Description Manfred 2014-05-26 12:18:32 UTC
Open a big sheet in Landscape-Size.
Save sheet.
Open a small sheet, before saved in a size more narrow.
The small sheet will open in Landscape mode...


Couldn't find a preference to say: Save document size on close.
Comment 1 Manfred 2014-06-13 13:31:31 UTC
no one the same problem?

Every document in calc opens as big as the last saved and closed document.
No matter that the newly opened document is bigger or smaller.

AOO 4.0.1 and 4.1, Mac OS 10.9 64bit

AFAIK the window size is stored per application, not per document.
Per document, only the "view data" is stored (current cell cursor position, for example).
The logic behind might be "the container window is not part of the document model nor the document view".

It seems so; unless you convince a developer that this is a bug and s/he fixes it; for now, this works as designed.

I'll remove the question sign from the summary, the window size is not saved within the document, it's save per module (vid. officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/Setup.xcu, ooSetupFactoryWindowAttributes; and framework/source/helper/persistentwindowstate.cxx)

Thanxs, now I will not die stupid.


But it would be a feature, everybody would profit from…

Thank you for forwarding it to "ENHANCEMENT"!

It is annoying to change window-size with every newly opened document.
In every other App I know, the window-size is stored inside the document…

Sorry about my english, I am from Germany at not very familiar with american english… but I give my best.
