Bug report / feature suggestion

Dear Design Team of LibreOffice!

I am not sure, whether this is the right contact to post my suggestion,
but probably you can forward it, if needed.

LibreOffice/OpenOffice I use now for about ten year in academia
environment and I really appreciate the achievements you have reached so
far.
But there is one missing feature I really get upset about for these many
years: the missing ability to print comments next to the text (and not
at the end of the document). It is such a critical and central feature
you need urgently in every collaborative situation. Here is the fitting
bug report page I found:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36815 . I really wonder,
that the developers of LO concentrate on many minor issues like bullet
points in the note section, but neglect the central ones that are
neccessary to use LO at all. (Now I always have to open my Writer
documents in Word to be able to print the comments. So, everyone else
would stick to Word in such a situation.)

Please help!!!

With best regards,
Wim Schwerdtner

Re: Bug report / feature suggestion

Hi Wim,

I created an Issue at Freedomsponsors for this:
http://www.freedomsponsors.org/core/issue/209/advanced-printing-capabilities-of-comments

There you can offer some money for the person who implements this. You
pay only, when it's completed.
If you can afford, you can of course contract a developer or a company
offering development services around LibreOffice. Then you might write
to the Development Mailing list.

Thanks
Samuel

Everyone thinks their bug is more important than the others’ :-)

I wouldn’t worry, your bug will be eventually fixed when one guy finds the time.

Thanks for reminding us of this "feature request" that has been with us
for a while. I was also keeping an eye out for this feature request, but
lost track of it.

I will see if I can raise the profile of the this particular feature
request with the devs. Some of my colleagues in the educational field
have also voiced the same wish for LibreOffice.

Could you check in with us in a month or two to see if it has been
picked up by a dev? Feel free to "ping" (write) me if you wish. I am
trying to keep my eye out on issues dealing specifically with academia.

Many thanks again for your comments. We really appreciate them.

Cheers,

Marc
