Description Roland Illig 2016-12-10 16:30:39 UTC
When I am in a spreadsheet and create a new document via File > New, the text cursor is missing, so I cannot just start to type.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start LibreOfficeDev, create a Calc document
2. File > New > Text document
3. type something

Actual Results:  
Nothing happens; there is no text cursor visible.

Switching windows by pressing Alt+Tab twice makes the text cursor appear, though.

Expected Results:
The text cursor should be there, just as when creating a new text document in other situations.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Typing works for me with 5.3beta1 and 5.4 master build / Windows 7 after the mentioned steps.
Bug looks somewhat similar to bug 100626.
