Description open_office_user 2007-05-28 10:12:06 UTC
As far as i know, in the german letter template, the sender's address should be
left-aligned and on the top left side of the letter (instead of right-aligned
and on the top right side).

Furthermore you don't write "Betreff:" anymore in the subject. You just write
the subject without this initiatory word.

Please tell us where this is written down.

I agree with you that writing the word "Betreff" is not used anymore, but there
are no rules where to write the senders adress, afaik.
As said in issue 77856 the german standard "DIN 5008" is not a fixed rule. You
can design your letter paper as you like.

OK, when there are no rules, then I'm wrong. But could the "Betreff" be fixed?
