Description Kruno 2017-04-06 15:52:06 UTC
Not toggling save button to indicate unsaved changes if character style upon opening changed from custom one to Default Style

1. open existing document
2. use character style other but Default Style
3. Save and exit
4. reopen the document and apply Default Style to previously formated text

Save button doesn't toggle to indicate document change. It works as expected if any other character style applied following this instructions.

Still present in 5.4.6.

   1. open new document
   2. make custom character style
   3. enter some text and apply custom character style to it
   4. save and exit
   5. open that document and apply default character style


  No indication of document being modified in save icon in top left of the screen.


  Indication of document being modified as character style changed.


  Indication for document being changed is there for every other character style changed on open except for default style.

Dear Kruno,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
