Description hans_werner67 2005-08-04 09:46:33 UTC
Open dialog to create an external link via 'Insert'-'Link to external data' is
misleading. If you enter an URL you have to press ENTER (no information about
it); if not, you will wait for enabling the OK-button by the programm. But this
will never happen... Great design. Good example for an UI-Bug or missing
documentation inside the form.

Please change the dialog for this.

Thx., Frank

Hi Daniel,

your construction site ?

This sounds like it needs UI changes or something. Needs some specification first. 
Anyway, effort may be too high for 2.0.1.

FT->FMA: I agree, it is a well known issue and the solution on external data was
comprmised to a minimum.
Nevertheless we ain an a complete new design than incoporates ALL external data
(not only HTML) in one dialog/wizard.
Given the very tight timeframes for PP1 and PP2 there will be no time to make
another Ui change (which includes also a change in documentation).

FT: I'm leaving, so I will re-assign thbis issue to you. If zou still consider
this issue crucial please be so kind and write a spec and submit it, thx.
