Description Heiko Tietze 2017-04-23 07:40:37 UTC
For example, the grouped sections variant of the Notebookbar contains of a Link button with some underlying options. But when a write-protected document is loaded, e.g. downloaded from the internet, this button with all children is not disabled properly. The function itself is not accessible meaning the dialog does not opens on click.
Comment 1 Heiko Tietze 2017-04-23 07:45:34 UTC
Confused myself with LibO fresh where this button was just a dummy. In master the menu is cleared and "<no selection is possible>" shown. The button itself is enabled (otherwise the menu may not be opened).

We can keep the current behavior. It's only a minor confusion that menu buttons are shown without content / when all content is disabled.
Alternatively, if no function is left the group itself could be disabled.

I can confirm this bug, but as Heiko wrote for me it's also a small visual issue.

Wow, this is incredibly unclear.
What is a "grouped sections variant"? I never seen a button labeled "Link".
A picture would be helpful.
