Description daniel.rentz 2009-06-21 12:49:14 UTC
The dialog "Enter password" needs some improvements:

- It is not possible to exit the dialog with "Enter" while focus is in text field
- The URL is not shown completely, one has no idea which file is about to be opened
- The OK/Cancel/Help buttons are too close to each other compared to other dialogs

Before the 3.1, ok butoon is active for "Enter" touch ... now, it's not the case !

Well, this is not an enhancement but a defect.
[Cancel] button escaped the dialog but [OK] did not valid.
Thanks to target it for next 3.1.1 or 3.2

The first entry is indeed a defect
"- It is not possible to exit the dialog with "Enter" while focus is in text field"
It is a duplicate to the issue 99885 that is already fixed in DEV300_m51.

Two other entries are enhancements.
Comment 5 jolatt 2009-10-02 07:52:14 UTC
Concerning the second entry:
This was introduced with OOo 3.x.x. I cannot find any reason to show the
complete URL. In most cases it will be truncated, so that the filename isn't
It would be enough and reasonably to show only the filename (as earlier).
Comment 6 jolatt 2009-10-02 08:04:12 UTC
The password dialog says basically: Enter a password to open the file.
Because of the URL length the filename is often not visisble.
For me is this a bug not an enhancement.

Reset assigne to the default "".
