    Shortcomings of libreoffice


    This may be controversial but I'm not happy with LibreOffice, especially the 'Base' Database software.

    I have logged posts over the years asking for hyperlink field types, and am told that this is not possible because of the database engine used.

    There are complex workaround, but I just want to be able to move away from Microsoft Access and have a simple field type I can use.

    Does anyone have any views on this or alternatives?

    Also, whilst I know it is all about usability, I do feel disappointed with the lack of work on the 'look and feel'. I spend a lot of time working to convince people of the benefits of Open Source, but I do find office applications a major let down.

    Many thanks
