Description Cor Nouws 2014-08-15 14:08:57 UTC
Text in Writer can have settings for Position, via Format > Character.
When done if e.g. the frame for the style Title is selected, the settings become part of the style.

However, opening window with setting for any style, does not offer the tab Position..

Has always been this way - as far as I can remember

Is there any reason why it would be a bad idea to add that Tab properties in Dram/Impress too ?

You mean the changed title should be listed among the master slides?

Don't see a reason why this properties shouldn't be accessible at this dialog.

No. In Draw/Impress:

The 'Character' dialog offers four pannels

   Font - Font Effects - Position - Highlighting

The composition of style panel(s) Title, Subtitle (Master mode or Normal) picks up just three

   Font - Font Effects - Highlighting

So where are the controls held in the Position tab for working with Drawing/Slide style for Text box graphics?

Lack of Rotation is obvious, we define a Vertical Text box graphic object for that. And otherwise we rotate the graphic frame itself--not the text.

But, where to set/indicate Superscript/Subscript, or scaling of H-font width, or adjustment of kerning?

Seems like the Position tab is needed. Or, are those settings _not_ recorded into style (and setting each from Character dialog is always direct formatting)?

- Create a text box, set e.g. Width scaling 200%
- create new style with that box selected
- apply to another text box
  > width scaling applied

@heiko: should it be hard to fix this?
Comment 16 Justin L 2020-02-22 13:34:42 UTC
This would apply it to the entire paragraph, wouldn't it? Is there much point in setting an entire paragraph to superscript?

Oh - missed the example of width scaling as the desired setting. Sorry.

Define "hard". The UI might not be such a big deal but it also needs to be in the edit engine. For example I don't see how to rotate a paragraph by 90° in Impress. Copy/paste from Writer always inserts an OLE object, wouldn't you expect styled text with full compatibility? Why do we need the Position attributes at all?

Add a shape
type Apple Pie
choose Format > Character
set font scaling to 200% on tab Position
create new style from that shape
  > font position is part of the new style

select style in side bar
choose Modify
  > font position is not there

It should be there.
