Description zephyrus 2008-12-22 04:04:32 UTC
I often access read-only file (file which I can't modify, or I don't want to
modify by accident such as company policy file, or company-wide
template file).

OO 2.4 fails to remember that I accessed such files in the past,
and not list them in the recently used document list which is
shown from the top-level [FILE] menu entry.

It seems that OO2.4 only remembers the file(s) if I save them.

This is very inconvenient when I need to access such files in
read-only server, etc..

Looks like it's a duplicate of issue 65543

Right! This is indeed a duplicate.

Despite the discussion in issue 65543, I do hope that OOo shows all the
recently VISITED file (by means of File->Open).
Read-only, or read/write attributes should not matter.

The user is interested in WHAT files he/she visited recently and
wants to open them WITHOUT typing the longish pathnames. 

Computer programs should help users, and reducing the typing amount is
one such good help.
