Hi :)
The marketing list keep going on about using "personas" in LibreOffice 4.0.0 but i'm embarrased to 
admit i have no idea what they are talking about nor how to use them.  

Does anyone here know how to use "personas"?  Does one create them in LibreOffice or import them 
from elsewhere?  

Regards from
Tom :)

Be prepared to handle the criticism/questions ie. "why develop eye candy
when there are bugs / new unfinished features / existing stuff broken" -
that's the kind of feedback I get when it comes up.

I haven't followed this feature development so I had no idea until
someone brought it up.


Already getting it on the design list[1].

Follow the thread there, I have also responded to the criticism there.
It may seem like a "shallow implementation" but in my experience in
teaching and observing the kids, this is a really BIG feature that will
greatly influence their choice of suites -- as incredible as it sounds
to some of us.

I look at functionality first, but quite frankly, I added a personas
that I wanted and now have a LibreOffice version of my own (or at least,
that's what the kids think ... ahem ... and myself [*smile*])
That's interesting, perhaps the rationale or a link to the initial
discussion/decision should be in the release notes.

The release notes have an otherwise impressive list of
fixes/enhancements and new features:

I personas suppor took 90% of that page I'd be worried ;)
