Description Thomas Lendo 2017-04-12 13:01:55 UTC
"Edit Style...", "Update Style..." and "New Style..." in menus, toolbars, sidebars, etc. should be renamend to "Edit Paragraph Style...", "Update Paragraph Style..." and "New Paragraph Style..." because they only apply to paragraphs and not to character or other styles although, for example, a frame and not a frame content is selected.

The wording "style" simplifies the styles concept of LibO in a way that the user will be confused. Style is not only paragraph style.

Steps to reproduce:
See tooltips in Formatting toolbars or tooltips in the properties sidebar or the entry namings in the Styles menus.

The problem is that these commands were previously only in the sidebar, and i added them to the menubar and toolbar, so they only took into account which tab of the styles and formatting deck of the sidebar was active, and that is what needs to be corrected. They need to work correctly based on where they are executed from based on context.

@Maxim: Would it be easy to add an argument to these commands so that they work with other style families, as the logic is already there for it based on which tab of the styles & formatting deck you are on.
