Description aparan 2005-02-09 14:47:50 UTC
It would be useful for users who would use Writer [Web] as their web editor if a
View > web page in Browser option  is added to View menu.  This would make
Writer (Web) more suitable for editing web pages.

I don't really understand, what you request. The Writer/Web displays the
document in WebLayout (also has the option to display in Print Layout), so
please explain, what you mean by "web page in Browser" option.
Comment 2 aparan 2005-02-10 08:43:58 UTC
Some what like this: 

A temporary file with the most recent changes that the user makes to the
original web page will be output and opened in the default browser.  To this we
could add options like what browser the user likes to use - IE/Mozilla/Netscape
etc.  Further some keyboard shortcut could be assigned by default to this command. 
Comment 3 michael.ruess 2005-02-10 14:50:51 UTC
Yes, now I can understand... something -perhaps in "File.Send" menu- like "Send
to default browser" when editing in Writer/Web. Could be a good idea...
