Description Mark Hung 2018-01-12 22:10:21 UTC
Description:
I use ubuntu 17.10.1 and is not able to make any docked toolbar floating by dragging off the vertical handle of the toolbar. It works fine on Windows.

Version: 5.4.2.2
Build ID: 1:5.4.2-0ubuntu0.17.10.1
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.13; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); Calc: group

Not sure if this is a regression.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer or Impress.
2. Use mouse to drag any docked toolbar to the central area.

Actual Results:  
A dashed box appears when dragging and disappear when realising mouse button, but the toolbar is still docked.

Expected Results:
The toolbar become a floating toolbar.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice
from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.

I guess that's under a Wayland session? In which case it was an intentional change, see https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=a6d324f30bd5cfd09d54614d8df67b7857550429

@Maxim Monastirsky 

Yes. It's Wayland session. Not sure if this issue should be wontfix or notourbug, or can be left open and wait someone to fix it someday. Floating toolbar is still useful in some cases.

Maxim discussed the issue last December: https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libreoffice/2017-December/079108.html

I found some clue about how GNOME is solving this:

"I was chatting with Christian Hergert at SCALE last year and he really
wanted us to move over to the code Builder is using. At the time he was
thinking about pulling it out into a library, but I'm not sure if he has."

Well, apparently Christian has done it, but there is nearly no documentation:
https://github.com/chergert/libdazzle/tree/master/src/panel

Only this confirms it:
https://github.com/GNOME/libdazzle/blob/master/doc/dazzle-docs.sgml#L144

"Many content creation applications need some sort of panel system. Dazzle provides flexible panel widgets and docks for this purpose."

As this "bug" definitely exists, I am changing to NEW. Whether or not this is intentional, it is not possible to float toolbars under Wayland.

Saw this bug was pinged and tried to reproduce it.

Toolbars do not seem to be draggable at all anymore. Was this feature removed or is it just disabled on Wayland now?

What you see is different from this bug. The toolbars have "Lock Toolbar Position" ON as default in LO 7. If you set it to off (context menu), then you can drag the toolbars.
