Description Rainer Bielefeld 2013-08-25 08:47:41 UTC
Currently AOO only allows to define 1 single "My Documents" folder, what nowadays looks a little poor compared to the LibO customizable "Places" list. AOO needs something similar (but not a simple copy), the missing comfort in the File dialog is one weighty reason for me why I still prefer LibO for most of my daily work. This one has some relation to "Bug 31503 - Customized list for favorite documents". I would prefer a Favorite Folders function to a Favorite documents.

I'm not familiar with "Places" of LibO. IMHO a favorite documents feature instead of favorite folders will be more useful.

As stated in <https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=42383#c8> this enhancement request is for a completely different feature than Bug 42383

Created attachment 82764 [details] Mockup A first idea how such Favorites might look With a rightlick on a favorite 3 options "Delete - Move up - move down" would be offered.

Wasn't description about Tools - Options... - OpenOffice - Paths - My Documents ? I envisioned a solution where the definition of favorites (plural and not single) takes place in Tools - Options... A dedicated icon enables quick selection in open dialog. A favorite folder is offered automatically in save dialog according document keywords in File - Properties... - Description. IMHO open dialog should open only and stay clean and minimal. There is also a chance of accidently creating new directories in the mockup of commnet 4.
