Description matthias.mueller-prove 2005-01-17 11:22:09 UTC
- Open several windows for a Writer document (Window>New Window)
- Change one window view to Web Layout (View>Web Layout, was View>Online Layout
in OOo1.1)
=> all other windows but the Web Layout Window close. 

Idea: keep them open.  Displaying a document in paper layout mode and in web
layout mode adds to the flexibility of OOo Writer

Hello Matthias, the closing of all documents in print layout is not
reproducable, all the documents keep open (checked in build 8831). Can you
reproduce it on other current builds too?
Comment 2 matthias.mueller-prove 2005-01-17 12:20:27 UTC
this issue is about multiple windows for one documenti (Window>New Window)
Comment 3 bettina.haberer 2005-01-17 12:25:07 UTC
Yes, I realized it in the meantime :). That behaviour does not make much sense.

I noticed that, if effect, "Web Layout" is not supported for multiple windows
(views) of the same document in Writer.

Using:   1:3.1.1-1ubuntu1~jaunty1

Reproduce (1):
1. Open a Writer document (can be new, empty, unsaved if you wish).
2. View-->"Web Layout"
3. Window-->"New Window".  BUG: "New Window" is grayed out, unavailable.

Reproduce (2):
1. Open a Writer document (can be new, empty, unsaved if you wish).
2. View-->"Print Layout"
3. Window-->"New Window".  A new window/viewport pops up.
4. On one of thees windows: View-->"Web Layout".  BUG: All except for one of the
windows for that document close.

I don't see why Web Layout is not supported.  It also made me unsure about the
"New Window" feature - I thought it was totally broken until I had to discover
this bug on my own.  Also, in the steps of "reproduce (2)", there is no warning
that all of those windows and their scroll positions will be lost if I switch to
Web Layout.

All in all, this is unexpected behavior.
