It is already inconsistent for fontwork objects themselves. If you use
the fontwork gallery dialog, it is inserted. If you use the category in
the Gallery, inserting is not possible. So for fontwork I think, it
should not be possible to insert them.

There a further inconsistencies. If an invisible layer is active, the
classical drawing objects are set to 'disabled', but the custom shape
objects are still look useable.

So my suggestion would be, to set all kind of objects including the
'fontwork gallery' icon to 'disabled', if the active layer is invisible.

I think, that the hyperlink dialog should be consistent in itself too.
So either allow text and button kind or disallow boths, but not allow
text and disallow button. I prefer to disallow both.

All disabling should only affect GUI. It should be possible to insert
objects into invisible layers via macro.

Do you want to write a bug report?

Kind regards
