It would be nice to be able to easy switch between the native file dialogs, which are on by default, to libreoffice's custom dialogs and vice versa, rather than having to go into the options dialog to set and unset it.

If a simple button could be added to each of the dialogs which simply disabled the current dialogs type, closed the current dialog and then requested the same command to execute to open the alternative dialog, that would be great.

What is the use case for this?
Comment 2 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-01-07 09:29:23 UTC
Use cases:

1) A user opens the native dialog and wants to connect to a CMIS as he/she was informed that it was possible but doesnt know how to do it.

2) A user opens the LO dialog and prefers to have access to various native OS dialog features (e.g. deleting a file).

Being able to switch from one to another is a long process when it can be quite easy. By default on windows, i keep it on the OS dialog, but sometimes i want to connect to Google Drive which is only accessible through LO's native dialog, so i need to switch to that, but of course i want to switch back after that.

Now that bug 86703 has been implemented, this isnt important from a CMIS perspective.
