Here is a great sadness: I'm having to work with M$ Office.

It is tho' in a good cause, I'm helping my fella get a promotion. I've suggested that the people he works for use OpenOffice, but local government seems stuck in its antiquated ways.

I've tried to use OpenOffice. It just
doesn't work for me. The real sadness, to me
at least, is that it remains in such a buggy
and/or feature incomplete state for years.

Admittedly, I don't push it very hard, but I have only good experience of it.

I wish OO had the ability to print postal bar codes. There is another feature I would like but I can't think of it now.

Ah, thanks. It seems the link you posted earlier was broken... it said something like "the lobby is not a wiki"..... no idea


Here's my page referencing the phrase:

'''''IT'S NOT?''''' Awww, crap. I was:

* Hoping
** that mark-up would work, and,
** that it followed's syntax
* to post a Wiki-markup post sometime next week, and,
* I wouldn't have to cite sources. (citation needed) Stop it!!

;-) j/k of course

I would like but I can't think of it now.

I use it on my computers for basic Word Processing. My wife took her laptop over to a friends house becaues her friend didn't have Microsoft Office and wanted to type up something. They came back complaining about how difficult it was to setup tables, etc. compared to Microsoft Office and I had to explain to them that I've only ever used it to basically open up *.doc files from the web and that's about as far as it goes for me.

One of my beefs with OO and LibreOffice is that you can create things
like tables, but you can't delete them afterwards. I've tried every
which way, short of disk-zapping the sectors containing the document

*sigh!* I miss GeoWrite. Why, oh why, couldn't the Linux folk just drop
the Microsoft way of doing things and adopt a _real_ flexible, easy to
use, *and* powerful document processing suite as their model instead?

Maybe I don't understand what you are trying to do.

Insert a table: Table-> Insert-> Table-> Enter table dementions.
Delete a table: Table-> Delete-> Table

I don't have a Delete option in any of my Table menus, and highlighting
the table and pressing backspace or DEL key (something you can do in MS
Office) doesn't work either.

okay, I have LibreOffice (Writer) 3.5, I didn't think it was a new feature but maybe it is.
