When I open files in Writer, I routinely open all of them in the same character
set and with the same paragraph break setting. Recently, I opened 50 in a row,
all with the same settings.

To the ASCII Filter Options dialog, under the OK button, please add a button for
"OK for All". Clicking it would be the same as clicking the simple OK for each
dialog of the same type. The new button should apply only to the files already
waiting to be opened. When the user again gives the Open command, the dialog
should reappear at that time.

When this dialog is the only visible step between files being opened,
eliminating the dialog after the first would save appreciable time during

If it is possible that the available settings vary by file type, such that a
setting that doesn't exist for the first file in the series might be desirable
for another file waiting to open, the OK for All function should cease operating
upon encountering the latter file, causing the dialog to reappear so the user
can choose options and, perhaps, click OK for All again.

As a bonus enhancement, when multiple files are being opened but the user is not
using the OK for All button, once only one file is left awaiting opening, the OK
for All button should be dimmed or unavailable.

I'm using OOo Writer 2.4.0 without Java Runtime Environment on Linux Fedora Core
4 with Gnome 2.10.0 desktop on a Pentium 4 laptop. I didn't see this feature.

Thank you.
