Description realgrouchy 2008-02-28 21:16:19 UTC
(A quick but broad search did not appear to return any similar issues. Apologies
if it is a dupe.)

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a Writer document
2. Go to "Format > Page"
3. Click on the "Columns" tab of the formatting dialog
4. Close the dialog.
(Optional 4b: close OOo, close the quickstarter, restart the OS, do the hokey-pokey)
5. Re-open OOo to a Writer document
6. Go to "Format > Page"

Expected behaviour: 
The formatting dialog should open up to the "Page" tab

Actual behaviour:
The formatting dialog opens up to the "Columns" tab.

While this could be considered useful for users who frequently want to revisit
the columns tab, there is a "Format > Columns" link already, so having the
"Format > Page" item go to the most recently used tab in the formatting dialog
is redundant.

Currently this is a feature and works as designed. All tab dialogs in OOo will
remember the last visited tab page in a dialog so that the dialog will open up
with the last used tab.
What I can imagine for the future is perhaps an option, that when active will
reset tab dialogs to a default tab after it has been used.
