Description crxssi 2005-11-30 21:14:29 UTC
When you open a new drawing in OpenOffice 2.0, it displays an extremely annoying
"Page Pane" on the left of the document view area.  It also displays it whenever
any Draw document is opened.

It can be turned off temporarily with View->Page Pane.  But it is impossible to
make it stay OFF as the default, all the time.

If you change the position or size of the page pane, it remembers that.  If you
change it to be a separate window, it remembers that.  But if you turn it off,
it will not remember that.

99% of the Draw documents I create (and most people create) are a single page. 
Having the Page Pane always on:

1) Is very distracting
2) Wastes Screen Space
3) Wastes computer CPU time and memory resources because it has to double-draw
everything that is going on in the main document window.

I consider that to be a defect, not an enhancement.  However as a separate issue
of enhancement, it would be nice if the previous (OpenOffice 1.X) behavior of a
small, non-graphical, "slide view" be available at the bottom of the screen.

Reproducible. Reassigned.

I found out, that even the close-button [x] of the Page Pane doesn't work. If I
click on it it doesn't close the pane. I will have to use View > Page Pane.

The last described behaviour is already fixed internally (i64596).
Comment 4 crxssi 2007-10-26 17:22:01 UTC
I reported this issue almost two years ago.  It is still not fixed in OpenOffice
2.1, 2.2, or 2.3.  I verified it today.

How about adding some codes to preserve the visibility state of panes 
corresponding to the slots:

to a user configuration file like 
user/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/Draw.xcu or Impress.xcu

in a method such as void ViewShellBase::Implementation::SetPaneVisibility(...) 
which is called from void ViewShellBase::Execute (SfxRequest& rRequest)
in sd/source/ui/view/ViewShellBase.cxx ?

And then, retrieve the visibility statuses and assign them to the controller 
right after a new Draw/Impress document is created.

Although I reported it almost 8 years ago, this bug/issue is still not resolved in 3.4.1.  Interestingly, it has been fixed in LibreOffice 4.0.0.

Reset assigne to the default "".
