Description dgrant 2002-04-19 09:56:37 UTC
I would really like to see a hide feature implemented into
similar to MS Office's implementation.  I like to define styles which are
hidden, however OOo currently does not allow one to make an entire style
"hidden"  The fields based method is extremely clumsy for new users to use.

Is is possible to do a workaround so that a "hidden" option is available in the
Font style dialog, and it actually still uses the fields approach underneath?

What do you dislike about the "hidden text" features that has?

I'm sorry to ask you this way, but this issue looks a lot like "Before
checking out what can do, let's make it a Word clone so that no
one has to re-learn a single thing"

I run into a lot of these, so please comment.

I've marked your comment to this issue as "To Do" in my Mozilla Mail
inbox.  Meaning that, as soon as I get a chance I'm going to
extensively try out OO.o's hiding text feature.  But I think if I
remember correctly the problem was that I couldn't turn an entire
style on and off.

In word, it is a character attribute.
SBA->CJ: We should consider to implement this as a character or
paragraph style attribute. Or both.
