Hi everyone,


* Improvements to the footnotes. ...

I actually like them with 1[tab]TextOfNote, but I don't mind more flexibility.

* "Don't add space between paragraphs of the same style"

There is one fairly simple solution, which is to add space BEFORE paragraphs rather than after them. Ever since Word 6 I have always defined styles that way and it solves most problems : I put more space before headers, only 6-pt space before normal paragraphs and 2 or 3-pt space before bullets, and I seldom correct these values.

Which brings a few other suggestions:

- Program default styles with some "space before" the paragraph and no space after them.
- Program less default styles.
- Allow one to define default tabs with any value: right now it is impossible to define them at less than 1.18 picas (or 0.2 inches or 0,5 cm). Using that default makes hanging indents very wide indeed.
- Make the whole process of defining hanging indents much simpler.
- Solve existing bugs in character style sheets.

Finally, one improvement in marketing is to better explain style sheets and especially what to do with hanging bullets and numbering.
