I would like to suggest a new feature to add viewing styles to the View menu that would be remembered across program invocations. The items could be added directly to the View menu, or perhaps into a context menu I suppose (slower but cleaner). A viewing style would be a preset combination of zoom, background color, and font color. Could include other viewing characteristics like window size/shape/position/color. Could include a "view font" which shows all text (or maybe just all default style text) using a different font and font size, just to make it more visible. Could include a centralized LUT style screen brightness and contrast tool in the menu (since my laptop brightness control does not go dark enough I use xbrightness). This function would make OO more accessible, for example you could have a big fat font for people with bad eyesight. You could with a single mouse operation change the way a document is displayed (without changing its actual font) to make it higher contrast or easier on the eyes, or for your mood (it's Christmas). A function key binding option would be nice. The main reason for me is to make it so it doesn't hurt my eyes in the morning or at night. How far could you take this? Welll.. with a function key binding you could immediately render everything invisible (white text on white) or heck even with OpenGL and a nice graphics card show it animated like in the preface to Star Wars. I don't think I need to have a spectrum analyzer graph for my MP3 to run through the text but you could do that, if you didn't have a tendency to get seasick. There are undoubtedly lots of things you could do with this but I think generally the idea of at least one more view, which provides a magnification and contrast improvement, would be a great win for OpenOffice, and my eyes thank you!

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
