It's opening the sidebar with styles. It's not opening a page to edit that style.

UX team, are we sure it's a bug?
Comment 4 sdc.blanco 2021-01-05 03:15:00 UTC
Reproduced STR and generalized by using Customize to add "Edit Style" to Styles menu, and added a keyboard shortcut to Edit (.uno:EditStyle) where it also does not do anything from the menu or the shortcut.

(iow, problem is with .uno:EditStyle and not because it is a contextual menu)

It is possible however, to use contextual menu Modify command in Sidebar to edit styles.

Also reproduced comment 1 using  (the sidebar is opened with the appropriate cellstyle selected)  (but no editing dialog)
Comment 5 Julien Nabet 2022-04-09 09:34:25 UTC
I gave a new try with master sources updated today, indeed it opens the sidebar with styles but nothing more.

In console logs, I see now these 2:
warn:sfx.control:132182:132182:sfx2/source/control/dispatch.cxx:1206: Childwindow slot missing: 25917
warn:sfx.control:132182:132182:sfx2/source/control/dispatch.cxx:1206: Childwindow slot missing: 26189

Comment 7 Julien Nabet 2024-04-09 08:06:30 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I could still reproduce this.

Heiko/Xisco: any thoughts here?
I mean, do you agree edit style dialog should be opened?
Comment 8 Heiko Tietze 2024-04-09 09:11:02 UTC
We have .uno:EditStyle assigned to Alt+P and .uno:DesignerDialog with F11 both open the Stylist in Calc. Likewise in Writer, the first one should open respective the properties dialog.

Btw, on macOS the shortcut is option+p, which inserts a π-symbol.
