            usability problems 2
            there are some more problems:

            * i cannot report bugs anonymously, i have to register on the openoffice homepage

            * the print preview uses the color of gtk text boxes as background instead of white but most people will use white paper to print on.

            usability problems
            i like openoffice very much but i do think there are still some problems.

            1) on debian/linux with xinerama and anti-aliasing some labels are drawn on the wrong screen. this is the same bug that has been in gtk about a year ago.

            2) there's no easy way to change the font/font-size openoffice uses for the menus. over here the default is much to big.

            3) if a menu from the menubar is too big, it's drawn aside the menu (ie right of 'File' instead below it) and by this the access to other menu entries right of 'File' is blocked.

            4) it seems openoffice doesn't care on which screen it opens menus and so it happens that half of the menu is on the 1st screen and the other half on the 2nd which is really disturbing.

            5) some dialogs have a minimum size which is really a bad idea since you cannot know my resolution or font/font-size. so it happens that the options dialog is bigger than my screen and i cannot make it smaller (minimum width 1269 pixel).

            Excellent project!
            I hardly ever perform wordprocessing tasks, so I don't want to invest in the goliath MS office suite. I just used OpenOffice Writer 1.0 to create my resume and the application worked like a professional piece of software should. I am very impressed and am considering purchasing the StarOffice product. If you folks are ever in Austin, TX and are thirsty for a beer, I'll gladly buy you a case of cold Lonestar.
