Description Oliver Brinzing 2007-02-22 13:59:32 UTC

i will suggest the following enhancements for the filepicker dialog:

- Deleting a file via contextmenu does not move it into a trash folder.
  It should be possible, to configure oo (tools -> options -> load/save)
  to move all files to a user\trash folder instead of deleting it immediately.
  This can prevent the loss of data, cause most users think, that deleted files     
  can be restored ...

- allow configuring some more buttons, where a user can change with one click
  between user defined folders, for example allow to add more folders to the
  tools -> options -> -> path -> working directory or add
  a second entry for this kind of paths ...

  button1:  c:\documents\user        (standard working dir)
  button2:  d:\share\shared-folder
  button3:  x:\server\shared ...

both enhancements will lead to a better customizable oo ...

basically you want OO native file-picker dialog to behave like WinXP one,

yes, but without any platform integration :-)

maybe you have a look at SO 5.2 filepicker. It was possible to open a menu by
clicking on the working-dir button ... and it was possible to add bookmarks to
the list ... 

Our users missing this feature ... :-)

> allow configuring some more buttons

workaround (undocumented feature):

>>  you can add your own paths to the home-icon (top left),
>>  which will then have an arrow.
>>  Do this by adding the environmental variable "PathFavourites"
>>  to your system.
>>  Steps for Windows:
>>  - This computer
>>  - Advanced
>>  - Environmental variables
>>  - New ... Name "PathFavourites" ... value: the full paths separated by ";"
