for iAccessible2</h3><p>OpenOffice 4.1 Windows version integrates IAccessible2
support
  and drops the legacy Java access bridge, offering better integration with top screen readers
such as JAWS and NVDA. This feature will activate automatically when MSAA/IA2 compatible screen
reader is running. Numerous accessibility enhancements and bug fixes are delivered in Writer,
Impress, and Calc.  OpenOffice 4.1 brings a much better user experience for Windows users
with visual impairments than previous versions.</p><h2 id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-Improvements/Enhancements">Improvements/Enhancements</h2><h3
id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-In-placeeditingofInputFields">In-place editing of Input Fields</h3><p>In
Writer the user experience for editing Input Fields has been improved.</p><p>The
user can now modify the content of an Input Field directly in the document's text area - no
additional dialog is needed. When traveling with the cursor into an Input Field the users
gets feedback about Entering and Leaving the Input Field. A bounding rectangle is drawn around
the Input Field when the cu
 rsor is inside the Input Field - see following illustration.</p><p><img class="confluence-embedded-image"
width="900" confluence-query-params="effects=drop-shadow" src="attachments/31822142/39190655.png?effects=drop-shadow"
data-image-src="attachments/31822142/39190655.png?effects=drop-shadow"><br />When
the cursor is inside an Input Field the user can navigate to the next or the previous Input
Field using the TAB-key respectively the SHIFT-TAB-Key - similar to the navigation from one
cell to another cell inside a table. To insert a TAB-character into an Input Field CTRL-TAB-key
has to be used.</p><p>In read-only text documents the user can still edit the
existing Input Fields and navigate from one Input Field to the other. Also the field shadings
are visible for Input Fields in read-only text documents.</p><p>Input Fields can
only contain text without formatting. Accordingly, the corresponding edit and insert actions
for Input Fields are restricted and character formattings are app
 lied to the complete Input Field. This means no change compared to former OpenOffice versions.</p><p>Further
details on this user experience improvement are given in the project's wiki - see <a href="https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Writer/Input_Fields"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">In-place editing of Input Fields</a></p><h3
id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-InteractiveCropFeature">Interactive Crop Feature</h3><p>The
Interactive Crop feature for selected Graphic Objects in Draw/Impress allows intuitive cropping
of Graphic Object content. However, it previously only worked flawlessly when the object was
not transformed, except being translated and scaled. For AOO 4.0 a preview of the crop was
already added.  For AOO 4.1 the interactive cropping will now work in combination with
all possible Graphic Object transformations.  If your Graphic Object is rotated, sheared,
mirrored in X and/or Y, it can now be interactively cropped flawlessly. Also the cropped result
will be correct now 
 in all combinations of transformations and all possible graphic contents (pixel graphics,
metafiles, SVG, ...) in all exports (Print, PDF Export, ...).</p><p><img class="confluence-embedded-image"
src="attachments/31822142/40009829.png" data-image-src="attachments/31822142/40009829.png"></p><p>The
example shows a rotated and sheared Graphic Object that gets interactively cropped to show
only a part of the world map.</p><h3 id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-ImportPicturefromFileandDrag&amp;DropofGraphicData">Import
Picture from File and Drag &amp; Drop of Graphic Data</h3><p>Importing Picture/Graphic
Data from File and Drag &amp; Drop of that data has been enhanced and unified for all
situations and all Applications of AOO 4.1. The main goal was to make the re-use of existing
documents or copy/paste of single pages easier by allowing simpler replacement of the content
of existing Graphic Objects. You can now, for example, copy/paste Slides and easily replace
the graphic content of Graphic Objec
 ts without changing their Position or Orientation. This is also possible for Writer Graphic
Objects, so e.g., copy/paste Pages in Writer containing Graphic Objects or copying Pages from
another Document and then replace the Pictures.</p><p>The following actions work
the same in all AOO 4.1 Applications:</p><p>For using the Import Picture from
File Dialog:</p><ul><li>If no Graphic Object is selected, a new one will
be inserted at Cursor position (as usual)</li><li>If a Graphic Object is selected,
its content will be replaced without changing the Position or Orientation</li><li>If
a Draw Object is selected, the new Graphic content will be used as Graphic FillStyle for that
Object</li><li>Selecting the 'Link' feature in the Dialog will create a linked
Graphic Object in the first two cases</li></ul><p>For Drag &amp; Drop:</p><ul><li>If
there is no Graphic Object at the drop position, a new one will be inserted there (as usual)</li><li>If
there is a Graphic Object at the drop position, i
 ts content will be replaced without changing the Position or Orientation</li><li>If
there is a Draw Object at the drop position, the new Graphic content will be used as Graphic
FillStyle for that Object</li><li>Pressing CTRL+SHIFT will create a linked Graphic
Object in the first two cases</li></ul><p>This was an enhancement request
to make re-usage of existing Graphic Objects easier - the problem was that the user had to
insert a new Graphic Object, note the Position and Size of the old one and apply this to the
new one to cleanly replace the old Graphic Object. Thanks for requesting that enhancement
in AOO Bugzilla!</p><h3 id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-Load/Importof3DChartsimproved">Load/Import
of 3D Charts improved</h3><p>There was a performance problem when Documents with
big 3D charts were Loaded (own Formats) or Imported (external Formats). That issue was located
in the creation of a huge amount of 3D Objects for Chart visualization. This has been improved.
