Contextmenu Text and DrawText in Writer, Calc, Draw and Impress
Same structure than the other context menues
1st group: cut, copy, paste
2nd group: Text formating group
3rd group: dialogues
4rd group: style group
- Calc also have drawtext popupmenu.
- celledit can also have Paste Special menu.
- Why Special Character is only in celledit?
Should special character be in the context menu causes ordinary there are no insert commands in the context menu.

I don't see a good reason to have access to special characters in the context menu. It would be necessary if you leave the edit mode by clicking the toolbar but this doesn't happen.

I don't know if it is solved. It looks different from the image from the description of the bug.
I made a screenshot from Calc.
I am waiting for an answer. I know some context menu change depending of content. Anyway it's too diferent.

I don't see many changes you proposed in attachment 144542 [details]. Have I missed something?
In general: I'm not happy with the 'Edit style' items (not only in the drawtext context menus) if this let's edit the 'Default' style of this style type.
This is for example the case for 'Drawing Styles' in Impress. My thoughts are the same as why I'm for the change of 'Default' paragraph style in documents to 'Text body': 'Default' in any style type should not be the standard used style. If it's the standard style, then we've the problem that also here occurs: If the user edits the 'Default' style, this has an effect to all other styles. A default style should be changed wisely and not because it's presented in a prominent area of the UI.
I would love to see Wrap text commands as far as it's possible. Wrapping is always an important feature as it's mostly hidden in the toolbars or sidebar decks.
