Subject Re: [Calc] Feature request: Organizing sheets into tab rows
Date Tue, 29 May 2012 13:56:16 GMT
Hi Tony, hi Dwayne,

your ideas will be likely lost here on the mailing list. Please write an 
enhancement request on Bugzilla and/or join the UX mailing list and/or 
start a collection of wishes on the Wiki.

Perhaps Kevin has a good idea how to make user wishes more visible?

Kind regards
