Description paulo.m.costa 2008-02-11 10:20:12 UTC
When a database is created in Openoffice.org it is very difficult to find it
again in case you want to delete it.
It took me ages to find them out in Tools-Options-Openoffice.org Base-Databases

This is not nuser friendly at all.  A user typically goes to Tools-Options to
change the general behaviour of the application, not to perform an user action
like deleting a database.

The list of existing databases should be shown in the OpenOffice.org Base wizard
instead.

By the way, it is very strange that although the list of databases is shown in
Tools-Options-Openoffice.org Base-Databases, the OpenOffice.org Base Wizard does
not seem to find them. In Select database - Open an existing database there is
no such list.. This is the place where it should be.

deleting a databes isn't an usur typical work

The listbox "Open an existing database" shows only the latest databases you open.

"deleting a databes isn't an usur typical work"

Well, it it is very common thing for anyone like me that was trying it for the
first time an got it wrong. I imagine it may happen to all new database users.....

"The listbox "Open an existing database" shows only the latest databases you open."
I am sorry, in that case may be it should say "open one of the most recently
used databases, and exercise your pacience looking for the other ones in the
menu system... " :-( 

I am trying to get OpenOffice.org Base more user friendly. That is just what I
want...
