Description Roman Kuznetsov 2018-11-29 06:11:35 UTC
Rework tab Header/Footer in dialogue Page style in Calc.

Now we have some hard way for customize header/footer in Calc. We should use three dialogue for it.
Menu Format->Page ==>opens dialogue "Page style" with tabs Header/Footer, that have else two buttons for additional customize "More" and "Edit".
When you push button "More" you'll can cusomize border and background for header/footer
When you push button "Edit" you'll can cusomize content in header/footer, add fields, etc.

I offer to combine all options from three dialogues in one main window - dialogue "Page style" on tabs Header/Footer. 
I offer make it the same as it made in dialogue Area in Draw.
Plase look at mockup in attach

The dialog would become quite crowded. Another argument against this change is that we have it similarly in Writer where switching on/off is separate from editing. There is a discussion for redesigning the dialog in bug 103035 that is easier to achieve. Ideally we get direct editing like it in Writer.

I do like your mockup. However would prefer to keep the header/footer settings and content separated. So bug 103035 is a good point to look at/start?

The idea got some positive resonance. Merging Page settings with enable Header/Footer and Edit header/footer makes it easier to deal with it. Though there is no complain from users and therefore this has a lower priority.
