Forms view as from 3.4.
In Base Forms should always open in Web View.

Same file in 3.3.4
I tried to reproduced it on 3.5 branch and master branch (future branch).
Except if I missed something, it worked for both of them.
It was on a PC Debian testing x64.
Could you please try to reproduce it with 3.5.0 beta 2 ?
I re-tested with a 3.5 made form and all works fine.
I will re-test with 3.3 made forms and report back.
Test Win 7(32) LO3.5
Forms odb made in 3.3 and OO 3.3 open in Lo 3.5 in print mode.
Also if saved as text (odt) outside .odb forms made in OO 3.3 and LO 3.3 open in print mode.
What parameter in the setting.xml is controlling this? If it is.
Than I can compare files and report where possible difference in interpretation of settings take place.
Have you tried these 2 things :?
- to create another brand new form just to see if it's the same behaviour
- to edit the form which has the pb and change view of it
Also could you attached the database file ?
Yes I did create a brand new odb and odt(form) as wel in 3.3 and 3.5.
3.5 to 3.3 works fine, 3.3 to 3.5 gives a print view.
I also tried to fors to open the file with sweb.exe. Than even it opens in print-view!

*** Bug 44401 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Its the same problem with OpenSuSE 11.4 32bit and OpenSuSE 12.1 64bit and LibreOffice 3.5.0 Beta2.
I had created a database unter 3.3.4. Created also a form. Then opend it with a netbook and OpenSuSE 12.1 64bit / LO 3.5.0 Beta2. Forms werde shown in printview. Edited the form with 3.5.0 Beta2, saved it. Form is shown in webview. Opend it next day at work with my netbook and LO 3.5.0 Beta2 - again it shows the form in printview.
So I could not change a form created in 3.3.4 to a form with webview for a longer time.
Had just tested it only with LO 3.5 Beta2. Ist the same behaviour. There was no form in the database. I created the first form. It's been created in webview. Saw this when I tried to put data into the form. Closed the database and LO 3.5.0 Beta2. Opend LO 3.5.0 Beta2 again. Opened database and the form - form is shon in printview.
It isn't a bug between 3.3.4 an 3.4 or 3.5. It's a bug of 3.4 and 3.5.
I did almost the same test as you with 3.5 branch (so not exactly 3.5 beta2).
- created a new database (this point is different)
- created a new table
- created a form
it opened in webview by default
- closed form and database
- opened database then form
it opened in webview too.
I'm on Debian testing x86-64.
robert: Could you test again with a database created with 3.5 beta2 to see if form open in print view too ?
the form file in odb is in fact an embedded odt file. So I tested the odt file outside the odb.
These are my findings (with two attached examples)
All on Win7/32. (rebuilding my Linux 2.6/32 env.)
Web view documents created in older versions that behave correctly in LO33/OO33, do not behave correctly in LO35.
What did I do. I created two files. (odt) one with and one without a form object in it. Both files are saved in webview.
When opened in LO33/OO33 they both open in webview.
But when opened in LO34 or LO35, the file without form object opens in webview, but the file with a form object opens in printview!! I believe the first versions of OO33 had the same problem.
Somehow the form object in the file seems to cause the prinview=0 setting to be skipped.

33 made saved in webview incl. form object

33 made saved in webview excl. form object
I tried it with a new database, only opened and closed in LO 3.5.0 Beta2. The form opens in webview. It shows no background-colors. With the formwizzard changing of color is impossible. When changing the color without the formwizzard I see a white margin (about 1cm) at the left and at the top. The whole formelements moved the same way to the right and to the bottom.
When opening and closing in LO 3.3.4 and creating a form with the wizzard the colors werde shown.
When opening the form of LO 3.5 Beta2 the form is corrctly shown - wizhout the big white margins.
For users of LO 3.5.0 Beta2 it seems to be no problem. Could be that they do not notice the greater margin, because the whole form is only white?

White margin arround forms - whole database created in LO 3.5.0 Beta2
I agree that it is pretty annoying, so I added this to the most annoying bugs. On the other hand, there exists workaround, it took long time to report it => it can't block the release => lovering the severity a bit.

Sorry, but it hasn't just been discovered, at least, by my reckoning, this is the same problem as :
which was raised in May 2011. And it should block the release because it was already slated as a "3.4 most annoying bug".
I would be inclined to set this report as a duplicate of 37024.
