Do you remember the hot discussion about "Ribbon" or "not Ribbon"?

OpenOffice can use the dialog of the operating system or its own dialogs.
Which of the dialogs do you use? What is your operating system?

If you refer to its own dialogs, there is no change. These dialogs in 
AOO4.0.1 are the same as in older versions. But you will surely have not 
the same operating system than 14 years ago.

More details are needed, see above. Then we can surely help you to 
customize OpenOffice to your needs.
