It could be useful if OpenOffice allowed for the creation of pyramid charts, like this, http://snipurl.com/8olw-mq4201 . This function would be a valuable enhancement to OpenOffice's charting capabilities.

The pyramid chart and other organization charts are missing features that need to be offered by the presentation. They are not related to spreadsheet data but instead some kind of special shapes. ->CL: Please take over handling this Issue as it is an impress task. Thanks.

Hi, at http://Eseri.com/ we have integrated a full FOSS organization in a box to help FOSS compete with Microsoft across the board. We have not encountered any need for the Pyramid chart feature. However our experience is that the lack of an Organization Chart capability in Impress, and compatibility with the PowerPoint version of this feature, to be the number one issue holding back wide-spread customer embrace of OpenOffice. More info: While Writer and Calc compatibility with MS Office is now very good, greatly moving it forward as a suite that can interoperate without risk, Impress compatibility with Powerpoint is much less solid. Business users of MS Office use PowerPoint a lot, and often create organization charts with its builtin tool, found under Insert / Picture / Organization Chart. These organization charts do not come across to Impress - the lines get reformatted all over the place - and they cannot be edited and sent back to an MS Office user. (I'd be glad to provide example files, and/or provide any other examples requested on Impress / PPT compatibility in general.) The reasons the Powerpoint Org Chart tool is so useful is mainly two-fold: 1. The automated layout capability is an order of magnitude more convenient than manually creating and then editing a chart in any drawing package. You can select a branch, and automatically change with one click the layout of the whole branch or entire chart to right-side, left-side, or standard layout. All alignment is automatically taken care of. Very useful. 2. You can also select a branch and drag it in entirety to another node of the org chart, and the entire branch moves with all alignment against the rest of the chart, and the rest of the chart moved around to make room, again automatically so everything is equally spaced and aligned. I don't downplay the effort to replicate this or make it work seamlessly with a PowerPoint org chart that has been imported. Our input is simply that both of these - replication and compatibility - are very significant issues, and addressing them would go a very, very long way to enabling the majority of users to move from MS Office to OpenOffice without any barrier, trouble, or risk on the presentation software side. Embrace and replace! We request that the urgency of this issue be raised and addressed as a priority issue. Cheers, Bill Stewart Eseri CEO
