Subject Confusion between Macs and the rest of the world?
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2012 08:34:17 GMT
In most implementations of OpenOffice the configuration information is accessed through /Tools
/Options. On a Mac, this information is accessible through Preferences.  This other path causes
great confusion for Mac users when the problem advisor does not notice the use of the different
operating system.  

Is there any reason why Macs use that path, and would it be possible to use the conventional
/Tools /Options path on new builds, instead of, or as well as, the usual Preferences path
on Macs?
