Description dhollm 2009-11-10 12:34:31 UTC
I use the OD* file formats as the default.

Here's the scenario:

1. Load a Word document
2. File, Save as
3. Navigate to a new filesystem location, click okay
4. You are asked if you really wanted to save in ODT format instead
5. Click okay (ie yes, save as ODT)
6. Another save-as dialog comes up, but it has forgotten the path you selected
7. Reselect the path, etc...

Desired behaviour:
After step 5, you're done.  There is no need to prompt for any additional
information.  It should just save as <original name>.odt.

MRU->MAV: when opening e.g. a .doc, selecting "save as" and choosing a different
path, this one is not preserved when clicking "Save as ODF" in the alien warning

Will the "Desired behaviour" ever be implemented ?

Reset the assignee to the default "".
