Description lutz.hoeger 2003-10-21 14:12:33 UTC
Description from paremt task:

Product Requirement:
Provide a more complete coverage of undo-able actions and more specific action
descriptions

Customer Need/Problem:
Not all actions are undoable, so undo appears broken sometimes.

Product Concept
Undo / Redo have to be enhanced in:  

Calc: Auto Filters  

Impress: Slide layout  

Writer: Updating of indices Example: Insert table of content, then change a
header, then update table of content deletes the undo stack.  

Writer / Impress / Calc:  StyleSheets (esp. Page StyleSheets in Writer): 

Examples: 
a) changing the page border with the mouse 

b) changing background color of pages or paragraph styles 

c) adding a header/footer Changes to styles are generally not undoable. If they
involve switching headers/footers on/off, the undo stack is deleted as well. 

d)Some descriptions of the undo/redo items should be redefined by User Experience.

I just wanted to write down the error message that has caused confusion and one
of the suggested solutions if the technical situation doesn't let us remove the
message entirely. 
Problematic message:
"This action deletes the list of actions that can be undone. Previous
changes made to the document are still valid, but cannot be undone. Do you want
to continue and thus assign the new slide design?" 
One suggested rewrite:
"By making this change, you will lose the ability to
use the "Undo" option for any modifications that were
made prior to this change. Do you want to continue?"
