The intention of this page is to collect the beta feedback from the various mailing list, forums, press, issues and come at the end to a prioritized list of most import bugs we need to fix for 3.0.

Also this is the chance to collect complains of most missed features so that we are able to develop a roadmap for the upcoming releases. 3.0 Beta 2 feedback

bugs 3.0 Beta 1 feedback

good stuff

I wonder if you might like to include on your marketing page OOo 3.0's concerted attempt to finally get word count right. This has been a major bugbear for professional writers, and work is underway right now to get OOo to mimic MS Word in this regard. This is a huge deal for a significant portion of your user base, and a major success worth trumpeting.

The master bug for this Issue 80815 , if you're interested.

2. "Thank you" from a Mac Aqua user

not so good stuff


  • File -> Save As in Vista SP1 broken => Issue 87244
  • MS Office 2007 XML filter issues
  • Impress drag text box not working Issue 89484
  • Strange 600% limitation in Chart2, when changing space width between rectangles , like on this Snapshot [1]
  • [Mac Aqua] writer crashes opening word documents with comments inside Issue 89243
  • There's a nasty confirmed regression in the search and replace which should be fixed before this is released. "x"s are randomly added at the end of replacement strings when formatting is changed.
  • The "word count" section doesn't display correct information. It's very annoying when you work on articles that have stringent word-count rules.

MS-O 2007 support

missing features

  • Calc: Sort icons AZ/ZA should take into account active cell column -> to directly sort based on this column

(very handy feature in Excel) Plus (if possible): should remenber last sorts to enable infinite number of column criteria by successive sorts beginning by minor criterias (as in Excel again) NB: these long since signaled lacks for every day work of the avarage users are healed by simples macros, since not too hard to fix

Microsoft Office 2003 compatibility
