Description lendo 2009-04-20 11:35:24 UTC
The new password dialog when opening a protected opendocument file has less
usability than the dialog in privious versions.

3 suggestions:

1) Enlarge the width of the dialog for translations to ensure that the
translated string fits into 1 line. Now in German it looks like:

"Geben Sie das Passwort ein, um die Datei zu

That looks not professional; a whole new line für one word! What a waste of space.

"Geben Sie das Passwort ein, um die Datei zu öffnen:"

This would look much better.

2) Long file paths and file names are truncated and the user can't read the name
of the file; (s)he can only see the first part of the path. Suggestion: If the
file path/name is too long, wrap it to a new line so that the user can read the
full path and the full file name. Or if this is not what you want, show the last
characters of the string and truncate the beginning of the file path instead of
the end of the string with the file name.


now it looks like: "file:///C:/this/is/a/..."
This is a useless information for the user in most times.

suggestion with truncated string: ".../the/user's/file/name.odt"
suggestion with wrapped string: "file:///C:/this/is/a/long/path/

3) The user can't enter a password and press the ENTER key on the keyboard. Now
you have to enter the password and then a) you have to click OK with the mouse
or b) you must press TAB on the keyboard so that the focus jumps to the OK
button and then you can press ENTER.
The previous dialog needed less interaction. It was possible to enter a password
and to press ENTER - which is much faster than the new behavior.
--> This behavior is already covered by Issue 99885.
