Description bhavbhuti 2006-02-15 14:41:39 UTC
Hi all

When a document or application of OOo is loading in the background it has a very
annoying habit of coming to the forefront of the current active window application.

Supposing I load a calc worksheet by double clicking on it and in the meantime I
activate my browser and start working on it.  OOo will deactivate my browser and
forcefully activate the OOo window in question.

This is very annoying.

Please rectify it in the next release.

Thanks for the effort you have put into the applications.

More or less anything unclear here. Of course I also have this kind of documents what need 2 Minutes or more to open and I would like to do something useful during that time. Unfortunately in most cases I would like to do something in AOO, what is completely impossible.

So It might have some advantage to open such a document already in background 1/4  h before it will be needed, and indeed it might be better if "open ready" does not break other work with other application. 

But in very most cases very most users for most documents expect to get documents immediately and that document comes to foreground immediately.

But during a quick test I did not observe tis problem  with "AOO 4.1.0 RC4 – German UI / German locale [AOO410m18(Build:9764)  -   Rev. 1589052 2014-04-22 11:43:54]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", “historic” 4. User Profile used for all predecessor versions. In WIN file explorer I double clicked an .ods requiring few minutes for opening , fileopen AOO window appeared, I switched to browser to write this comment, AOO DID come to foreground when file open was finished. But same test with a big .odt: AOO DID not come to foreground

"If loaded in background" is a very vague description, and also some other things need clarification.

And it's not common sense always to open documents in background, this only can be an option.

(a) What AOO applications / document types are affected
(b) what opening processes are affected?
(c) all OS affected?
(d) Is there already a AOO program routine what can do that? In hepl for
    WIN command line options I did not find anything.
(e) Can an extension be the solution
