Description Stéphane Guillou (stragu) 2022-08-31 17:26:27 UTC
Description:
The Formatting Aids settings specific to the Web view are ignored, and the general Formatting Aids settings are used instead.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. "View > Web"
3. Make sure that "View > Formatting Marks" is on
4. Write a couple of words, press enter
5. Got to "Tools > Options > LibreOffice Writer/Web > Formatting Aids" and change some settings (like unticking the markers for Paragraph ends and for spaces)
6. Click OK

Actual Results:
This has no impact on the formatting marks displayed on the page. In fact, it is the settings in "Tools > Options > LibreOffice Writer > Formatting Aids" that are used.

Expected Results:
The formatting aids settings specific to the Web view are taken into account in the Web view.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: Yes



Additional Info:
I feel like LibreOffice would benefit from removing this web-specific Formatting Aids section entirely, and follow a single set of formatting aids settings for both the Normal and Web views.

I don't think it's Linux only, rather Writer vs. Writer/Web. Repro 7.5+ Win.
