Description andreas_k 2019-04-10 19:11:15 UTC
.uno:ShadowCursor is in the menubar in the Selct subgroup (writer -> menubar -> edit) but Direct Curser Mode is complete unrelated to the select subgroup where is it located.

solution: find another group where Direct Cursor Mode is related.

How about next to Edit Mode at the bottom of this menu?
Comment 2 andreas_k 2019-04-11 08:16:00 UTC
that could work well, yes and we don't have to update help.
Comment 3 Heiko Tietze 2019-04-11 12:41:41 UTC
So please change it.
