Description Tamás Zolnai 2017-08-12 17:02:48 UTC
The sidebars' character spacing button opens a popup in which you can move between the simple types (Very Tight, Tight, Normal, Loose) by arrow keys, but "Very Loose" is not part of this path and so you can't step on it by the arrow keys.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Impress
2. Add some text to title shape and select it
3. Open sidebar's character spacing popup ("Very Tight" is selected)
4. Move the selection by arrow keys

Actual Results:  
The last item called "Very Loose" can't be stepped on.

Expected Results:
The last item also should be accessible by arrow keys.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Let's turn this into a easy hack. The code is here:
Needs only a relayouting of the buttons to be part of the same container unit.
