Description Unknown 2002-01-09 03:16:33 UTC
I sometimes save documents in SXW format but then need to access them at my high
school, at which software installation is not permitted. Thus, a small
application to view OpenOffice files would be very convenient for me and I'm
sure many others.

I also think we should have an Viewer.

It should be:
- as small as possible
- as fast as possible
- crossplatform
- possible to print from it

The viewer could also have a button like Edit this file to open the current file
in if it is installed on the computer. It should also have a link
to the download page for OOo so that a user can quickly get to the page from
where he can download the full OOo package.

I am using OOo since 2000 as it was StarOffice 5.2. This is a great project
which, on my opinion, is now quite mature to go public! But it focuses on MS O
compatibility rather then to develop its own features in more depth. For the
second scenario to develop it is extremely needed a LIGHTWEIGHT STANDALONE
viewer for ALL OOo document formats, so I don't need anymore to convert my
native documents to some external states, but simply make an attachment of
relevant viewer or even simply provide a link for it.

Moreover, it was a great idea, expressed already here, to provide a link for OOo
website to download a FULL VERSION of OOo suite.

Spread a word of OOo!!! :)

Support this idea!

I also think it should have support for viewing PDF files and be included with
OOo, but also exists as a separate application.

It would be very useful, if you want to present a file quickly and with highest

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
