Description Claudius Ellsel 2016-06-04 09:17:52 UTC
I am missing the functionality of MS Office where a filename is proposed when saving a document for the first time.
Comment 1 V Stuart Foote 2016-06-04 18:38:43 UTC
OK, but not as the default, personally I'm well served by the  "untitled#" pattern as I save a new document.

What ideas do you have regards what would be the source of the suggested file name?
Comment 2 Claudius Ellsel 2016-06-04 21:47:06 UTC
I think that Microsoft Office uses the headline or first words of documents (at least it used to do this).
Comment 3 V Stuart Foote 2016-06-04 23:30:39 UTC
Setting to NEW, but might there be a better way to replace or supplement current default of "untitled#" rather than extracting strings from the document?
Comment 4 Heiko Tietze 2016-06-05 06:15:35 UTC
I'm also fine with a dummy filename. Using text from the document is error-prone and feels encroaching since the text is my private stuff.
Comment 5 Claudius Ellsel 2016-06-05 08:18:09 UTC
I guess here the behaviour of MS Office is described: http://www.howtogeek.com/220794/how-to-change-the-default-file-name-used-when-saving-word-documents/

At least I would suggest the title of the document (If it is set).

Also I'd like at least to have an option to use something from the first paragraph, if no title is set.

Regarding privacy concerns: At first I thought that would be a point. But after thinking a bit about it, I don't see what is concerning about this. LibreOffice already "knows" the whole document you typed in.

well only as option then.
This idea has been proposed before and turned down.
