Description reikenberg 2019-01-03 13:14:01 UTC
Description:
I was looking for a workaround for
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122231
and take a look in the Navigator to select the FontWork over there.
But it is not available.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a fontwork
2. Try to choose it in the Navigator


Actual Results:
Fontwork is not available in the Navigator

Expected Results:
Fontwork should be in the Navigator like other elements.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

I support this proposal
Comment 2 Regina Henschel 2019-01-03 14:11:37 UTC
The Fontwork-shape has not got an automatic name. It will be visible, when you have named it. So the request would be, to name Fontwork-shapes automatically, same as done with other shapes. Or to change Navigator to make all shapes available, whether they are named or not.

I would prefer the first solution. Regina, how is it possible to change Navigator to make all shapes available?

It is not yet possible as needed. The Navigator in Draw/Impress has for 'Show Shapes' the options 'Named shapes' and 'All shapes'. But in mode 'All shapes' the selection of a shape via Navigator does not work. (bug 62851, bug 90277, bug 111839).

The selection bug is clear: over images you cannot select the fontwork but it works for shapes. Once this issue is solved, would you use the Navigator? I doubt that and actually I also don't see fontwork as a special object eligible for being listed extra in the Navigator. Besides the problems Regina point out. So let's close this request as WF. Feel free to reopen.
Comment 6 Regina Henschel 2019-01-04 14:40:14 UTC
I disagree. A Fontwork shape is the same kind of shape as Triangle or Smiley or any of the other custom shapes. Only that it has the attribute 'draw:text-path="true"' set in its <draw:enhanced-geometry> element. I see no reason, why it shouldn't get an automatic name like all other shapes.

I agree with you, Regina. Fontwork should be treated like other shapes. Hiko, I think arguments are needed to treat them different, not to treat them equal. So I think this topic should be discussed in the design meeting (see also similar bug 122445 regarding grouped shapes)
Comment 8 reikenberg 2019-01-06 17:28:11 UTC
In my opinion as an end-user,
fontwork should be named like all other objects.
It makes them usage more easily and prevents confusion,
why should the end-user think to giving the fontwork an name if he want it selectable in the navigator. Everyone would think its a bug, no matter it has a technicaly reason for it or not.

So if the fontwork get no name, i bet this will reported as bug again sometime.

Heiko, let me cite yourself: "Why should an object be hidden in the Navigator?" (bug 122231 comment 3)

So can we reopen this bug?

I've put it on the agenda for the design meeting with the question if fontwork is text or object. But of course, we can reopen meanwhile.

That, and a few more details: Please list fontwork at the Navigator under Drawing objects and label the objects similar to shapes FontworkX.
