Description ed2 2004-12-15 10:33:05 UTC
In previous OOo versions, when the toolbar customisation dialog was opened, all
toolbar list boxes (LoadURL, Font NAme, Font Size, etc) were replaced by
outlines, with edges that could be dragged, to change the size of the list box
that would appear when the customisation was complete.

In OOo 1.9_m65, this does not appear to happen, and hence there does not appear
to be any way of changing the width of any of the list boxes on the toolbars.

hi ed2,

thanks for using and supporting

We have a completely new toolbar concept in OOo2.0.

reassigned to cj


Hi cj, 
I can't find anything about this in the spec. 
Please take over and clearify this ...

mci -> ssa:

Hi ssa, 
as dicussed with cj I send this issue to you

This works in OOo1.1.x and doesn't work in OOo1.9m6x...
This is a "nice to have"  feature (and we should get it back) 
==> I lowered the priority since there are more important issues ...)
Comment 3 stephan_schaefer 2005-01-28 16:45:32 UTC
Someone has to call Toolbox::SetCustomizeMode() and then we have to fix all
arising problems due to the new toolbar implementation. But I would say we
should give it a try.

CD: May be we have a chance to reawake this feature, it will need some more work
to do.
Comment 5 f00fbug 2005-03-04 14:50:31 UTC
This is a duplicate of issue #35225...
Comment 6 carsten.driesner 2005-03-17 08:24:08 UTC
cd: New target as this cannot be fixed in OOo 2.0 time frame.
Comment 7 carsten.driesner 2005-05-24 07:51:33 UTC
cd: We have to retarget this issue again as we already have to many issue for
OOo 2.0.1. As described before this is a nice to have feature, but not as
important as many other issues.

3 years on & still no progress in OOo 3...

This seems such a basic thing, even Microsoft can do it! (& has always done it?)

In fact every other application I run seems to do it.

What do we need to do to wake this up?
