Subject: Re: [office] Clarification for frame formatting property style:flow-with-text


This issue came up for discussion today at the TC call and it was 
suggested that the rest of the TC review the posts and comment.

I have a question about something you say below.

In what way would the suggestion not work for KOffice? (just a pointer 
to the relevant part of KOffice documentation is fine if too long to repeat)

I am also interested in the "fuller feature set" if you have time to 
point to it.

Do you have any suggestions on how the TC can do a better job of 
considering issues raised in KDE discussions?

Hope you are having a great day!
