Hi Imacat,

        This really belongs on the design list; please reply only to there,
unless you have a patch or are seriously considering doing the work;
as/when you are committed there - then:

        is a better forum. My personal take is that the longer name is more
descriptive and helpful - if it fits into the normal Unix app selection
guis, but we should have a holistic solution for all apps, and the UX
guys would want to have some input here. Please take it off the dev list

Dear all,

    Hi.  This is imacat from Taiwan.  I received a mail from some friend
in Canonical, Taiwan.  What do you think about this, to change the title
from "LibreOffice Calc" to "LibreOffice Calc Spreadsheet"?

    I know that this is technically very easy.  The problem is:  Is this

Hi Imacat,

Sorry for the cold email for LibreOffice feature request.  I am
wondering you might be able to help it.

I submitted a feature request below.

The application name showing on menu is LibreOffice, LibreOffice Calc...

would definitely help LibreOffice adoption from new users and from users in
none-English speaking countries, ex: CJK countries, if the application name
showing "LibreOffice Calc Spreadsheet" instead of "LibreOffice Calc" only.

This feature might not be important to English speaking people, but
certainly help to improve Libreoffice adoption in none-English speaking
countries.  For example, LibreOffice Calc Spreadsheet will be shown
"LibreOffice Calc 試算表" in Traditional Chinese.  I believe most
Traditional Chinese speaking people will feel friendly on it and are
willing to try it.
