Clicking on the button does nothing.

The problem is not only in Calc and not only for page styles. But I see it always in case there exists no parent or the parent is "-none-".

I also noticed this behavior in every component a few days ago in all formatting dialog windows for styles with the 'Inherit from' drop-down field deactivated or with '– None –' selected.

Changing summary from 'Edit Style in Page format dialog should be disabled if inherit from is disabled' to 'Edit Style should be disabled if Inherit from is disabled or None is selected'.
