Description Rizal Muttaqin 2020-03-09 15:39:12 UTC
Step to reproduce

1. Open up LibreOffice Basic (Tools > Macros > Edit Macros ...)
2. In menu bar, go to Dialog and we can find "More Fields" here.

Also in LibreOffice Base: Database Form

1. Open a Base file
2. In menu bar, go to View > Forms, and click Create Form in Design View...
3. A Database Form window appear, go to Form menu bar and we can find "More Fields" again

Same also in Writer's Form menu, there is "More Fields".


Should we remove this "More Fields" submenu and move its content to the parent?
Comment 1 Roman Kuznetsov 2020-03-09 16:35:02 UTC
so that menu will be very large...

any opinions from UX-team?
Comment 2 Heiko Tietze 2020-03-10 14:29:26 UTC
More fields are just variants of the Formatted field above. So WFM. 

What is the benefit of moving the items out of the submenu?
Comment 3 Heiko Tietze 2020-03-16 17:10:01 UTC
WFM reason in c2. Plus, we should avoid to change the menu structure with no good reason.
