(to see problem, use Tools-Customize-Toolbars tab to add "Apply" to a menu.)
Press the icon. If The Styles Window was closed, then Style window is opened.
If Styles window is open, then nothing happens.
Request is to have Styles window close (like F11 behavior. See bug #85791)
Reason: enables quick check (and closing) of window without having to move mouse. (particularly useful for checking character styles)
Maybe this can be made an EasyHack?
Removing needsUXEval, because already indicated in help page.
Currently the toolbar pages for different modules embed the first line of
https://help.libreoffice.org/7.0/en-US/text/shared/02/01230000.html, which says the icon can also hide the window.
You mean .uno:AutoFormatApply? Cannot follow this idea.

> You mean .uno:AutoFormatApply? Cannot follow this idea.
No. I mean: .uno:DesignerDialog
(at present found on Formatting (Styles) toolbar in Writer, but in principle could be used in toolbars in all modules.)
You can see the icon (and explanation) if you use the link to the helppage.
So button action of .uno:DesignerDialog should be the same as the <F11> shortcut, and should toggle the sidebar deck/dialog the same way.
+1 if it can be plumbed like that, can it?
Not so sure as sidebar on/off is not switching from any tab such as properties to styles. Why not get rid of one of the two uno commands and, for example, always open styles with Ctrl+F5?
It feels to me as if we had this conversation before but cannot find a reference.
The 'Styles...' dialog --> <F11> is ingrained legacy. As is the 'Navigator...' <F5> shortcut from when the .src dialogs were implemented as decks on the Sidebar framework.
Now, as then, what do we gain by changing the legacy <F11> for the Styles deck to be <Ctrl>+<F5> and more tightly relate to the Navigator's usage?
IMHO I don't think we want to go there. Not a lot of benefit to it, diluting what are two very distinct facets of the GUI, while clobbering 20+ years of legacy usage.
Tweaking the 'Styles' (.uno:DesignerDialog) button action to match the <F11> keyboard shortcut (which may require additional control logic) seems more responsible.

No objections to that.
Mind that the menu Styles > Manage styles (F11) doesn't toggle either. Should be done at the same time, I think.
We discussed the topic in the design meeting and decided to agree with the request.
