    I like the changes for Calligra and the emphasis on typical end users. There is one shortcoming in Tables that particularly affects those who use Tables for accounting and financial analysis. The lack of an “accounting” cell format where the currency symbol is left aligned in a cell and the value is right aligned in the same cell.
    € 23.20 € 23.20 The left is the accounting format while the right is the currency format the
    € 4,523.00 € 4,523.00 only financial format currently in Tables.
    € 652.30 € 652.30 All financial and accounting statements are presented in the accounting
    € 5,198.50 € 5,198.50 format. There is great deal of difference in the”presentation” factor for end users. As someone who uses this format on a regular basis it means that tables is not useable by anyone in the financial industry. Libre Office & OOo also have this same problem. The only Linux spreadsheet that is has this format and is useable is Gnumeric. While it might be a little late to see this added in 2.4 it would be greatly appreciated if it could appear in future versions. It is a major useability issue for many typical users who are heavy users of spreadsheets on a daily basis..

    Some questions…

    Will text be able to flow on both sides of a photo/drawing/graph in C Words?
    Will there be a windows installer available?
