Description am_dxer 2016-09-13 13:28:16 UTC
When launching LibreOffice, I cannot navigate between the controls in the Start dialog using the Tab key. I have to use Alt_Tab to navigate out of the window and then Alt_Tab again to cause the focus to be placed in the window again before I can navigate between the controls with the Tab key.

Yes i've seen this before and thought i had reported it, but i cant find the bug report. :D

On linux, the Open File button has focus when the start center appears and this would solve it.
Comment 2 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-09-13 14:37:52 UTC
workaround: press F6.

Hello am_dxer, *,
I cannot confirm your bug with

OS: Debian Testing AMD64
LO: Version:
Build-ID: 1093721a260d25f986fd794acd914b8fb7bcf92a
CPU-Threads: 4; BS-Version: Linux 4.5; UI-Render: Standard; VCL: gtk2; Layout-Engine: neu; 
TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@70-TDF, Branch:libreoffice-5-3, Time: 2016-12-10_03:55:11
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8); Calc: group
(parallel installed, following the instructions from https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel/Linux w/ de_DE lang- as well as helppack)

Would you be so kind to test it with a newer version of LO than, please?

Hi Tomas,

This is a windows only bug as it doesnt happen in linux.

So this is a regression as it worked fine in 4.4 and is broken in 5.0.

@Aybuke: do you have any ideas about this one?
Comment 9 am_dxer 2018-02-20 18:07:05 UTC
I can no longer produce this in 6.1.
Comment 10 V Stuart Foote 2018-02-20 18:22:32 UTC
Agree <Alt>+<Tab> window selection works correctly landing on StartCenter.
=> WFM

The issue of bug 102005 for F6 component cycling stopping in the Thumbnail views remains.
