Description norbert2 2005-02-26 20:22:56 UTC
I found some inconsistencies concerning the new-document drop-down-button of the
Standard-toolbar, if when using it to creat new documents:

- calc: the button stays as calc-button while the document is open. after
closing  the document it changes back to writer-button

- impres: - after confirming the window to create the new document
("Presentation Wizard", the button changes back to writer
          - if the "Presentation Wizard" is canceled, the impress-button is kept

- drawing behaves like calc

- database behaves like impress (with "Database Wizard" instead of "Presentation

==> applications with wizard change the button back to writer before closing the
docuent, while applications without wizard change back the button to writer when
closing the document. Further on the applications with wizard keep there button
when canceling the wizard.

I don't like these inconsistent behaviours. 

In my oppinion always the last button should be kept so that a single click on
this button always opens a document of the last used type!

mci -> cj:

Please have a look at this issue. I didn't find a spec (-entry) which about this

Office should show either the icons of the current used documenttype or should
always show the same icon...
