Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 118724] New: Floating Table toolbar should not appear and should not reappear after being closed
Date Wed, 04 Jan 2012 22:11:49 GMT

             Bug #: 118724
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: Floating Table toolbar should not appear and should
                    not reappear after being closed
    Classification: Application
           Product: Word processor
           Version: OOo 3.4 Beta
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: ui

build: 9583

This is a longtime bug with floating toolbars in OO that need fixing before 3.4
release. Currently when you enter a table in writer the table toolbar appears
on the screen. This behavior should be user configurable to prevent automatic
display of all floating toolbars. It is horribly distracting to need to get to
information that is covered up by floating toolbars.

Further, after closing the floating table toolbar if you move out of the table
and then back in, the toolbar pops back up. This should not happen if the
toolbar has been previously closed. If a floating toolbar is displayed and
closed by the user, then it should not reappear on reentry into whatever caused
it to appear (i.e. a table or whatever context caused the dialog to appear).

The logic for this should be simple:

(1) if floating toolbars are going to be displayed based on context, then a
configuration option must exist that allows the user to disable this behavior
globally. The pop-up toolbars are really annoying. The auto display of floating
toolbars should also be configurable on a per-toolbar basis. The user may want
the table toolbar to auto display, but not the drawing or fontwork toolbars.

(2) if the auto-display floating toolbar option is enabled by the user, then
dismissing a toolbar should prevent redisplay of the toolbar for all of the
same contexts within the document. Meaning if it is set to auto-display and the
user kills it, then oo should be smart enough to disable any further
auto-display of that toolbar for the remainder of that editing session.

3.4 beta looks pretty good. I'll keep filing them as I find them :)
