The Bullets and Numbering toolbar in Writer (126.96.36.199) keeps popping up despite me repeatedly closing it. How do I make it go away until I want it? I looked through the Options for something like “automatically show toolbars” and didn’t find anything that seemed relevant.
It seems that when the insertion point moves through a section of the document that is formatted with bullets, the Bullets and Numbering toolbar pops up, blocking my view of the document. I have repeatedly closed it by clicking the x in its top right corner, but it doesn’t stay closed for long. It will soon pop back up again! (It is even worse when it is docked to the bottom of the window because there is takes up a huge amount of the limited space on my notebook computer display.)
I would like it to respect my decision to close it. (If I want to edit the bullets and need the toolbar, I will open it explicitly from the menu with Alt-v t u.)
Is there an option to turn off this “helpful” behaviour?
I’ve just returned to LibreOffice after being away for a while (using a plain text editor), so I don’t know yet if this irksome behaviour is specific to the Bullets and Numbering toolbar or if happens with other toolbars as well.
