    Bug List

    Ideas from the Crowd

    Feel free to add some.

    • Small bug that can annoy a lot: When dealing with tables in Writer, this small bug can cause lots of additional work. If you have a formatted table in Writer and you just want to add/change the table border, Writer always jumps to 0.1cm padding/spacing to the contents of the cells. This absolutely doesn't make sense and the user has to manually reset the "spacing to contents" to the previous values. tdf#93975 (comment 6 to the bug report describes the steps to reproduce the issue)
    • Your idea

    Discussion Topics

    Feel free to add some.


    See FOSDEM accommodation for relevant information; the punch line is that most people stay at the Bedford Hotel.
