Description umr5174 2005-03-18 12:49:55 UTC
Hello !

It'd be a good idea to add, in Tools : Options : : appearance,
an "Apply" button, so that the user could easily try different sets of colours,
without making the "Appearance" box disappear by clicking "OK".

I'm not the original reporter, but I also can see the lack of an apply button as
a problem

There are several other requests for "Apply" buttons dating back to 2001.
I'm posting this message in all of them.

Does anyone know an effective way to join them, to add the votes, to raise
visibility with developers ?

These are found looking for the word "Apply" in the subject:

2374 (ui) add Apply button in Options to avoid having to re-drill down
10173 (Drawing) Apply button to dialogs
15582 (Word processor) Implement 'Apply changes' option
24443 (Word processor) change button name of style catalog: ok -> apply
45396 (framework) "Apply" button in "Appearance" box
51333 (framework) Add "Apply" button to dialogs "Tools-Options" and
67133 (framework) apply button in options tab
67848 (Chart) add a button 'Apply' on the dialog 'Object Properties'

In the meantime, I hope you'd consider voting for all of them.

IMHO apply changes immediately is better than adding button.
