I am using version 2.2.1 of OpenOffice.org. My problem is:

I think it'd better to improve OpenOffice on the following features.


1. The pages' view design is not good. In OpenOffice, no matter what page display scale, the first page always aligns on the left of the workspace and the next page to its right if the width of workspace is enough to contain them or under it when the width only can accept one page. The design has no problem in the former case but some bad view effect in the latter case. When the width of workspace just allows one page display in the horizontal and the page can not occupy the width thoroughly, what will happen? All the pages align on the left of the window but there is a ugly blank area to the right of the pages. It is a bad display effect in optical art. So I think it'd better to design the pages to align on the middle in the horizontal in the latter case.

2. In OpenOffice.org 2.2.1, we can change the pages' background color through the menu File\Page setting... But when change the background color to bule in this way, what we get? the central area of the pages turn to blue but the margin of the pages still keep white. If I need to change the whole page's background color, how can I do? In fact, usually we wanna change the whole page's background color not just the central area.

3. In the menu [Tools] , there is a media player. we can preview a multimedia file with it and then apply the file into the document if it is suitable. but the media player just allow to play a single file, namely it dosen't support play more than one file continuously with a open event. It a pity when we need preview many files that in the same directory continuously then apply a suitabe one into the document. I think it'd better to improve it in this aspect.

That's all

sincerely

This is user to user forum here. No developer. If you want to submit such ideas, you should go to the QA page, you can file a bug report see here : Rough step-by-step instructions reporting bugs. Make sure it has not been submitted already.

This has been discussed many times already here (don't forget to search the forum before posting). This will be implemented in the next release (2.3) in September.

There is a workaround (setting the page margins to 0 and using the indent configuration for paragraphs). You should subscribe and vote for the related request : Issue 44935 - Enhanced Page Background formatting.

No idea for your 3rd question but I guess a search should give some hints.
