Description falko.tesch 2003-09-26 09:02:39 UTC
Product Requirement Settings: doc. vs. app. Customer Need/Problem Better distinguish between settings that apply to a document only and those which apply to the whole application Office has various options, all accessible through 'Tools - Options'. Most of those address office as a whole but some only affect the current open document and some even double in their function as for the document and/or for the application (example: 'Tools - Options - Text document - Basic fonts'). The past has shown that the user gets confused with the mixture of functions. Especially the functions that can be set general (apply to office) or to a single document seems to be confusing. It is in need to draw a clearer line in between those settings and possibly relocate the document-relevant settings to dialogue other the 'Option' one.

Due to missing resources the product team and the development decided to shift this feature to the next target 'OOo later'. It is unlikely to integrate this feature in OOo 2.0. If somebody in the community have the knowledge to help Sun here, please contact the development and retarget this feature.
