Communicating freely

Thoughts on how we can all talk a little easier, and how that can make life better.

No! Contract language, come back…

The new interface on Koffice (Kword) is lovely.  I think it’s pretty, it’s quick, it’s going to be great.  Going to be.  Going to be.

Right now, however, it seems to have some problems with editing my ODT documents.  We had a lot of fun earlier when I opened a contract, attempted to delete a line, and the window vanished.  KDE crash handler cheerfully appeared.

Oh dear.

I opened the document again in OpenOffice.org.  The formatting was broken throughout.  Oh, not funny.  Delete and restore from backup.  Koffice is put back on the shelf for the rest of the day.

You may be surprised to hear this, but I’m not annoyed.  This is an application in mid-port and  I don’t expect it to work properly yet.  What interested me is how pretty the interface is and how clever the layout appears to be.  Seriously, it was neat.  I’m really looking forward to playing with it more (when I am not editing a contract).
