2 things i like in to see in Writer

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on June 23, 2005 11:01 PM
I have been using Writer for at least 2 years now after almost a decade of using Word. I work in a networked environment where documents are shared and can be edited by users.

Two things in MS Word that keeps all my other colleagues to shifting to Writer are:

(a) Document locking, where one document becomes "locked" and is opened read-only when it is priorly opened by another user.

(b) As pointed out in one remark above, clear comment indicators and a better interface for entering comments.

I'd also like Writer to handle large "recorded" changes more efficiently. Not "shown" recorded changes, as Writer warns, will slow down the program.
