[Issue data has been moved from issue #85870 to cover the more general aspects of the visibility of the Notes Side Pane.] The following problem has been found in the build â€œedgy-jdk-2474-notes2â€. Current behavior: If there are no Notes in the document, then changing the setting â€œView â€“ Notesâ€ will not show the Note Side Pane nor any Notes. This does not correspond to a fundamental law of interaction design: providing feedback on actions. So this may lead to usability issues with that functionality. Proposed behavior (Please note that this issue does NOT fully describe the desired behavior. It is intended to give you some ideas how this could be implemented. Please refer to the specifications in the Notes2 wiki for more information or contact me directly.): If a document is opened which contains Notes, then both Notes Side Pane and Notes are shown (Notes â€“ View is activated) If a document is opened which does not contain Note(s), then the Notes Side Pane is not shown (Notes â€“ View is deactivated) If no Note(s) are contained in the document, the Notes Side Pane is not shown and the user activates Notes â€“ View, then the Notes Side Pane will be shown. If a Note is inserted and the Note Side Pane is not shown, then both Note Windows and Note Side Pane will be shown (Notes â€“ View is activated). If the Note Side Pane is shown and all Notes are deleted (deleted: no Note present in the document), then the Note Side Pane will stay open. (Notes â€“ View will remain active) (Currently, the Note Side Pane is closed automatically if no Note is present in the document.) The proposed behavior tries to first address the needs of the user (e.g. when opening the document) and will then try not to be too 'smart'. Please note: It may be very useful, if the visibility of the Notes and the Note Side Pane could be controlled in a more direct manner. This may include a control element in the horizontal ruler bar (please refer to the specification in the Notes2 wiki), an entry for the Note Side Pane context menu or a context menu entry for the Writer background â€œWieseâ€. Please contact me when you start to work on that proposals.
