Description lars 2002-08-04 00:29:44 UTC
if a user edits a "new spreadsheet" the first time and the pre-defined cell 
mask changes the data the user entered for the first time, so that it displays 
differently, or whenever that happens after a load process of a document that 
the OOo pre-defined mask is applied the first time, display a small square in 
the corner of the cell - clicliking on that signals whether or not the user 
likes this "auto-mask" to occur and so whether this pre-defined mask should be 
used during the session or not and the "text mask" (that's the normal WYSIWYG) 
is "used".

Hi Falko,
Comment 2 falko.tesch 2003-10-08 13:49:01 UTC
Please re-write what you want.
I do not understand you at all.
Comment 3 lars 2003-10-08 14:31:22 UTC
this issue is an example of the usefulness of issue 7185 (implement 
user support functionality: warning types get users attention):

the first time one of OOos predefined masks is applied ask the user 
in a dialogue whether he liked this or whether he wants to undo this 
and use the text mask instead and also offer the tick field "do this 
everytime". (remembering: that dialogue is transparent, small in 
size, and not must-be-closed-first)

back to you
Comment 5 falko.tesch 2003-10-13 13:23:35 UTC
OK, you want to warn the users that "AutoFormat" is in the making.

Like in Writer pop-up the Help Agent when AutoFormatting (like
tranfering a number into a date) take action.

This issue should be re-thought once the new AutoGFormat defaults for
2.0 gone life.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
