Description quixote9 2006-02-15 20:22:46 UTC
I thought this was a bug, but reading through old issues I saw that "restore
open windows" was supposed to re-open windows of a given doc.

That's not what I was looking for.  I'm looking for what amounts to a
"state-save".  I work on very long documents, and usually on one for some time.
 It gets real old, having to go through the same button clicks every time I
start the program, mainly because it seems so unnecessary.  All we need is a
check box for "state save" to allow OO to open in the last-used doc and at the
last-edit point.  

(Open at last edit point would be a nice feature for docs generally.  Other
issue reports imply this is now available.  ??  I've never come across it, but
will look again now.)

(I _hope_ this is not a duplicate.  I spent lots of time looking and searching,
but I'm new at this.  Apologies if it is a dup.)

well, there's Tools->Options...->>View->Restore, Tools->Options.
..->Load/Save->General->Load (see the help for what they do) and issue 60511, 
to which this issue is practically duplicate

*** This issue has been marked as a duplicate of 60511 ***
Comment 2 quixote9 2006-02-15 22:56:22 UTC
That was a fast response, lars.  Thanks.
I thought I'd made clear that 
    a) did not cause OO 2.0 to open in the last-used doc
    b) as I understood the response to another issue, related only to docs
within OO, not to OO itself.

    loads user-specific settings for a doc, but does not cause anything to be
open automatically on start-up or return to the last edit point.

If either of these options is supposed to do what I'm asking about, then my
question should be under "bugs" rather than "request for features".

I'm also not convinced that my question really is a duplicate of issue 60511. 
Yes, hibernate would have the desired effect on startup, but that sounds like an
alternative that would continue to use system memory and so on.  That would be
less-than-ideal.  Is it necessary, just to have OO remember the last-used doc?

Reassigned to ES.
Comment 4 lars 2006-02-16 13:24:12 UTC
you are right, these options only apply to documents when they are loaded, it 
does not apply to OOo itself to load with documents. You ask for a setting to 
open a specific (the current) document with OOo and restore the current caret 
position. Issue 60511 basically asks for the same thing when it wants to leave a 
document at the current cursor position and come back to this position (although 
not necessarily automatically and with the last configuration of toolbars etc. 
active). I see that this is slightly different, so I don't resolve this issue as 
duplicate for now.
Comment 5 eric.savary 2006-02-22 12:20:29 UTC
Remember the cursor position is a duplicate of issue 43146.
"Restore open windows" does not work as expected. Therfore it's a bug and not a

ES->MBA: please dispatch.
Comment 6 quixote9 2006-02-22 18:41:28 UTC
Do I need to submit the bug part of this, or does that get transferred
automatically?  i.e. what does "es -> mba, please dispatch" mean?

Thanks for your help and for an awesome program!
