      I know that drag and drop is the easiest method of positioning, but
      if I know where I want a picture on the page, I use the
      Tools:Graphic:Options menu (nb. the graphic has to be selected.Then I
      place it precisely by reference to a page or paragraph).

      Message 2 of 21 , Jan 2, 2006

        Product Description:
        NeoOffice is a fully-featured set of office applications (including
        word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, and drawing programs) for
        Mac OS X. Based on the OpenOffice.org office suite, NeoOffice
        incorporates dozens of native Mac features and can import, edit, and
        exchange files with other popular office programs such as Microsoft
        Office. Unlike the Mac OS X release of OpenOffice.org, NeoOffice does
        not require the X11 windowing system.

        Released as free, open-source software under the GNU General Public
        License (GPL), NeoOffice is fully functional and stable enough for
        everyday use. The software is actively developed, and updates and
        improvements are available on a regular basis.
        What's new in this version:
        * Better support for multiple monitors
        * Additional improvements in font handling and text layout
        * Significantly improved import of WordPerfect for
        Macintosh documents via libwpd-0.8.4
        * Fixes for many additional bugs reported against 1.2 Alpha
        * Requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later
        * For a more complete list of changes since NeoOffice/J
        1.1, see the release notes.

          There have been no *additional* improvements to the WP-Mac import since NeoOffice 1.2 Alpha with Patch-5 (roughly my post at <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wordperfectmac/message/2333>), for the curious--but the app is now a Beta, for those who find Alpha milestones unpalatable :-)

          I hear a new AbiWord stable release is due soon, but I don't know if it includes libwpd-0.8.4 or not....

            was the Alpha.
