Using OpenOffice.org Draw to draw Diagram

Filed Under (How-to Guide, Software Guide) by kimloon on 25-07-2009

Is there any free software out there can be used to create professional looking diagram?

Recently, I need to draw block diagrams for some presentations and reports. I began to explore using the free vector-based diagramming program OpenOffice.org Draw to create such diagrams.

I have used other expensive vector-based diagramming program before. Comparing to these programs, OpenOffice.org Draw produces professional looking diagrams to be pasted in the documents or presentations without the money cost involved.

Filed Under (How-to Guide, Software Guide) by kimloon on 04-06-2009

Sometime we need to put a document file on the web for circulation. And the most common file format to be used to do so is pdf file.

Most of us write our documents using Microsoft Office Word. Unfortunately, Microsoft Office does not provide export to pdf file facility in the package. We may need to purchase other software to do so.

Alternatively, we can also convert the file online. This will be a time consuming process if we want to convert a very big file.

There are free software packages available on the net which allow us to convert the document files to pdf format.

Filed Under (How-to Guide, Software Guide) by kimloon on 07-02-2009

When we plug in our external drive (e.g. thumbdrive, external hard drive, SD Card etc) in to the PC/laptop, there is seen to be some activities that Windows is accessing the drive. But this is nothing happening on the screen. When we open the Windows Explorer, we can’t find the external drive or media.

We are wondering, what actually happened. Is the external drive damaged or worse, the USB port is damaged.

There is a possibility that the Windows could not automatically assign the drive letter to the removable media. The followings are the steps to manually assign the drive letter to the external media. Read the rest of this entry »

How to convert Adobe (pdf) file to image file?

Filed Under (How-to Guide, Software Guide) by kimloon on 19-01-2009

There are cases when we want to take a snap shot of a Adobe Reader (pdf) file. Or we see some content in a pdf file and wish to convert a portion as an image file.

If you have running Windows with at least Office 2003, this is a very simple process.

1. open Microsoft Office Pictures Manager. Select Thumbnails view. Make sure that you are in the directory/folder where you want to store the file.
picture-manage-thumbnails-view

2. In the Adobe Reader, at the top pull down menu, go to “Tools”, “Select & Zoom” and then “Snapshot Tool”.
pdf_snapshot-tool

3. Use this tool to select and copy the image.

4. Over at the Microsoft Office Pictures Manager, Paste the image. It will automatically create a new bmp file.

5. If the created file is too small, repeat 3 and 4 with larger zoom at Adobe Reader.

Please buy note that, some Adobe Reader file can be password protected to prevent copying.

Powerpoint Slide Show file to Powerpoint Presentation File

Filed Under (How-to Guide, Software Guide) by kimloon on 13-01-2009

One of common challenges is after we downloaded a Powerpoint Slide Show File, we want to open it with Microsoft Powerpoint, instead of Powerpoint View.

We can easily open the file using Microsoft Powerpoint. All we need to do is to rename the file extension.

To do so, we first have to set our windows explorer to show the file extension. At the Explorer pull-down menu, you click on “Tool” and select “Folder Options…”. It would open a new windows. Select “View”. In the window, by default, there is a tick on the box beside “Hide extensions for known file types”. Click on the box to remove the tick and click “Ok’.
explorer_view there is a “.pps”, then we are on the right track. Now go to the file we want to open. Select the file. Hit “F2″ key to rename the file. Now, change the “.pps” to “,ppt”.

Now double-click the file. We would be using Powerpoint to view the file.
