Description Björn Michaelsen 2015-10-29 03:01:53 UTC


"Toggle" toggles the master view, if a master document is open. This is entirely unintuitive, if the user is not editing a master document (which is most of the time): The disabled button doesnt say what it toggles, even less why it is disabled.

This UI EasyHack is to change the Tooltip for the button to "Toogle Masterview".

Bonus point to make the "Toggle" button should disappear for non-master documents and only be visible on master documents.
