An opinion from a regular user: The bracket design NoteAnchor area with different background color looks great. I'm a dedicated user of OO Writer, and would love an anchor area to comment on a block of text. I waste a lot of typing by saying things like "in the previous sentence" or "when you write 'BLOCK OF TEXT' then..." to make my comments clear to my students while using only a single-point note anchor. I'd love to see this functionality integrated into Writer asap, and thanks for all the hard work the team does to make Writer great.

I Concur. Some of the competitors already have text block-based commenting functionality, although what may be an issue in this case is implementation in the actual OpenDocument format. If the current, 1.2 format version does not support this, then it will most likely be in the next, 1.3 format. ODF format changes usually manifest in major OOo releases (1.1 in OOo 2.0, 1.2 in OOo 3.0). My pessimistic view of this is that as desirable as this functionality may be, the actual implementation may be off by one major release cycle and a few years to boot :/. On an optimistic side of all of this, I am thinking of remembering to investigate the status of this functionality further at some point in the future, just to be clear about where the support for block-based commenting in ODF currently stands. -martg 09:29, 20 October 2008 (CEST)
