pre-selection of table when pasting table-like data to Base i18907   feature-info:
With the integration of CWS dba24a (680m228 or m229, probably), when you paste table-like data (a Calc range, a Writer table, an HTML table, a database table, whatever) to OOo Base, while a table object is currently selected, then this table's name, along with the option "Append data", is pre-selected in the "Copy Table" wizard. Thanks go to Du Yunfen for providing the patch for this enhancement.

The relation design is now available for MySQL databases i68858   feature-info:
The relation design is now accessible for MySQL databases as well.
ocke.janssen@sun.com

The method getSelection return an Any which contains a Sequence of NamedValue. 1st NamedValue: Name = "Type" Value is an integer with values from com.sun.star.sdb.application.DatabaseObject which indicates which kind of object is currently selected. 2nd NamedValue: Name = "Selection" Value is a sequence of strings which are currently selected in the view.

User defined navigation order i68097 User Defined Navigation Order for Shapes The navigation order in Draw and Impress defines the order in which shapes are selected when the user presses the TAB key repeatedly. The navigation order, up to now, is defined by the so called z-order, the order in which shapes are painted. The initial z-order in turn, is defined by the order in which shapes are created. Andre Fischer, af speclink drawing
AutoFilter Behavior in Calc i27745 AutoFilter Behavior The AutoFilter function allows to filter data in a spreadsheet by one criteria per column. This feature allows to run a quick analysis of data. The current support of multi column filtering shows some ease of use issues, therefore the AutoFilter list will be overworked with this specification. Frank Loehmann (FL) speclink sc
Text to Columns in Calc i4040 Text to Columns Comma separated values (CSV) can already be imported from files and the clipboard., but CSV data inside cells could not be transformed into columns directly. This spec defines the new feature Text to Columns that uses the already existing Text import (CSV) dialog and transforms CSV data inside cells to columns. Frank Loehmann (FL) speclink sc
Insertion of Cells in a Spreadsheet via Drag & Drop i7180 Insertion of Cells in a Spreadsheet via Drag & Drop Often a cell or a plurality of cells has to be moved via drag & drop to a new column or row inside the same or new spreadsheet. The new target cells for the data moved is often not empty, so that an insertion would be helpful to accomplish the task without inserting new rows/columns or cells in advance. Frank Loehmann (FL) speclink sc
Caching strategy for VLOOKUP and MATCH queries. i81336   feature-info:
Implemented a caching strategy that for VLOOKUP and MATCH spreadsheet function queries caches result positions for identical queries in the same row with different offsets, which are often used to display several fields of a record looked up. Performance improvement is especially noticeable in non-range lookups of unsorted data (last parameter 0 in VLOOKUP or MATCH) where no binary search is possible.

stoc libraries merged i77885   feature-info:
Those various small UNO component libraries from stoc that are relevant at OOo startup (implreg.uno.so, nestedreg.uno.so, regtypeprov.uno.so, security.uno.so, servicemgr.uno.so, shlibloader.uno.so, simplereg.uno.so, typeconverter.uno.so, typemgr.uno.so, uriproc.uno.so) have been merged into two new larger bootstrap.uno.so (for those components that are used during binary UNO bootstrap and need UNO type information in a format independent of types.rdb) and stocservices.uno.so (for the rest). Client code should not be affected by this change.

Edit boxes (all relatives) now warn if field limitation has been reached i73360   feature-info:
If an edit box (that could be a text box as well as a combo box and all relatives) reaches the limit of characters (that could be limited at the control in the code or by the maximum (65535) count of characters possible in such controls) a message box occours: "The inserted text exceeded the maximum length of this text field. The text was truncated."

Mac OS X spell checker is being used instead of OOo i77592 Mac OS X SpellChecker Mac OS X has a built in spell checking facility for many languages. Using this facility benefits the user because they can maintain a single word list across all applications that support this service. Furthermore, the spelling of all words will be consistent across all applications. This project integrates the Mac OS X Spellcheck service into the OpenOffice.org user interface. Mike Sicotte (MS) speclink ui
Focus on number of copies field in print dialog i9521   feature-info:
In the OOo application (Word processor, Spreadhseet, Presentation, ...) press CTRL-P if a document is open [or File / Print] NEW: The focus is on the number of copies the user would like to print which saves 4 times [TAB] to get there.
