Description ed2 2005-06-20 03:30:33 UTC
When the toolbars were redesigned for OOo2, all the buttons on the toolbars that
were "short click for default action, long click for choice of actions" were
replaced by buttons with a separate arrow button for the options.

When this was done, the "Up one level" button on the standard Open/Save dialog
boxes was not similarly ajusted, so is now inconsistent with the rest of the

This button should be redesigned to give it the same behavoir as all the other
similar buttons. Hope this makes sense.

Checked in the latest OOo 3 dev release, and this issue is still present as
originally described.

Please explain what you mean.

The "Up One Level" button in the built in file picker moves up one level if clicked briefly, and produces a menu clicked and held.

This is the only button remaining in AOO which behaves in this non standard way, all the others have been replaced with the usual split buttons with a drop-down arrow on the right.

Thank you ed2.
If not to be given the same behavior, at least indicate long click characteristic.
