Description canned 2020-11-06 11:23:22 UTC
Suggestion for improvement of the character style popup:

Actual Results:
The button "Standard" in the tab "Organizer" seems to have no function, but is clickable (irritating).

Expected Results:
It would be useful if you could reset ALL format settings (across all tabs) to the standard format by clicking the button "Standard" in the tab "Organizer" (german "Verwalten").

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

I assume, it it the same as described in bug 128469 for paragraph style dialog. "Standard" resets the settings of the style to those of parent style. But that should at least be explained in LO Help.

So I see some options
1. Improve documentation
2. Mark this bug as duplicate of bug 128469 and extend bug 128469 to character style dialog
3. Something else????

=> Set to NEW, because it is at least parallel to bug 138469
cc: Design-Team for further input and decision
