Description charmwij 2010-03-16 09:48:59 UTC
I use a lot of spreadsheets with filters on them. At work, I use Office Excel, at home trying to convert to 
Open office. When I open the files in Open office, none of my filter settings work and I have to reset them 
again - which does not take long but in the long run would waste a lot of time. Is it possible to integrate 
something to make the transition more seamless?

I'm adding this comment to all open issues with Issue Type == PATCH.  We have 220 such issues, many of them quite old.  I apologize for that.  

We need your help in prioritizing which patches should be integrated into our next release, Apache OpenOffice 4.0.

If you have submitted a patch and think it is applicable for AOO 4.0, please respond with a comment to let us know.

On the other hand, if the patch is no longer relevant, please let us know that as well.

If you have any general questions or want to discuss this further, please send a note to our dev mailing list:  dev@openoffice.apache.org

Thanks!
