Hi all,

I have been using OO and LibreOffice prior to 3.5 with Base and Reports. Now the Reports in 3.5 can 
not be used any further, instead I had to try (despair) and create new Reports using the Oracle 
Reports Tool. IMHO this is a major leap backwards… It is very, very slow on my Mac (2.13 GHz 
Core2Duo), it does somehow not save my new generates Reports. If I choose the Table Model it will 
write the Column Heading repeatedly (I did not find a way to prevent this) on each Row. To Adjust 
the Columns and Rows is REALLY Painful. It is no longer possible to use Fields i.e. Page Numbers. 
Despite setting the Format to A4 Landscape the GUI will limit placing Labels further than 200mm of 
a Portrait A4 Page.

I loved the general improvement on 3.5 but this really forced me to downgrade to 3.4. I hope this 
gets reverted in future versions, because sincerely I do not think anybody will use this Editor.

If there is a way of reusing (or transforming) Pre 3.5 Reports in 3.5 onwards please let me know. 

Kind regards
