Description lohmaier 2005-01-19 22:54:43 UTC
Open spreadsheet.

Chose View|Page break preview

-> view changes. fine.

Now try to uncheck View|Page break preview

-> nothing happens.

This is far from being intuitive. This menu is the only menu where you can
toggle one thing on, but are not able to untoggle it.

Instead, you have to change to normal view using another option.

Solution: Either remove the "nomal view" entry and let OOo behave like in OOo
1.1.x or 
Don't use the chekmarks ("hooks") to mark the view, but the option-toggles, like
in the Window-Menu where the bullet marks the current window.

this has changed with the followinf specification :

I'm sorry but this was done to make the conversion for Excel users easier. This
may be un-intuitive for longtime OOo users but this is how it works now.

Comment 3 lohmaier 2005-02-01 20:20:45 UTC
reopen issue. I think you misunderstood me.

I don't want to have a single, toggable entry in the menu.

But I don't want the entry to pretend it is one.

currently it is

 [ ] Normal
 [X] Page break preview

but it should be

 ( ) Normal
 (o) Page break preview

The menu should not have a checkmark-icon (which means that the item can be
toggled on/off independently from other options) but an option-bullet (which
means: you have to choose between one of the choices). See the Window-menu for a
example of the bullets. You can only have one active window at a time -> option
bullets. See View|Toolbars for the checkmarks. You can toggle the toolbars
on/off independently -> checkmark-controls.

Hi Falko,

please decide.

Comment 5 falko.tesch 2005-02-02 11:36:21 UTC
FT: I agree with you.
FT->MMP: Please re-consider your decision on menu change for OO.o 2.0. I
strongly recommend to return zo OO.o 1.x status.

Comment 8 matthias.mueller-prove 2005-05-10 13:57:07 UTC
changed component to UI, because it affects all modules with a View menu.

cd: Due to heavy workload for OOo 2.0.1, we have to retarget this issue. It
doesn't change any function, but only a cosmetic problem. We need to change our
XML based toolbar user interface file format, to provide information about radio
menu items.

So how comes that the Window-menu already is capable of using the bullet/radio
option icons?
Comment 11 carsten.driesner 2005-05-25 09:16:05 UTC
cd->cloph: There is an easy explanation for this. The window menu is a special
implementation which creates all menu items on demand and can therefor set the
correct properties for them. The "View" menu entries are defined in the menubar
XML file, so nobody knows that these entries are part of a radio group!

cd: Accepted.
