For 2.6 I would appreciate to have the possibility to declare a form as "autoopen" when opening a project.


Good idea, --> bugs.kde.org ;)

In the report edit mode, I would like the ability to move(position) multiple fields together using the precise X or Y values of the "Properties" tab. The same request for the form edit mode where it is located in the "Properties/Name/Geometry/X or Y". Currently, I have to move each field or label one by one by hand. The form edit mode allows the positioning of multiple fields (by eye) using the mouse but not the precise positioning in the "Properties" tab. One can do so if selecting only one field but not when selecting multiple fields.
I also agree that an "auto open" form would be nice, especially when the Project Navigator is crowded with queries, forms, reports, etc.

More paper sizes, including enveloppe sizes, including a custom one.

and
The ability to prepare reports for printing labels (2 or 3 per row).

This last is available in Libreoffice accesss, says google
It was not in late Knoda, but I scripted the creation and population of an adhoc table whose each row include the datas for 2 or 3 rows of the main table.

Be able to copy forms and reports within a data base. This would allow to create easily slightly different widgets.

That's important feature indeed. There are several solutions:
- "Duplicate" action in the Navigator
- Copy/Cut/Paste actions in the Navigator
- "Save as" action in Design mode of any db object (Table, Form, etc.)

I am considering the third option for 2.6 and the second for more distant future.

Current workaround working only for queries and scripts is: copy definition text (SQL or script code, respectively) and paste it as a definition of a newly created object.

Thanks for 2.7
Here are some wishes

These comments are made while using a kexi based address-book.

Most of them are related to how to recover the data towards using them out of Kexi, usually within a word processor

Is there any word processor (Libreoffice, Calligra words) able to handle fields fed from a Kexi query ?

Once an occurence is selected in a query, there is no easy way to display a related form.
Either you have to re-design the query, copypasting the occurence ID to the right case in the design windows, saving and then displaying the form. Either copypaste the rownumber from the query to the form.

Once the form shows the wanted datas you have to copy them one at a time to the word processor you are working in. Since simultaneous selection of several fields in the form is possible it would be useful to copy the whole selection.

If you have choosen to re-design the query you can export (to file or to copyboard) all the fields, and once pasted you shall erase the information you don't need. Some way to select which fields to export would be useful.

Thanks for the feedback, Robert. I'll carefully note down the ideas.
