Description Unknown 2002-02-19 18:44:23 UTC
Heading 1 is linked with Heading.
Heading is set to Lucidux Sans.  
If I set Heading to Times, 
then Heading 1, also changes.
This is as it should be.

However, if I set Heading 1 to times, I 
can find no way to
say, reset it 'follow the linked style'.

I thought that either reset
standard should do this, but on this particular build/platform
it seems to have no 

Desired behaviour:
For each selector in the style editor I would like:
indicator of what the linked style is:
An option to inherit.

The indicator could vary: On 
list items such as font family, weight and
style, the link style could show up as white on red 
instead of white on 
blue.  Where the local style inherits, it would be shown as white on 
(combination of blue and red)  Ok, angry fruit salad.

The linked style would be shown 
in oblique, while the set style would be 
on dark blue.  Where local style inherits, it would be in 
oblique bold on
dark blue.

On things that affect the ruler, show two sets of tokens on the 
ruler line,
one in two different colors, or one set above the ruler, one set below.
This would 
include margins, firstline indent, tabs.

For checkbox items, it would show a second set of 
checkboxes that were unchangeable, but one checkbox would be "inherit" meaning that feature 
set to inherit from linked style.

is also the case in spreadsheet-component.
Comment 6 gercokees 2007-05-24 15:40:46 UTC
I mean: the described behaviour is the same for the spreadsheetcomponent. The
desired behaviour is the same as described above.

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