Why moving away some  functionality, (who will finaly been forgotten) on 
a sub-menu (they are invented for this purpose, no ? )

Sorry, i do not see any benefit in hiding, removing some functionality ?

Yes we can add some sound video content to our writer Documents, but 
this is useless, because the Sound and Video are consumed on the net 
(HTML5) and on the Ipads (Epub and/or PDF). We must  sea Writer as a " 
one stop tool" to produce multi-media content . In the begining we made 
our HTML from in Writer, later  we could make some interactive PDF's , 
now we have to make Epub, and HTML5 to keep up with the latest 
multi-media developements.

Thanks,  you can help to convince our developers to make it posible to 
Export writer documents to PDF, Epub and HTML5 with Sound and Video
