Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2017-05-09 12:02:03 UTC
An UNO command is needed for the 'Hidden Text' checkbox found in Tools > Options > Writer > Formatting Aids. Hopefully these code pointers are of use.

http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sw/source/uibase/config/usrpref.cxx#101

http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sw/inc/viewopt.hxx#SetShowHiddenChar

A similar UNO command is already available for the 'Fields: Hidden Paragraph' checkbox (.uno:ShowHiddenParagraphs).

http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sw/sdi/swriter.sdi#5370

The new UNO command will be added to the View menu in a grouped section with Formatting Marks (.uno:ControlCodes) below 'Track Changes'.

Similar to 'Fields: Hidden Paragraph' (.uno:ShowHiddenParagraphs), hidden text should be made independent from 'Formatting Marks' (.uno:ControlCodes) so it can be shown/hidden irrespective of the state of 'Formatting Marks'.

'Hidden Text' is mentioned in Bug 107658 and help says: 
"Displays text that uses the character format "hidden", when View - Formatting Marks is enabled."
Is this bug about 'Fields: Hidden Text'?
