Whenever I select a drawing in a document by clicking on it, the symbols bar 'Drawing object properties' appears on top, which means that the entire text of the document is shifted down by one line, and my cursor is no longer where it was. And vice versa, if I click again on the text.
Suggestion: Either: Add the bar at the bottom of the window, below the 'Drawing' bar, having them cover the last text lines. Then the two bars which belong together will be placed together. Or else, if this is impossible: Add the bar at the top as before, but cover the uppermost text line, so that the document is not shifted down.
Hi Christian, some ways to handle this:
(1) I have opened the "Formatting" toolbar as second toolbar below the "Standard" toolbar. If I work on a shape or an image the "Formatting" toolbar is closed and the "Drawing Object Properties" or the "Frame" toolbar is shown at that place. That way the text window does not change.
(2) Drag the "Drawing Object Properties" toolbar to the place you want. Dock it at the bottom of the text window or keep it floating at the bottom. The position is remembered across session. So next time the toolbar will not open at its default place but where you had it last time.
(3) Do not show the toolbar at all. Therefore click on a shape so that the toolbar opens. Then disable it in View > Toolbars. This setting is remembered too across session. To do not loose functions, you should compare the toolbar items with the sidebar and the context menu of the shape. Most functions exists in one or the other. You can then add the missing functions to the context menu via Tools > Customize. At a short glance, I thing only the "Rotate" has to be added.
thank you, that solves it.
Maybe then the top position should not be the default for this bar (and maybe some other bars)
