New file from the command line
Submitted by Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak
I usually run gnumeric from the command line, and I would like to be able to use it also for creating new .gnumeric files (the same way as I can do for example "vim newfile.txt"). As of gnumeric-1.10.11-1.fc14.x86_64, the behaviour is as follows:
$ gnumeric newfile.gnumeric [ Big (1066x800 on my desktop) and ugly (mostly empty, big red warning sign) warning window informing in a single line that the file does not exist, with the "Close" button only. ] [ New spreadsheet is opened with name "Book1.gnumeric" (even though I pressed the "Close" button) ]
Expected behaviour can be the same as other tools (like vim(1)) have when non-existent file is passed from the command line:
$ gnumeric newfile.gnumeric [ small window informing (not warning - no red signs etc.) that the document "newfile.gnumeric" does not exist, possibly with buttons labeled "create" (default) and "quit". ] [ empty spreadsheet should be opened with the requested name "newfile.gnumeric" ]
Thanks for considering this enhancement.
