LibreOffice cde-package: PDF Generation for MailMerge Reports
Deprecated. Cde package will no longer receive support, and will be removed from MMR in future versions.
This is mainly due to the fact that the author of the cde stopped supporting it and the problems it generates with virtualized servers.
In web hosting services where you can't install LibreOffice or Apache OpenOffice, please download our LibreOffice cde-package, unpack the tar file anywhere and set 'DHA_OpenOffice_cde' config variable (see "Config Variables" section in MailMerge Reports documentation).
