hi, thanks for your work, thanks for LibO!

a suggestion: PROJECTS… libre-Porject

similarly to programmers' text editor, BlueFish, Geany, Ultraedit, it'd be GREAT to have… PROJECTS

  • it could function very simply…

  • it could be available from tools…

  • it could be a popup window OR a part of NAVIGATOR…

  • 'the' PROJECTs LIST Page (the list of projects) could have:

    PROJECT name | number of windows | 'last opened' | 'created'

  • 'a' FILE LIST Page (= list of files / project) could have:

    FILE name | 'last opened' | 'created'

  • the project file (holding the Project List) could be automatically saved on exit, and in every now and then :)

thank you again for your work!

PS: a suggestion to all of us :) let's call it, refer to it as Libre-Project... even at this stage of asking for it :)

why?

"Projects" as a functionality -- an "organizer" of files, documents that you're working on -- is NOT a Microsoft invention at all...

I saw several suggestions, requests about a PROJECT function, but I guess it is more difficult for the developers to deal with them if what they (we) request is what Microsoft made. For example, when a new Microsoft office comes out and the Project (which they call MS-project) gets updated... what happens next? The free world (of LibO) gets panicked? Demanding right away the updates? It should not be like that.. :)

Enhancement requests are the kind of thing that you oddly have to suggest at the bug tracker, as an enhancement. At this board users help other users solve problems with LibO.
