Description tmacalp 2015-09-17 15:24:00 UTC
LibreOffice's page pane renders all layers, regardless of whether they're hidden or not.

I work with large and complicated facility diagrams that contain dozens of layers that will never be shown at the same time.  Rendering these drawings is already slow with just the normal non-hidden elements on the screen.  Enabling the page pane preview forces this rendering to occur twice.  Then, to add insult to injury, it renders all of the hidden layers too.  This making using the page pane unusably slow.  Luckily, these drawings are single pages, so I can just disable the page pane.

Steps to reproduce:
1. New Drawing
2. New layer
3. Draw a shape
4. Hide the layer by shift-clicking layer

The shape is hidden on our page, and should be hidden in the page pane too.

Our shape is hidden on our page, but still visible in the page pane.

Note that the shape still appears in the page preview even if the layer is has "visible" and "printable" unchecked.

This behavior is present in OpenOffice 3.2.1, so I'm marking it as Inherited from OOo.

Dear tmacalp,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
