Another example: do you know anyone that use the "send by email"

why the people to whom they sent the file is not able to open it. I
think it is better to completely hide that button.

I think that a massive improvement would be keeping the button, but by
default sending documents as PDF.

If you are 'emailing' a document, then I would assume that you do not
want them to edit it, unless specified otherwise. Because in business
environments, I see people sending around things like
contracts/official letters in .doc files, and if LibreOffice were
smart enough to send out documents as a multi-platform, read-only
document, then we could tout that as a 'corporate feature' (document
security is big, yknow), whilst still providing a useful feature that
people could use in real life. And you could even keep a menu option
to attach as ODT or DOC for those who require it.

Just my 2c.

Hi Damien:

I use it quite a bit and I email often for editing purposes to a group of academics. I can also tell you that the university professors that I know who use OpenOffice use it to mail back and forth to their grad students. It is an great tool.

We should be pushing the ODF formats as much as possible, especially in N. America so that sending an ODF file is also a viable choice. We should not compromise our values of promoting these file formats.
