Description Unknown 2002-05-23 09:50:27 UTC
When I save a document using a wordprocessor or spreadsheet, most of the time 
the first line of text in a textdocument or the A1-cell in a spreadsheet is 
descriptive enough to use as the filename. MS Office has the functionality to 
use this text as the default filename for a document, and it saves me the time 
to choose a filename (or, I can keep my mind at the document, and don't have to 
think about the filename at all). Being used to that, in I 
always copy/paste the first line, remove unwanted characters (like '/' or '\') 
from it and use that as filename. Can't this be automated?

I have written a little macro that does this for word processor documents. I wanted it 
for myself. Never thought of spreadsheets. It would be nice to have it done 
professionally, though:-)

Set to "NEW"
Comment 4 falko.tesch 2003-10-17 07:22:30 UTC
Use automated filenames.
Example: the first sentence in a Writer document is "My little
wordbook". Now Writer could suggest when saving the untitled new
document to name it to "My little wordbook" as a highlighted
suggestion in the "Save" file name text box of the "Save" dialogue
Writer: Use the first sentence on the first page (not header) as the
file name
Impress: If there is a title on the first pslide use its content
(otherwise do not)
Draw/Calc: Do not apply this feature!

Is issue #14077 a duplicate of this?

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
