Description Heiko Tietze 2022-02-09 07:18:00 UTC
While the indicator is useful for individually hidden row/col it spams the view for filters. So we probably better not show the indicators by default.

To draw more attention on this feature a menu entry under View might be a good addition.

Not happy with the label "Hidden Row/Column Indicator". It's hard to translate and not easy to understand. Any idea?

Dotted-line Indicator for Hidden Cells
Comment 4 Heiko Tietze 2022-02-09 16:47:21 UTC
Kept with the "Hidden Row/Column Indicator" for now. The "dotted-line..." is too complicated.
