Description Mohith Manoj 2017-04-12 04:42:34 UTC
* Situation
A document with regular text, hidden paragraphs and TOC is about to be exported to PDF / printed (TOC.odt)

* Condition 1
Hidden paragraphs are retained hidden ('View > Hidden Paragraphs' unchecked), TOC is updated and printed / exported to PDF.

* Expectation 1
Print / PDF created with hidden paragraphs excluded and TOC referring to page numbers as seen in the writer document.

* Result 1
Print / PDF created with TOC referring to correct page numbers (TOC - HP Hidden.pdf).

* Condition 2
Hidden paragraphs are visible ('View > Hidden Paragraphs' checked), TOC is updated  (because it does not updated automatically on print / export, Bug 44448) and printed / exported to PDF.

* Expectation 2
Print / PDF created with hidden paragraphs excluded and TOC referring to page numbers after excluding the hidden paragraphs.

* Result 2
Print / PDF created with hidden paragraphs hidden but TOC referring to page numbers before excluding the hidden paragraphs (TOC - HP Visible.pdf).

TOC should be referring to page 1 when printing the document to PDF and hidden Paragraphs is enabled.

If I understand well, Condition 1 is OK and Condition 2 NOK.
I guess Condition 2 meant this:
* Expectation 2
Print / PDF created with hidden paragraphs INcluded and TOC referring to page numbers after INcluding the hidden paragraphs.
* Result 2
Print / PDF created withOUT hidden paragraphs but TOC referring to page numbers before INcluding the hidden paragraphs (TOC - HP Visible.pdf).

Reporter already noted Bug 44448 as a possible ToC solution. Other solution would be to check ToC presence after turning on/off hidden text. 
But bug is not about "ToC update", rather about exporting hidden paragraphs.

There's Bug 99995 for hidden text and this one looks similar. But I keep it separate for hidden paragraphs in PDF. Print works. I'll change the title. 

Let me add a workaround to PDF export that misses hidden text: print with "Hidden text" in Print dialog. 
Note: while in Tools -> Options -> LO Writer Hidden characters, hidden text and hidden paragraphs are different, File-Print-LO Writer's Hidden text seems to include it all.
