Description Ismail Donmez 2003-04-18 11:11:14 UTC
Version:            (using KDE Devel)
Compiler:          gcc 3.2.2 
OS:          Linux

Everytime I open kword it asks me to select a file to start it or creating a new document from a template but %90 of times I want to just fire up kword and start to write. So I shouldnt be need to see first dialog.

Most of software having these kind of dialogs just puts a checkbox on this dialog like "Dont show this dialog again." . So I think kword ( in general all koffice applications ) need a this kind of a checkbox to disable first file dialog.

koffice programs, and not only in the case of initially starting the program, 
but also when you select file -> new... in the program and when you select 
insert -> object frame -> any application.

so the problem is i couldn
