Bug ID: 103326
           Summary: Viewing: Enhancement: Unable to set web view as
                    default for opening all documents.
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: release
          Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)
                OS: Linux (All)
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: Writer

Currently when opening a document it defaults to page view. I would like to be
able to set the default view for opening all Writer documents to web view.

I would like this default to be overridden if the file being opened contains
view information.

The currently recommended work around is to write a macro that sets current
view to web view and is run by the events 'open document' and 'new document'.
This solution is not optimal, and for those who don't want JRE, not available. 

Steps to Reproduce:
N/A: Feature request.
1. Open document or create new document
2. Document is in Print view when Web view is preferred.
3. Go to 'View' and click radio button 'Web'

Actual Results:  
N/A: Feature request.

Expected Results:
1. Open Writer
2. Go Tools --> Options --> LibreOffice Writer --> View
3. In this window under the View title a new options exists as Default Layout
4. New option Default Layout has two radio buttons, (1) Page View, (2) Web View
5. The chosen option causes writer to behave in the same manner as if, after
opening or creating a document, the user had selected that view.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Caution: writing code that emulates a radio button click of Web View will cause
a problem because the current implementation toggles instead of selects the
radio buttons as per bug:
