2 little bugs:
1- opening the code of a macro (using neooffice basic), the basic window shows a white page, if the macro isn't in the beginning of the basic window. Scrolling the window, the text appear.
2- changing screen resolution the neooffice windows lost toolbars and I need to restart the application.

1 question: is this the best place to write bugs? i read about bugzilla, but never used it. is there a pubblic list of bugs? I do not want to repeat knows bugs.

thank you

This sounds very similar to bug #202 http://bugzilla.neooffice.org/bug.php?op=show&bugid=202&pos=6. To summarize that bug, probably you have many blank lines at the beginning of your macro. Try deleting those blank lines to see if that is what is pushing the macro to the next page.

Are you sure that they are lost or are they behind one of your Neo/J document windows? If you "click and hold" the Neo/J icon in the Mac OS X dock, a list of all Neo/J windows (including the floating windows) should appear.

The best place to write bugs is in Bugzilla. Ed and I fix bugs in Bugzilla first so it is the better place to put bugs. To search for bugs, click on the "Query Bugs" link at the top of the page. Then, in the query bugs page, click on the "advanced query page" link.

No, I'll try to explain better the bug. When I make a macro, the macro is stolen in a large file that contain all the macro I do. If I have to modify a macro, I can choose the macro to modify in macro window (TOOLS/MACRO/MACRO), and neooffice open the big file with all the macro and 'jump' to the right macro.
It is not a 'write' window, is a special window called BASIC. There is no 'page' in that window, it is like a programmer text editor.
Now, if I choose to modify the first macro, or 2° or 3° macro, all is working fine, but is I choose to change a macro in the end of the file, neooffice opens the BASIC window , shows me the beginning of the macro fine, jumps to the right macro point, but the macro showed in the window is invisible (white characters and white background).
When I scroll the window I see the remaining macro.
If I scroll back, the macro became visibile.

I'm not talking about the floating toolbar windows, but the open/save/ect icons over the working window. I see now it is like the working window is moved over the icons, and the grey bar in the top of the window became 'dirty'. Resizeing it often make all right again.

Oh, fine, I never seen that page. In future I'll put the bug in the right place. Thank you again for your work.

Can you please file a bug in Bugzilla and attach a sample macro that I can use to reproduce this problem?

Also, please file a bug for this problem and attach a screen snapshoot and the old and new screen resolutions so that I can try to reproduce this problem.

How can I attach files in bugzilla? I tried to fill the form but did not understand how to append files.

Sorry, thank you.

Go to the bug page. Below the update form, just above the comments that get added to the bug list is the attachment section. On the far right is a link called 'Create Attachment'. In all fairness, it is placed in a pretty obscure way.

The link opens a small window which ask for a file and a description.

Note that you have to be logged in to attach an attachment!
