Hi :)

Ahh, it sounds like "Enhancement" is the new word for "Feature request".  I
doubt the severity rating needs to be high and it's polite to keep that as
low as reasonably possible but as high as you feel it needs to be.

Good luck and many thanks from
Tom :)

Hi :)
Good answer and very quick.

That makes it sound like it might be a relatively "Easy Hack".  If so
then it helps the project because it gives devs who are new to this
project, or people who are fairly new to (or learning) coding, to get
practical experience in this specific project.

@ Henri  please feel free to post a "bug report" but mark it as a
"feature request" instead of it being a bug as such.  Hopefully the new
bug-reporting system makes it easy.  The old system had "feature request"
as one of the options in one of the drop-downs.  If it's not obvious in the
new system then just add something into the subject-line or summary to make
it clear that it is a feature request.

Also if it's a menu item then it might be possible to add it into a
customised menu-bar but i have no idea how to do that and find the idea a
bit scary tbh.

It is always nice to have a work-around or two but it's even nicer when a
better longer-term solution is potentially on the way.  Being involved in
helping make that happen feels really good and is one of the many
advantages of OpenSource projects.

Tom :)

​Tom, the procedure suggest by Piet is, indeed, easy to follow - and, as
a matter of fact, is to be found via LO help​
​ (I somehow managed to overlook it before posting). But since the arrow
tool is found in the draw function toolbar in both Draw and Impress, it
should not be too difficult to add it to Writer as well. This would
contribute to the latter application's user-friendliness....

I have opened Bugzilla and shall now file a report, under «Enhancement»
under the category «Severity», which is the nearest I can come to the
«feature request» you suggested....

Thanks for the tip !...
