The following mistake was new in LO 184.108.40.206 und persists in 220.127.116.11: In the navigator side bar, there must be two arrows for 'Promote Chapter' and 'Demote Chapter'. Actually:
- There is one button showing a downwards arrow and named 'Promote chapter'. It does move the chapter up. So the text is correct, the arrow is wrong.
- The second button is missing altogether. It should be named 'Demote chapter' and show a downward arrow.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press F5 to show Navigator.
There is only one button to move a chapter up or down, and it bears the wrong icon.
There should be two buttons as described above.
User Profile Reset: No
Incidentally, the terms 'promote' and 'demote' are appropriate for the actions 'Promote/Demote Level'. What is meant with 'Promote/Demote Chapter' should actually be called 'Raise/Lower chapter' or 'Move chapter up/down'.
I can't confirm it with

An update on the original report:
If the Navigator side bar is wide enough, both of the promote/demote chapter icons appear. Only if the width is insufficient, the last icons in the row are hidden. The first one to disappear is just the upwards arrow which I had missed.
This works better in the Windows version: Shrinking the width of the bar is blocked at the point where icons would get hidden. Either transfer this solution to the Linux version or else show a symbol at the right edge indicating that there are more icons (like in the Firefox Bookmark symbol bar).
In the Windows version, associations of texts with the arrowhead icons are okay (^ "Kapitel höher verschieben"; v "Kapitel niedriger verschieben"). In the Linux version, they are inverted as reported before: ↓ "Promote chapter"; ↑ "Demote chapter". The buttons do what the text says; the arrows are wrong. Swap arrow symbols. And while you are at it, improve the texts as suggested before.
Hello Christian Lehmann,
which icon set are you using ?
I have no knowledge of different icon sets. I have just the icon set that the installer chose. In comment 2, I imitated the icons; you may recognize them.
Go to Tools - Settings - View to check it. OTOH, it would be nice to share a screnshot. Thanks

navigator icon set
I assume the vertical arrows must be in the order ↑↓.
Icon style: Automatic (Elementary)
Arrows/Directional symbols are in my opinion always a suboptimal solution. But in this case I agree that promote (move the chapter upward) cannot point downwards.
Andreas, Rizal: Tango points up with "double arrows" for promote while Colibre, I assume that's what Christian is talking about but because of Linux it could also be Elementary, changed the direction.
The issue with cropped controls is known and requires a better implementation of the sidebar.
Could you please try a different icon theme?
Done from Tools -> Options -> View: "Icon style"
Seems the issue with reversed Promote/Demote icons in the Navigator deck occurs just with the Elementary theme. And *is* present on Windows builds (126.96.36.199) when Elementary icon style is selected.
And there is similar issue with the icon's used for Next/Previous in the Find toolbar--bug 122367
Sorry, I have no access to my Linux for six weeks to come.
On Windows 7, results for the various styles are as follows:
Colibre, Breeze, Karasa Jaga, SiFr, Tango: okay.
Elementary: icons swapped.
Thus, it does seem to be a problem limited to the Elementary style.
Moreover, I second Heiko in that several of the icons are not particularly iconic.
Is this a dupe of bug 115986 which is not actually corrected?
Yes. The two reports could be merged.
And in fact, although 115986 is said to be corrected, it is not.
i can tell many more "bug"s in pre 6.2 release cycle for elementary theme. Instead of send particular patch I propose to backport latest elementary build to current released version. Moreover, it would change the policy which prevent icon backporting so we as designer could backport other icons theme as well. Definitely icons would not break stability.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 115986 ***
The inversion issue was indeed a duplicate; sorry for that.
The terminology issue raised in my original report, "Additional Info", remains to be solved. Not only the icons should be unequivocal, the tooltips should be, too.
