Description Harald Koester 2018-07-02 19:16:05 UTC
In order to reproduce the bug:

[1] Create new text document. Page is in portrait mode
[2] Enable Orientation icon in toolbar Formatting:
 (a) Display context menu of Formatting toolbar.
 (b) Select: Visible Buttons > Orientation 
[3] Click icon Orientation. Symbols Portrait and Landscape are displayed.
[4] Click Portrait. Page changes to landscape. 

Expected behaviour: No change of orientation or better display a message: “Orientation is already Portrait.”. Possible is also also to grey the icon Portrait if the orientation is already Portrait.

Bug probably has occured since version 5.3.0. In versions before the icon Orientation does not exist.

Tested with version 6.0.5 (64 bit, Win 10)
Comment 1 Dieter 2018-07-03 18:16:44 UTC
Reproducible with LO 6.0.5
Comment 3 Xisco Faulí 2018-07-04 10:35:21 UTC
The behaviour is not observed on the sidebar
Comment 4 Xisco Faulí 2018-07-04 10:46:12 UTC
I guess we need to check if the button used is diferent to the previous one in https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sw/source/uibase/sidebar/PageOrientationControl.cxx#191
