    Is the hud going to be fixed for libreoffice in raring?

    The hud doesn't seem to be working for libreoffice, can't get any commands to come up although the icon is on the left of the hud bar.

    Do i have a missing package or is the hud not working consistently with libreoffice at the moment?

    The hud works if i launch writer/calc etc directly from unity but if i click the main libreoffice icon and then choose writer/calc etc the hud doesn't work, does anyone else get this?

    The Hud is not part of my way of working but I did test it during the development of Unity during the 12.10 development cycle.

    Running some tests just now I find that if I type Recent in the HUD it correctly lists some documents in the Libreoffice Recent files list and although I can scroll through this list none of the documents load. This is with Libreoffice 3.6.2.2.

    I do not use the HUD because I have not found it useful.

    I too, had noticed that the main libreoffice window does not have global menus.
    Why it doesn't never bothered me, I feel the main menu is somewhat redundant.
    I feel it to be a waste of time to open the main menu to open writer/calc/otherstuff when I can easily open the specific application directly.
    But yeah, it would be nice to see some consistency in that application.
