Toggle formatting marks command does not toggle hidden text like the equivalent MS-Word command.

This is a quick and convenient way to display hidden notes in a document which are not displayed in the final document. The feature is often used in document templates.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select some text within a document
2. Format, Character, Font Effects: Hidden
3. Click Toggle Formatting Marks Button to observe it has no effect

Actual Results:
Toggle Formatting Marks Command has no effect on display of hidden text.

Expected Results:
In MS-Word the Toggle Formatting Marks Command displays hidden text as expected.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
MS-Word is not available to provide a sample file. A sample file should be prepared in MS-Word to compare the actual codes used for hidden text to check if the issue is the codes or the command.

IIRC MS-Word also has settings for viewing and printing hidden text and that functionality should be checked too.

While this is a duplicate of bug 107658, work on bug 107722 would provide UNO command allowing the hidden paragraphs to be fully detached from the <Ctrl>+F10 formatting marks--which for bug 58434 will pick up more of the formatting held in Field Shadings.
