o Create a Writer document. o select File|Save o enter a file name o check 'Save with password' o click OK ...at this point user is prompted to enter a password, twice. Nowhere in the dialog box does it indicate the password must be five characters or more. At first my impression was the feature was broken then I discovered the password length requirement by accident. Requested change: Modify dialog box to include label indicating minimum password length. Preferred change: Modify dialog box as above AND allow passwords as short as one character with global setting so user may specify minimum password length. Sure one character, or even five, doesn't make for a good password. However for average end users I expect five is too many characters and deters them from using the feature if they even figure out (because the dialog box doesn't indicated minimum required characters) how to. For those that know better than to use a short password they won't even if they're able to.

Peter, please take over. I never understand why such understandable and easy implementable RFEs are put into the dark oblivion called "requirements".

pb: set to 3.x because 3.0 is ui-freeze.

Mikhail, please take over. We should discuss which option we would like to implement.
