Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-02-05 23:36:26 UTC
This came up in last week's design meeting, that the shape context menu doesnt provide an easy means of creating a new style after a user has used direct formatting to modify a shape and that the only place to do this is through the 'New Style from Selection' button in the styles and formatting sidebar tab.

It would also be useful to have an entry in the context menu for applying the current formatting to the currently selected style, which is found in the 'Update Style' button in the styles and formatting sidebar tab.

Hi Jay,

Why do you explicitly mention shapes? The situation is the same for all styles in all modules?
So I tend to say yes.. let's have a look at the design in all cases?

Cheers,
Cor

In the design meeting, we were discussing the connection between the line and filling toolbar and the shapes toolbar in impress and how it wasnt easy to create a style from the direct formatting added to the shape. Other modules dont have shape styles from what i've seen.

Yes, I use it regularly. But also in Writer I use the same possibility in Writer and Calc too.

Is it? What a shame ;)

Why add it in Draw/Impress and not in Writer and Calc?

If we dont have shape styles in Writer and Calc, how are we supposed to add more style entries to their shape context menus?

:D 
OK, I mean that also for a cell style and a paragraph style there is the opportunity to update or create new from selection.

Lets see how it turns out here and then we can duplicate the idea elsewhere. :D

for consistency, reread and consider my comment #1 ;)

Switching component to UI and setting whiteboard needsDevEval to get some code pointers, presumably the uno commands.

Triggered by bug 122591, I would suggest to take up this issue :)

> Andreas, do you want to take this?

yes styles support for shapes would be awesome, but 

first there are no commands available isn't it? (codepointer) and 

second the main issue is that you can't use predefined styles for shapes, or at least it would be way more usefull to have in the context menu the most used shape styles from the document.
Comment 14 Heiko Tietze 2019-03-01 13:32:30 UTC
Once bug 123789 is implemented we should add the Filled and Outlined styles. Removing needsUX.
