Lucky you.

1. I want to put chapter name in page header, but I want to limit too long 
text, if it appears. At least two work-arounds exist, but they are far from 
being plain and simple:

2. In template, I would like to create paragraph style assigned to list style 
which will start at second (or another) list level. You must use tab manually:

3. In automatically generated Table of contents I want dots from chapter name 
to page number. But I want some space between these dots, let's say 0.25cm. 
I couldn't achieve that.

4. If you need exact control of footnotes + separator line + line margins 
height on page basis (and I do), then you must create different page style for 
each page with footnotes. If you document is longer than few pages this is 
really tiresome.

5. I would like to see generated content for character styles. This way I 
could select text, assign "quote" character style and get quotation marks 
before and after placed automatically. If I ever decide to use italic for 
quotes, these marks should disappear. I should be able to do this from Styles 
and formatting window.

6. I use italics for quotations. If I put quote in quote, then it should be 
normal text instead of italics.

(5 and 6 are trivial in CSS.)
These are few ideas out of top of my head, just for Writer (which I use the 
most). Perhaps there could be other things as well.

With improved table autoformat in 3.6 we finally have some kind of usable table 
styles. With Zotero we can have sensible bibliography in documents. Right now 
LibreOffice is better than ever, but there are still some features missing.

You are correct there always more that can be done for some users. But
for most users, many who do not know about the editing features you are
referring to, the feature set they use is essentially from the 90's.

I know I do not use many of the features of Write, mostly because I do
very little actual document writing and what writing I do tends to be
simple documents closer to a short office memo.
