 I've had no problem using Writer to create 200+ page documents with over a  hundred 
illustrations, annotated screen shots and drawings,  imported from Microsoft's Visio or LO Draw 
(LO Draw works best) and JPEG photos.  Also frequently use tables to show information.  The 
documents have many, many cross references embedded in them and four level table of contents at 
the beginning.
Impressive!  :)

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Question about LO Writer and "complex documents"

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".

      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.
