Created attachment 77041 [details]

Currently the possibility to hide properties what might not be used too often is not very useful. Because you can never know whether something is selected there you will have to check "More Options" before every action.

So at least we need some visible "More Options Active", with what we can avoid users' misunderstanding as in Bug "62747 - Search and replace is the worst I ever seen".

But better, of course, would be a solution additionally showing what "More Options" are active: Only "Regular Expressions" or additionally "Selection only"?

valid enhancement request -> NEW
Comment 2 Thomas Lendo 2018-09-28 06:51:15 UTC
Such visual indication is not a good idea for example for impaired people. Better is a solution as it's mentioned in bug 98544.

Closing as WONTFIX.

If you disagree and want reopen this bug, please set back to NEW and set the keyword needsUXEval and add libreoffice-ux-advise@lists.freedesktop.org to the CC list. Thanks.
