hopefully it can be implemented in LibreOffice.
Are you the creator of the patch in the OOo bug? Please then feel free to submit a corresponding patch to LibreOffice! Contributing to LibreOffice is (we hope and feel) much easier, no copyright assignment needed, and it is easy to get commit access to our git repository.
If you are not the creator of the patch, then please contact him/her to consider contributing it to LibreOffice.
Thank you for your reply.
I'll try contacting the creator of the patch.
Hi hmoi and Tor,
Thank you for your interests in the patch.
I am a creator of the patch and willing to contribute it to LibreOffice.
I have quickly read http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/License_Policy
and am not sure if my patch is enough to comply with the policy.
The patch has been developed under the license of OpenOffice.org
I believe people in the open source world can use it without any obstructions.
It is okay for me that anybody uses the patch under LGPL3+/MPL.
Yes, anything that is acceptable into OOo is also acceptable into LibreOffice, license-wise.
Would you be interested in making sure yourself that the patch applies to the LibreOffice source code, and works? (I.e. you would need to build LibreOffice yourself. If you are used to building OOo, building LibreOffice is not harder, on the contrary, we naturally try to make it easier.) I am 99% sure your patch would be accepted into the source code, and that you would get commit access to our repositories, and could enjoy seeing your code contributions actually being used quite quickly compared to the two years your patch has been waiting in the OOo bug...

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Dear bug submitter!
Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.
To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement
Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.
I confirmed that LeftB, LenB, MidB, and RightB are implemented with LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 beta2.
So I will close this issue.
Many thanks for your time and help.
