Hi Mike I've just looked at that video again for the first time in quite a while. I have to say there is nothing in it that is not valid today and not a lot of information that ought to be added. The only fundamental change is the availability of the new user interface features in the

Onyeibo highlights an important issue which I'm sure might never have occurred to many of us, whether in the context of LO or anything else. There are many countries around the world where the "nation" does not define the lowest level of cultural or linguistic sub-division. Even in Europe there

Mike With the notebookbar coming out of experimental I'm assuming it will be selected from the "User Interface" item on the "View" menu, as now when the user permits experimental features. This gives 9 options, of which 6 relate to an MS Office type of menu system. I can't help thinking this

Hi I am a newcomer to the LibreOffice marketing group so, first, greetings to everybody. Now that the Notebook bar is no longer going to be an experimental feature perhaps the question of the default setting needs to be addressed. When encouraging somebody to migrate from MS Office, if the
