Description Petr Valach 2021-02-20 19:21:35 UTC
Outline content visibility button is selected if cursor is in headline. It makes difficulties.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open LibreOffice Writer Option dialog and check Expert Mode and Outline folding mode.
2. Type some headline(s) on page.
3. Insert cursor in the headline.
4. Press Enter.

Actual Results:
Outline content visibility button is selected. Pressing Enter button toggles between outline content visibility button states. Just annoying.

Expected Results:
Outline content visibility button is never selected. To toggle between its states user must click on this button.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Hi Petr,

Sounds like a good suggestion.

Here is a patch to make the focus not change to the outline content visibility hide button when it is shown by placing the mouse pointer over an outline frame.
