Description Telesto 2017-05-19 20:19:57 UTC
When adding a textbox the template styles in the styles and formatting sidebar will be empty. After exiting and re-entering the textbox all sorts of styles are listed (but non-working)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Open the styles and formatting toolbar (F11)
3. Add a textbox (Insert -> Text box) -> No template styles available
4. Type something into the text box and exit it
5. Re-enter the textbox -> Template styles are available (but not working)

Actual Results:  
No template styles available immediately after adding a textbox

Expected Results:
Template styles should be available (as in Impress) 

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Cannot reproduce this.

The styles are visible but no style is and also can't be applied.

The styles listbox/treeview control should be disabled just like the buttons above it, and the style preview checkbox and the filter drop down listbox below it should also be disabled.

Dear Telesto,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
