This is a plea for you to transfer the Smartsuite read functionality from Symphony 1.3 into Symphony 3. This is most important to all SmartSuite users - of which I believe there are many, me amongst them .... To be honest I'm saddened it was removed as part of the upgrade from 1.3 to 3.

I agree 100%, why was Smartsuite file recognition dropped, please bring it back, how difficult can it be?

Absolutely essential - since it is almost completely impossible to install both the 1.3 and 3.x versions of SmartSuite.

(Why vendors won't allow users to install a new, legal, version of a product alongside its predecessor baffles me if only because experienced computer users know better than to expect a new version to operate without bugs or problems)

For me, the main reason to use Symphony rather than plain OpenOffice was the ability to open SmartSuite legacy files, bring them up to date, and export them in the OpenOffice format. I suspect the day will come when Windows is not sufficiently backwards compatible to run SmartSuite. Being able to open those files in Symphony would be a very useful thing

Lotus SmartSuite support is probably the ONLY reason I use Symphony, it's a huge mistake when this feature was dropped from v3
