Description Tin Man 2013-02-07 11:33:11 UTC
While some icons are easy to distinguish, some are not, and it would be helpful if there were labels next to those icons.

The ability to show labels next to certain icons is missing, and, in order to progress with the usability of the suite, it would be helpful if it was added.
Operating System: All
Version: Master

What labels are missing?
Comment 2 Joel Madero 2013-02-19 04:58:29 UTC
Marking as NEEDINFO.

@Mazelm - once you provide us with a list of what icons don't have labels please set status back to UNCONFIRMED and I'll try to fix the issue or have someone else take a look. Shouldn't be hard to solve at all but we need to know what icons don't have labels.

Thanks for your understanding and support

This bug isn't asking to add labels next to unlabeled icons.
Rather, it is asking to make it possible to show labels next to certain icons and not next to others.

I havn't a clue what problem we are talking about here. I even don't know what kind of "icons" ... . Form fields?

Please contribute a careful description concerning the problem and your suggestion due to <http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport>

So this is possible in LibreOffice by using

toolbar:style="image text"

in the toolbar.xml; like eg.

<toolbar:toolbaritem xlink:href=".uno:Save" toolbar:helpid="5505" toolbar:style="image text"/>

Closing as worksforme; please reopen if you want to track the actual adding of the text to the respective buttons.

Best if the design team does it themselves - all you need to do is to clone the LibreOffice repository, find the toolbar.xml's using eg.

find . -name 'toolbar.xml'

edit them (add the toolbar:style="image text" where you want to have the text too), and push the changes to gerrit.  We'll review / merge from there.
