Description skiani 2002-12-17 17:43:30 UTC
Added an "Apply" button to all the dialog boxes used for formating objects would
be a great help. Right now if I want to change the size of an object I open the
"Position and size" dialog change the numbers then have to say OK. This closes
the dialog and changes the object, but if I'm not sure on the numbers I've got
to right click again and try again. If I could just "Apply" I can quickly find
the right numbers.

The lack of an "Apply" button is a big problem in a graphic app like Draw (I'm
tempted to say that it is a "painful problem"). I've never understood why this
button is not present in OOo.

There are several other requests for "Apply" buttons dating back to 2001.
I'm posting this message in all of them.

Does anyone know an effective way to join them, to add the votes, to raise
visibility with developers ?

These are found looking for the word "Apply" in the subject:

2374 (ui) add Apply button in Options to avoid having to re-drill down
10173 (Drawing) Apply button to dialogs
15582 (Word processor) Implement 'Apply changes' option
24443 (Word processor) change button name of style catalog: ok -> apply
45396 (framework) "Apply" button in "Appearance" box
51333 (framework) Add "Apply" button to dialogs "Tools-Options" and
67133 (framework) apply button in options tab
67848 (Chart) add a button 'Apply' on the dialog 'Object Properties'

In the meantime, I hope you'd consider voting for all of them.

you can open a meta issue (like Issue 81537), to track all apply button related
issues and to focus votes.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
