Description Thomas Lendo 2017-04-27 12:16:45 UTC
The pre-installed Style "Text Body" can't be hidden in Writer.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a new Writer document.
2. Go to Styles and Formatting in the Sidebar.
3. Select all paragraph styles (click on a style and type ctrl + a -- or click on the first style and scroll to the last one and type shift and click on last style).
4. Click "Hide" in the context menu.

Actual result:
All styles but "Default Style" and "Text Body" are hidden now.

Expected result:
All styles but "Default Style" should be hidden.

What's the particular importance on "Text Body" that it can't be hidden now?

Was not able to select all, but confirm that Text Body cannot be hidden.

Weird thing is that after you hide it, the context menu then display 'show' and it will be listed under 'Hidden Styles'. Hiding styles was implemented in 4.0.

@Thomas, Why did you add the keyword 'bibisectRequest' ?

When the hiding feature was implemented in version 4 then it would be interesting who and which patch is responsible for that.
