Description Telesto 2020-06-29 11:50:30 UTC
Description:
UI: Make the setting text wrap more accessible 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Insert -> shape -> call out
3. Double click the shape -> Access text area
4. Right Click -> Text attributes 
5. Text tab

FWIW
This opinion isn't even present when Right Clicking the shape + 'add textbox' (IMHO the add textbox should go.. but that's another discussion]
 

Actual Results:
You need to access the text area + right click

Expected Results:
Direct access when right clicking the shape.. yes, it's about text etc and maybe technical right place, but this buried to deep

Alternative
1. Open Draw
2. Insert a shape
3. Right Click it -> Edit Style kind of thing.. (




Reproducible: Always

Or via menu Format > Object and Shape > Text... both methods are easy to use for me. Other opinions?

Format > Object and Shape > Text -> OK .. but more the context menu type.. And with the menu right click context menu is obviously nothing wrong.. it's about access to the specific setting ;-)

BTW, where should I look when using the tabbed toolbar? Format > Object and Shape > Text is not an option as far I can tell

That's a different question. Do we have space for wordwrap, Andreas?

Important functions should be available in the context menu.
(It's not good that quite some have been removed in some stage..)
Comment 6 Heiko Tietze 2020-07-02 15:27:22 UTC
We discussed this topic in the design meeting. The function is easy to access, could be in the context menu but would take some space. And after changing the default as requested in bug 134369 it won't be needed much. So resolving as WF.
