1. open writer in latest master (date above)
2. hide rulers under View > Rulers


Top ruler still showing


All rulers should be hidden.

Can't always rule out user stupidity here, but this looks like a regression to me.

I was able to reproduce this on version in Windows 10. I also tested this on Version on Windows 10 and was not able to reproduce this, so I marked this as Regression. When hiding rulers on the latest master, the top horizontal ruler will not be hidden, whether you use CTRL+Shift+R or the button under the view menu.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new Writer Document in version
2. Hide rulers by clicking View>Rulers>Rulers (CTRL+Shift+R)

Expected Result:
All rulers should be hidden

Actual Result:
The top horizontal ruler is not hidden, but all other rulers are.
