Description Urmas 2013-02-16 08:36:19 UTC
With recent master, Save command in Writer uses an 'Open' common dialog, which cannot be used to give a name of a new file.
Comment 1 Julien Nabet 2013-02-16 14:54:06 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today (commit 1cc6db3c6014b36c2452b6e382559119c8093884), I don't reproduce this.

Could you give details about the version? Do you compile from sources?
Do you have the open dialog in every case?
- icon save
- shortcut Ctrl-S
- menu file/Save
Comment 2 Urmas 2013-02-16 16:35:27 UTC
The build ID is 2b9394f0c009b385756a0c5d75e3c1cd412f723
This apparently affects all applications and is a Windows-specific bug.
Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2013-02-16 17:34:28 UTC
Urmas: thank you for your feedback.
Rainer: would you have some time to reproduce this?

Do you use own builds from git? If not, please contribute complete Version info, especially time stamp.

Are you planning to take this one or do we need a dev. wiht WIN?
Comment 5 Julien Nabet 2013-02-16 18:35:52 UTC
Rainer: Sorry, I don't know where to investigate about this so we need a dev here.

I can confirm this bug with Mac OSX 10.8.2 also. Therefore -> versions to 'all'. Set priority to 'high' because this is not a windows-only bug. I don't set priority to 'highest' because this isn't reproducable using Linux (so far tested) and there is a workaround.

LibreOffice Version (Build ID: 9d6bb5daa67fef7abe07cfbfa22cd52ce73d804)
TinderBox: MacOSX-Intel@1-built_no-moz_on_10.6.8, Branch:master, Time: 2013-02-15_23:41:25

I can't confirm this behavior with Linux Mint 14 x64 latest master (build today, using git, ./autogen.sh --enable-debug && make && make dev-install).
Comment 7 Jorendc 2013-02-16 19:04:57 UTC
Although, when I do 'file > open' my directory is in the last directory I opened a file ... that's correct.

When I try to 'save' using file > save (or shortcut or icon on toolbar) the starting directory is 'Documents' ... and that's the good (default) behavior when I would like to save something... In previous versions this was the start directory when I click on 'save'. So it looks like only the dialog is wrong, not the code that process/shows things.

Comment 10 Jorendc 2013-02-25 22:21:28 UTC
I can't reproduce this anymore using Mac OSX 10.8.2 and LibreOffice Version (Build ID: 80f57172833ec720a2bc0d7d9c8f82f8bc5fc70)
TinderBox: MacOSX-Intel@1-built_no-moz_on_10.6.8, Branch:master, Time: 2013-02-24_11:53:07

Can please someone can verify so we can mark this as RESOLVED WORKSFORME (or FIXED if we know which commit it fixed)?

Kind regards,
