Description Tamás Zolnai 2018-09-22 15:09:32 UTC
On the File -> Properties dialog, on General tab page some of the static text (e.g. Type, Location, Size, etc) on the left side gets a cursor if we click on the text, which seems wierd, since we can't edit the text there. Also if we use tab to move around the dialog, cursor jumps to the Location static text which again does not make any sense since we can't edit it.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Open File -> Properties Dialog
3. Go to General tab page
4. Click to the static text area right side

Actual Results:
Cursor is shown at the place of the static text.

Expected Results:
Those static texts should not have cursor. Also tab should jump over those static fields.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

I would close this as NOTABUG, since the cursor in these static fields allows me to copy the selected text which could be useful.
