Description Johannes Weberhofer 2012-10-12 14:03:12 UTC
OSX 10.8 is handling LibreOffice's recently used docs next to the symbbol automatically. Therefore the Symbol's "file"->"recently used docs" should be removed, as it is a bit confusing to see two similar lists with different presentation side-by-side. See explaining screenshots in #53051
Comment 1 Roman Eisele 2012-10-12 14:29:33 UTC
Confirmed, cf. discussion in bug 53051.

Direkt link to the screenshots:
* Old behaviour (Mac OS X 10.6): attachment 67678 [details].
* New behaviour (Mac OS X 10.8): attachment 67682 [details].

The latter shows that the sub-sub-menu “recently used documents”, while useful on Mac OS X 10.6, is no longer necessary, but an irritating duplication on Mac OS X >= 10.8. So LibreOffice should check the Mac OS X version on startup and, if it finds that the version is >= 10.8, just not add the sub-sub-menu “recently used documents”.

Are we talking about the File:Recent Documents menu here, or that thing from Control-clicking on the Dock's LibreOffice icon?

I proposed to remove LO's recent documents on the Application's icon on OSX.

The Dock still displays both lists of recently used items in version 5.3.0.3.
