This page is for tracking any issues that we find during development of the NeoOffice 3.0 Early Access. Once NeoOffice 3.0 Early Access is released, we will record all issues in Bugzilla.


Unfixed issues

  • Possible font cache corruption, see bug 3273
  • NeoOffice 3 installer immediately runs NeoOffice, doesn't let me install a patch first if I have it. Better behaviour would be to ask if NeoOffice should be started.
  • On PowerPC, dlopen() function calls for module libraries (libsw, libsc, etc.) are 10 times slower than in earlier OOo versions
  • Native spellchecker code is not being loaded
  • Dragging within NeoOffice does not work but dragging to or from other apps works
  • Listboxes and comboboxes are clipped
  • Spinners do not render natively
  • Text fields are too small
  • Scrollbar hit testing does not match arrows
  • Attempting to adjust scrollbar by click-dragging thumb will cause thumb of scrollbar to disappear, text to scroll to top
  • Size adjustment handles not appearing on images embedded in Writer documents (e.g. blue square handles to change horizontal/vertical bounds)
  • Tooltip drawing/updates over tables can undo XOR drawing: Create table in writer with multiple rows, select entire table, move mouse over boundary positions just to the left of left table edge to get "Select row" style tooltips, watch XOR get reversed when obscured portion is unnecessarily redrawn
  • Scrolling with scrollbar that causes tooltips to appear for Headings in a Writer document may result in portions of writer document that were obscured by the tooltips from being redrawn properly
  • When opening documents, moving the window while document is opening does not preserve position; window will jump back after documents are opened
  • On PowerPC, icon for media browser extension in toolbar does not display
  • Drawing metrics off for combo boxes; the popup buttons on the right hand side of non-editable combo boxes are a few pixels misaligned to the right and top. Editable seems fine, but not all of the region is updated when going from disabled to enabled (Tools > Options > NeoOffice > Fonts, check/uncheck "Apply Replacement Table")
  • Frame widget types not functioning (see Tools > Options sub panels in the right...the Win95ish panel should be replaced with the native frame widget type, similar to a tab well background) (see Tools > Spelling and Grammar) (also check Tools > Options when selecting the overall hierarchy nodes e.g. Writer as those used to be a separate widget type)
  • Update problems in Extension Manager; simply scroll list, note that not all icons to the left of entries are not always drawn. PowerPC
  • Toolbar icons in Writer that get obscured by tooltips do not redraw properly; portion of icon that was obscured does not get repainted
  • Focus rings for edit fields are not properly erasing...missing forced updates from our previous custom code on losing and gaining focus. See shifting focus in Tools > Options in the panel for entering user name and info...focus rings are not erased when tabbing through edit fields
  • Unusual continual redrawing of document boundary and uneven cursor timer flashing in documents opened from finder if the window is moved prior to final document opening.
  • Frame wells in Templates and Documents are Win95 style, not OS X style. Also see table list in Tools > Options > NeoOffice > Fonts
  • Link to "get more templates online" goes to go-oo.org...probably others for extensions maybe? Redirect to our own site?
  • Redundant separator in Help menu after "Check for Updates"
  • Investigate Tools > Options > NeoOffice > Online Update > Download Updates Automatically...what do we need to do? Change implementation, or remove?
  • Change Thesaurus module to use PRODUCT_NAME (Tools > Options > Language Settings > Writing Aids > Available Language Modules)
  • "Close" button in the popup lightbulb help assistant no longer displays the "X" to close...it's now just an empty well.
  • Media Browser customizations for including NeoOffice Gallery in Photos and Music need to be updated to refer to the new path locations in the tri-level structure breakdown
  • Need to check the online help content displayed by Help > Support to use corrected PRODUCT_NAME and our own support URLs (or redirect Support to open Trinity forums in a browser).
  • List Box wells are Win95 style, not OS X widgets (see Help > NeoOffice Help, both search term list and rendered content area)
  • Extension Manager - installing AltSearch.oxt extension breaks Extension Manager; all buttons greyed out except Help and Close, not possible to select other extensions.
  • Extension Manager - updates to bundled Presentation Minimiser & Presenter Console not possible: 'The extension cannot be installed because: No write permission (shared extension).'

Fixed issues

  • Italic angle in Writer in wrong (fixed in 10/15/2008 test patch)
  • NeoOffice :: About and NeoOffice :: Preferences do not work (fixed in 10/15/2008 test patch)
  • Start Center shows when all documents are closed (fixed in 10/15/2008 test patch)
  • None of the Tools :: Add-ons work (fixed in 10/15/2008 test patch)
  • Splash screen progress bar flickers (fixed in 10/15/2008 test patch)
  • Enable odf-converter for export of Office 2007/2008 files (fixed in 10/21/2008 test build)
  • Upgrade to odf-converter 2.0 code (fixed in 10/21/2008 test build)
  • Crashes when launched by opening a document in the Finder (fixed in 10/21/2008 test build)
  • Exported PDF files have corrupted embedded fonts (fixed in 10/21/2008 test build)
  • Image Capture extension is still not properly loading (10.5 PowerPC), but issues with grammar and media browser service loading are resolved (fixed in 10/21/2008 test build)
