When I try to insert a symbol the document saves and exits

Asked by Sarah Lasenby on 2010-04-06

It is impossible for me to insert a symbol. When I try to insert a fraction for example the document which I am working on saves and closes itself. Please help me.

Thankyou

It's hard to help you with the information you gave us. What operating system are you using (uname -a)? What application are you talking about (indeed "Epiphany"?) and what do you mean by "insert a fraction"? It's a web browser a.k.a. "user agent" which *displays* stuff (at least most of the time).

Thank you for your response.

Sorry,
The operating system is Ubuntu version 9.10.
The word processing package is Abiword. When I use the term fraction I
refer to the numerical term as
in 1/4, 1/2 etc.
When I am word processing and want to add a fraction eg. 1/2 the
procedure indicated is to select the Symbol from the drop down menu.
If I try to use this facility the document which I am working on just
closes and saves
itself.
Would be very grateful for any help. Sarah

Sarah, unfortunately the AbiWord team does not use Launchpad for bug tracking. Thus I recommend you to go to [L1] and read the instruction there carefully. As an alternative approach I recommend you to install openoffice. You can do that with Synaptic (search for "openoffice") or by openning a terminal and entering "sudo apt-get -s install openoffice.org". Good Luck! :-)

Unfortunately I do not have the powers to change the state of this question to SOLVED, EXPIRED or INVALID. Someone here at Launchpad either grant me that permission or simply apply the change in state to this question, please.

Can you help with this problem?
