Subject [Bug 120304] Bad alignment inside math matrices

--- Comment #4 from Luc P. <luc.poitras@collegeahuntsic.qc.ca> ---
I surely prefer to use OpenOffice 3.3 and LibreOffice 3.3.4 instead of OO 3.4
or LO 3.5.5 when having to write matrices, which means quite often while
teaching linear algebra.

The syntax was then fairly easy and clear : writing the « alignr » command only
once before the matrix command was enough.
And also that simple with « alignc » and « alignl » if necessary.

Now, with the new versions, would we have to write the alignment commands
erratically with a lot of symbols (`,~," " ) to adjust spacing ? Doesn't it
become "monstruous" and annoying ? I mean, this workaround is not a real
solution : there IS a real bug over there.

I observe regression occurs.
I hope it will be corrected in the next version.
It is an obstacle to convincing my math colleagues to quit Micro$oft for OO or
LO.
And using "old" versions is a risk on security, it seems.

Incidently, the installation of OO 3.4 destroyed my "old" 3.3 version.

After having lost hours of web researches, I finally found the OO 3.3 and the
LO 3.4 versions.
One at http://www.openoffice.org/download/legacy/index.html ,
the other at http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
Don't forget to uninstall OO 3.4 before a clean re-install of OO 3.3.
