The new password dialog when opening a protected opendocument file has less usability than the dialog in privious OpenOffice.org versions. 3 suggestions: 1) Enlarge the width of the dialog for translations to ensure that the translated string fits into 1 line. Now in German it looks like: "Geben Sie das Passwort ein, um die Datei zu Ã¶ffnen:" That looks not professional; a whole new line fÃ¼r one word! What a waste of space. "Geben Sie das Passwort ein, um die Datei zu Ã¶ffnen:" This would look much better. 2) Long file paths and file names are truncated and the user can't read the name of the file; (s)he can only see the first part of the path. Suggestion: If the file path/name is too long, wrap it to a new line so that the user can read the full path and the full file name. Or if this is not what you want, show the last characters of the string and truncate the beginning of the file path instead of the end of the string with the file name. example: "file:///C:/this/is/a/long/path/to/the/user's/file/name.odt" now it looks like: "file:///C:/this/is/a/..." This is a useless information for the user in most times. suggestion with truncated string: ".../the/user's/file/name.odt" suggestion with wrapped string: "file:///C:/this/is/a/long/path/ to/the/user's/file/name.odt" 3) The user can't enter a password and press the ENTER key on the keyboard. Now you have to enter the password and then a) you have to click OK with the mouse or b) you must press TAB on the keyboard so that the focus jumps to the OK button and then you can press ENTER. The previous dialog needed less interaction. It was possible to enter a password and to press ENTER - which is much faster than the new behavior. --> This behavior is already covered by Issue 99885.
