Description Yousuf Philips (jay) 2014-11-29 16:09:37 UTC
The embossed and engraved font effects are located in the relief drop down list of the font effects tab of the character dialog. It would be useful to have uno commands created for these options, so they can be added to the toolbar and also the menu bar.

status NEW.

P.S. please Jay take a look at Bug 58845 which is similar request

Yes additional commands like this are needed, and assume the buttons for these new .uno commands would be left unselected, on the Formatting toolbar in this case. 

To be available from the Visible buttons or Customize toolbar dialog? Otherwise, I thought we were clearing away some the of the toolbar and menu item crud.

Ask that because we seem to have an issue already with too many buttons being assigned to specific toolbars and making the toolbar annoying to configure.

For example, with current master, in Writer Standard toolbar there are 59 buttons and separators assigned to the Visible Buttons menu. With this many items in the menu, it displays taller than my 1080 pixel monitor.  

Made more annoying bcz the down scroll button for the menu widget slips under the Windows taskbar in full screen mode.

The intent in the future is to have an font effects split/group button that would have all the different font effect commands in it, so embossed and engraved would be in the drop down as well (attachment 103420 [details]).

Once created, it would be hidden in the formatting toolbar for users to enable it if they wish until the split/group button is created.

The Visible Buttons menu has one major problem with it, it disappears after you enable/disable a single button (bug 85786). With this major problem, i always go into Customize Toolbar... if i need to enable/disable more than one button. Once that is solved, using the submenu would be simple to use.

At my laptop's screen resolution of 1280x768, the 4.3 releases Visible Buttons menu is larger than the height of the screen.

Many of these hidden entries will be going away once split/group buttons are created for them. I was hoping that it would have made it into 4.4, as they are part of my toolbar proposal (bug 81475), but that isnt likely. There are buttons that i've hidden as part of the proposal, and am awaiting the reaction from the public on the current changes in order to eliminate them from the toolbar.

You can use the scrollwheel to cycle up and down. :D

Nothing to say against those commands, if the buttons are not shown by default.

Guess this is an EASYHACK. And setting component to UI since we have a special keyword now.

NEEDINFO for the code pointers.
Comment 6 Xisco Faulí 2016-09-15 15:26:48 UTC
Removing keyword 'needsDevEval' as this bug is an easyHack
Comment 7 Xisco Faulí 2016-09-27 10:36:04 UTC
Changing status: NEEDINFO -> NEW
Adding keyword 'needsDevEval'

Adding UNO commands is not an easyHack, but something that can have quite a lot of side effects.

Removing, easyHack
