Description Telesto 2021-01-02 16:24:32 UTC
Description:
Page breaks are part of the formatting, but down show up in style inspector

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. press CTRL Enter & type something
3. Look in the style inspector for the page break

Actual Results:
Nothing to be found

Expected Results:
If the style inspector should show everything (which I assume) this might belong here too.. But well. we could discuses the relevance..Being kind of noticeable

[Except for those who argue about page break being object]. But well my 2 cents.

No exceptional strong opinion.. could make a consistency argument. Or say i'm nitpicking..

Lets process it through UX.. because I fear the are jobless :-). This can be queued to process later on (as being the case with most of the topic I bring up.. but I assume that's known fact)

The opposite ;-)

Don't see a reason why an attribute shouldn't be listed. Mike, do you?

Agree. Unless UX decides to hide the "noise" (like tdf#135106) ;-) - my PoV is that it should really provide as much as possible (but having mentioned tdf#135106 here, I must add that I do not have problems with that change - just wanted to show that sometimes there are decisions to hide something).

But is 'Page Break' an attribute? Style Inspector shows all the attributes of the text at the cursor, how and when will Page Break be included in a text at the cursor? I think 'Page Break' is more related to current Page rather than to any Character or Paragraph and thus should remain hidden.

I think so, but I may be wrong about this.

5.6 <text:soft-page-break>
The <text:soft-page-break> element represents a soft page break within or between paragraph elements.
As a child element of a <table:table> element it represents a soft page break between two table rows. It may appear in front of a <table:table-row> element.

Page Break can be added to the paragraph at the Text Flow tab in the properties dialog.
