Description Björn Michaelsen 2011-07-28 08:33:51 UTC
=== Store/Restore font dropdown MRU ===

'''Background:''' When you open a new document, use the font dropdown and select a number of different fonts then the 5 or so most recently used fonts are shown at the top of the list. But when you open a new document then the dropdown resets again. It would be nice to retain the MRU list when opening a new document, and also save and restore the MRU on exit and restart. Code for the dropdown is in svtools/source/control/ctrlbox.cxx, see vcl/unx/source/fontmanager.cxx and "m_aCacheFile" for a sample of the APIs to save/load from/to a file in the users config directories.

'''Skills:''' C++

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=f82a46dabeb431fc199aa4b43766115184844efe is related, and probably a good place to start. Might just be a matter of bug-fixing rather than work from scratch.
