Convert Floating Windows to System Windows
Author: Frank Loehmann
Task ID: 96979
StarOffice does not use system controls, dialogs, etc. Due to this floating windows like the Stylist, Navigator and floating toolboxes (toolbars) can not be moved outside the application window of SO/OO today. (please see screen shot below) This was also true for dialogs and application menus in the past (So 5.2).
StarOffice / OO will use system windows also for floating windows.
This solution will also solve some accessibility requirements, because moving and resizing floating windows and toolbars via keyboard is then covered by the systems own mechanism.(Alt+Space shows up the windows menu)
Every application / document has it's own floating windows (content and position)
Only floating windows of the current SO/OO document (which owns focus or was the last SO/OO document, loosing focus to another application or window) are visible
Every new created document inherits the floating windows and positions (also docked status) given in the current document.
The floats positions of the last closed doc will be saved
Option to save floating window and their positions with the document?
