Description mjneedles 2004-07-19 22:25:27 UTC
Do the following:

In an HTML document, Insert->from File, and check on the "preview" checkbox.

If it was already checked, the preview pane will not be open, even if you click
on a graphic file in the file pane.  You have to uncheck the Preview box and
re-check it to get the preview pane to open.

This problem only appears only in Writer/Web while inserting a graphic

pb -> tra: this only happens with the system dialog

Just happens with WriterWeb, all other applications work well. It's only
apparent in the system file open dialog because our own dialog is not able to
hide the preview. The XFilePreview interface has a method 'setShowState' which
displays or hides the preview obviously the client of the file open dialog only
sets the value of the 'Preview' checkbox but doe not call 'setShowState'.

OS->TRA: Your assumption is wrong. The dialog is used in the same way in Writer
Web as in the Writer. The difference is that in WriterWeb the Link-Checkbox is
checked and set to disabled. This seems to break the preview function of the
