Description andreas_k 2019-07-06 21:53:56 UTC
Description:
In writer default empty page you have the styles Addressee and Sender which were used for the Envelope dialog. As Addressee and Sender are related to Default Style, they are visible in the main view, but from my point of view this styles should be not used from the user ONLY if the user make an Envelope.

So can Addressee and Sender be hidden for the default writer files? OR if not, can Addressee and Sender be grouped within an Envelope group.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. writer -> Styles Sidebar
2. Hierarchical view
3.

Actual Results:
You see under

Default Style
- Addressee
- Sender

Expected Results:
Hide Addressee and Sender Style cause it's more an internal style than an style an user should be used (outside envelopes)

or add an Envelope style so that the Styles sidebar will look like:

Default Styles
- Envelope
  - Addressee
  - Sender


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

It might well be that they are also used by users in a template for a letter (and then also in the envelope).
So I wouldn't restrict this.

We talked about this topic in the design meeting. While more organization is always welcome, the drawback of another level is the unclear relevance of this new style.

So as long we do not get more clear opinions to change we keep the status quo (NEEDINFO for more input).

As alternative solution Bogdan suggested to introduce a new filter type, let's say "Simple Hierarchical", and just filter out the not so frequently used styles.

This applies also to bug 126257 and bug 126277.
