Description Tin Man 2013-03-10 01:27:13 UTC
Style previews in the style drop-down don't show up with font effects (e.g. "Capitals", "Lowercase", "Title", and "Small Capitals").

To be honest, I have no idea what we are talking about. 
Styles selector in Formatting Toolbar?

@mazelm:
Can you explain your Ideas some more precise? Do you see a bug or is this an enhancement request?
Currently with master I see something I would (at least some of them) call a bug: In dropdown I see and character color, outline, shadow, strikethrough, underline, overline, but over-/underline in wrong color. 

And Capital/Lowercase/similar are not shown.

I do not recommend to show "hidden" in preview ;-)

We are talking about the thing I see as a bug?

Yes -- that's exactly what the bug is about.

Well, I think that indeed still can be refined in further steps, may be the developer who created the latest progress already has this on his list?

@kendy: I assume "developer who created the latest progress" is you ;) -- are you willing to easyhackify/mentor this one?
Comment 7 David 2019-01-21 14:29:38 UTC
Some time ago I suggested that the fonts be optionally grouped by type - Serif, Monospaced, San Serif, etc. I did get e-mails but I haven't seen it implemented. I have version 6.1.3.2. I don't know if this is the bug report to which I posted my suggestion or not. Maybe I posted it to another bug report. It really isn't a bug but it would be a great update.
