 Posted: Tue Dec 05, 2006 2:16 pm    Post subject: floor function and ceiling function [SOLVED] Hi - it's me again. Is there a way to represent floor function (round down) and ceiling function (round up) in OOo? Normally you use edged brackets "[f(x)]" without the upper horizontal line for floor functions and edged brackets without the lower horizontal line for ceiling functions.Last edited by xxlray on Tue Dec 05, 2006 11:08 pm; edited 1 time in total

Thanks. I used "search" but, the title had no hint on floor/ceiling functions so I did not find it. So the solution is:
 Code: lceil 2.5 rceil = 3, lfloor 2.5 rfloor = 2

It is missing in the view->selection box. so I could not figure it out by myself.

I ran into this myself and finally realized that the way the help is presented actually make it most difficult to use for the primary thing that it's useful for: finding symbols that are not in the menu.

So, I took my own advice and filed Issue 72777.
