Description avagula 2006-07-11 17:30:52 UTC
1. create spreadsheet
2. enter some data
3. save spreadsheet
4. switch to page break view
5. make some changes
6. save document
7. switch back to normal view

Save button is inactive. So when I close the document now, it will open next
time in page break view...

I checked with "2.0.2  German version WIN XP: [680m5(Build9011)]" and can
confirm the reported behaviour, but IMHO that's desired.

- pls. specify your OS and Platform!
- pls. explain, why do you believe that this is a DEFECT and should be changed!

I found it in win xp (OO.o 2.0.3rc5).
Why bug?
I usually check before sending a spreadsheet out how it will printed, using page
break preview and sometimes I make necessary changes (e.g. move some page
breaks). Usually I send documents to people who are not very familiar with
computer and spreadsheets and I can imagine they have never seen page break
preview and recieving such a document can confuse them.
I talked with Jody yesterday evening in IRC and he thinks also, that this looks
like bug.
Comment 3 Rainer Bielefeld 2006-07-12 06:46:26 UTC
I believe many user will see current behaviour as feature, not as a bug.

Comment 4 avagula 2006-07-12 07:47:56 UTC
In settings.xml are lines:
<config:config-item config:name="ShowPageBreakPreview"
config:type="boolean">true</config:config-item> (or false)
When view is switched to normal, this change is not counted as saveable change
and therefore no checks are performed and user can close document without saving.
This feature is useful vice versa: people often close document, forgetting to
switch back into normal view. So maybe you are right.

basically the same as Issue 28340 .

Should view settings trigger the changed flag ?
