Description Dan Dascalescu 2018-01-16 11:59:51 UTC
Created attachment 139126 [details]

In the Conditional Formatting dialog, choose Cell value is, "between".

Click in the lower bound field, then press Tab. The cursor should jump to the upper bound field, but lands on "Add".

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated some days ago, I could reproduce this.

Xisco: should we consider this one as bug or as an enhancement?

Change Importance to "normal", because it is an accessibility problem.

So I can't set this bug to FIXED 'cause I'm at a loss as for how to solve keyboard navi between multiple conditions in the list (within one condition, it is easy with Tab)

Normally one uses cursor keys -- arrows up and down, PgUp, PgDown -- to navigate between the items in the list, but in this particular case this ain't possible. Cursor key events are consumed by listboxes and in fact, this is the only way how to control 'em w/ keyboard. 

Need to find some other way, but I don't see any atm, sry about that ...

Dear Dan Dascalescu,

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

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

Warm Regards,
QA Team
