Can you be more specific? The playlist selections works I know this for a fact - But there have been issues in the past with regard to this feature not working on macs using other languages.

When you say it doesn't work, what do you mean? ie… is there a list of playlists to choose from, you select one, and it ignores your selection? Or do you mean that there are no options in the list, or what?

I am pretty sure that I sorted out handling these list names independent of interface language so I am confused. Please provide more information.

ok, I think I understand. Just to be sure, do you mean the entire menu is greyed out and does not respond to mouse clicks, or the options in it are greyed out and do not respond to mouse clicks?

If you could take screen shots it would help. Something like this:

I've been using Go-OO which is an improved-upon build of OpenOffice 3.1.1 with native aqua interface. After installing the newest NeoOffice on Snow Leopard, I noticed immediately that NeoOffice feels LESS Mac-Like and has LESS native GUI gadgets than the Go-OO build of OpenOffice. The NeoOffice build launches a half second faster or so but lacks many features from Go-OO. All of the things that the NeoOffice team point out on their wiki as differentiating themselves from OpenOffice are no longer valid (save a few very minor things that affect only a small number of users), particularly with Go-OO as of version 3.1.1.

I used to be a big fan of NeoOffice, but now its dead. I just don't see any reason to use it rather than Go-OO.

Besides, which, NeoOffice is always at least one major version behind.

Well clearly the project isn't dead. Thats obvious isn't it? By dead, I meant that it no longer serves as much purpose as it used to. My point was simply that NeoOffice offers few features or conveniences that Go-OO does not, and in fact Go-OO offers more including a MORE native interface than NeoOffice, which, is the entire point of NeoOffice - to offer OpenOffice in the native aqua interface. Clearly NeoOffice is far superior to the older builds of OO that ran in X-windows, but the new OO aqua interface (and remember that I am talking about Go-OO, not the standard build of OO) uses more native widgets and controls than NeoOffice does. The only thing it lacks that NeoOffice has are the services menu controls, and native support for localizations..that I can tell anyway.

If you are english speaking, and don't use the services menu, then Go-OO is more modern (3.1.1 rather than 3.0) has nicer icons, runs faster, has cleaner and more native menus, has better spotlight and quicklook plugins, and gets updated less frequently but more significantly (ie up to date with OO but not dozens of patches)

Also Go-OO launches a document launcher type application like the windows OO does and doesn't just assume you want a word processing document every time you open it like NeoOffice does. All of my assertions are based on facts. Not my opinion. Go-OO is quantitatively better as long as you don't need the localizations or the services menu controls.

I'm not sure why you are reacting like what I have said is such an awful thing to say. Its almost like your feelings were hurt. Its not personal, I am simply pointing out to those unaware of the also open-source Go-OO project that there is a better alternative to MS Word than NeoOffice or the standard OO.

So uh… simmer down
