OpenOffice Hall of Shame

This is an early draft. It will take better shape as I find time.


OpenOffice cannot be used for Desktop Publishing. In 2015 I spent several weeks trying to get it to automate page numbering of two sections and a table of contents and was ultimately unsuccessful even after finding "solutions" posted on news groups for the precise problems I was experiencing. Every time one thing was fixed, another thing broke. I even saw that users posted that the only way to do things was to do them manually, which is no solution at all. How long has OpenOffice been available and not fixed these basic things!

Keywords for the Google Search Engine: OpenOffice, sucks.
