Hi Tom,

Hi :)
It is better to post different questions as new threads with an
appropriate subject-line.

1.   Bullet Lists
When your cursor is in a list there is usually a pop-up icon menu.  If you
explore what the buttons do then i think you will find most things except
the re-order the list by criteria.

2.  Larger icon sets
For the part about using larger icons i have tried forwarding the email to
the Design Team.  They probably already have some clever icon sets and some
pretty neat tricks for swapping out sets.

3.  Removing all graphics
If you save the original as .Odt before converting to non-native formats
such as .Pdf or .Doc then there are often neat tricks.  With .Odt and .DocX
you can re-name the file-ending to .Zip and then open with an archive
manager.  Even without renaming the file-ending you can right-click and
choose an archive manager such as WinRar or WinZip or something.  One of
the folders inside the archive contains the graphics.

4.  Wish-list
Post each idea as a normal bug-report
Obviously not all the guidelines are relevant but it gives a rough idea of
some things you might want to include (or add as comments later).  One of
the drop-downs gives an option like "feature request" or something.
Perhaps add "[wish-list]" into the subject-line?

Regards from
Tom :)

Hi all,

using Libre Office 3.4.4

I was wondering if it was possible to create an easy in document list

Setting: Several bullet points below each other. (also for numbered list)
a) Move the individual entries up and down the list (not the hierarchy
just the position) with a click.
b) Order the List according to different criteria.

Secondly, I would like to have bigger Icons. Unfortunately the option
"big" and "small" for the icons has no effect on them whatsoever. I
also don't want to scale everything (as in the scale option) but just
the icons. If I understand it right, the scale option uses GPU power
all the time?

So what would be great would be Icons that I can expand up to 80 x 80
pixels, without using the GPU and without modifiing other menu

Thirdly I was looking for a function that lists all the graphic
objects (lines, arrows, text-boxes, smilies etc.) with the possibility
to erase every object at once, or change the text-flow around each
object at once etc. I need it for example after converting pdfs to doc
and then erasing all the unneccesary graphics stuff.

And fourth. Is this the right place to post such a wish-list or is
there a hierarchical sorted official wish-list somewhere around?

whether there is a chance for improvement in libre office writer,
headers and footers, so that was outside of the document and not in the
document? as in ms office.

By "outside of the document", Łukasz means "on the margins". In MS Word
and newer you can place text in the header/footer that is on the margin.
Honestly, I can't decide if this is great idea or just stupid.

Anyway, there has been some changes about headers and footers in LO 3.5:
<>. Not sure
resolves Łukasz's issue, since I use only stable releases. There are
for beta2 available and, according to release plan, rc1 should be
next seven days.

Well, come see how libre office 3.5
