Dear Sir,
 We have started using LibreOffice 4.1.1 suite and have encountered
several problems. Please help.
 1. If we open Email attachment (.xls file) directly in Libre Calc
(through file association) it will open as read only. While the same if
opened in MS Excel it opens to a temp folder from where it can be 'Save
As' to folder of choice and the file in temp is deleted. In Librecalc, I
first have to 'Save As' to a folder, open it through Win Explorer.
 2. Filter: Filter By colour not supported.
 3. Print Quality is different in MS Excel Vs Libre Office.
 4. 'Page No' By default display in print page and there is no option to
not display by default. For each sheet you have to set the footer
 5. Problem when we open MS Excel file with cell borders to LibreCalc.  
6. In Writer the page formatting (where there are graphics, tables etc.)
made in Word, gets lost along with the contents and entire Word document
gets disturbed. Very poor quality of document is available.   7. In
Impress same problem as 6 happens. Titles gets heavily disturbed
(misplaced), Simple graphics (which has no relevance to slide format) like
small images gets lost and so does the text, also the text colour changes.
A suggestion is  that id the font is not supported, atleast display the
windows default or the default font could be set in 'Options'). 
 We are grateful for providing such valuable Office Suite but it appears
that LibreOffice is more suitable only for replacing MS Excel and other
Suite products cannot be used as they loose valuable information in
Please reply to the above email id.  
 Thanks and Regards
