Description Alex Thurgood 2020-05-19 11:15:02 UTC
Start LO 7 alpha 1.
Under Preferences > LO Dev > View 

there are a number of Skia-related option tickboxes which do nothing as yet, because Skia is not yet supported on macOS. However, the user can still see and tick the boxes, thinking that they might actually do something.

These boxes should be removed until such time as Skia is implemented for macOS. 

Steps to Reproduce:
See above description

Actual Results:
Skia option boxes can be ticked, misleading the user into thinking that they actually do something, whereas they don't.

Expected Results:
Skia boxes shouldn't be shown until Skia is actually supported on macOS.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes
