It would be nice to be able to insert OLE Object (particularly Calc
spreadsheets) "as icon" in writer. It's very convenient for larger spreadsheets,
especially if they're bigger than the wrtier document. It's possible in Ms
Office. With Msword, in .doc, if you click on the icon of an .xls inserted "as
icon", it is edited in a new Excel window. So you can zoom, split, fix the
window... All things unavailable with an inserted Calc spreadsheet in a writer

Sorry, for my awful english.

Inserting objects as icon is currently not supported. Referred to DEV, this can
be implemented earliest for post-OO2.0 era.

This should work the same across the whole suite. I. E. Insert a document OLE
"as icon" in Calc

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