Description jjc 2005-09-16 08:49:51 UTC
I have CTL-enabled.  The text toolbar has left-to-right and right-to-left
buttons.  I try to remove them using the Visible Buttons, because I use only
Thai, but this has no effect.
Comment 1 Oliver Specht 2005-09-16 09:00:56 UTC
The automatic visibility of the LTR/RTL prevents you from getting rid of them
using the "Visible buttons" setting.

I don't see a simple way to fix it. The workaround is to remove the buttons from
the toolbar using Tools/Configure.
Comment 2 jjc 2005-09-16 10:15:44 UTC
I can use your workaround to remove them, but then I cannot get them back: even
after I reenable them in Tools/Configure, I cannot get the buttons back using
the Visible Buttons menu.
Comment 3 jjc 2005-09-17 03:51:06 UTC
This workaround doesn't really work.  I can disable the buttons once, but when I
exit and restart OpenOffice the buttons come back, and at that point, even using
Tools/Configure can't get rid of them.

cd->os: We discussed this problem by phone. This is clearly a user experience
problem which cannot be solved by us. As FT designed the current feature he has
to find a better way to resolve this issue.

cd->ft: Please take over and find a way which suits all users.

FT: Show L2R and R2L Buttons only when the selected locale for CTL is whether
Arabic, Hebrew or Urdu. Otherwise hide them.
