Page Margin dropdown
As tdf#91920 has been resolved, the functionality should come to another part of UI, let's say the dropdown menu of Page Margins of Layout Tab in Tabbed interface (aka Ribbon-like interface).
At least two options should be placed there: Gutter and Gutter Position
Step to reproduce:
1. Enable Tabbed interface in Writer
2. Go to Layout tab see Page Margin

Can you make a mockup where this gutter stuff should be located. I had a look in Word, but there it is located at the page dialog page.
What can be a good idea is to located the page dialog command left to Page Margins so that you have full control with the very left command in the Layout tab.
Is the gutter a property that is broadly known and frequently used? Or something for experts, confusing average users and not suited for quick access.
We discussed the topic in the design meeting.
The gutter is an expert property and most users neither know it nor need to apply it. Plus, even for the experts there is no need to change it frequently (which is the reason for a prominent place). Another argument against the enhancement is the fact that this widget is named "Margins".
While this makes the request a WF, the widget is placed on a Notebookbar with plenty of space. And the gutter might be added additionally.
