Description crxssi 2005-12-06 16:58:23 UTC
Enhancement request.  This is a suggestion that comes from me and my user base
for the Linux and Unix versions of OpenOffice:

The file open and save dialog boxes do not show the file permissions, owner, or
group names.  There is also no option to display this information about files.

Linux/Unix WordPefect, as a comparison, allows the user to not only view such
file attributes but also change them (chmod), and also customize the display of
the dialog.

As it is now, the user must use some other file manager, since OO can't do it
even though OO *can*  create a directory, rename/move a file, delete a file, and
delete a directory.  OO can not, however, display or change permissions, display
owner/group, or copy a file or directory.

With a minimal change to the open/save dialog, all the features of a file
manager would be available to the user without having to launch some other program.
