Hi Jean-Baptiste, 

Thank you for the swift reply! 

I forgot to add the screenshot. Now it is here!

Thank you for the screenshot. Not reproducible for me under Linux.
Set status back to unconfirmed.

Best regards. JBF
Comment 4 Dirk De Muynck 2016-09-06 08:46:32 UTC
You can reproduce it as follows :
- open a lo spreadsheetfile from internet (or for example the one I attached)
- start editing
- select some adjacent cells
Result : sidebar scrambled.

I can reproduce it in LO 5.1.5 on both windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux.
The bug is very annoying since I'm using libreoffice in school for my pupils and with this bug the 5.1 version is unusable.
It does not occur in 4.4.
I adding a screenshot and a calc file you can open in order to reproduce the error

Ok, I reproduce with LO when editing a read-only file in Calc.
Setting as NEW.

I did some testing and this bug was introduced in lo All later versions have it. All the previous versions including 5.0.*  do not have this bug.

Because people often open files from the internet, this bug is very annoying.
If you save the file first to the hard disc and open it afterwards, the error does not occur.
Comment 8 Maarten 2016-12-24 10:39:16 UTC
The proplem of the scrambled sidebar is stll there.. also in lo version Suggestion was to turn on/off Open GL support. This does not solve the problem, sidebar layout keeps gettin scrambled when saving an .docx-file as an .odt-file!
Comment 9 Maarten 2017-02-27 13:54:52 UTC
The sidebar mee still continues, also in %.3, in writer, calc and impress

Can you provide some clear steps as simply opening the file as read-only wont produce attachment 126853 [details], as the properties tab of the sidebar is disabled unless you go into document editing mode, and even with that, i'm unable to repo.

@Maarten: Can you reproduce this with 5.2.7 or 5.3.3? And if so, please copy and paste the version information found in the Help > About LibreOffice dialog, similar to the above. Also with the mess, do the controls still function correctly?

In order to reproduce the sidebar scrambled error, do the following :

1. Open this file from internet
2. Enable editing
3. In the sidebar click on the styles icon => it will show you the navigator iso styles
4. In the sidebar click on the page styles icon > sidebar scrambled

Confirmed that its a regression introduce in 5.1 as its not available in 5.0.6.

The workaround is to click the Navigator deck and then the other decks work correctly again.
Comment 13 bureautiquelibre 2017-08-22 09:36:36 UTC
Bug still present in Version 5.4.

Also present in Impress.
Comment 14 V Stuart Foote 2017-08-22 13:02:27 UTC
Confirming, with simple STR of setting OS "read-only" on an ODF document being opened first time to profile. Infobar will show with only Navigator tab "enabled"

Clicking the "Edit document" button will toggle the Inforbar off and enable the other Sidebar tabs--but clicking on any only displays just the "Navigator" deck's content panels. 

The Properties deck may or maynot show on initial toggle, but other Tab buttons display the Navigator deck. 

Advancing down and back through the Tab bar eventually picks up rendering of all the other decks.

suggests the UNO toggle (button click on the InfoBar) into SID_EDITDOC does not seem to fully clear/reset the SID_DOC_READONLY temporary handling on the initial reload.
