Description mmeeks 2003-06-11 14:47:38 UTC
Unless it's a feature that Insert->Symbol doesn't default to the symbol font;
this'd be great to see in OO.o at some stage:

How controversial can this be to get into 1.1 ? surely it's a trivial
ergonmic fix ? and the code is mind-blowingly dumb.
Comment 3 bettina.haberer 2004-01-30 20:50:07 UTC
As special characters are a part within the font-codepage, the symbol font will
not be defaulted here. Defaulting symbolfont makes sense, when the insert
special dialog would get enhanced with a further Symbol-tabpage.

Hello Andreas, as this issue has been changed to patch (by mh) please evaluate,
what should happen with the offered solution. Thank you.
Comment 5 andreas.martens 2004-05-18 11:49:36 UTC
If we accept the patch we improve the ergonomic to insert symbol. But it would
be more difficult to insert a non symbol character :-(
I think BH is right when she proposed an additional tabpage for the specila
character dialog. This would be my preferred solution, too. So I don't accept
the proposed patch and change the task to "Enhancement" again.

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