For example; an example doc
 ument (External with a huge Chart containing 100x100x5 vertical 3D Data Boxes) could not
be imported at all. It can now be loaded in seconds and looks like this:</p><p><img
class="confluence-embedded-image" src="attachments/31822142/40009830.png" data-image-src="attachments/31822142/40009830.png"></p><p>This
improvement allows to work with much bigger 3D Charts in AOO 4.1.</p><h3 id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-ImprovedGraphicModifications/FiltersforVectorGraphics">Improved
Graphic Modifications/Filters for Vector Graphics</h3><p>When applying Modifications
and/or Filters to Graphic Objects the change was often applied by internally changing the
Vector Graphic (SVG or Metafile) to a Pixel-Based variant. This makes the advantages of Vector
Graphics vanish and often results in bad output quality for Print and PDF export. Also the
handling of Graphic Objects varied between Writer and other AOO Applications in this aspect.
This has been internally unified so that all usages of Vector Data in Gra
 phic Objects are equally improved for this aspect and in the future.</p><p>It
is not possible to enhance all modifications AOO offers to GraphicObjects to Vector Graphics
in this way, but many were improved. Vector Graphics will stay enhanced when applying the
following modifications:</p><ul><li>Gray scale</li><li>Black/White</li><li>Watermark</li><li>Transparency
(additional, 0% to 100%)</li><li>Red/Green/Blue modification (-100% to 100%)</li><li>Brightness
(-100% to 100%)</li><li>Contrast (-100% to 100%)</li><li>Gamma Correction
(0.10 to 10)</li></ul><p>This also works for all combinations of the above
modifications. This enhancement is already visible in the Edit Views, but its main goal is
to increase Print and PDF export quality (and other exports that can keep Vector Data) when
working with Vector Graphic content accordingly. Here is an example from the Edit Views (Left:
AOO 4.0.1, Right: AOO 4.1). It's the same SVG graphic modified to Grayscale:</p><p><img
class="confluence-e
 mbedded-image" src="attachments/31822142/40009831.png" data-image-src="attachments/31822142/40009831.png"></p><h3
id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-KeeporiginalGraphicDatawheneverpossible">Keep original Graphic Data
when ever possible</h3><p>Previous versions of AOO eventually modified the type
of inserted Graphic Data, for example inserted JPEG files were in some scenarios saved as
PNG in the created ODF files. These scenarios were different for the different AOO Applications
since it was not handled the same internally. This has been improved so that AOO 4.1 handles
this equal in all Applications and tries to always keep your inserted original Graphic Data
when possible. This gives advantages for the file size of the created ODF Files, but also
for the Image quality. There were scenarios in which JPEG files were recoded to JPEG which
will in no case improve the image quality but has the potential to lower it.</p><p>This
works for BMP, JPEG, PNG and GIF for pixel-oriented graphics. It is also
  in place for Vector-based Graphics like SVG and Metafiles.</p><h3 id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-ClipboardenhancementsforGraphicContent">Clipboard
enhancements for Graphic Content</h3><p>The Clipboard support for exchange of
PNG is further improved, so that Pixel-based Graphic modification cycles (e.g. copying graphic
content to an external Application, modifying it and copying it back to AOO 4.1) will work
better with more external Image Editors of your choice. Broader support for PNG means that
transparency in Pixel-based graphics will be preserved in more places. Did you know that you
can copy any Graphic Object from AOO 4.1 to the clipboard and paste it to any external Image
editor of your choice to modify them and copy them back?</p><p> </p><h3

id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-SeamonkeyreplacedbyNSS(&quot;NetworkSecurityServices&quot;)">Seamonkey
replaced by NSS (&quot;Network Security Services&quo
 t;)</h4><p>Outdated code from Mozilla that was used to include cryptography services
and address book access has been replaced with the more modern and more secure NSS libraries.
