Description aziem 2007-05-24 19:55:05 UTC
When using the built-in (non-native) file open/save dialogs (which is the default in many situations), it's possible to right click to delete a file. (That's normal.) However, the file is deleted permanently (bypassing trash/recycle bin) without sufficient warning. Consequently, user experiences unintended data loss, which may lead to hair loss. I tested Windows and Linux OOo 2.2. Suggestions: 1. Integrate with the OS's trash can / recycle bin*. 2. Provide a clear warning that the deletion is permanent. 3. Remove the delete option from the file picker. * For X11 systems, see <http://www.ramendik.ru/docs/trashspec.html>.

To delete user's files permanently without warning is not a trivial enhancement, but a major bug. Still reproducible with "AOO 4.1.0-Dev – English UI / German locale - [AOO410m1(Build:9750) - Rev. 1516435 2013-08-24]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", own separate user profile.

This might be not a trivial fix for all OS
