Description daniel.oconnor 2011-01-30 04:29:34 UTC

"When I save a spreadsheet to CSV, only the active sheet is saved. The first time
I ever did it, I might have cared about the warning, but now I do not.

Please allow me, in a similar fashion to firefox, to elect to never see this
message again via a checkbox. It should, ideally, default to checked."

The dialog show to you just previously covers off much of the warning needed when it asks me if I wish to save in an open document format instead.
That dialog has a 'never show me again' feature.

If any warnings that were needed could be shown at that stage; this would remove one annoyance.

I can verify this behaviour is still a problem with 3.4.4 at the very least.
Comment 3 sasha.libreoffice 2012-04-05 08:23:14 UTC
in checkbox for disabling this warning not added yet
Comment 4 Pablo Beltran 2012-06-19 02:33:15 UTC
Neither fixed in 3.5.4

This more than annoying is a BIG bug: it avoids to transform documents into PDF from batch processes.

I'm not sure I can still reproduce this with LO Version:
Build ID: 09a1e4f36128f64029d45a38d9b059bf11ea0821
TinderBox: MacOSX-x86_64@49-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2015-04-15_23:40:09
Locale: de_

Please add exact reproduce steps for this bug and add a screenshot of the dialog which you do not want to see (or be able to "never show again").

Once the additional info has been provided set this bug back to NEW please.

I can confirm this on
A warning dialog still shows up when saving to CSV from document with multiple sheets with no option to never see it again.

The text is as follows. Title: "LibreOffice"
Message: "Warning saving the document testfile:
Only the active sheet was saved."

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new sheet inside spreadsheet document (so you have at least 2 sheets).
2. File → Save as
3. Pick .csv as file format.
4. Save
5. The annoying dialog shows up.
