Missing Save as type dropdown none

Description praizada 2007-01-16 21:10:39 UTC
Hello I am running OpenOffice 2.1 in a two monitor config. When an app is 
displayed in the primary monitor, the 'Save as type:' dropdown (along with a 
couple of checkboxes) displays correctly. When the Apps is moved to the second 
monitor, the 'Save as type:' drop down is missing along with the checkboxes. 
This happens on Writer, Impress and Draw (and I am assuming other apps too).

Comment 3 bezginovel 2007-01-31 01:09:00 UTC
Confirmed on the above configuration.
Reproduction steps(must have 2 monitor configuration):
a) In windows:
1.right-click on desktop | Properties => Settings tab. If 2-monitor
configuration  is enabled you will see a picture of 2 monitors numbered 1 and 2
2.Use left mouse button to drag monitor 2 on top of monitor 1
b) In OpenOffice:
1.Create a new document
2.drag the program window up completely into screen of monitor 2
3.File|Save As...
4.=> “Save as type†dropdown list is missing along with checkboxes: “Automatic
file name extensionâ€, “Save with password†and “Edit filter settingsâ€
Comment 4 bezginovel 2007-01-31 01:32:58 UTC
Some details
The defect observed in in both when program window is maximized or restored down
If the program window is split between screens then behavior depends on which
screen the greater area of the window is located(same rule as for to which
screen the window will be maximized). Position of “Save as†dialog is unimportant.
The issue is only present in 2-monitor configuration where monitor 2 is on top
of monitor 1. In other arrangements the behavior is as expected. 
When the defect is observed:
The format to save the document to is same as type of original document. States
of checkboxes are preserved from previous successful “save as†dialog. Hotkeys
for checkboxes do not work.

Comment 7 bezginovel 2007-01-31 23:21:38 UTC
Variations of the issue. 
For each variation start in the state achieved after completing step b-2 for
described case.

"Open" dialog:
1. File|Open...
2. => dropdown lists "Files of type" and "Version" are missing. Same for
"Read-only" checkbox

"Export" dialog:
1. File|Export...
2. => dropdown list "File format" is missing. Same for checkboxes

"Insert Movie and Sound" dialog:
1. Insert|Movie and Sound
2. => dropdown list "Files of type" is missing

Similar behavior has been observed for several other dialog windows which
include a "File type filter" dropdown list

Other user complains about the same problem with Draw (in Russian)

"In order to reproduce you have to position Draw on secondary monitor"

As I do not have dual monitor setup I can't check myself, but setting it as

Dear developers,
any chance of targeting this one for 2.3?

Thanks a lot for your attention.

Comment 18 runnermule 2007-11-06 01:34:31 UTC
I just encountered this issue today. Some different observations that have not
been described can be observed.

This issue does not seem to occur when the main frame of the document is in the
primary monitor. If a document that shows the "Save as type" drop-down menus
correctly is moved to the secondary monitor, it may not show the "Save as type"
drop-down and check boxes. If the second monitor is positioned above the primary
monitor, the drop-down is missing. If the bottom edge of the secondary monitor
is aligned at the left in the dual monitor configuration, the drop-down appears.
If the secondary monitor is aligned so that only the lower right third of
secondary monitor is aligned with the upper left third of the primary monitor
display, the drop-down disappears if the primary document window is on the
secondary display. If the document window frame is moved back to the primary
display, the expected drop-down menu and check boxes reappear, even when the 
"Save as type" dialog frame appears on the secondary display.

Tagging this issue as "dualmonitor" for easier discovery.
