New toolbar concept and design i20055 Toolbars in are completely renewed. They have further on a context sensitive behavior, but without the toolbar toggle known from 1.1 or earlier.

New menu customization tab i20069 The usability of the Menu tab of the Tools/Customize dialog is being improved to make it easier for users to create customized menus and menu items to suit their needs. speclink framework
Basic IDE keyboard shortcuts i29867 feature-info:
In the Basic IDE the shortcut for the command 'BasicStop' was changed from Alt-F5 to Shift-F5. The old shortcut Shift-F5 which executed the commands 'BasicStop' and 'RunBasic' one after the other was removed. The complete list of shortcuts is shortcut command action --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- F5 RunBasic Run code starting from the first line, or from the current breakpoint, if the program stopped there before. Shift-F5 BasicStop Stop. F7 AddWatch Add watch for the variable at the cursor. F8 BasicStepInto Single step through each statement, starting at the first line or at that statement where the program execution stopped before. Shift-F8 BasicStepOver Single step as with F8, but a function call is considered to be only one statement.

Redesign of the Tools->Configure dialog Events tab i30032 The usability of the Events tab of the Tools/Customize (formerly Tools/Configure) dialog is being improved to make it easier for users to create event bindings and align this tab with usability changes in the other tabs. speclink framework
Installation of option-dependent configuration settings. i25937 This document describes how installation-dependent configuration data can be installed with native installers. The mechanism used previously had certain conceptual problems and can't be readily ported to non-native installers. The document also describes how installation-dependent configuration data is defined for the new schema. In the solution described, installation-dependent configuration is defined together with its globally available counterpart in module officecfg. During the build process this master data is split into globally available common data, locale-dependent data and installation-dependent data. During installation, installation-dependent data is first installed into a spool directory and then imported from that directory into the active configuration tree, by using a UNO importer service during post-installation. In typical native installers the importer service is excuted by helper CLI-program. speclink installation
Create named ranges by typing into the name box i20335 The Name Box – alas the Sheet Area Field – in Calc can be used to define new cell ranges by simply typing a name. The immediate display of a tool tip tells the user that she is about to create a new named cell range. speclink sc
Support for HYPERLINK() function i27972
speclink sc
Changed "AutoPilot Functions" to "Function Wizard" i29206 feature-info:
The name "AutoPilot Functions" has been changed to "Function Wizard". This affects the title of the Wizard dialog, and the quick help of the toolbox icon.
not set
No more .properties files containing localized descriptions of registry schema items i18588 feature-info:
The *.properties files containing localized descriptions and labels for configuration schema items are not installed (under $(install)/share/registry/res) any more. There were no clients of this data left. [Note: the internal 'ecomp' product is broken by this, but is being removed currently and should not be tested any more. Instead the schema item descriptions (only the default language - in all known cases english) are now left inside the installed schema files (under $(install)/share/registry/schema), where they can be found by interested users (developers or system administrators) much more easily.
not set
Context menu in read-only documents now has a "Copy" entry internal feature-info:
The context menu of read-only documents in Writer and Writer/Web now has a "Copy" entry to copy selected content to the clipboard
