I'm working with a large, multi-sheet spreadsheet from which I need to generate numerous .csv files for use with another application, and when I save that way, the document is converted to .csv and the .ods file is closed (well, the .ods is no longer open...). But...while the .csv file is still open, it has multiple sheets in which I can work. If I work in more than one sheet and then save and close (without choosing to "Save As"), I lose all info except the current sheet. This has happened to me on more than one occasion. I know I can "Save As" again to .ods format, but why would it let me work in a .csv file as if it were a multi-sheet .ods file? I know this is how Excel works too, but I think it's wrong.

What I'd like to see happen is to have the .ods file remain open and a SINGLE SHEET .csv file (what I just saved) open as well. That way I would have both files in which to work, I couldn't make a mistake with edits to the file AND I'd save many minutes throughout the day not having to re-open .ods files. I easily waste 1/2 hour to an hour a day working on this file because of this behavior.

I wonder if there is a setting that controls what happens when I use "Save As" - anyone know of this?

At some point I may post a feature request, but wonder if others would like to see such behavior or know why it wouldn't work.
