Description xonoxf 2007-05-15 10:41:23 UTC
When writer is running as an OLE server for another application, but in its own
window (not using inplace activation), the zoom menu entry is disabled.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Microsoft Excel
2. Choose Insert / Object / OpenDocument Text and tick the checkbox to insert as
an icon (this prevents inplace activation)
3. Writer opens in a separate window with the zoom menu item disabled

1. This works fine in Impress, Calc, Math and Draw. Only Writer disables the zoom.
2. It does make sense to disable the zoom feature when the OLE server is running
with inplace activation (embedded in the container window), because then the
zoom should be controlled by the container application. However, this is not
true when running in a separate window.

MRU->OS: it is not necessary anymore to disable the zoom factor in Writer
outplace window. This mode is only available to iconified objects, so the window
size does not refer to the object's size in the container anymore.

@mru: I think that isn't true. We still use the "window size is object size" and
I hesitate to do this change right away, at least then we should make the code
controlling the object size aware of the feature (or check if it already is).

But in general I think that from a user's POV the request is justifiable.
