I have noticed the emails about Open Office v2.0.4 causing problems. 
That is the version that I have so now I am worried. I have not so far 
had cause to use it much so I have been OK so far.

I am using Kubuntu Edgy.

I noted one suggestion to use Abiword instead. Well, I would be quite 
happy to use that except for one thing. I followed the instructions 
carefully for changing the default stylesheet but it has had no effect. 
At the moment when I start Abiword it comes us with the wrong dictionary 
and the wrong font. That is all I want to change. I know that I could 
change it manually every time but I refuse to do that when there is 
supposed to be a way to set it up automatically.

The worst part for me is the default font. I will never, never use Times 
New Roman. As I said I have followed the instructions carefully to 
change the defaults but my changes are ignored.

Has anyone else had this problem? I used to use Abiword years ago and I 
quite liked it then. I would be very pleased to use it again if I can 
get this sorted.
