What features would you like to see added to Lotus Symphony for Mac OS X?
As a Symphony user on Mac OS X, I would like to see Symphony provide these features in the future.
1, Support of Services menu
Services are features exported by applications for the benefit of other applications. The Services menu can be found in every application’s application menu. It would be very convenient if Symphony can access services provided by other applications. For example, a user can select a paragraph from a document and get it read out through speech services. or select some content in a document and make a new sticky note by pressing Command+Shift+Y.
2, Support of Spotlight search for Symphony documents
Spotlight is a very powerful desktop search technology on Mac OS X. It would be very useful for document management if a user can search for Symphony documents by their contents. This has been supported by OpenOffice.org
3, Support of Apple Script
AppleScript is a scripting language that provides direct control of scriptable applications and scriptable parts of the Mac OS. It is the fundamental technology to perform repetitive tasks, automate complex workflows, control applications on local or remote computers on Mac. If Symphony is a scriptable application, a user can automate document functions with Symphony easily.
4, Support of quick look for .odp and .ods files.
Quick Look is a feature of Mac OS X introduced in version 10.5 that makes it possible for users to quickly discover the contents of listed documents, both as thumbnail images and as full-size preview images, without requiring the launch of a document’s application. Currently, odt file(oasis-open.opendocument.text) is supported by quick look. It is compatible with Symphony Text document. Quick look support for other Symphony document types are also very useful.
