I can reproduce the behaviour, but I'm not sure whether I'd actually call this a bug. The file picker is (currently) modal to the whole application, i.e. all LibreOffice windows become inactive (and greyed out) until the interaction with the dialog is finished.

I think I once saw that Microsoft Office also blocks all other windows when using e.g. "Save as", but don't have it at hand to check right now.

But this behavior is only reproduced for VCL=KDE5, not for gtk3

And also I compared it with LO 5.4.7.2:
it's possible to work with Writer document with opened dialog in another LO application.

I get the same behaviour using Kwrite.
I know this is not happening using GTK3 but I think this is the way KDE5 is meant to be.
I think this is NOTABUG

I doesn't think it is NOTABUG. 
My arguments are: 
1) If to start LO using gtk3 - all is correct (at the same test stand)
2) Previous versions of LO works fine 5.4.7.2 using kde4 (at the same test stand)

Also, I tried with KWrite:
- open the 1st document
- open the 2nd document
- open save as dialog in the 2nd document

--> the 1st document can be edited successfully

Thats how KDE does it -> NOTABUG I'm afraid.
Comment 8 Vera Blagoveschenskaya 2019-01-23 13:30:28 UTC
Verified as NOTABUG for

Version: 6.3.0.0.alpha0+
Build ID: 6e80862ee6851b75fc7fa628156400bb044391ee
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.14; UI render: default; VCL: kde5; 
TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@86-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2019-01-22_16:54:24
Locale: ru-RU (ru_RU.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

Current behavior is:
- both LO applications became disabled if Open dialog is opened for one of the applications
- impossible to enter any text to both applications
