Description joel.grolimund 2019-03-14 10:11:00 UTC
I have to write a lot of code into LibreOffice Writer and I was thinking about a feature to insert code. The result would be a formatted code with colored keywords and line numbers at the beginning on each line.

Actual Results:
It does not have such a function or format.

Expected Results:
I would expect that such a feature would be implemented.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

I know that some editors (eg: Notepad++) do this but I expect more an IDE (eg: Eclipse) to do this instead of a word processor.
Colored keywords means LO should know how to parse code in different languages.
IMHO it would be more a bloating but I'm not UX specialist and may be wrong.
That's why I put needsUXEval

Xisco/Heiko: any thoughts here?

We closed similar requests as WF (see bug 86846). Code formatting is out of scope; copy/paste works pretty well at least from Visual Studio Code and Qt Creator (via direct formatting) but not with Kate.
