Description Unknown 2003-09-14 08:43:10 UTC
In previous versions of OpenOffice and StartOffice the popup window for Stylist
(Function key 11) has had window decoration that included the minimise/restore
and close buttons. 1.1RC3 and RC4 (I didn't try RC2 or earlier 1.1 builds) don't
have these buttons.

Change to feature. 

It is useful, if we can have other button in the stylist, instead of
only close. 
I suggest:
Comment 2 Unknown 2003-09-16 10:19:11 UTC
Oh, yes please! I accidentally undocked the function bar and couldn't
work out how to re-dock it. A dock button would be very helpful, as
would the minimise. 

If I can take your suggestion one step further, context sensitive help
would be good to include. However, that probably shouldn't be on
window decoration...

And if I want to be really, really pushy, I'd ask for the window to be
transparent. I usually want to see the styles and if I select the
window to foreground, I will want to select them, but until then I
want to see through a non-opaque background in the stylist window and
to have the text of the stylist in lightgrey until selected. The
stylist dialogue shouldn't really be, IMO, a modal dialogue interface.
It's naturally a drop down, like the font selection.

I think that for real "style-sheet-style" editing, the properties on
the function bar (font, size, bold, colour) should be completely
dismissable, replaced entirely by the styles from the stylist.
However, that's really pie-in-sky-nowhere-near-1.1-release stuff :-)

Something else I've noticed is that the focus remains on the stylist
after the double-click minimise. I'm not sure how to make the focus
shift to the application, but I don't think it is helpful to anyone to
keep the keyboard focus on a minimised window.

If/when you fix up the minimise/dock/other buttons, could you look at
putting keyboard focus back on the application, to reduce mouse

I'm using a default GNOME config on Debian 3.0, no changes to focus
policy or window decoration that I can recall making. The WM is sawfish.

Configure your window manager to draw window-borders with the
appropriate controls.
OOo now uses the system's features to draw its windows.

The applied styles are available as a dropdown, next to the font-selector.
You can redoch the window using <ctrl> while dragging.
You can place the stylist outside the OOo window so it doesn't cover
your text.
Again your window manager is responsible for the focus handling

see issue 14949 for an explanation on how to use sawfish-ui to create
a rule to draw borders for a class of windows.
