Description andréb 2011-06-07 20:42:59 UTC
Currently each document of a particular type (e.g. calc, writer) is loaded in the last position and size used when a document of that type was saved.

i.e., a calc document is loaded in the last position and size used when saving a calc document.

It would be much more convenient if a particular document were loaded in the last position and size used when that specific document was saved.

e.g. Document A loaded in the last position and size used when document A was saved; document B loaded in the last position and size used when document B was saved, etc.

This is particularly useful with spreadsheets, as often several spreadsheets will be used together, and it wastes a lot of time to have to move/resize most if not all of them every time.

This is a long-standing problem.

(My hardware is x86, OS is Linux, but that doesn't seem related to the issue.)

Still not present in LibO 3.4.3

Until this feature is added, I'm using OOo with LibO as a partial workaround.
Saving the size/position by document would be a big plus.

Would be surprised if the enhancement were made without a comment here.
Comment 4 sasha.libreoffice 2012-01-09 02:12:50 UTC

This is a request for enhancement, and yes it is still needed in Libreoffice 3.5.3.2 (release)
Comment 10 andréb 2012-08-14 19:33:32 UTC
confirmed
Comment 11 Florian Reisinger 2012-08-16 10:52:02 UTC
Please always use the oldest confirmed version ..l
Comment 12 andréb 2012-08-16 15:14:59 UTC
Ok, but this enhancement request is for a feature that did not exist in
Libreoffice from the beginning, neither in Openoffice before.

Version 3.4.3 release is the version I was using when I confirmed that it was
still valid in comment 1, 6 months after reporting it.
So should it have the first version of Libreoffice ?
Comment 13 Florian Reisinger 2012-08-16 16:14:45 UTC
Yes it should... Thanks

But it was. At least partially. See Bug 34515

Bug 34515 is about the position last viewed _inside_ a user's document.

This bug is about preserving the position of the window on the user's screen, for each individual document.  This requires saving the window position by document.

What currently happens is the position the document window of the last document saved of a particular _type_ (calc, writer, etc) is preserved for _all_ documents of that type.
Comment 16 sasha.libreoffice 2012-08-20 08:35:31 UTC
Thanks for additional explanation. Only now I understand that speaking is about window of LibreOffice itself, not about document.
I never encountered this problem because always use maximized window.
Comment 17 andréb 2012-08-20 09:14:07 UTC
And I almost always compare 2 or more documents, mostly calc, so I didn't consider the possible confusion with inside the document.
Thanks for clarifying the summary.
Comment 18 lalala+bugzilla 2013-08-21 09:11:30 UTC
I can confirm the behaviour (Writer, 4.1.0.4 on WinXP) and also would like LO to remember size and position of individual windows coupled with sensible defaults.

Expectation: 
- once-resized, windows should remember their position, width and height
- windows of new or previously unopened documents should open maximized on a 1024x768 laptop screen, but could be something like 2/3 of width and height on bigger screens where maximization doesn't make a lot of sense
Comment 19 Joel Madero 2014-02-27 22:55:06 UTC
In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.

Thank you and apologies for the noise
