Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2017-04-06 16:41:22 UTC
When using style applying UNO commands like .uno:StyleApply?Style:string=Standard&FamilyName:string=ParagraphStyles in the toolbar and menu bar, they dont provide feedback behaviour that it is applied, and this would be useful to have in the form of a toggle in button in the toolbar and a checkmarked entry in the menu bar.

@Maxim: Any thoughts if this is possible, or should we care a new UNO command for such a feature?

Hi Jay,

Isn't the visible change in the doc, as with using the list Apply Style, enough?
IOW, what exactly do you mean?

Go to the Style menu and click any of the styles, then open up the menu again, can you see which style has been applied?

No need to reset enhancements to UNCONFIRMED. :D

Maxim, you're great!

Tested with Writer, Calc and Draw.
In Impress I couldn't test it successfully because I don't understand its style system.

Thanks Maxim. It looks great. Any way to disable the feature for particular entries as Insert > Horizontal Line shouldnt look like a checkbox.
