Description honeyjar 2006-01-20 14:08:44 UTC
Floating toolbars should remember position even when ouside the document window

(OOo 2.0.1 IT, Windows XP SP2)

1. open OOo 2.0.1 Writer
2. resize the window to occupy 50% the width of the screen
3. position the window on the _left_ half of the screen
3. Drag the Standard toolbar in the center of the document window (so it will
become a floating toolbar)
4. Drag the floating toolbar over the _right_ half of the screen (i.e. outside
the document window)
5. close OOo 2.0.1 Writer
6. Open OOo 2.0.1 Writer
7. BUG: the standard toolbar has been repositioned within the document window

this is particulary annoying with modern 16:10 laptops where every single pixel
of height must be used and ther's spare horizontal space...

P.s.: OOo 1.1 did _not_ have this prolem

Works for me with OOo-dev m151 WinXP SP2.
Closing and opening Writer again the toolbar remains in the previous position.

Honeyjar, feel free to reopen it if you can reproduce with latest release (m151).

Thank you.

Comment 2 honeyjar 2006-01-23 15:57:09 UTC
tested it against m151 and reproduces consistently.

Additional info (screenshots do follow):
- I disabled & closed the quickstarter before beginning the tests
- I kept 2.0.1 IT installed into the system

Can confirm now with OOo-dev m151 Win98SE.

Dont know why I couldn't reproduce with WinXP SP2 last night.

cd: Accepted.
Comment 7 carsten.driesner 2006-01-25 14:20:40 UTC
cd: Root cause: The Office layout manager uses two calls to set the position and
size of every toolbar (user didn't change the size). Due to a feature in VCL
it's not possible to move a toolbar outside of the desktop (VCL automatically
position it back to make it fully visible). As the layout manager first set the
position and afterwards the size, this feature results in bad toolbar position.
To fix this issue the layout manager has to first set the size and afterwards
the position.

CJ->CD: I agree to honeyjar, this bug is annoying and decreases the satisfaction
to work with OO.o. However, if a fix is not too risky we should fix this in OO.o
2.02 release. 
Comment 9 carsten.driesner 2006-01-26 12:34:11 UTC
cd: As this fix is very easy and simple (I only have to change the order of
calls). I set this issue upon approval by user experience to PP2 as it has some
very annoying effects.
Comment 10 carsten.driesner 2006-01-26 12:40:32 UTC
cd: Fixed.
Comment 11 carsten.driesner 2006-01-31 16:29:41 UTC
cd->tm: Please verify. As honeyjar described you have to move the toolbars to
the right side of the desktop. Please resize the toolbars to have a smaller
width. Close the document and open it again. The toolbars should be place at
exactly the same position as before.
