Description lars 2002-10-23 15:10:30 UTC
auto roll up of Navigator like in Paintshop Pro; so, if not used, roll up to bar only, when mouse pointing on bar, roll down.

Hm. Unfortunately they have removed Navigator's and Stylist's ability to be rolled up to bar by doubleclick in Openoffice.org 1.1beta/beta2. Is that intentional? The feature requested by Lars is quite interesting. But, if navigator can't roll up at all anymore ... I'd like to have that bar mode back first.

You can use your window-manager's feature to roll up the window (where available). You can 'dock' the navigator/stylist,etc to the side of the Main-Window (press <ctrl> while dragging the window to the right or left). The window now has a pin and an arrow. Use the arrow to make it autohide/stay and the pin to change whether the window should just be on top of the document or whether it should be placed next to the document (cannot explain it in english, just try it out). If you klick the arrow to open the navigator, it will stay on screen even when you leave the navigator window. If you klick below the pin instead (just klick the bar) the window will hide when leaving. To 'undock' the window, press <ctrl> and double-click in some white-space in the navigator-window. Please comment if you're satified with this solution

Not satisfied. (I wanted to write "Yes" initially, because of the following explanation, but then, in order to get the right point first, I wrote what I did) You describe auto-roll up for the docked mode. This is OK and good. But I like to have auto-roll up for the window in window mode to just the title bar when leaving the window area and unroll when pointing on the title bar (the title bar and window if unrolled must be always in front) like you have for the layers or overview window in PSP.

> if not used, roll up to bar only, > when mouse pointing on bar, roll down I would not like this behaviour but instead have back the rollup functionality (issue 8095). This enables me to leave the mouse where the style is located which I want to use. Therefore, the Paintshop behaviour should be optional, or it shouldn't be there at all.
Comment 9 lars 2003-08-04 11:55:12 UTC
clarification: > if not used, roll up to bar only, > when mouse pointing on bar, roll down if not used = if window rolled down and mouse moved out of window area when mouse pointing on bar = if window rolled up and mouse pointing on bar roll down and leave it rolled down as long as it is "used", so mouse remains in window area

With 1.1 and 2.0 we will be more and more a "Good citizen". Zthis means we will use as many gadgets from the underlying OS but not any proprietary ones. So a roll-up works just fine in Windowmanagern under Linux (at least those that support this) and we also support it under windows in case such UI enhancement is installed under Windows.
