Description Emil Tanev 2017-09-14 14:46:03 UTC
Open Writer
Double-click Insert Image icon

Issue: Two windows open. When you select the first image, and then the second, the first is discarded. 

Comment 1 Dieter Praas 2017-09-20 12:08:49 UTC
I don't think, that this is a bug, because the first picture only discards, if you have selected it. for me it is an expected result, if in this case a new picture replaces the old one.

If the first picture isn't selected ist is no problem to add a second picture.

So I would say NOTABUG.

The bug is in opening two windows.
Comment 3 Dieter Praas 2017-09-20 15:51:37 UTC
I confirm your bug with LO
One click => opens one window
Two clicks => opens two windows

I couldn't observe this behaviour for other icons, so I think it should be changed.

Confirming some general mishandling of doubleclick events in Toolbar controls on Windows.

And actually, this affects multiple button controls, result depends on behavior of linked command--Insert Image or Export PDF opens another dialog instance, while Show Tracked Changes toggles the GUI element.

But, not clear if the doubleClick is being mishandled as a single click, or if there is a timing issue, I've tried OS adjustment of the mouse/touchpad doubleclick delay and it seems all toolbar button actions are handled as single clicks.

Are we missing test for doubleclick

Comment 7 Heiko Tietze 2017-09-24 07:36:14 UTC
Definitely a bug since you can open as many dialogs by clicking repeatedly (Qt based). Dialogs should be modal, with some exceptions when interaction is of interest.

Dear Emil Tanev,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
