Description Telesto 2017-04-27 21:30:50 UTC
Description:
The table toolbar can be accessed by creating a table (context dependent) and by enabling the toolbar in Menu -> View -> Table. I personally prefer a steady toolbar, instead of which switches on and off. However the explicitly enabled table toolbar will still automatically close after exiting a table.

There is no solution for this. I can create a new toolbar with the same table functionality which stay's behind, but I can't delete the table toolbar completely.

The frame toolbar behaves the same way

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a Writer document
2. Enable table toolbar: View -> Toolbar -> Table
3. Add a table (CTRL+F12)
4. Click below the table -> Toolbar disappears


Actual Results:  
The table toolbar is context depend even when it's explicitly enabled

Expected Results:
If the table toolbar is explicitly enabled, it should stay enabled


Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Hopefully bug 103240 will allow a means of fully turn it on my its state of on when in context.

@Cor, @Stuart, @Sophie: Do you know of anyway to stop a contextual toolbar from disappear, as i know you can permanently disable a contextual toolbar from appearing.

@Maxim, @Muhammet: Any idea how difficult this would be to fix, or is all that is needed is to change 'ContextSensitive' from true to false in the user profile?

AFAIK changing 'ContextSensitive' alone won't do this. The handling of contextual toolbars is hardcoded in the application code (with Impress/Draw having different code for that than Writer/Calc). What we need is to refactor that code so toolbar context will be set directly in *WindowState.xcu (using vcl::Context enum), similar to what we have for the sidebar.

But currently 'ContextSensitive' does only 2 things:

1. Ignore 'Visible' at application start (i.e. 'ContextSensitive' + 'Visible' means visible when the correct context active). But it have no effect on what will happen later while using the application.

2. Changes the state of View > Toolbars > Reset. If there is at least one 'ContextSensitive' toolbar with 'Visible'=false', that menu item will be enabled, and will allow setting it back to true.

I don't see any way of having the toolbar without the context, even if you dock it, it will disappear when leaving the context. Sophie
