Thanks for the tech info.

I did not know that, and i am using Staroffice, after Oo since it became

Open source.

I only have one thing to say MAKE IT EASIER

As I have just say I do think Interfaces must be think for lammers,

complete lammers.
And there must be advanced options for advanced users.

Why not an easy FORM module, that can publish a form to send in a web pa

by any lammer.
Where this web form send a PDF result and a database result to the form

And also an easy way to do it by mail.

If it is really easy and for lammers - only question of interface after

your response -
Would it become a de facto standard? wouldn't it?

There are an excellent open source migration process in a Generalitat

Valenciana deaprtment with the creation of a new Open Source program nam

gvSIG and others and they say they ar

working in CAD and in FORMS to complete the migration to opensource

depending of Autodesk and Adobe. This open office form must not complete

what they want. But perhaps if there where a new angle - new easy

interface - would make them and others to installa full Libre Office onl

for this function.

Note I observe in lammers to use proprietary products because Oo, and in

near future Lo do not give rhem any value add. Even if MSO cost the

company money and Oo not.

If Lo begins with it first non beta edition DOING OTHER THINGS that are

necesasry for an office, this Value add would make it worth to be


And FORMS, Integrated easy scanning tools, E-FAX, PDF edition, Billing,

Accounting, ERP, VoIP, as modules with the same and easy interface would

be a great new tool to install not a fork that does the same than Open

office or MS Office.

Actually, LibO (OpenOffice) has very powerful "form" creating tools a

make sense, to me, to try to advertise this fact and to encourage the

I know that feature and used it to create forms that could be filled o

Then if people wanted to modify the forms, they would just have to
modify the forms, it would just be a question of re-working the LibO


IMHO, this is what we should be encouraging.

LibO also does a great job at creating forms and then exporting these
.pdf format (.pdf is also an ISO document standard
( If, for ex
you are creating a form for a group, you can send them both the .pdf
form (there is no real way to modify this form in whole) and the LibO

file that you used to create the form. The LibO file could then be us
to modify the form is the group wanted.

If you want to get both, you can use the PDF-Import-Extension. You can

te with
that extension hybrid files, that opens with the programm module, that

used to
create the file, or with a pdf-reader.
