1) Start LODev
2) Open a new Writer document
3) Activate Notebook bar
4) Quit LibreOffice via the application file menu
5) The LibreOffice app icon remains in the OSX Dock.
6) Now restart LO by clicking on the icon in the OSX Dock
7) LO starts, but the main application menu has disappeared.
8) Switch context from LO to focus on another app and back again to LO
9) Now the LO application menu reappears.

that's an design decission, but you can activate the menubar with the top left button AND in the top right burger menu.

I have change to new, cause it's an design decission but for global menu's menubar should be on.

Cannot reproduce #5 neither with Vanilla nor master (though a couple of weeks old). Xisco, could you check this please?

Heiko,

This happens on my MacMini 2014 with Mojave, but not on my MacbookPro 2015 with Mojave, where the LO app icon disappears from the Dock on closure.

It seems weird that the behaviour is particular to certain hardware, e.g. only manifests itself with an external display, but it wouldn't be the first time that we've had dispplay bugs similar to this on MacOS.

If no one can confirm say, on an iMac, then it seems likely that this might also be linked to the use of an external display.

Perhaps you run a different version (Vanilla vs. TDF), different software (some libs not up to date), additional software (virus protection), or it was just a glitch but hardware should not be the reason. If the cause remains unclear I would close the issue as invalid or notabug.

It is the same bit version of master on both machines with the same version of MacOS including updates. The only other differences are that:

- the MacMini is connected to an external display via HDMI
- the MacbookPro has its own built-in screen connected to a Thunderbolt display;
- the MacMini and MacbookPro have different hardware (memory, processor, graphics chips)

If it is a design decision, then it is clearly in contradiction with Apple's HIG. To my knowledge, not a single Apple provided application shows such behaviour.

Sorry, my bad, wrong bug.
