Re: [libreoffice-design] RE: Document Recovery Mockup

Hi Andrew,
I really like the mockup -- it is certainly an improvement over the current
document recovery.

However, my problem with Document recovery lies in the way it works.

Ideally, I should be able to recover my documents at any time, not just the
one time I launch LibO after it is closed.

On more than one occasion, I've force quit OOo when I saw a Document
recovery dialog pop up, because a) I needed to quickly write a few notes and
didn't have the time and motivation to deal with Document recovery, or b) as
I often work on a shared computer, the files in Document recovery are
sometimes not even mine.

I think it'd be more comfortable if the dialog provided a "Recover later"
option. It would also be great to be able to compare the recovered version
and the saved version right from the dialog.

When opening existing files that have not yet been recovered, the Recovery
dialog should automatically pop up and offer the recovered version, as well
as a comparison between the recovered version and the saved version.
