Description Jon Yoder 2018-03-04 18:46:57 UTC
In Writer it is possible to right-click on a tab stop in the ruler to change the type of tab stop. While editing text in a text box, right-clicking on a tab stop in the ruler does nothing. There is no other way to modify tab stop behavior in Draw, either.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a text box and type some text
2.Click on the ruler at the top to create a tab stop
3.Right-click on the tab stop.

Actual Results:  
No context menu appears

Expected Results:
Context menu which displays Left | Right | Center | Decimal

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Bug initially observed on the latest stable available in Linux Mint 18.3 repository which is 5.1.x. Bug is also observable on

Impress & Draw share most of their code, so I set to dupe of an older report against Impress.
