Description Rainer Bielefeld 2013-12-23 05:52:48 UTC
I see in "server installation of "AOO 4.1.0-Dev – German UI / German locale - [AOO410m1(Build:9750) - Rev. 1537508 - 2013-11-02]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", own separate user profile." In 'Help -> Contents -> Text Documents -> General Information -> Command and Menu Reference -> Menus -> File -> Recent Documents' I read: "Lists the most recently opened files. To open a file in the list, click its name. The file is opened by the OpenOffice module that saved it." That's not true, a File name appears in the Recent document list when it becomes closed with the name the document has had when it becomes closed. Example: 1. Open existing "Test0.odt" 2. Save without any edits as "Test1.odt" 3. Check menu 'File -> Recent documents': neither "Test0.odt" nor "Test1.odt" 4. Menu 'Filc -> Close' 5. Check menu 'File -> Recent documents': "Test1.odt" at the top of the list Suggestion: "Lists the most recently closed files. To open a file in the list, click its name. The file is opened by the OpenOffice module that saved it."

Additional info: (a) Already reproducible with Pre-3.4.0 (OOo 1.1.5), but because of crippled Version selector (Bug 123063) no useful info can be contributed (b) also see "Bug 90228 - file not 'recent' if saved under new name"

Description is correct but Help information is also correct. The expected behavior is that Recent Documents will display opened files (even read-only) and not saved files. This is the behavior in every program I know. AOO410m1(Build:9750) - Rev. 1551264 2013-12-17_04:10:52 - Rev. 1551455 Debian
