1) open a text document
2) select View->Hide Whitespace
3) close LO
4) open a text document
Expected: "Hide Whitespace" mode active
Actual: single page mode active
This would be much more manageable if "Hide whitespace" was not a hack on top of "single page" view but instead a separate "continuous" view without paging. Then the "continuous" view mode can be remembered as the other view modes and numerous bugs that result from abusing the "single page" mode for emulation of "continuous" mode can be resolved.

How is this bug a duplicate of bug 37967?
It's an independent bug of its own, whether on not one considers "hide whitespace" to be a reasonable and adequate resolution of bug 37967 - 'Option like "MS WORD's normal view" needed'
