I understand the legitimate technical issues that you are raising but
unfortunately the problem is with the ultimate end user. The real
solution is social not technical of training and education. My
observation is there are significant number of users who will resist
doing the technically correct procedure because they believe it is
extremely difficult even when it very simple. I know people will not
learn to use Powerpoint or Impress to make a slide show or presentation;
I actually have prepared presentations for them. And I am not very
proficient with either Powerpoint or Impress because I rarely use it for
my own projects or work (more accurately almost never use it for work or
personal projects).

So these people have a problem which prevents them from using software in general. This is what I try to tell them all the time: Just get a copy of MS Office and do what you are supposed to do. Pay and shut up. This is not replacement for any other vendor's software. In particular it is not a social project to save you the MS license fee.
Nough said.
