Textbox Toolbar missing in Draw

asked 2018-04-19 10:54:14 +0100


because I received a docx I could not open with my old LibreOffice, I recently installed Libre Office

But now when trying to use Draw I miss any toolbar that is supposed to appear based on selected context. Especially the Texbox Toolbar, where you can change Style, Fontsize and Font beside others, is just gone for good. I need to ventue to the Tools menu and going the long way to format every piece of text inside that Draw... I guess that isn't the way its supposed to be, or is that considered a feature?

I've seen other topics here about simliar cases, but they were about Libre Office 5, and their suggestions (changing the toolbar style for example) didn't solve my problem.

About Libre Office says this (Linux is a Debian Jessie): Version: Build ID: 8f48d515416608e3a835360314dac7e47fd0b821 CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 3.16; UI render: GL; VCL: gtk2; Locale: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8); Calc: group

Oh... come on....

while deperately trying to grab that half pixel that would trigger the resize arrow to resize the "Pages" area, I notices I had a similar area at the very right of my window, which happend to be "closed" (that darker area with the little triangle on it). Upon opening it all the toolbars suddenly where visible again.

Well, maybe some day another guy happens to ran into the same situation as I did. Maybe this will help him (or her) avoid the trouble I had.
