Just checked in my version of Impress (Version: 6.3.5.2  Build ID: 1:6.3.5~rc2-0ubuntu0.18.04.1~lo1).

I can get the three extra buttons to appear under 'visible buttons' when I click the drop down box in the Text Toolbar.  But I can't make them permanently visible - they remain grayed out and non-functional.

I also have a Windows10 box with LO 6.3.5.2 64bit - downloaded directly from the LO website. Its behavior is the same - non-functional and grayed out.

I have failed to correct this by trying to customize the toolbar. Customization works if I add (for example) Basic Shapes to the toolbar, the button is added and is functional.  But no success with the 3 vertical buttons.

Re: Impress Text Toolbar

Hi Philip,

I have just been reminded that under "Tools -> Options -> Languages" the
"Asian" checkbox needs to be set. You can leave the drop-down list set
to "None". Not sure if a LO restart is necessary, but it can' do any harm.

This works for The TDF distributed edition for Linux, but I cannot say
if it works for any distro provided edition.

Regards
Dave

Re: Impress Text Toolbar

Hi Dave,

That works. Good for both the Ubuntu version and the TDF version under Windows10.
No need to restart LO, it worked ok once Asian was ticked.
