Hi :)
Unfortunately the rest of the LibreOffice Community uses the word "Stable"
to mean something completely different from our ('normal' users)
understanding of the word.

They 'just' mean the program wont crash.  They get very offended at the
mention of the idea of being less than stable because a lot of work goes
into testing to make sure it wont crash.

They wont, don't or can't understand the word "stable" from a normal users

Other than that i completely agree with you and i'm fairly certain that
most people on this mailing list probably do too.  It's probably why so
many here stick with "Still" for their clients or on machines they rely on
for actual work.

Regards from
Tom :)

One frustration I've noticed recently is with LO's "Sidebar." In the

my paragraph styles locked in a Sidebar. Now, the Styles box shares the

with every document, I now have to click on the Styles icon in the
Sidebar. I've
looked everywhere to find a way to make "Styles" the default Sidebar
box, but
with no luck. To, me this was a totally unnecessary UI "improvement."

+1 on this

But I can slide the styles box to appear at the top of the side bar and
setting not only 'sticks' with the document but remains for new documents
started and for others opened.

I practically only use writer, sometimes a spreadsheet but almost never the
other modules.

I know nearly every user has preferences for how Gui's should work and you
please everybody.  However, stability does have a large part to play.

My personal peeve is the navigation buttons at the bottom of the main
right hand
scroll bar of writer.  I always use them in 'page up/page down mode' but
can be reconfigured to 19 other functions, at last view.

Unfortunately for me, when I use the Find function (frequently) either
from the
search box on the bottom line or crtl-F or ctrl-H, this changes the
configuration of the pageup/down navigation buttons to 'find'.

It would be nice to have the nav buttons setting independent of other
