Description Eyal Rozenberg 2024-04-22 21:15:01 UTC
The bottom bar in Writer has 3 buttons for multi-page layout mode: Single page view, multi-page view, book view.

I believe it should be possible to choose among these from the View menu - not just via bar buttons. Otherwise, their existence is easy to miss when focusing on the menus for functionality search (and even when focusing on the menus-and-toolbars for functionality search). They also fit the purview of the View menu very well, along with Normal/Web, Zoom etc.

The three could be placed in a submenu, so that only one additional menu item would be necessary.

+1, but dupe

The status bar controls are in viewlayoutctrl.cxx [1] and would need new UNO controls to be able to add to the View menu. Or to customize assign as keyboard shortcut.
