Description dlanderson 2006-12-02 14:27:09 UTC
When editing a Master Document, using the Explorer Master Document view, and
entering File, Index, or new document components into the master document, the
new component is entered before the selected component. This is a problem
because users naturally want to enter components in a first-to-last order. For
example, the user will naturally want the Text to be at the head of the
document, but when a component (say file1.odt) is entered then the file1.odt
component precedes the Text component. Similarly, file2.odt is inserted before
Text or file1.odt, depending upon which is selected before the insertion. Then,
the user must manually drag the components into the desired first-to-last order.
This is tedious for master documents with a large number components. So, I
suggest that (1) a new components are entered after the selected component, (2)
to allow rapid entry of new components, the last entered component is
automatically selected in preparation for the entry of the next new component.
