campu de la columna [S] frente a la entrada si un oxetu OLE de LibreOffice tien de convertise nel oxetu OLE de Microsoft especificáu cuando s'almacene un documentu nun formatu de ficheru de Microsoft.

Character Highlighting

Microsoft Office has two character attributes similar to LibreOffice character highlighting. Use this control to select the attribute, highlighting or shading, that LibreOffice should use when exporting LibreOffice character highlighting to Microsoft Office file formats.

Highlighting exports the closest match between a LibreOffice highlighting color and one of the 16 Microsoft highlighting colors, using the Office character attribute that makes it easy for Office users to edit with the highlighting tool in Office applications. This is the default setting in LibreOffice 5.0 to 6.4.

Shading exports all RGB colors to the other Office character attribute. This preserves color fidelity between LibreOffice and Microsoft Office documents, but Office users must edit this character attribute with a tool that is not commonly used or easy to find in Office applications. This is the default setting since LibreOffice 7.0.


The compatibility filter in the Character Highlighting Color dialog provides the Microsoft Office highlighting colors. Use those colors and choose Export as: Highlighting if you want both color fidelity and ease of editing for Office users.

Lock files

Mark this checkbox to generate a Microsoft Office lock file in addition to LibreOffice own lock file. Lock files signal to applications that a resource or file should not be used until the lock is released.


LibreOffice can read lock files generated by Microsoft Office.
