Greetings!  With all of the recent discussion about Linux being a viable
alternative to Windows, in today's computing world, I've read many
comments about whether or not LibreOffice is a good alternative to MS
Office.  Some say yes, others say no.   One common comment made by those
who say no is Writer isn't good for "complex documents".  For "basic"
word processing, it's fine.

Question:  in what ways does LO Writer "fail" at editing or creating
"complex documents"?

Does anyone here have any experience with LO Writer and "complex
documents"?  If so, what has your experience been (either good or bad)?

I know I haven't actually defined "complex documents" but I haven't seen
any definition of that in any of the comments I've read either.  So,
I'll leave the definition up to whatever you would consider a "complex
document".  :)

I've submitted on LO Writer bug where Writer didn't handle Word
documents with pages with different page orientations well.  I was
helping a friend with a term paper and most of the paper was in portrait
orientation, but a few pages were in landscape.  LO Writer treated the
entire document as either portrait or landscape but couldn't handle the
mixture of both. I think that's been fixed, since I reported the bug.
That's been about my only experience with a "complex document".



"The other" Tom
Is the problem with Complex documents really about the complexity, or is it about using LO and?Word on a complex document? I have been working with ODF Authors to create documentation for and then LibreOffice. I consider these document to be complex.
