Description fyva 2010-01-07 02:44:55 UTC
Undo and Redo don't work in OOo Basic in OOO320m8.
(Ubuntu 8.04 + OOo_3.2.0rc1_20091217_LinuxIntel_install_ru_deb.tar.gz)
Comment 1 ab 2010-01-07 09:29:28 UTC
Checked with local installation of OOO320m8 on Linux and also on Windows.
and found no problems. Undo and Redo worked.
Comment 2 fyva 2010-01-07 12:02:26 UTC
Buttons are active? Ctrl+Z and Ctrl+Y work fine, but the Undo and Redo buttons
are greyed out. The same issue is on Windows. Deleting profile do not help
(checked on Linux).
Comment 3 fyva 2010-01-07 12:07:35 UTC
Ctrl+Y does not work on Windows. The Undo/Redo items in the "Edit" menu work
properly. But the buttons on the panel are greyed out.

worksforme -> closed
Comment 6 fyva 2010-01-09 02:21:37 UTC
Buttons Undo/Redo on the panel begin to work after accessing Undo/Redo shortcuts
in the "Edit" menu.
Comment 7 helenrussian 2010-01-09 06:25:48 UTC
I confirm this problem with OOo 3.2 RC1 on Linux.
Buttons Undo and Redo are inactive on toolbar in Basic IDE.

* Run OOo
* press Alt+F11 ("OOo Basic Macros" window opens), select Edit (Basic IDE opens,
the Standart toolbar is visible)
* type some text
* look on the Standart toolbar: buttons Undo and Redo are inactive.

Buttons Undo/Redo will work fine if you select Undo with menu item (menu Edit -
or you hide and show again the Standart toolbar.

I closed the issue because ab set it to worksforme

I didn't do any further tests, sorry

Today I did some tests and really you can't do undo and redo via the icons

The icons are greyed out

I confirm it with OOO320_m9 RC 2

Easy to workaround
-> P4, OOo Later
Comment 12 mdxonefour 2011-01-25 10:08:25 UTC
MD: To me it looks like it was working fine in 3.1 release but was already
broken in 3.2.0 release on Windows.

Adding keyword "regression", prio and target.

Comment 18 fyva 2011-03-20 05:58:20 UTC
Still, pressing Ctrl Z, the Redo button doesn't get enabled. Ctrl Y combination doesn't work at all. BTW, there is another bug: the menu "Edit - Select All" is always greyed out. However, the key combination Ctrl A works. Basic IDE menus are very buggy. Not sure if a separate issue shoud be filed against each bug. For example, another bug is that when the clipboard contains a picture that can't be inserted, the paste button on the panel is disabled (this is right), but the menu item Paste in the Edit menu is still enabled. Somehow, the buttons on the panel and the menu items are not synchronized, it seems. Remember that Copy and Cut buttons don't work too in Basic IDE.
Comment 19 fyva 2011-03-21 11:14:32 UTC
IMHO, all these bugs could be fixed together with this and similar bugs as a whole:

* The menu Repeat (Ctrl Shift Y) is always disabled.
* The Ctrl C shortcut works irrelatively to the Copy menu item state. Even if nothing is selected, Ctrl C will copy empty string to clipboard.
Comment 20 2011-03-22 12:16:19 UTC
The document needs to be saved, or exist, then the buttons are activated, ok another bug.
Somehow I missed that, while testing this in the cws.
The whole undo/redo machanism in basic is not that optimal, but that would also be another bug.
Comment 21 fyva 2011-05-04 11:07:33 UTC
dev300m106 - the buttons Undo and Redo are unusable.
Comment 22 Marcus 2017-05-20 11:29:52 UTC
Reset assigne to the default "".
