Having installed Mageia-3 on a trial basis, I have come across an omission

I see from:

that the omission is a deliberate change rather than accidental (although it seems
the Help info still  thinks otherwise...).

Why on earth drop a feature that people are using?
What is the rationale?

Failing any other solution to my problem, is there any way I can copy the 'ruler' file over in to so that the latter shows the lines properly?

For me the big issue is that MSO is flamed for poor backwards
compatibility with and support of its own file types, "will you be able
to open those MS files 10 years down the track", and now LO are heading
the same way. Surely if the horizontal rule is to be dropped as such
file compatibility can be maintained by converting to a drawn line
object, as could removing compatibility with earlier files from the LO
binary without moving the code to an optional plugin easily accessed
from the binary.


So much for the big discussion earlier about how everyone should switch to ODT because the standard wouldn't change. LOL

This just proves, that if you want those old files, you'd better have an old OS and software available to read them.
