    thanks for the insights I truly appreciate them. I just realized LibreOffice is in the App store maybe I should switch?

    Yes, switch! OpenOffice gets very little development, whereas there have been huge improvements to LibreOffice. I dislike the app store and download directly, very easy to install. LibreOffice is miles ahead of OpenOffice (and NeoOffice which sadly is stuck using very outdated OpenOffice), including lots of OS X specific fixes.

    For example: ""OpenOffice had only eight commits by four authors vs LibreOffice's 4,434 commits by 106 authors in the last month."
