Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-03-10 11:43:04 UTC
Writer menu 'Insert -> File ...' allows to insert contents of a text file contents from existing .odt, .doc and similar at the cursor position. No other file type will be accepted (see help), and so the file type selector in Fileopen dialog (LibO and OS) should suggest "Text Documents" instead of "All Files"

Of course also Help and Documentation has to be adapted.

Inherited from OOo and still in current Master

Should not be too difficult, but I can't remember a similar context sensitive start suggestion in a file dialog, so difficulty=interesting
Comment 2 Prashant 2013-04-03 08:36:56 UTC
Is there a difference between this one and https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62097.

Comment 3 Joel Madero 2014-02-27 23:24:01 UTC
In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.

Thank you and apologies for the noise
