today link checkbox

today link checkbox located in the dialogue Open Files far away from the main controls (see attach)

I propose to move the box closer to the controls and buttons in dialog

need to move checkbox
Comment 2 Heiko Tietze 2016-07-19 11:08:35 UTC
Agreed. But do we need the checkbox at all? Just don't save, right?

Otherwise: EASYHACK (NEEDINFO for code pointers, if there are some)

LibreOffice dialog --Insert image-- placement of "link" check box

Actually there is some confusion in what is being requested.

The screen clips are of LibreOffice using OS dialogs -- Windows in this case, believe we define the class of the control, but the OS DE places it in the dialog.

Also, this is not for Open file (there is no Link on the open dialog, just Read-only). Rather it is for the Insert -> Image dialog.  That has a checkbox action for "Links" to link to the original image rather than simply embedding it.

Attached is a screen clip of the LibreOffice dialog--where we actually control the layout of the widgets, it adds a preview panel on the right with a "Preview" checkbox to enable it.

So, not sure this is even a valid enhancement request as our dialog is well structured--not clear that we actually can control what the OS DE does with the widget.

True, at least we need an elaborated approach first. But for the read-only checkbox I'm pretty sure it's not inserted from the OS. Anyway, removing the EASYHACK flags for now.

Insert File dialog in Draw

Only Writer has the "link"-checkbox far at the left side. The insert image dialog in Draw, Impress and Calc has the checkbox near to the "open" button. Therefore I guess, that tweaking the dialog in Writer is possible. I have used LibreOffice with OS dialog of Windows 7, 32 bit.

Yup, correct as usual! Thanks Regina for keeping us honest :-)
