Description Ulrich Gemkow 2017-10-21 14:50:54 UTC
When deleting a self defined table style in the AutoFormat Dialog box the style is not deleted from the table style sidebar.

Steps to reproduce:

- Create a new writer document

- Insert a table and (while the cursor is in the table) select Table->AutoFormat Styles.

- Give the new table a style name by using "Add" and enter a name of the style, press Ok to close the dialog

- Delete the new create table style in the Dialog Table-AutoFormat Styles.

Expected result:

The deleted table style should disappear from the table style sidebar

Current result:

The deleted table style still appears in the table style sidebar


- _Adding_ a style is reflected in the side bar as expected

- This bug is also present in git master from a few days ago

- I have read bug 109083 but this one is appearenty a missing call update the sidebar.

I confirm this bug. It is not only related to new table styles but also to existing table styles. And if you delete a table style in the sidebar it still appears in the dialog "autoformat styles"

I would like to add that renaming a table style in the AutoFormat dialogue requires a LO restart to be reflected in the sidebar.

Dear Ulrich Gemkow,

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
