Description ajorge 2003-07-31 05:19:31 UTC
It would be nice to be able to right-click on a file and select "Open read-only"
in addition to "Open" or "Print." It seems this is something the installer /
setup program could do easily, assuming there's a commandline option to open

Please have a look.
Comment 2 ajorge 2003-07-31 20:43:25 UTC
Perhaps a more appropriate name would be "View"

Yes, OOo already provides a -view switch.
You can already define an additional action yourself using the File-types and
programs configuration-utility (don't run windows, so I cannot tell you the name
of the menu items)
