Yes it happens in the Menu as well as the Context Menu tabs of the dialog. The 'OK' button should be disabled when the field is empty.

I'll also look into this while I am still working on the same dialog. tdf#103160
Comment 3 Muhammet Kara 2016-10-26 07:29:31 UTC
It turns out that the bug affects all places where the SvxNameDialog is used. You can have Toolbars, Toolbar Items, Menus, Submenus... with empty names, by creating new ones, or by renaming the existing ones.
