Description Emil Tanev 2017-11-18 09:00:21 UTC
Open two instances of Calc on a machine where email client has not been configured
In one of them, send the document via email
You get a stopping warning message saying that the email client has not been configured - leave that opened
Go to the other Calc document
Undock the sidebar
Now click the top right button (settings) and try to Dock it
Issue: It is not possible to Dock it while the warning message is opened

This also happens with other  windows left open, such as the About window. 
It also prevents navigating between different types of LibreOffice documents, e.g. between drawings and documents.

Confirmed. It's hard to say how modal dialogs should work exactly, I could imagine them preventing access to other windows as well, but they don't, so why shouldn't docking the sidebar work?

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 https://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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

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

Warm Regards,
QA Team
