Hello all.

I'd like to make observations on some configuration options.

First, when OOo2 saw the lights, to me there was a regression regarding the
configuration: from then, under Tool-> Options, you can see only the general
parameters and the ones from the current open application (Writer, Calc,
etc). Before, the options windows contained the options for the entire
I'm sure there are technical motivation for this, but from a user point of
view means that you have to open any specific application when you want to
configure all in one pass.

Good point.

And this is the second observation: why don't enable "guides while moving"
by default, together with vertical ruler under Writer. I think they are very

That depends on user's way of work, I suppose: I tend to avoid any
kind of direct formatting and use styles and "numeric menus" (like
image positioning) instead, because using the mouse _seems_ to be
easier, but at the end of the day it is not.
I have rulers disabled on Writer.

The third observation is an incoherence that was not present in OOo/go-oo
2.x. Before the AutoCorrect was in a common place between all LibO
applications, under Tools menu. Now, for Writer, is under:
Format -> AutoCorrect -> AutoCorrect options...
While for Calc is always under (but in a different position):
Tools -> AutoCorrect options...
From a user point of view i think it's confusing.

Tools -> Autocorrect options is also present on Writer: You only have
two entries for the same thing, and both of them make sense.
