Welcome to OpenDocument

This is the official community gathering place and information resource for the OpenDocument Format (ODF) OASIS Standard (ISO/IEC 26300). Suitable for text, spreadsheets, charts, graphs, presentations, and databases, ODF frees documents from their applications-of-origin, enabling them to be exchanged, retrieved, and edited with any OpenDocument-compliant software or tool. This is a community-driven site, and the public is encouraged to contribute content.

It would be extremely useful to have parameters to save the positioning and size of an OpenDocument format document.

(4 parameters = position horizontal, position vertical, size horizontal, size vertical, preferably in reference to top left corner)

This would be a per-document parameter.

(Excuse me if it already exists, but I couldn't find such parameters in OpenDocument 1.1, nor in 3.0 or previous versions.) Focus Areas: BPEL | DITA | ebXML | IDtrust | OpenDocument | SAML | UBL | UDDI
