Just wondering if we will all have to wait 6 months to get Global Menu support in LibreOffice?

It'd be nice if Ubuntu made one exception and updated LibreOffice to 3.4 so we could get Global Menus for it.

is buggy and doesn't always work. Has 4 open bugs last I checked. – Sam May 11 '11 at 21:33
True; it's a good thing you pointed that out. However, the original poster seemed quite eager to have such a function, and it's quite usable in my experience, so this is probably the best solution at this point. – Mandy May 11 '11 at 21:40
dang, too slow, beat me to it – Dorkus1218 May 11 '11 at 21:43
