Description Karsten 2015-02-25 10:16:38 UTC
I am sorry, but i am running crazy with the window sizes opening a document.
Why it is not possible to open a window with maximum vertical size?

I tried to compensate this with the window rules within KDE, but it is only possible with forcing vertical maximation to get a window that is usable.
But then you can't change the size or get it maximized to the complete window!

The problem is that there is a window resize after opening a document.
So it does not work taking influence to the size at initialization.

There are many other people who have a problem with manual resize of the window after each opening of a document.

Do you have a tip how it will be possible to get the window vertical maximized after opening an document?

I am working with LibreOffice now and it is still the same problem
Comment 2 Adolfo Jayme 2015-02-27 03:37:44 UTC
And how about trying 4.4.1? Any version older than 4.2.8 has no support nowadays.
Comment 3 Joel Madero 2015-02-27 05:51:04 UTC
Karsten - what version are you running? You marked this against 3.5 all and didn't tell us what version you're actually using.

Please confirm that it's a problem in release or newer. marking as NEEDINFO.

Also please provide clear reproducible steps that are enumerated:

1. Do x;
2. Do y
3. Do z


Mark the bug as UNCONFIRMED once you do the above things. Thanks

Hello Joel,

1. I can read "Version (earliest affected) - so i reported this.

2. I have written in my 1. comment "I am working with LibreOffice now"

3. Just open a document by clicking on it.
   That's the regular way a document is opened.
   It's the same opening an attachment.

4. I downloaded as stable release not long time ago?
   But i can try a newer version.

From my point of view it is nonsense to store the settings of a window, because you often work with documents on different PC's with different screen resolution.
So it makes more sense to have settings for the program itself.
Or - if you want to keep the function - there should be the possibility to disable it.

Maybe 3. it is not clear enough.
I open a document in a file explorer like krusader or as recently used document.
Comment 6 Karsten 2015-02-27 09:08:30 UTC
I updates libreoffice to
It's not working and leads to 2 new bugs i will open now.
Rolling back to previous backup of my system now.
Comment 7 Joel Madero 2015-02-27 14:53:56 UTC
My mistake about the version :) You indeed did things right.

As for the request - it's a fine enhancement request (we're not going to change default as many many users appreciate that it's per document that file size is stored).

Marking as:
Enhancement (works as designed but user wants a change)

Note: Bugs are taken on by volunteers, so we never give ETA's - that being said, there is a good chance this won't be implemented any time soon. Just want to make sure that everyone has realistic expectations.

Thanks for reporting.

That's no problem.
