Description shmuelh 2005-07-20 14:18:52 UTC
It would be nice if one could set as a default that when Writer opens it does so
with the last document used already open.

As not everyone would want such a feature, it could be a setting in the
configuration setup.

Framework issue.

Shouldn't this be covered in Tools.Options.View.Restore?

Hi shmuelh, 
thanks for using and supporting

I think this is not a defect but an enhancement wish
I'll reassign this issue to requirements who is responsible for such issues...
Comment 3 mci 2005-07-20 15:00:18 UTC
changed issue type from "defect" to "enhancement"
Comment 4 Rainer Bielefeld 2005-09-04 12:29:57 UTC
I do not believe that that is a good idea. This one click to "recent documents"
should not be too much work, but I would not like it if OOo starts automatically
with the 2000 pages master document I finished last day ;-)
And if I edited 4 documents in time, with which should OOo start? With that one
OOo incidentally saved as the last one after EXIT?

  This would would be even more useful with a tabbed interface.  If you close
with 5 or 10 documents open and it opens them all the next time you start the
program, that would save a lot more effort than going through -- File, Recent
Documents, <name-of-recent-document> -- just once.

  Its certainly handy when I have 15 tabs open in Firefox (like I do right now)
and close Firefox to shut down and take my laptop elsewhere.

  And it looks like 12686 addresses making a tabbed interface.
