    Well done, that's very useful for me, however why is this not a part of the default installation? This is just as useful as making use of QR codes which is default.

      Because noone has implemented it inside LibreOffice yet :)
      See https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=67090 for the feature request.
