Description lcn 2004-05-06 01:19:57 UTC
Options/Language settings UI needs to be improved : - There shouldn't have hidden options in the treeview - When check Asian languages support, there is no immediate action How to reproduce : In English OOo, - When Options/Language settings/Languages/Asian languages support is unchecked, there are 2 options for Options/Language settings/ in the treeview. - When after checking Options/Language settings/Languages/Asian languages, there is no immediate action. - Click OK. - Now, Options/Language settings/Languages/Asian languages support is checked, there are 4 options for Options/Language settings/ in the treeview. Personnaly, I don't like invisible options which appear from nowhere. I prefer disabled option with grey color. When enabling an option, sub-options should appear nearby. But, maybe there is an other point of view.

Another hidden option : Text direction in Format/Page/Page when asian language option is enabled. This option doesn't appear when asian language option is disabled.

Confirmed in 1.9.88. I would like to see the options stay hidden as opposed to grayed out, but they should appear automatically when the box is checked and disappear like wise. @icn -- They are hidden to try to make the option menu less intimidating (I would assume.) Many people feel there are too many options.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
