Resizeable Legend i28670 Specification Chart Legend The legend within charts can be resized now. Ingrid Halama speclink chart
Calc: Changed "DataPilot" to "Pivot Table" i116540   In the Calc GUI, the term "DataPilot" has been replaced with the term "Pivot Table". daniel.rentz@sun.com   sc
CSV export option "Quote all text cells" i116636   Previously, in Calc CSV export, all content from text cells was quoted with the selected text delimiter. Now this is optional and happens only if the new check box "Quote all text cells" is selected. By default, the text delimiter is added only if the cell content contains the field delimiter, text delimiter or multiple lines. When a CSV file is loaded and saved again without editing the filter settings, the import option "Quoted field as text" is used for the "Quote all text cells" option. The default for "Quoted field as text" is now "off" (but if it's changed in the import dialog, that is still saved as new default in the configuration). niklas.nebel@oracle.com   sc
CSV export option "Quote all text cells" i116688   Previously, in Calc CSV export, all content from text cells was quoted with the selected text delimiter.

Calc: Unlimited number of fields in Pivot Table layout dialog i5759   In the Pivot Table layout dialog, it is now possible to add more than 8 fields to the "Row Fields", "Column Fields", and "Data Fields" areas, and more than 10 fields to the "Page Fields" area. daniel.rentz@sun.com   sc
Feature title TaskId Spec. title Description Dev. owner Spec. link Component
Date Axis i25706 Axis Scale Date axis are available now for category charts. Ingrid.Halama@oracle.com speclink chart
Scan rows for correct type infortion for Text databases i115655   The MaxRowScan setting allows to define how many rows should be scanned to find the correct type of a column. In the past only the first row was scanned. ocke.janssen@oracle.com   dba
Math: new option to save only used symbols for each formula i114767   It's not really a feature but an enhancement: In order to save on document file size (namely in Writer documents with many formulas) there is now a new option to save only those symbols which each that are used in that very formula. By default that option will be active. Geek info: However there is a small drawback, so far, if you work with different office installations, documents with formulas could be used to implicitly import ALL user-defined symbols in Math from one office installation to the next, even if none of them got used in a formula. Since now only the actually used symbols get saved only those can be implicitly imported into a different office installation. To get the old behavior simply turn off this new option. Regards, Thomas thomas.lange@sun.com   formula editor

Feature title TaskId Spec. title Description Dev. owner Spec. link Component
Automatic baseline for Math objects i972   With CWS tlmath01 there is a new check-box named 'Math baseline alignment' available in the 'Formatting Aids' tab of the Writer and WriterWeb option pages. When this option gets checked then *ALL* Math OLE objects already existing in the Writer document that are anchored 'as character' (and only those with this anchor type!) will be automatically aligned to match the baseline of the formula with the one of the surrounding text. Also new Math objects inserted later on will be automatically aligned as well. As long as this option is active manually movement of Math objects that are anchored 'as character' is not possible, and thus vertical alignment in the 'Object' context dialog is now disabled as well. For new documents this option is set by default. When loading old documents it is not set. In any case, once a document gets saved again the current value of this option will be saved along with the document. This automatic baseline alignment was implemented by Michal Spisiak as part of this years Google Summer of Code, the mentor for this was Eric Bachard. Thanks to both of them! thomas.lange@sun.com   formula editor
password entry in PDF export dialog changed i114278 PDF Export Dialog During PDF export one can enter two passwords ("open" and "permission" password). These can now be entered in one pass instead of two separate dialogs. Matthias Müller-Prove /MMP speclink framework

list box controls: "Bound field" is allowed to be 0, too i114540   The "Bound field" property of a list box control, specifying which column of the list boxes result set should be used for data exchange, can have the value "0" now. frank.schoenheit@sun.com   dba
Base: object trees: selecting entries by typing their name i31275   The tree lists in Base's main application window, now support selecting entries by typing their name. frank.schoenheit@sun.com   dba
