    Phoronix: LibreOffice Adds A Command Popup / HUD, Inspired By Half-Decade Old Microsoft Office Feature

    Adding to the changes building up for LibreOffice 7.2 ahead of its debut in August is a "Command Popup" or a heads-up display (HUD) of sorts for easily running LibreOffice commands...

      Canonical's HUD in Unity promised to address the same discoverability problem, universally. I remember it working pretty well in Gimp, not sure about LO; didn't play with it extensively enough. Too bad they were spreading themselves too thin and sort of abandoned their UX research in traditional GTK/GNOME-derived environments.

        I tried to install the latest nightly but my system froze up when I double clicked the installer.

          I would like to read .pages documents from my colleagues.
          But, the LO developers seem to be busy with other stuff...

            From that bug report you can see that it's waiting on a release from a different part of the project.
            I'm not sure what more you want them to do.

              You are right. It's even a lib from the same documentfoundation.org
              So, for more than 1 year they do not manage to put a tag on the lib and check it out in its current state to re-enable the LO .pages support...
              I'm not supposed to like this, or what did you suggest?

                  I think your kind of screwed, but I'm able to install the dev version of it without issue.
                  I have no idea if that fixed the Pages problem (although they say it does). I've never heard of Pages before today.
