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.

Still the same behaviour with

Calc: CL threaded

but rethinking it, I thin, it's the normal behaviour like with paragraph styles, charcter styles, ... If you create a new style, you can select it for the current document. It will disappear in the list of applied styles.

So for me NOTABUG. Ulrich, fell free to change it back to NEW with a short reasoning, if you disagree.
