"Forename/Surname/initials:" is useless.
Why can't it be renamed to "Name:" and only have one textbox for the three things above?
We definitely couldnt combine the three, but it is possible to combine the Forename and Surname fields. Word, WPS, Wordperfect, and Calligra combine them while Softmaker doesn't.
Dont see much benefit in doing this, as it would require additional translation work for no real benefit. So wontfix for me.
Heiko, Stuart, Adolfo: Thoughts?

Well, the other day I was testing 6.0 alpha 1 and I no longer knew if the first name was a "surname" or a "forename".
I know it is silly... but if we could just have one field named "Name:" it would be easier for everyone to understand and fill.
How hard it is to translate one word?
This was already attempted, and there was user outcry.
Agree with the WONTFIX... diametric to bug 105841 reverting where Tor had already had a go at this.
As Regina pointed out, split name is required by ODF 1.2
