Feature title TaskId Spec. abstract Spec. link Component
Form design opens with changed grid size and vertical ruler i37327 feature-info:
When opening a new form, the vertical ruler is now visible and the grid size is set to 5 to allow a better adjustment of a control.
not set
Data Source Browser in embedded forms i37467 feature-info:
The data source browser in a embedded form document (F4) displays exactly the database which the form belongs to, and not the registered databases anymore.
not set
Installation of configuration data does not use configimport any more i38928 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 installed into a special configuration tree, that supports multiple files per component. Thus such data is held physically separated and merged together only at runtime. speclink installation
