Description davide 2003-07-08 12:47:07 UTC
I've enabled the option:

Tools -> Options -> Load/Save -> General -> Save -> Before modifies properties.

The Properties Windows appears everytime I try to export a PDF file of the same
document, even when the Title has been set.

This does not happen when I save a document. The dialog appear just once.

cp->mba: confirmed, saving as ms.doc asks once to change properties,
pdf asks each time. is this you ? which is the desired behavior when
doing "save as ..." ? The check mark refers to "save".

Seems strange, but it's not a showstopper -> OOo2.0
Comment 3 lohmaier 2003-07-14 21:30:48 UTC
cp forgot to actually change status to new...
Comment 4 Mathias_Bauer 2004-01-07 14:41:21 UTC
This is not a bug, it's possibly an unfortunate feature.

The dialog is shown everytime when the document is saved under a new name. An
"export to PDF" of course always exports to a "new" name, because the name of
the document never is the name of the pdf file.

So perhaps we shouldn't show the dialog on export (not SaveAs!) at all, or only
if the document never has been saved before (and still is "untitled"). ATM I
would like to chose the first alternative, but I'm open for discussions.

Frank, what is your opinion about this matter?

FL->MMP: As discussed. Seems to be your part due to PDF properties.

Comment 10 philipp.lohmann 2005-02-22 17:45:49 UTC
If i understand correctly this has nothing to do with PDF but with export UI in
general ? This is something for you and your's then, isn't it ?
Comment 11 Mathias_Bauer 2005-02-23 09:23:37 UTC
Sorry, but this bug handling is not acceptable to me. My question is still not
answered, would you please give us your opinion about the dialog?

I am no longer officially active on OOo. Please take over.
Comment 13 Mathias_Bauer 2010-05-14 14:39:51 UTC

Just to get rid of that issue (because a fix could be easy, depending on the
decision what to do):

Is it OK to never ask for property input when "exporting" (not "saving") documents?
Comment 14 oooforum (fr) 2017-04-07 07:52:42 UTC
Still continue with AOO 4.1.3

Reset assigne to the default "".
