if using the notebook bar in Register or Grouped mode, there is no indication if the document is modified / to be saved (like the little star in the icon in "old" UI)
Comment 1 Helmut Leininger 2016-12-31 15:04:15 UTC
There is a little icon in the status bar at bottom, but less obvious than within the save icon

WFME, ok in 6.0 RC1
Comment 5 Helmut Leininger 2018-01-02 11:21:52 UTC
Problem still present with 6.0.0 RC1 if notebookbar is set to "Contextual groups".

Works ok with other notebookbar options.

Still present in LO

in other bar configurations, a dot is shown on the diskette icon when the document is modified. This is not the case with notebook bar in Register or Grouped mode
Comment 10 Justin L 2023-06-16 21:42:01 UTC
and what is "registered mode" or "Grouped mode"?
I looked at Groupbar - compact and it was fine.

Contextual single has no save button at all, so of course there is no indicator. I'm assuming this report is only discussing visible save buttons that aren't getting an updated indicator.
Comment 11 Helmut Leininger 2023-06-17 05:34:34 UTC
LO 7.5.4

When a diskette (save) icon is shown, it gets a red dot when the document is updated -> it works for me.

in contextual compact there is no save button - but there is a diskette icon at the left in the status bar that turns into red if the document is updated -> works for me
