Description Mike Kaganski 2019-09-16 07:38:15 UTC
Print preview in Writer does not show hidden text when it's set to be printed


1. In a new text document, add a character style named "Hidden", with '[x] Hidden' checked in Font Effects (possibly set it also to bold and/or red to easily see it when needed)
2. Type some lorem ipsum text; apply "Hidden" character style to part of it
3. In Options->LibreOffice Writer->Print, check the '[x] Hidden text' under Content group
4. Toggle Print Preview (File->Print Preview)
==> the hidden text is not shown - BAD
5. Open Print dialog (File->Print...)
==> the hidden text is visible in the preview panel (if enabled) - GOOD
