Description glmason 2003-09-26 17:13:02 UTC
I'm building a spreadsheet application, though it seems that this should be 
available to all documents. There needs to be a way to save application data 
with the document. On the spreadsheet I used a work around of saving data to a 
hidden sheet, but the end user can unhide the sheet from the menu, and this is 
ultimatly not an acceptable solution. 

There are are with a spread sheet, four fields for user data, howevern that 
that refers to end-user data, not data that an application may need to know the 
next time the user opens a document.

It would be best to save objects, but they would need to be serialized in some 
way, so maybe it would be enough to have key=value "properties" that are save 
with the document, however there should be no specific limit of the number of 

This is the first issue I've raized, so if I have not done everything 
correctly, I apologize in advance.

I agree that such a feature would be very helpful.  Unfortunately it
means a coop of very many dvelopers (API, framework, applications). 
Thus I cant make any promnises for when we can address it.
