Hi folks

The pronoun "none" used in many widgets in the UI brings extra work for 
translators and users.

None has a gender in many Latin languages (Aucun, Aucune) (Nenhum, 

It can also mean "without" in many places.

Often we don't know exactly what a single "none" is about (because it a

So may I ask you guys to explicit the object that is related to none 
(i.e. replace the pronoun) ? As in "no outline level", "no function"...

I believe a more precise UI/translation will improve user experience 
with LibreOffice.
