Comment 5 V Stuart Foote 2021-01-12 14:59:27 UTC
This seems correct. Bcz the font effect is affecting the selected characters, which in the STR is the *entire* paragraph. So the paragraph is effectively hidden on the document canvas--no edit cursor is visible

But if you make the entered text "LibreOffice and more", and then select LibreOffice and hide it, the edit cursor remains visible as does the remainder of the paragraph.

Delete the " and more" and the paragraph again is hidden. Any preceeding or following paragraph without hidden character hidden effect is visible and the edit cursor present.

To me this is correct intent of the character Hidden font effect.

IMHO => NAB
