Description Todd 2011-01-15 13:29:24 UTC
Hi All,

Love the new Libre Office!

Would you consider the following enhancement: When I resize Writer's "file open" dialog box, would you consider remembering the new size, so I do not have to resize it to taste every time I open a file?

Many thanks,

Fixed, or rather I should say "implemented" under 3.5 beta 2.  Thank you!

This does not seem to be working in

I have the "Use LibreOffice dialogs" option switched ON.

The File Open dialog never remembers its position and size, not even within one runtime session.

Also, it would be nice if the "Places" side-pane remembered its size as well.

Please, file a new issue with complete details and steps to reproduce.

This back to Resolved FIXED.

Currently, it remembers the size and position of the last document you closed.  It does not remember what the size and position was of the document you are reopening.

Please DO NOT REOPEN the enhancement of comment 0 was implemented. Document size is set per module--not per document.

New issue--new bug.

But, enhancement for bug 75644 (with its duplicates like bug 93727) remains open against a per document UI size & position--which remains unsupported by ODF, and requires extension of the format.
