OpenOffice.org 3.1 Features, an Early Look

Jan 20, 2009, 17:02 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Andrew Ziem for this link. ]

"Antialiased drawings
"By far, the most requested feature in this release is anti-aliasing, which smooths edges of diagonal lines. On the left is OpenOffice.org 3.0, and the right is OpenOffice.org 3.1. Both images are enlarged to show detail.

"Drawing primitives (including lines, circles, and charts) are antialiased in Calc, Draw, Impress, and Writer. Antialiasing is supported in editing and export modes, but not yet in full-screen mode.

"Solid dragging
"Drawing objects are further improved through the new solid dragging feature. Before only a wireframe was shown; now a 50% transparent copy is painted."
