Description j.a.swami 2021-03-22 00:53:51 UTC
From what I've seen, the way documents are displayed in Web View makes content-visibility icons on the left margin mostly disappear. 

Suppose a subhead is aligned to the left margin and has a content-visibility icon to the left of it. In Web View, we will have so little space to the left of the subhead that the icon will be mostly hidden.

I suppose that with LTR text the same effect would occur on the right. 

A fix might be for Writer to leave a larger margin in Web View by default. Or to move the icon far enough right to be seen, and move left-justified subheads far enough right to allow for the icon. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a document with subheads and text.
2.Toggle "Show outline content visibility button" on
3.In menu: View--> Web

Actual Results:
Content-visibility icons are mostly hidden

Expected Results:
The icons should be fully visible.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

"LTR text" above should of course be "RTL text.

I confirm.

Line numbering (menu > tools > line numbering...) also suffers this in web view mode.
