"Default Filter" renamed to "Standard Filter" i39874 feature-info:
Upon request of the documentation team, the "Default Filter" feature in the data source browser has been renamed to "Standard Filter". That is, the tooltip of the respective icon changed, and the title of the dialog opened upon clicking this toolbar icon changed, too. With this, the naming now is consistent with the very similar feature in Calc. This change affects en-US only, no other locales.

Stylist is now hidden by default i36746 The initial user interface shown after the first startup-up shall be as uncluttered as possible. This document describes which tool windows shall be visible after first start-up. speclink framework

Entries in Calc->Format->PrintRanges menu changed i38052 The Format menu in OOo2.0 Calc is no longer context sensitive, i.e. the set of menu commands is fixed for all objects to be edited. The structure and terminology is consistent with the Writer module and matches competitive applications. speclink sc
