Description Björn Michaelsen 2011-06-30 08:50:54 UTC
Background: SfxTabDialog::~SfxTabDialog() idealls saves the position of the dialogs according to this comment. However, in practice this is not really true: edit a style in Writer, move the dialog, press the apply button, and the position is reset. It would be nice to really save the position.

Fixes dialog location and current page not being stored properly

Hopefully, this is an appropriate patch for this bug. Dialogs should now appear in their previous location after clicking Apply or Ok and then reopening them. Furthermore, clicking Apply should now keep focus on the current tab-page instead of reverting back to the initial one (this wasn't an issue listed in the initial bug post, but it was happening to me in multiple versions and related so the fix is there.)

I marked bug 38828 as a duplicate of this.  Although my report related to reseting, I suspect that this patch might solve the issue.  I can't confirm, would appreciate if those that hacked the fix (many thanks) could validate that what I observed is in fact fixed.
