3.5: turn off interactive "Footer" and "Header" features?

Postby Agilar » Tue Feb 28, 2012 6:28 pm

Is it possible to turn off the annoying "Footer" and "Header" features appeared in LO3.5?

Ok - it's just my opinion. I don't like pop-ups... Can't help it. And I'd prefer to customize the page - to create a yet another page style, than just to add a header. So it's completely useless for me.

Use OpenOffice instead, that doesn't have that feature (yet).

Use OOo or LO 3.4.x. I don't have LO 3.5. There are several bug reports about this new feature, including this one:

Bug 46141 - UI: Header/footer prompts should only appear if user clicks in header/footer area

I don't think it is possible. You can try to suggest a change on the behaviour or at list on the configuration, but prepare yourself to be flamed... Just look at this thread on the ux-advice (!) mailing list

[Libreoffice-ux-advise] The "no border text" feature in Writer 3.5 is not complete

at the end, they arrived to an agreement (sort of), but...
There are two types of people: those who believe that there are two types of people and those who do not.

You actually read all that? I take my hat off for you - or wait, I'll first have to buy one. ;)

I added a comment to the bug report, and an aside comment that I don't like that the format border/background option in that pop up menu activates the direct formatting borders/background dialog box instead of the paragraph style dialog box for either header or footer text.

Has there been any development on this? It seriously bothers me every time I try to use libreoffice. Do I have to go back to Ooo?

Curses... I keep trying to get on their list but can't seem to make it. They have something against traditional support forums, or any kind of support, apparently...

"Clicking on the header/footer area will show the separator."

That means, that only clicking on this area will show the separator, but no longer mouseover.

That's a sensitive issue. ;)

At the moment, the target of implementation is LibreOffice 3.7.0.
But that may change.
The patch is already implemented in the current LibreOffice 'master' builds (LibO-dev 3.7.0.0.alpha0+).
[Please use developer builds only for the purpose of testing.]

EDIT 2012-10-04
Fixed in LibreOffice 3.6.2.