This greatly simplifies the build process and source code maintenance and is transparent to
end users in general.</p><p>End users are affected only in the following ways:</p><ul><li>Under
Windows XP,  adding the Windows Address Book as an OpenOffice database is no longer supported;
this has always been the case on any newer Windows versions (Windows Vista, Windows 7 and
Windows 8).</li></ul><ul><li>Thunderbird users will not see direct
Thunderbird address book support in OpenOffice's address book wizard, but the OpenOffice support
for CSV can replace it for now. Users can use Thunderbird's Tools-&gt;Export-&gt;AsCsv
functionality to get their address book as comma separated text.</li></ul><ul><li>Authenticated
LDAP access is now unsupported (the non-authenticated access was already unsupported).</li></ul

for iAccessible2</h3><p>OpenOffice 4.1 Windows version integrates IAccessible2
support and drops the legacy Java access bridge, offering better integration with top screen
readers such as JAWS and NVDA. This feature will activate automatically when MSAA/IA2 compatible
screen reader is running. Numerous accessibility enhancements and bug fixes are delivered
in Writer, Impress, and Calc.  OpenOffice 4.1 brings a much better user experience for
Windows users with visual impairments than previous versions.</p><h2 id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-Improvements/Enhancements">Improvements/Enhancements</h2><h3
id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-In-placeeditingofInputFields">In-place editing of Input Fields</h3><p>In
Writer the user experience for editing Input Fields has been improved.</p><p>The
user can now modify the content of an Input Field directly in the document's text area - no
additional dialo
 g is needed. When traveling with the cursor into an Input Field the users gets feedback about
Entering and Leaving the Input Field. A bounding rectangle is drawn around the Input Field
when the cursor is inside the Input Field - see following illustration.</p><p><img
class="confluence-embedded-image" width="900" confluence-query-params="effects=drop-shadow"
src="attachments/31822142/39190655.png?effects=drop-shadow" data-image-src="attachments/31822142/39190655.png?effects=drop-shadow"><br
/>When the cursor is inside an Input Field the user can navigate to the next or the previous
Input Field using the TAB-key respectively the SHIFT-TAB-Key - similar to the navigation from
one cell to another cell inside a table. To insert a TAB-character into an Input Field CTRL-TAB-key
has to be used.</p><p>In read-only text documents the user can still edit the
existing Input Fields and navigate from one Input Field to the other. Also the field shadings
are visible for Input Fields in read-only t
 ext documents.</p><p>Input Fields can only contain text without formatting. Accordingly,
the corresponding edit and insert actions for Input Fields are restricted and character formattings
are applied to the complete Input Field. This means no change compared to former OpenOffice
versions.</p><p>Further details on this user experience improvement are given
in the project's wiki - see <a href="https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Writer/Input_Fields"

id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-InteractiveCropFeature">Interactive Crop Feature</h3><p>The
Interactive Crop feature for selected Graphic Objects in Draw/Impress allows intuitive cropping
of Graphic Object content. However, it previously only worked flawlessly when the object was
not transformed, except being translated and scaled. For AOO 4.0 a preview of the crop was
already added.  For AOO 4.1 the interactive cropping will now work in combination with
all possible 
 Graphic Object transformations.  If your Graphic Object is rotated, sheared, mirrored
in X and/or Y, it can now be interactively cropped flawlessly. Also the cropped result will
be correct now in all combinations of transformations and all possible graphic contents (pixel
graphics, metafiles, SVG, ...) in all exports (Print, PDF Export, ...).</p><p><img
class="confluence-embedded-image" src="attachments/31822142/40009829.png" data-image-src="attachments/31822142/40009829.png"></p><p>The
example shows a rotated and sheared Graphic Object that gets interactively cropped to show
only a part of the world map.</p><h3 id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-ImportPicturefromFileandDrag&amp;DropofGraphicData">Import
Picture from File and Drag &amp; Drop of Graphic Data</h3><p>Importing Picture/Graphic
Data from File and Drag &amp; Drop of that data has been enhanced and unified for all
situations and all Applications of AOO 4.1. The main goal was to make the re-use of existing
documents or copy/paste of
  single pages easier by allowing simpler replacement of the content of existing Graphic Objects.
