Description Susan Cragin 2015-06-09 19:34:37 UTC
There has been a lot of discussion (sometimes rancorous) about the need to have an intrinsic outline function in libreoffice. The model given is M$ Word.

Well, a basic intrinsic outliner could be accomplished with a single button-click. 

Here's how. 

Make a toggle command button that does NOTHING but change the properties of "Text Body" from "visible" to "invisible." 
Then, make that toggle able to be user-pinned to a keystroke. 

I get my intrinsic outline right now by going into Styles & Formatting / Text Body / Modify / Font Effects / and then check "Hidden." That hides my text and leaves my outlining alone. 

I would LOVE if I could make any style invisible with a keyclick. But I would settle for just Text Body. 


So let's say I have 8 active styles. I'd hide Text Body with a keyclick, and then I could hide Style 8 with another keyclick? Fantastic! Then Style 7, and so on up the food chain.

Let's ask for UX advice.

I would suggest to mark this as duplicate of one of the outliner issues. And add the idea as suggestion there.

Sounds reasonable. I would recommend to implement it somehow similar to layers, the proposal can be found here

Closing this ticket as duplicate of the classic 54772'er ticket.
