Description ed2 2004-09-05 22:54:43 UTC
In the latest developer builds, to add toolbar button using the customisation
window, you have to bring up a window with the list of available buttons, which
you have to exit and start again for every command you want to add! In previous
versions (1.1.x), the list of buttons was integrated into the customisation window.

Surely it would make newer versions of OOo much easier to use if the command
list was reintegrated into the toolbar customisation window, in a similar way to
previous OOo versions.

TM->BH: Not a bug, but might be a wish for an enhancement in our new "customize
toolbars" implementation. Please have a look.

You should not need to exit the Add Commands dialog each time you add a new
command to a toolbar. If that is happening then it is a bug. The workflow
should be as follows:

- Open the Customize Toolbar tabpage
- Click the Add... button to open the Add Commands dialog
- Navigate to a command, then click the Add button or drag the command to
  the toolbar. Note the change is also instantly applied to the toolbar
  in the document window.
- You can then select another command and add it, you don't need to exit the

Let me know if this not working for you

I can only confirm "toconnor" in that it is NOT necessary to close the "add
commands dialog" for every sinle command (checked on OOo 1.9.65, Win XP).
However, in general, I agree with "ed2" that the change from OOO1.1.x to 1.9.x
to add an extra window is unnecessary. Working with two overlapping windows is
more complicated than the "all-in-one-window" solution of OOo1.1.
Status "new", since the issue is correctly marked as "enhancement".

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
