Re: Fw: What happened to OO AutoCorrect ?

I asked on the OO Users list about the Autocorrect facility in OO:

And I posted this there as well: See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=190191

As with mp3 support, RedHat removes certain features from the standard OOo distribution. They won't give any details as to why.

I assume there are also Fedora-specific changes so as to not require Sun's Java and use the Fedora gcj facilities instead.

If you want the full OOo, you have to get it from www.openoffice.org, or someone will have to make fedora packages for an external repo.

I still prefer the Fedora packages: I have had some glitches with the packages from OO.org (e.g. 2.0.3 did not have a working database), and the desktop/system integration is not as complete as the Fedora release.

I install the Fedora packages, then add the latest one from OO.org (installs into /opt), with NO desktop integration. Then I can run the OO.org version for testing or access to some new feature I need.

There are also regressions in the newer OO.org versions. I still run 2.0.2 to avoid those bugs.
