Description Telesto 2017-08-11 19:23:43 UTC
The last accessed tab and not the organizer tab isn't opened by default when adding a new page style

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Format -> Page -> Select Area tab and press OK
3. Styles sidebar -> Page button 
4. Add a new style -> Right Click -> New
5. There Area Tab will be open not the organizer tab. 

Actual Results:  
The last accessed tab is opened by default

Expected Results:
When creating a new style the the organizer tab should be opened -> The first steps should be setting a Name (it's probably also more consistent) 

Reproducible: Always

Seems pretty random otherwise: doing the same steps for paragraph opens the Font tab..

This is a common problem with opening any dialog, that it opens the last used tab of the previous time it was open, and doubt anything can be done about this.

@Maxim, @Samuel, @Bubli: Any thoughts about forcing a tab of a dialog to appear when it launches?

Hi All, I have been poking around style related bugs and came across this request when making a new bug report concerning the Organizer tab page in the Paragraph Style dialog. Here is a patch that selects the Organizer tab page when adding a new style.
