Description mrodmac 2010-01-27 22:03:22 UTC
Tools -> Options -> View:
If I uncheck "use system font for user interface", then choose "Hide" icons in
menus, the icons are hidden only until the next time OOo opens. Looking back in
Tools -> Options -> View, the preference setting has not changed, but the icons
are present.

Checking "use system font for user interface" will allow me to permanently hide
the icons.

Checked on Ubuntu 9.10 - OOO320_rc4 & DEV300_m70
(behavior is consistent in both builds)

changing the summary

Configure OO.o to display icons in menus. (sett to SHOW explicitly)
Open the options dialog and change the current setting for "Use system fonts"
and select the opposite setting from what it is currently.
Close the dialog - the menu icons have disappeared - which I believe is this
change to automatic behavior. See:

*I have not checked this under Windows yet - just do the opposite, start with
Icons hidden in menus, if this happens there then a change to system font should
make them come back.

Also - the display in the options dialog does change, so after the steps to
reporduce in the first paragraph - the icons will not be displayed, but the drop
down control in the options dialog will show the setting as still being SHOW.

Two things to add:

1) It is not just the system font setting - changing the icon set will also
trigger this.

2) @mrodmac After playing with a bit more I realize that the issue, as you
raised it, is indeed confirmed and different from what I changed the summary to
- sorry

@tm - I could turn this into two issues, per issue policy... :>0 or not but yes,
if the system font setting is FALSE then closing and opening the document also
triggers this.

On a side note, after some fedora updates (X server, kernel, nvidia) borked
fluxbox over the weekend, this is NOT an issue for me in gnome. Icons remain
hidden. Not sure if that makes a difference or not.
