Style previews in the style drop-down don't show up with font effects (e.g. "Capitals", "Lowercase", "Title", and "Small Capitals").

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

@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 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.

Reproduced in Writer

This is what we are talking about: When a given style has a font effect (1) applied (like CAPS or SMALL CAPS or...), then preview in the dialog (2) and formating in the document (3) are good BUT preview in Style sidebar (4) is not consistent.

Expected: Preview in the Style sidebar consistent with font effect.

Dear Tin Man,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
