I recorded a macro and ran but not a timer, that's not really what I was
looking for.

I was wondering if there was a question that could be answered to Google
Docs Synchronization and LibreOffice.

About the OO2gdocs extension that provides this functionality. I asked the
developer if he could improve Google Docs Synchronization. Here is my Email
that I sent him..

But this is there from some time ;-)
I think it was 2-3 years ago when I added autosave to OOo2GD. It works in
this way that when you download document from Google Docs you need to mark
"autoupdate" (you may mark in Configuration to default autoupdate). After
this when you will save your document it will be send back to Google Docs.
This is done after saving of document (exactly in each situation when
modification date or size of file will be changed).
Auto save working in this way that this will work without saving is
possible, but much more difficult to do. Now I need to have file to send it
to Google Docs, and need some time to create
file, so eve if I will with some interval ask for saving file I will
need to wait to this, and it may stop maybe if I will be able
to access autosaved file? I will look on it.

I'm using official API from Google to upload/download files. Google Cloud
connect uses some different way to work with Google Docs, I cannot be sure
but I think it is something working in this way that MS Office sends
information about changes in document (not in file but in document) to
Cloud Connect servers, those servers create new file and update it in
Google Docs. The same in opposite way, so first file is downloaded from
Google Docs to Cloud Connect servers, and those servers sends diff to MS
Office. I think Google bought Cloud Connect mainly because of this software
able to sync documents ;-)

OOo2GD is one of my weekend projects, and I'm implementing new features to
it when I have time and nothing more interesting to do ;-)

Hi, i'm guessing your the maintainer of the OO2GDOCS extension for
OpenOffice and LibreOffice. I've been using Ubuntu as my primary OS since I
have been at school in 2007, at home. I have been using your extension
since 2009. I was wondering if there would be a way to make it more
compatible with google docs. Google Docs has an auto saving feature that I
use for my school work at school. It is really good!!! works brilliantly
with any web browser including internet explorer. would there be a way for
you integrate this feature into OO2GDOCS Extension so that once documents
are uploaded they can automatically saved and uploaded to the cloud.
Something that would be similar to Google Cloud Connect but a whole lot
better!!! by the way do you have to get permission from Google for this
extension to integrate well? as it would be for libreoffice. would there be
a time frame if you were planning to release this schedule in your
extension? The reason I ask for this feature is because it would
significantly help market free open source office software, if it was
possibly integrated with google docs, as it is an auto saving feature. Auto
saving features are now starting to be implemented into MAC OS X Lion
include its word processor program Iwork 09. I was wondering if this auto
saving feature was possible, because that would mean in the long run free
office programs (like libreoffice) could have auto saving features like
Iwork. As I most likely believe Microsoft Office would be including auto
saving features in the next version of their own office suites for mac and
windows in the very near future aka. next year! I have also
commented in this post about java GUI. it is a whole lot quicker. and looks
slicker. lj. normal user of libreoffice.

To libreoffice,

I was wondering if there was a way to implement google docs into
libreoffice effectively with auto save. Similar to auto saving on
google docs.
I sent an email to the developer of the project oo2gdocs He replied
and said it can only effectively work if the document is imported
from google docs. Would there be a way for a document to auto
update and save to the hdd and google docs at same time? When the
document is from libreoffice??

AFAIK auto-save only works to the most recent save format at one time
by design. It should be possible to achieve in Macros however.

 * Record a Macro doing what you want.
 * Add an interval timer with loop.
 * Turn standard auto-save off.
 * Run the macro.
