Description Zeki Bildirici 2012-06-18 01:05:44 UTC
Problem description: 
There is no option to Show/Hide All comments in Calc. It causes a big usability problem!

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a spreadsheet document
2. Add some comments
3. Try to close them all by a single option.

Current behavior:
There is not such an option for Calc, while the other apps has it

Expected behavior:
As to be focused on usability, to have this feauture

More: Similar to the bug 

Think that someone have sent you a spreadsheet, has 50 comments on each page, which opens by default. Nightmare

Alternative workaround(not a realistic one):

Thanks for this extension. 

A small issue, the LibreOffice extension has the .ods file extension. I've changed it to oxt, even i have manage to install but it did not work :(

Then i installed it from AOOO extension site: Then it worked.

Could you update the LO's extension as a oxt file.

Btw i think you are the author of the extension. And thank you for this beautifull tool. 

But, imho, it is a neccessity and this extension or as anpther feature must be implemented to the deafult installation.

It will be very nice to have this extension bundled in future releases.

Also it is a key point ppl devote LibreOffice with interoperability in business.

People receive spreadsheets related to their business, which are created by MS Office. They open it and recevie a full page with lots of comments, and no visible area. Seriously, it is funny to spend time to close all comments one by one, to see the content.[1]

People have not much time and patiance everytime.

I hope it will be fixed soon :)

Best regards,
