Description khbellgardt 2004-04-27 14:49:04 UTC
When new objects are created in OOo draw no default name is given to them.
Therefore, they do not appear in the navigator. To make the objects accessible
by the navigator one has to name the object amnually.

Since the navigator is very convenient for selection of objects that are
positioned behind other objects, it would be very helpful to give them a default
name at creation, e.g. Line01, Circle15 ...

Oh thanks for that. But I think I set issue type to defect, that seems to be one.
Changed the summary a little bit.

Thats not a defect but a design decision taken years ago.
Draw documents could potentionaly contian a huge amount of drawing objects.
The navigator was designed to navigate through contents of a document.
It was decided that we don't wan't to have each shape in the navigator, for the
same reason the writer does not have each paragraph inside the navigator.

Wolfram, please close this issue or convert it to a feature request and send to
user expirience

okay, the reason not to use the default-object-names in the navigator is
acceptable, everything would be overcrowded.
however, there must be an info on that in the help-files, and that they are
shown when named.

I believe it is a good idea to have the "grouped" drawing objects with
default-names in the navigator, as with the navigator they are much easier to

ince OOo 3.x in DRAW we have the selector iocn whether only "Named Shapes" or "All Shapes" should be shown in Navigator.

So no longer a problem (althouh not fixed), OBSOLETE
