paragraph format options, text flow tab.

"Do not split paragraph", "widow control" and "orphan control" could be managed better.

Now you cannot set "Do not split paragraph" if "widow control" or "orphan control" are set; equally, you cannot set "widow control" or "orphan control" if "Do not split paragraph" is set.

This is annoying, because I must remember to uncheck something in order to check other control.

I think this isn't necessary: the rule can be the following:
- always permit the user check these checkboxes
- checking "Do not split paragraph" automatically disables (graying them) "widow control" and "orphan control"
- cheking "widow control" or "orphan control" automatically disables (graying it) "Do not split paragraph"

This way the user would be more confortable.

You don't mean disable the way the UI means it (which is that grayed out items cannot be changed.)  You mean that it just gets unselected and grayed out, but not actually disabled.
Highly unlikely to happen, I would expect, since in LO 6.2 master enabling one still fully disables the other.
