Hi. Often we are too focused on technical merits of document import from foreign formats. However, often the technical merits are not as relevant as the very shape of document, that is often very poor itself, despite of technically perfect import results. OOo lacks useful features for correcting the badly written documents. And You probably know that situations, when You get such a document and MUST cope with it, edit it and/or forward. Without heavy manual reparing, it is often impossible to do any further editing on such a document. I suggest something, maybe inside Tools menu, that would provide users a tool to comfortably correct the badly written document. Users would love it! I think this could become a huge marketing tool when implemented. I'll provide more detailed sub-tasks as separate issues. For the first approach,as an interface, I'd assume a window similar to deletion window in Calc, where You can choose, which data You wish to delete. The "Bad Document Correction Tool" would allow a window, where user could select one or more "Correction functions". More powerful if there was also some kinda preview window such as in graphical programs, where the user could see the results immediately.

Hi, mru "Enhancement is an improvement to an existing feature. Feature is an addition to the software to add a piece of functionality that does not yet exist." Do You mean such functionality already exists and just needs to be improved? I'd like to see it, thus I could better cooperate with improvements..
