Description Adam Champken 2010-10-15 21:36:05 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
    1. Open the Styles and Formatting window in Writer, Calc, Impress or Draw.
    2. Select 'Hierarchical' from the drop-down menu.
    3. Close the window (or the program).
    4. Re-open.

Expected result:
    Hierarchical view should still be selected.

Actual result:
    LibreOffice reverts to the previously selected view.

Build date and platform:
    Build on Ubuntu 10.10 (2.6.35-22-generic)

Additional info:
    Selecting any other view (All Styles, Applied etc.) works as expected.

Regression with 3.2. 
Experimental mode: Double click crashes the app.
Normal mode: Double click opens the editor - but clicking on the formula crashes the app.

Not sure whom to assign it to...Any volunteers to take it up?

Sadly re-opening; reverted Gert's patch in master until we have a clean license statement from him.

Gert: would it be possible you provide a clean license statement on dev mailing list?(eg: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/License-statement-td4021390.html)

In advance, thank you for your feedback.

Fixed, thanks to Michael Stahl (see previous comment).

We mark this bug report as duplicate of a newer report due the fact that bug is fixed and mentioned in the commit/patch. *This isn't our normal workflow, because this was the initial bug report.*

Thanks for reporting Adam!
