Announce "Last-Doc-Close-Prob"-Proposal


1.1 Modify color configuration for non document area

When setting the window background color to gray 50%, the cursor is not visible out of the document area in Impress/Draw. In Writer this problem does not occur because one can't edit out of this area and therefor the cursor gets another form and is visible. In Impress/Draw the cursor is painted with XOR, which obviously isn't very clever for a 50% gray... To avoid this, the color for the entire area must not be near 50% gray. E.g. avoiding a range of 40...60% will ensure at least a bit contrast between cursor and background.

1.2 Announce "Last-Doc-Close-Prob"-Proposal

MMP will post a proposal to solve the problem for what to do when closing the last document window. We hope that the community will add comments and/or give additional ideas.
