Description sierkb 2008-10-24 18:33:32 UTC
The title says it all: please improve Cocoa integration of OOO into MacOSX and
make it seamless in look and feel.
The whole UI of OpenOffice 3.0 doesn't really fit into the UI environment of
MacOSX Leopard and MacOSX Tiger (what about upcoming Snow Leopard). Please try
to let look and feel it like a real, native Mac application, respecting the
standard colors, backgrounds (the legacy background stripes in the current
"Preferences" dialogue box of OOO on MacOSX look horrible and way out of date),
fonts of the dialogues etc.

Apple folks are very sensitive concerning this OS integration stuff. If an
application doesn't fit seamless ans smooth into their system UI, then they
don't use it, and they prefer using an application that fits better into their
system's UI.
Have a look at Firefox/Camino, these guys of Mozilla got it the right way how to
make it better seamless integrate. :-)
