Description bugquestcontri 2013-02-01 05:33:32 UTC
Text boxes in articles can contain longer text. Therefore automated text flow with hyphenation etc should be enabled like in normal text. 

When editing the paragraph format in a text box the "text flow" tab does not show up for setting the desired text flow. This should be added/enabled.

I can be contacted.

Operating System: Windows XP
Version: release

Thanks for reporting!
I'm sorry for this, but I don't understand completely what you mean/could be better. Is it possible to provide steps to reproduce the 'behavior' so a developer who read this request can fully understand what you exactly mean/would like to see improved.

Kind regards,

Sorry for my poor description. It seems I worked too long hours that day.

The text in a frame could be a longer one . For that, automated hyphenation and other paragraph formats become important. However, the window FRAME does not contain the tabs to format the paragraph. Therefore, it becomes necessary to select PARAGRAPH additionally to format the paragraph. This slows down productivity. 

Request: Please add the normal PARAGRAPH window as a ab to the FRAME window.

Sorry for my late answer. I'm going to mark this enhancement request as NEW. I recommend the developer who'll work on this one to ask advice to the UX-advice (http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/libreoffice-ux-advise).

Kind regards,

While you are typing text in a frame or a textbox, you have access to modify paragraph properties by Format > Paragraph or right-click > Paragraph, so it isnt useful to add the 9 tabs in the paragraph dialog into the frame dialog which already had 9 tabs of its own.

UX-Team: please reopen if you disagree.

I also think we shouldn't mix paragraph properties with the properties of other objects. For some users it makes sense superficially but it would complicate the whole style system.
