Description cicade 2009-01-07 08:35:01 UTC
Made a button in a dia in design mode, the button links a spreadsheet to a dia.
Works fine in design mode. (click on button does open right file)
But in presentation mode this button is not vissible, and not working.

in design mode it is impossible to edit the button because it open when clicked
on. I cannot remove the button from design mode dia.

You have got to switch the mode of the button. Just click on the design mode
on/off button in the controls toolbar then you can delete the button.
Opening a spreadsheet during a running presentation works with an object and an
added interaction - but the spreadsheet odes not get into front. It is open in
the back when the presentation is ended. This is a Mac only issue, works under

reassigning to the expert on fullscreen-mode on OSX.
Comment 4 philipp.lohmann 2009-01-07 12:56:01 UTC
Please define: is the problem some kind of not visible button as stated in the
first comment or the opened calc not coming to front as in the third comment ?
The first should be investigated by someone who knows interactions and/or form
controls (whatever that button is), that is either af or fs.

If the second problem is the theme of this issue, this is probably "wontfix". No
document coming in front of the presentation is actually a feature (the
presentation needs to be in a higher layer than the dock and the menubar, so
above all normal windows also); it will not work on Unixes either (depending on
which window manager is in use). That this works on Windows is more by accident.

@pl: I was referring to the "button does not work" as I could reproduce it in
some way compared to the Windows behaviour. If it is not fixable - ok, bad luck.
@Cicade: is it possible to attach your document? Is the button a read button
(form control) or is it an object with an interaction? Thanks in advance.
