That was quite usefull, it was a desktop environment/OS function rather than being a part of Star Office I used at that time. If it is in the recent Lotus code (to open the work folder) may be it will be integrated into Open Office, but for Libreoffice it would be a feature request.On 05/28/2015 01:12 PM, Andreas Säger wrote:Am 28.05.2015 um 18:57 schrieb James Knott:On 05/28/2015 12:38 PM, James Knott wrote:On 05/28/2015 12:21 PM, Andreas Säger wrote:I don't understand why any application should do this. Put your files into your assumed auto-start folder. I would use links instead of the real files. Open that folder, hit Ctrl+A and Enter to open all the files with the default application.That was possible in OS/2, but I haven't seen it anywhere else. With OS/2, you could create a "Work Area" folder and whenever that folder was opened, whatever was in it would also open.Forgot to mention, closing the folder also closed the open documents. So, you could create a work area folder for a project, place all the files for that project in the folder and then open or close them all at once. You could also create shadows for those documents in the work area folder, but leave the originals elsewhere. A shadow is another instance of the exact same file, so changes in a shadow automagically appear in the original.With any popular Linux desktop and (Windows too) Ctrl+A selects all file icons in a folder window. And the Enter key does the same as the double-click. It triggers the standard action which should be "open" for all document files. I would not be surprised if something similar works with OSX as well.With those OS/2 work area folders, you don't have to select anything, beyond opening the folder. When it opens, all the documents that had been open previously would open again, taking you back to exactly where you were when you closed it previously. It even survives reboots, which virtual desktops don't.
