When I want to open a document or insert a picture the dialogs only show the title of the file, not how big it is, which date it is editet and so. This only appears when the original dialoges of LibreOffice are used.
May I ask you to read hints on <http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport> carefully?
- Write a meaningful Summary describing exactly what the problem is (not
- Attach a sample document (not only screenshot) if useful
- Attach screenshots with comments. Best way is to insert your screenshots
into a DRAW document and to add comments that explain what you want to show
- Contribute a step by step instruction containing every key press and every
mouse click how to reproduce your problem (and if possible how to created a
sample document from the scratch)
- add information
-- what EXACTLY is unexpected (not available? Hidden? Columns too wide?)
-- and WHY do you believe it's unexpected (cite Help or Documentation!)
-- concerning your PC (video card, ...)
-- concerning your OS (Version, Distribution, Language)
-- concerning your LibO version and localization (UI language)
did you really never observe that before?)
–- Libo settings that might be related to your problems
(video hardware acceleration ...)
-- how you launch LibO and how you opened the sample document
–- If you can contribute an OOo Issue that might be useful
-- everything else crossing your mind after you read linked texts

Dialog for opening documents under LO 3.5.0 Beta2
You only see "Titel", nothing else. It could not be changed. There is no possibility under linux-rpm to change the dialogs to the system dialogs in the options.
With system dialogs all informations are shown (title, date ...)
And when you increase width of dialog? With WIN the "hidden" additional columns will appear
You're right. I have not tried it. But why is the default value for the title so long?
When I open LibreOffice Beta2 after changing the width of the first column all columns appear in the normally width.
I had this behaviour a long time ago in OpenOffice, don't know which version it was. There I had to change the dialog-boxes to system-boxes to see all in the dialog.
Yes, that's really not userfriendly. And I am pretty sure that that started in Master, I can not remember to have seen that bad default with 3.3 or 3.4.
Are there general thoughts concerning some improvements like horizontal scroll bar, enable/disable/interchange columns, may be something else?
Can you please check and make the defaults "release ready"? I remember that also WIN shows only the first column on my screen. But it seems that only the MSCV builds are affected, my MinGW builds have useful default column width.
I believe for the "first view" it's better to have too small column width than the situation reporter's screenshot shows.
Thank you for the report!
Most probably it is regression by http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=94cc09fbd030c03eba8b41314cb5bf0356faaad7 .
3.4 is not affected.
Fixed in 3.5 and master:
[ I'm keeping my fingers crossed in the hope for that the commit will not break anything in 3.5... :) ]
