showDropDown confusion

Issue #1336 wontfix
javier wilson created an issue

showDropDownis an alias of hide_drop_down,which is confusing. Since the drop down will only show when showDropDown is False (because hide_drop_down is then False)

I think the option should be renamed or be a negative alias of hide_drop_down.

    showDropDown is the actual attribute name in OOXML. hide_drop_down is there because it's older but since openpyxl we follow use the OOXML names.

    Just so we are clear, the drop down will only be shown if showDropDown is false. I think this should be documented.
