Ximian OpenOffice

April 21, 2004 / Linux Unix QNX

pronounced… well, however you pronounce it… I do zim ian

anyways, I’ve been using OpenOffice for work related stuff (I bring work home so I can leave office early…), and I’ve used it for writing my resume couple days ago.

I just figured out how to get spellcheck working in OOWriter, here’s the link: http://lingucomponent.openoffice.org/download_dictionary.html

There’s a macro that will do the installation :)

There is one defect I find in OO though… When reading WORD document, it doesn’t read the page layout properly

for example, I’ve written a 188 page functional specification for work, and half of it is in landscape mode… when reading in OO, that layout just gets lost :(
