Making Navigator show all tabs all the time

When I used OpenOffice I liked that I could use the Navigator to show every tab, every heading level, all at once.  It was like I could see my project at a glance and VERY useful for a lot of my work.

Now that I'm using LibreOffice the Navigator seems to require a click on each + symbol, no matter how many levels of  headings I tell it to show. Every single time I open a document it's the same deal.  I still keep an OpenOffice.org install on my computer just for this feature alone.

I want to make it more like the way I used Open Office's navigator, but I guess that means a feature request.  I am not a programmer but it shouldn't be hard since the OOo code already had done it the way I like it.  How can I formalize a feature request?  This list seemed like the closest place to do so.  Thanks!

Re: Making Navigator show all tabs all the time

I've just been learning LO Writer, which I am liking a lot. But being able to set the Navigator to show all levels of headings as the default is a make-or-break feature for me. I'm not a programmer, but am happy to help in other ways--testing, documentation, etc.

Hi all!

Concerning the navigator, you might be interested in (commenting) the
feature requests:

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36308

and

Bug 36309 - [UI]Better design / interface for Navigator's tree-view
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36309

Cheers,
Christoph
