Comments on Action Items

  1. These items are waiting for the implementation of the interfaces to set bitmaps/image list for high contrast mode and the creation of high contrast ready bitmaps

  2. Regharding the selection upon opening a context menu, there are different conventions in different products. The common denominator is that when opening a context menu via mouse, on an object which does not belong to the current selection, the selection is changed to this object. Differences are whether or not the original selection is restored after the menu is closed.
    We think that as a general rule, we should change the OOo behaviour so that the selection follows the mouse click (which currently is not the case), but is not restored afterwards (due to the efforts this would imply especially for more complex scenes than a tree list box).
