Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] file name suggestion

in a message on facebook, somebody suggested that writer when first saving a document should copy 
a feature of m$ word:  compose automatically the document name  using the first vtwo words of the 
document itself, instead of naming it something like 'document without name'.  it would be 
comfortable if you have to save multiple documents in one directory....
     Questions: How do you determine what a document's content is by looking at the first two 
words? Why would people save a file without giving it a name that makes sense to the author? What 
would happen if more than one text document has the same beginning two words? No, I think the best 
thing is to name each file when it is first opened by Writer.


no...  in case a documents starts like  'the teacher says...'  or  'dear john', when you save it 
for the first time you find the words 'the teacher' or 'dear john'  (or 'the teacher 2' or 'dear 
john 2' in case the file name would be already in use) instead of  'document without name'.  then:  
if you like it or are in a hurry, you simply click 'save' without changing the file name, otherwise 
you change the file name and then click 'save'.  I sometimes think of it when I write quick notes 
or letters...  nobody would make file names obligatory, obvious.
