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.

Heiko, has there been any progress with the 2015 proposal over the past few years? Is this prioritized for future work somehow? ... it seems mine is the 5th dupe.

Until now we have no volunteer being interested in this task. Neither for the depending bug 49437. Let's raise the importance due to number of duplicates.
