Description Harald Koester 2011-11-08 00:58:26 UTC
In Writer it is not possible to hide the list of categories in the Navigator. Nothing happens when you click the "List Box On/Off." button.

Hi Harald,

This only works when the Navigator is undocked - can you pls check that?
For me it works fine.
Thanks, Cor

Hi Cor,

you are right. If the Navigator is undocked, the "List Box On/Off." button works fine.

The problem is, that the "List Box On/Off" button is not greyed like other buttons in the Navigator, if they don't work. So I expected a reaction when I clicked it and nothing happens. Perhaps the button should be greyed, if the Navigator is docked.

Regards
Harald

Changing subject (was " UI: Button "List Box On/Off" in Navigator does not work " )

Comment 5 Harald Koester 2011-12-14 09:16:22 UTC
Hi Cor,

try this:

1. Undock the Navigator.
2. Hide the list by clicking the "List Box On/Off" button.
3. Dock the Navigator again.

In my system the list of categories is not displayed. The area where it should be is grey and it is not possible to display the list by clicking the "List Box On/Off" button. I think this behavior is not intended.

Hé, funny.
Start Writer, Navigator being visible.
 > Button "List Box On/Off" is there
Undock Navigator
Dock it again
 > Button "List Box On/Off" is hidden.

In 630 beta1 and 6.3 master. On Linux.

@Harold: what about you?

The same with version 6.2.4 on Win10.

I assume the intention was to display the button "List Box On/Off" when the Navigator is undocked and vice versa not display the button when the Navigator is docked. To my opinion this makes sense, but it does not work. Always if you open the Navigator docked with F5 or together with a new or existing document, the button is displayed and does not work.

And a special effect that occurs if you switch the list box off:
...
[1] Undock the Navigator.
[2] Switch the list box off.
[3] Dock the Navigator again. The List is not displayed and is replaced by a grey area. The "List Box On/Off" button is not displayed. Expected: List should be displayed.
[4] Two times F5. Now the area is still grey and the "List Box On/Off" button is displayed, but it does not work.
