Hi Ricardo, all!

Hey, you seem to evolve to Mr. Navigator ... which is a great thing!

There is a potential usability problem with the navigator on LibO on
its current form. Suppose you have four levels of headings and you are
now on a level, say, three (a sub-subsection). Now, you want to go for
a moment to the top level for this part (the Chapter) and double click
on the corresponding entry on the navigator. You will be "teleported"
there... but the tree view for that entry will collapse, hiding the


The navigation toolbar I can see on the 3.4 development versions will
help you to return to the starting point, but I think that the tree
view should not collapse on that circumstance. I know that double
clicking is a standard way to "close" something, but IMO on this
common user case is counter productive.

I share your thoughts ... that is counter-productive, since usual tree
views react on the very first click. In our case, we need the "selection
only" as well. So, from my point-of-view:
      * Click (on the Navigator text entry) --> Select
      * Double-Click (on the Navigator text entry) --> Jump

Ricardo, may I ask you to do me a favor? Could you please summarize the
things we've discussed so far - being usability issues - as an Easy Hack
(show headings drop-down, double-click behavior)? I currently really
lack the time to do so :-( The current Easy Hacks page looks like this:

It would be great if developers could pick this ...
