Hi everyone,

First of all I want to congrats for your work with LibreOffice design and
propousals about. I'm just a simple "expert" user of (before)
and LibreOffice (now), I've migrate from MS Office to OpenOffice/Libreoffice
in three spanish companies, me and a total of about 60 terminals with
Libreoffice (in differents OS). Second, I would like to say sorry about my
english...   ;-(  (I'm working on it). And third ... I have some
improvements sugestions about the user interface:

   1. One of the main complaints I have receibed from the users of these
   companies is: "Libreoffice is very slow charging the first time..." NO
   COMENT, one litle solution: I think it could be good to have by default the
   autostart load libreoffice libraris option selected. By the way, I've
   detected a bug with gnome in Ubuntu 10.10 when the Libreoffice autostart is
   activated the gnome shutdown button doesn´t works and is necesary to
   finalize Libreoffice before...(I know this is not the place... ;-)
   2. The current color selector is very limited, In our company we need to
   use the corporate colors and of course these colors are not in the default
   color selector. We know we can add it in Tools/Options/Libreoffice/Colors,
   but its very unconfortable because I have to do in a lot of computers, and
   every time we update the Libreoffice version, the colors have gone!.... I
   think it would be more productive to change the color selector. I'd like to
   have several tabs when I select a color (for a table, text, background,
   ...), at least: RGB selector, CMYK selector,  HTML color code, Circle color
   selector... (I add few images: colors_cmyk.png, colors_roda.png,
   3. A Zebra button: I think it could be nice to have a "zebra" button in
   writer, calc and impress for autoformat tables with two colors and make more
   easy readible the data. The procidemt could be the next: 1º We select the
   cells we want to format of a table. 2º we push the zebra button and a color
   dialog apears. 3º we select the color we want (this could be the dark). 4º
   then the cells we have selected have changed the background color
   alternatively by rows, one row with the color we have choose and the next
   with the same color but  up L level (L of HSL color value "lighter").
   4. CALC: Multiple easy filter selector (multiple_selection_filter.png)
   5. BASE: I think it must be easy to add several table sources for the
   same .odb file, for example: one table indeed in the same odb file, other
   from mysql server, and other from a xls file.... (linked_tables.png)
   6. BASE: It could be easier and quickly to create buttons with a similar
   MSAccess wizard that automaticlly generate the code. Create button: for
   reports (open a report in preview mode, print a report, ...) / for records
   (erase a record, create new record, duplicate this record...) / for forms
   (close this form / open other form / ...)
   7. I tried to send you all these recomendations by the wiki or the main
   Libreoffice official site, but I didn't find the right place! I think it
   could be awesome to creat one space at one website called brainstorm where
   the user can make suggestions like these ones. If this site exits it's not
   easy enought to send the improvements suggestions.
   8. I think it would be nice to put one section in the website called
   brainstorm, similar to other projects like TopazBrainstorm in<>

Tanks for read me

See you

Miguel Verdú.
