I believe there are two distinct bugs the original author intended to convey.  

I believe the two bugs are:
(1)A user is unable to display specific text that has previously been marked as hidden.

(2)A user is unable to see areas of hidden text in a document once something has been hidden.

In order to keep things clean and orderly, I have created a separate bug to address (#2) noted above (Bug 124321).  

I am updating this Bug Report to clarify my understanding of what the problem is and the results of my testing on the most recent version of Apache OO v4.0.1.

Problem:  My understanding of the original problem is that a user is unable to display or make visible specific text that has been previously marked as hidden.

Expected Results:  A user should have the ability to hide and/or unhide text.

Steps to Recreate the Problem:
(1)Preconditions are:
•	OpenOffice Writer is Open
•	Navigator is displayed
•	Document with Text is displayed and ready to use
(2)Select text
(3)Select <Insert> from ToolBar
(4)Select <Section>from Drop Down Menu
(5)<Insert Section> dialogue box appears
(6)Select <Hide> Checkbox from dialogue box
(7)Click <Insert> Button from dialogue box
(8)Selected Text marked hidden is no longer visible on document.
(9)Navigator displays a subsection labeled “Section1” under <Sections> indicating something was hidden.
(10)There is no way for a user to unhide the selected text

Impacts:  I was not able to find any functional impact to other areas of the application.  I do believe this bug would impact processes and legal documents that requires parties to review and understand everything listed on the documents.  

Additional Notes:
Tested with Apache OO v4.0.1, Windows 7 pc

Attachments:  Attached step by step instructions with screen shots to illustrate the problem.

I am using AOO 4.0.1 on a Windows 7 machine

I am able to reproduce this problem using the steps Amalia provided.

However, my understanding of jwalter's issue is somewhat different. I believe jwalter is requesting the ability to show or hide text from the context menu. 

To access the context menu, right click the grayed out Hidden Text in the Navigator window. Current context menu items include outline level; drag mode; display; edit; and rename.

See attached screenshot.
