The document is opened via dcom and the parameter "preview" was passed. Normally, the document is opened without menu and toolbars and readonly.
In 3.5.4RC1, the document is readonly but the menubar and the toolbar from an addon are visible.

Hi. Thank you for submitting a bug report. I am trying to understand what your issue is. When you say that you open a document in "preview mode", do you mean that you open Writer, go to File -> Open. Then you go to File -> Page Preview?

The document was open with these parameters

I see it as a bug because in older versions the menubar was not visible. But as all menubar fonctions are disabled, it has no consequences for the utilisation of the program.

From what I gather, somewhere along the way (probably Version 3.6), it was decided to make the main menu bar visible. My reference is a discussion in the UX-Advise thread. The topic of that discussion is deciding what is the best approach and what kind of functionality is needed for the page preview.  I will close this as an enhancement request, because it is not a bug, it involves changing a current feature.

Here is my reference to the discussion:

Changing priority back to 'medium' since the number of duplicates is lower than 5
