I'm new to NeoOffice/J even though I've been a somewhat active tester of the OOO betas. I downloaded 0.0.1 today with the printtest4 patch.

I have a 400 MHz iMac DV with 768 RAM and an Epson C60 printer. So far I've only tested with a few documents including a drawing "blueprint" style document.

Display comments:

Lines that display and print as hairline width in OOO are several pixels wide in Neo/J.

Arcs that a appears as a smooth open arc have a straight line connecting the ends of the arc in Neo/J.

Text items which appear perfectly smooth when horizontal become quite grainy edged when rotated 90 degrees.

Slow response but it's Java and I have a 400 Mhz iMac so what can I expect....

Printing issues

When using dimension lines that are vertical, the label text runs sideways on the screen but are horizontal on the printout with the label "ft" located above the number. The labels also overlap the dimension line.

Text labels inside of boxes that print cleanly when horizontal print as overlapped horizontal text when rotated 90 degrees. It should print as rotated text. The text displays on screen correctly but with rough edges when rotated.

As above, partial "open" arcs are closed by a straight line when printed.

Selecting File print and then changing your mind forces you to "Cancel" 3 separate dialog boxes to get back to work.

Printed a long document. Clicked OK to all three dialogs. Neo/J started spooling. Clicked "Cancel". "Printing" dialog when away but Neo/J print progress at bottom of screen continued to progress. Stop sign RED.

Occasionally the "Printing" dialog box would show 2 progress bars and 2 "Cancel" buttons. Not sure which is the real one. (Perhaps too much beer late at night.)

After printing only "page 3 to 3", Neo/J continues to show printing progress bar at bottom and is unresponsive until its done. I saw this mentioned in you printing thread as a known problem.

Nit picks.

Scroll wheel doesn't work.

A Question.....

Does Neo/J work ok in multiple users environments?


Command Keys instead of Control keys.... AWESOME....

I'll be happy to send you the sample document if you like.... Let me know.

Looks like this posting is a duplicate of the posting in the NeoOffice/J Testing forum. Check out that forum for the full thread.
