Description amanita+LIBREOFFICE 2023-01-23 17:48:28 UTC
Restoring documents is useful, but takes lots of time.

Having an "always restore" button would be nice, but way more important would be to just remove the "ready" ("fertig" in German) button after restoring the documents. There are literally no changes you can add afterwards, just click it. Its unnessecary and slows down boot.

So just
1. Documents weren't saved properly
2. You start Libreoffice
3. you get the "do you want to restore documents?" Dialog
4. You click on restore, they restore
5. The window closes and the apps start

Hi, thanks for reporting!

Do you mean the "Finish" button in this dialog?

Just to see if I understood correctly, after the user clicks "Recover Selected" you'd like the next screen to simply be skipped, right?

I believe the reason this "Finish" button exists is to allow the user to see the recovery status of all files. Maybe we could change the behavior a bit, so that if all files were recovered successfully, then the "Finish" state is skipped.

Hi, yes I mean that button.

The reason sounds legit and I think the solution would fit perfectly.

But isnt there a different button shown anyway, if the restore failed?

No further opinion, let's follow Rafael's suggestion. Perhaps with a delay of 500ms to get at least a quick feedback of the success.

Bug 103607 suggests removing this completely for the case of a single document.

If it's agreed we should remove it altogether - we should probably fold one of the bugs into the other.

What do you think?
