Description gaborf 2005-05-28 11:40:43 UTC
I would always like to see everything in WebLayout first.
Funny thing is that native documents (*odt) preserve this view if they are saved
and closed in this view. However, if I choose to save as *doc, it will revert to
PrintView upon opening.
As for brand new documents: I created my own template, saved it as *ott (writer
template), defined as default - all this in WebLayout. Now all the new writer
files open in WebLayout.
To avoid *doc files opening in Print View, I created a macro and assigned it to
Events>Open document. This works for *all* text documents which, unfortunately,
means, that all *odt documents (closed in WebLayout and therefore expected to
open so again) will be reverted to PrintView, since the macro is able only to
*change* the layout whatever it is.
Request: Would it be possible to introduce an option somewhere that all text
documents and text templates (either brand new or reopened for zillionth time)
should open in WebLayout OR PrintView, depending on the user's choice and
irrespective of the format (so *odt, *doc etc. behave alike)?
Thank you.
