Description John 2019-10-13 01:29:40 UTC
Description:
Test 1:

1. Launch Writer
2. Menu > View > Hide Whitespace = True
3. The whitespace between pages will be removed.
4. Close Writer. Launch it again. The whitespace between pages will be restored. Hide Whitespace option will be False.

Test 2:

Very similar to the previous one, but now I'm trying to save the state of this option in the template.

1. Create template.ott at C:\Users\John\Desktop\Test and open it. (You will have template.ott in the title bar.)
2. The same as step 2 in previous test.
3. The same as step 3 in previous test.
4. Save template by pressing Ctrl-S. Close Writer.
5. (5a) Open template again. Or (5b) Create a new document based on it. In both cases the whitespace between pages will be restored and Hide Whitespace option will be False.

To be certain the reported issue is not
related to corruption in the user profile, could you please reset your
Libreoffice profile ( https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile ) and
re-test?

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the issue is still present
Comment 5 Heiko Tietze 2019-10-24 10:07:28 UTC
Don't see a reason why Hide Whitespace should work differently to let's say Field Shading. And when I open LibreOffice, change Field Shadings, close and reopen the last choice is remembered. That's not true for Hide Whitespace, which is always off.

(In reply to Xisco Faulí from comment #4)

I already tried to reset the profile. Tested with 6.2.7, 6.3.2, 6.4.0.

The "Hide Whitepspace" state doesn't stored neither in the LibreOffice nor in the template/document.
