Description viccannost 2008-09-12 22:09:03 UTC
I have files that have links to external data. When files are opened get window
which asks  " The file.....should they be updated."  When "Yes" is clicked it
stays highlighted but there is no indication that updating is taking place other
than the odd flicker in the spreadsheet. Would be nice if once "Yes" is clicked,
that there be a new msg. window with "please wait, updating proceeding" or
something along these lines to indicate things are proceeding normally or error
msg. if it isn't.  Thx.

Additionally this process should be made fluid enough, i.e update should be done
in the background without the whole OOo and all it's its forks hanging. That way
updating every 5 seconds or so wont leave calc in a sate of trance all the time.
