Specifications for OpenOffice.org 2.0
|Context Menu Concept||The context
for the menu items of context menus is defined by the position of the
mouse cursor, rather than the current selection. Therefore the a
context click causes the selection to jump to the cursor position.
Context menus now do also open on context mouse button down rather than just on context mouse button up. This is to conform to the GNOME platform.
Finally, if the context menu opens for the reason of spell checking it is now granted that the menu does not cover the word in question.
|Toolbar Concept||Toolbars in OpenOffice.org are completely renewed. They have further on a context sensitive behavior, but without the toolbar toggle known from OpenOffice.org 1.1 or earlier. New is also that each OpenOffice.org program module can have its own toolbar configuration. The OpenOffice.org 2.0 toolbars provide a lot of usability enhancements which allow an easier customization of the toolbars.||Christian Jansen||Final||2.03
This document gives precise guidelines to be followed for the creation of OpenOffice.org's wizards. The more wizards are to be developed the more important becomes the recognition and consistency of certain repeating elements throughout the wizards. Basically this specification brings together the Sun specification in JLF(Advanced Topics) Chapter 7 Wizards and the different way of Microsoft's wizards.
|Task Panel Specification||The Task Panel is a window which gives users access to commonly used commands. The Task Panel is organized into a number of tabs which are arranged from the top to the bottom. Each panel can also be sub divided in sub task sections. A panel can provide for example access to presentation AutoLayouts (changes the layout of the selected slide.). These can be applied from the presentation by using drag & drop.||Christian Jansen||Draft||2.0||11/14/2003|

|Native Widgets||To better integrate OpenOffice.org with the underlying desktop environment all widgets should have the same look as those used in native applications for that platform. This includes the proper reaction to changes of the desktop theme which should change the look immediately.||Stephan Schäfer||Draft||2.0||04/02/04|
