cd: Must be moved to OOo 3.3. No support for a enhanced specification from the
UX team.

cd: Due to limited time and too many issues I have to move this issue to the
next release.
Comment 5 carsten.driesner 2009-11-10 08:47:21 UTC
cd: Reminder: We need an updated specification for the Start Center.

cd->fl: PING! Please find the patch for the recent document list button in the
start center attached.To integrate this patch we need an updated specification
for the start center.

Hi Philipp, as discussed: Please add the recent file menu to the Start Center.
The "Open a document..." button will be renamed to 'Open...' and converted into
a menu button. The menu shows the same content like the recent file menu in
'File-Recent Files'. The left 'Open...' part still calls the Open dialog.

Hi - I'm reopening this issue because it doesn't work as supposed on this issue
under DEV300m83 : the file menu for recent document doesn't open when clicking
on the arrow. Also alt+down arrow doesn't open the list
The label of the button is not correctly align under this others above - Sophie
Comment 16 Olaf Felka 2010-06-19 10:12:43 UTC
See issue 111992.
@ sgauti: Please be more detailed. What operating system?
Comment 17 Olaf Felka 2010-06-19 10:13:09 UTC
Comment 18 merschmann 2010-06-21 17:15:11 UTC
Reopening again.
I think sgauti forgot to cc herself.
See the discussion on the branding list

Clicking the arrow-down does not open the list of recent files. Can confirm
under WinXP.
