Description tuharsky 2005-09-09 13:08:51 UTC
The entire selection of database entries I have done in step 6 of mail merge
wizard, should be able to load and save. Sometimes we deal with hundreds of
entries and we're not comfortable with doing the selection everytime from the

1, For the beginning, it could be enough if some checkbox "Remember selection
with file" caused, that when I save the text document, the selection would be
kept stored inside.

Next time I do mail merge on the same document, and I go to step 6, I would have
an option "Use saved selection" or not (thus go with blank one).

2, More sophisticated it would be, if I had an option to choose one of several
selections stored inside the document, and if I was able to delete particular ones.

3, Even more sophisticated if I was able to load selection even from different
file, and to choose one of several selections saved in that file.

The whole selection methodology seems for me to need some complex re-thinking or
some design change. From this point of view, issue is connected with
