I think we should implement "Live Preview" in LibreOffice. Mainly, this feature consist of seeing formatting changes before applying them (when choosing a font for example).
This is a really useful feature IMO.

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Request for enhancement still valid for LO 3.5.1
Font Live preview is implemented in Calc only. I hope someone will import it to Writer.

Please implement this feature (consistently across all LO applications). It can make formatting much more comfortable.
Currently, the user must apply the new format (style, font, color...). If it doesn't look as he/she wants, it must be "undone" and some other choices used eventually.
This feature will enable to just keep the mouse cursor for some time (e.g. 1 second) to "live preview" be applied. After moving the cursor out the preview will dropped out immediately. Very simple, very effective.

Code pointer: This is how it's been done in Calc: https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=dd763604784fe10ee06a2f9c1fddf74cdf890bcc
Probably not an EasyHack though.

The help tip for this feature in Microsoft Office is "Show a preview of how a feature affects the document as you hover over different choices."
This feature is implemented in the toolbar and context menu.
1) Toolbar - When a ribbon or mini toolbar control has multiple choices, like a comboboxes (e.g. font name), listboxes (e.g. paragraph style), split button menu (e.g. font color), and group button (e.g. line spacing).
2) Context menu - When the context menu has multiple choice submenu options, like paste special and wrap text.
