Description betzelelgalut 2010-04-08 05:44:49 UTC
i am wanting to know who i would talk to in the openoffice community about some
requests for Hebrew / Arabic language functionality in open office.

what i am looking for is to have a option to place a button on the menu bar that
will switch typing directions from left > right to right > left. this way
instead of placing the curser on the right side of the screen, while it still
types in the left to right direction; have it actually move the curser from
right to left while typing.   also it would be good to put in a mini
multi-language on screen keyboard option - similar to DavkaWriter. this way
anyone who did not have a Hebrew letter keyboard could use the mouse to select
the letters.

i need the functionality in both writer and impress in order to create
multimedia presentations in Hebrew and English.

any advice of who i could talk to about this would be great. i think that those
options would save everyone alot of heart ache and make life easier. if the
developers need, i can provide screen shots of DavkaWriter and Mellel2 to show
what i am talking about.
