Sorry Ron what you find surprising is, to me, expected. Like Chevy and Ford
owners extolling the virtues of their preferred brand.

Presumably AOO is dedicated to improving its product and LO the same.
Portability of settings and features between the two is not going to be a
focus for either.

Having all the good features of both in a single product would be great.
That could never happen because "good feature" is subjective and while a
majority will agree on certain good features other good features will only
be recognized as such by the minorities served by them.

To get the information you need your best result is likely to come by
posting in the forum of the product you're using asking how to import or
otherwise copy your settings. I think responding to Dan's questions would
be heading down the right path.
