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.
