Description rkollien 2003-10-21 15:56:33 UTC
In the config dialog: If you remove the path of the standard autotext location, "executing" an autotext via the F3 key is not possible. This occurs only if the standard path of the autotext dir <oo-instdir>/share/autotext/<lang> is deleted. Background: 1) we don't want the standard autotexts provided with the distribution and don't want to have an entry named "Standard" in the autotext maintaince dialog. 2) we use a separate dir for the user autotext to be sure this is not overwriten by a update/reinstall. 3) we dont't have/want a system wide autotext dir. So in the config dialog we changed the pathes for autotext to only "$HOME/Documents/OOffice/Autotext". Now when you start writer and want to use autotext, the F3-key is without function. You first have to invoke the autotext maintainance dialog via Ctrl-F3. You than can immediatelly close it by hiting the ESC-key or closing it via the Cancel- or OK-Button. At this moment you can use the F3-key as usual to "execute" a stored autotext. This only happens if the default path to autotext, pointing to the install dir, is removed. As we added the standard dir to the paths for autotext again, the F3-key does the job as expected. It is only neccessary that the path to the standard autotext directory in the INSTALLDIR of OpenOffice is present. The standard path in the users home dir can be changed or removed. Testcase: - open Writer - go to tools/options/path - for autotext remove the path entry pointing to the "systemwide" autotext dir (normally <installdir>/share/autotext/<lang> on Linux). - close and reopen writer - hit F3 -> nothing happens - go to tools/options/path - select autotext and klick "Default" - close and reopen writer - hit F3 -> Dialog "autotext for '' not found". This is correct. System: Linux gcc 2.2.5/Windows2000/Win98 OOo-Version: 1.0.3 and 1.1.0

Confirmed RH9/680m11 This behavior occurs not only when the server path is deleted, but also when it is restored -- F3 functionality is nullified until the AutoText dialog is opened and then closed.

Comment 5 Thorsten Stache 2013-07-22 11:55:27 UTC
Also when i use the default configuration and write the autotext to 'my autotext' in 'C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\OpenOffice.org\3\user\autotext\mytexts.bau'.
