Description jwr 2007-07-24 16:19:14 UTC
Problem description:
Some users create a .csv file with Calc and add a second sheet. 
They spend hours working on these sheets and 
then save one of these sheets as "csv". Then they close Calc. 

Expected behaviour: 
After "saving" and "saving as" users expect to reopen the complete spreadsheet,
including formatting and all (multiple) sheets.

Unexpected behaviour: 
When they reopen Calc and reload the .csv-file, 
only the active sheet at the saving point will be reopened. 
Changes to other (inactive) sheets in the spreadsheets will be lost.

Enhancement request:
Most of the problems by misunderstanding, data-losses, and ill-will 
might be avoided if the button "Save As" for limited formats (such as csv) 
would be moved to "File - Export".
This way, a user can never have the impression 
that he correctly saved all the data he is working on.

reassigning features and enhancements to user which
will be the default owner for those tasks (was introduced some time ago)

There is warning "Only the active sheet was saved."
