While it has been quiet for a while in regards to further development of the Notes2 Module of OpenOffice.org Writer, there is now some nice progress in bugfixing going on.
Oliver Wittman started working on Issue 88070, which will expose notes/comments to the appropriate accessibility tool. This will further strengthen the implementation of the notes as well as of accessibility support in OpenOffice.org.
Caolan McNamara finished working on Issue 98634. Writer will now save comments attached to a recorded change as a regular note when exporting your document to Microsoft Word. Before the fix, these information were lost, as the doc format does not support these change comments.
Next I'll be working on some fixes for the internal layout of the notes itself when working with right-to-left languages to get the same quality there as with left-to-right languages.
I also noticed that the code for the Impress Notes is mostly the same code as the Writer class SwMarginWin and we could clean up and reduce a lot of code there. It would be probably a good thing to make SwMarginWin even more broad and move it to svx. Impress and Writer can then reuse the class from there.
What's your favourite and most annoying notes2 bug? If you have other ideas for improvement, let me know!
