Description Heiko Tietze 2017-02-11 10:33:14 UTC
In bug 101648 the functions New and Modify have been disabled (actually both are hidden) but ultimately we need a dialog. The design team made a proposal which is published az https://design.blog.documentfoundation.org/2015/12/13/style-your-tables/
Comment 1 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2017-02-11 14:31:50 UTC
Confirming of course.

Best regards. JBF
Comment 2 Heiko Tietze 2017-03-04 21:00:13 UTC
As a workaround you can use the right-most tool button in the styles deck to either modify the selected table style or to create a new. However, those changes are stored only in the current document.
Comment 3 Thomas Lendo 2017-03-12 21:52:41 UTC
IMHO this bug should have a higher importance because table styles without the possibility to create or modify styles are useless in a large part. Also the table style feature was prominently promoted in the release notes.

Yousuf: noticing https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=0ba318b895c164750dc3c7bac6948b04b606f2b8, thought you might be interested in this one.

Moreover, I agree with Thomas, we should increase the importance here for the reasons he quoted.

Julien: If only i was that good at coding, but i'm definitely not. :D

Creating and updating table styles is currently possible through the entries in the sidebar, so the part that is missing is the modification of a table style in a dialog, which will likely await a GSoC student to take up using the proposal in comment 0.

No pb, I'm not expert too :-)

Ouch! It may take some time since this bugtracker is only considered as an enhancement/medium.
