Description Gabriel Cossette 2011-05-09 20:07:23 UTC
Hi,

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).

Ref. http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/powerpoint-help/preview-formats-fonts-and-styles-before-you-apply-them-HA010203413.aspx

This is a really useful feature IMO.

Thanks!

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.