You can now, for example, copy/paste Slides and easily replace the graphic content of Graphic
Objects without changing their Position or Orientation. This is also possible for Writer Graphic
Objects, so e.g., copy/paste Pages in Writer containing Graphic Objects or copying Pages from
another Document and then replace the Pictures.</p><p>The following actions work
the same in all AOO 4.1 Applications:</p><p>For using the Import Picture from
File Dialog:</p><ul><li>If no Graphic Object is selected, a new one will
be inserted at Cursor position (as usual)</li><li>If a Graphic Object is selected,
its content will be replaced without changing the Position or Orientation</li><li>If
a Draw Object is selected, the new Graphic content will be used as Graphic FillStyle for that
Object</li><li>Selecting the 'Link' feature in the Dialog will create a linked
Graphic Object in the first two cases</li>
 </ul><p>For Drag &amp; Drop:</p><ul><li>If there is no
Graphic Object at the drop position, a new one will be inserted there (as usual)</li><li>If
there is a Graphic Object at the drop position, its content will be replaced without changing
the Position or Orientation</li><li>If there is a Draw Object at the drop position,
the new Graphic content will be used as Graphic FillStyle for that Object</li><li>Pressing
CTRL+SHIFT will create a linked Graphic Object in the first two cases</li></ul><p>This
was an enhancement request to make re-usage of existing Graphic Objects easier - the problem
was that the user had to insert a new Graphic Object, note the Position and Size of the old
one and apply this to the new one to cleanly replace the old Graphic Object. Thanks for requesting
that enhancement in AOO Bugzilla!</p><h3 id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-Load/Importof3DChartsimproved">Load/Import
of 3D Charts improved</h3><p>There was a performance problem when Documents with
big 3D charts were Loa
 ded (own Formats) or Imported (external Formats). That issue was located in the creation
of a huge amount of 3D Objects for Chart visualization. This has been improved. For example;
an example document (External with a huge Chart containing 100x100x5 vertical 3D Data Boxes)
could not be imported at all. It can now be loaded in seconds and looks like this:</p><p><img
class="confluence-embedded-image" src="attachments/31822142/40009830.png" data-image-src="attachments/31822142/40009830.png"></p><p>This
improvement allows to work with much bigger 3D Charts in AOO 4.1.</p><h3 id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-ImprovedGraphicModifications/FiltersforVectorGraphics">Improved
Graphic Modifications/Filters for Vector Graphics</h3><p>When applying Modifications
and/or Filters to Graphic Objects the change was often applied by internally changing the
Vector Graphic (SVG or Metafile) to a Pixel-Based variant. This makes the advantages of Vector
Graphics vanish and often results in bad output quality for P
 rint and PDF export. Also the handling of Graphic Objects varied between Writer and other
AOO Applications in this aspect. This has been internally unified so that all usages of Vector
Data in Graphic Objects are equally improved for this aspect and in the future.</p><p>It
is not possible to enhance all modifications AOO offers to GraphicObjects to Vector Graphics
in this way, but many were improved. Vector Graphics will stay enhanced when applying the
following modifications:</p><ul><li>Gray scale</li><li>Black/White</li><li>Watermark</li><li>Transparency
(additional, 0% to 100%)</li><li>Red/Green/Blue modification (-100% to 100%)</li><li>Brightness
(-100% to 100%)</li><li>Contrast (-100% to 100%)</li><li>Gamma Correction
(0.10 to 10)</li></ul><p>This also works for all combinations of the above
modifications. This enhancement is already visible in the Edit Views, but its main goal is
to increase Print and PDF export quality (and other exports that can keep Vector Data) when
workin
 g with Vector Graphic content accordingly. Here is an example from the Edit Views (Left:
AOO 4.0.1, Right: AOO 4.1). It's the same SVG graphic modified to Grayscale:</p><p><img
class="confluence-embedded-image" src="attachments/31822142/40009831.png" data-image-src="attachments/31822142/40009831.png"></p><h3
id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-KeeporiginalGraphicDatawheneverpossible">Keep original Graphic Data
when ever possible</h3><p>Previous versions of AOO eventually modified the type
of inserted Graphic Data, for example inserted JPEG files were in some scenarios saved as
PNG in the created ODF files. These scenarios were different for the different AOO Applications
since it was not handled the same internally. This has been improved so that AOO 4.1 handles
this equal in all Applications and tries to always keep your inserted original Graphic Data
when possible. This gives advantages for the file size of the created ODF Files, but also
for the Image quality. There were scenarios in which JP
 EG files were recoded to JPEG which will in no case improve the image quality but has the
potential to lower it.</p><p>This works for BMP, JPEG, PNG and GIF for pixel-oriented
graphics. It is also in place for Vector-based Graphics like SVG and Metafiles.</p><h3
id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-ClipboardenhancementsforGraphicContent">Clipboard enhancements for
Graphic Content</h3><p>The Clipboard support for exchange of PNG is further improved,
so that Pixel-based Graphic modification cycles (e.g. copying graphic content to an external
Application, modifying it and copying it back to AOO 4.1) will work better with more external
Image Editors of your choice. Broader support for PNG means that transparency in Pixel-based
graphics will be preserved in more places. Did you know that you can copy any Graphic Object
from AOO 4.1 to the clipboard and paste it to any external Image editor of your choice to
modify them and copy them back?</p><p> </p><h3 id="AOO4.1ReleaseNotes-OtherImprovements/Enha
