For making formulas or anything having to do with achoring when painting cell ranges, it would be nice if IBM Symphony would anchor range selections, like Symphony for DOS did, by selecting the TAB key instead of having to take ones' hands off the keyboard to specifically paint the range ...
Simple concept. In the DOS version of Symphony, turning the keyboard NUM-LOCK off made the keypad a navigation tool. Home = cell A1, End-Home = the bottom most, right most cell, End-PgDn/PgUp = last or first cell of that column in the spreadsheet, End-ArrowUP/ArrowDn = the last cell of a ...
If you receive a document from a client that has worked in a different Office package that supports Images and other information in the header/footer area, that document will not work as it should. For example I have such a client that has a logo in the header of a ...
Merge to documents and envelopes is a good start. We should be able to merge to labels as well.
This is really importent for people at smaller companies whoi have to generate labels for christmas mailing lists smaller companies
QuickLook will render ODT content on Max OSX. However, it currently doesn't support ODP or ODS.

This is like an idea posted for Notes, but should apply to Symphony, too. When I've got multiple files open in Symphony I want a simple keystroke (such as Ctrl-Tab) to move among the files, rather than having to use the mouse to select which file to work on.
How about duplicating Word's ability to change the case of characters, not just to make the selection all upper case or all lower case, but "title case" (Where The First Letter Of Every Word Is Upper Case) or "sentence case" (Where only the first letter of the selection is made ...
The symphony SDK supports Eclipse 3.4.2. I would like to have it updated for indigo and if possible push it to Eclipse MarketPlace. I would also like more samples and more documentation.
To improve user performance in spreadsheets I suggest the tool:paste ...
could we get the nice slider (as LibreOffice/MS Office today) on the bottom to resize the view ? For me much more handy then this 'old' behavior from Symphony3 today.
you are trying to see two tabs of the same spreadsheet and change data synchronosly
you are trying to copy & paste in a document and can see the result in both places
you can compare slides in a presentation
Since I have many files originally created with e.g WordPro, 1-2-3, Freelance, Smartsuite a tool for mass conversion would be very helpful to migrate from those "old" formats to Symphony / Open Docs (rather than to open/save each file - assuming Symphony supports those file types again).
I would like a widget for symphony which will convert a list of postcodes into Longitude and Latitude co-ordinates so that they can be presented to the google maps api in a KML formatted file.
Converting one postcode is easy, but becomes very time consuming for ...
I continue to use Lotus Word Pro for two reasons, one of which is the use of tabs at the top of the page for sections and divisions.
These make it very easy to switch between document parts (much easier than a master w/ sub-docs) One can easily move ...
Insert copied cells is an old functionality of MS-Office very useful missing in Smartsuite, OpenOffice and Symphony.
You can move some rows o columns in MS-Office in two steps instead of three steps in Symphony.
In MS-Office you can select some rows, then select cut and finally select ...
When you add a graphic or clip art, you can flip it vertically and horizontally. It would be nice to be able to rotate it as well.
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 ...
Currently there is no support for VBA Macro's from MS Word. Even the most simple macro's will not work. Please add this in the new releases :-)
Symphony doesn’t support any OpenType fonts on Linux systems. Migrating OpenOffice 3.2 sources should solve this problem because OpenOffice also didn’t supported *.otf-fonts until version 3.2.
I Lotus Notes there is an option:
Preferences -> Windows and Themes -> "On restart, reopen any tabs that were open when I closed the client".
This is a very good feature in Lotus Notes and I wish that it also would be available in Lotus Symphony 3
