It is possible to open more than one Writer document, and it is possible to open the document properties for each. But it's not possible to switch between those property windows using Alt+Tab in Windows.
That is: You can switch the Document Window, but the property window does not change. Happens in Windows (10) and Linux.

confirming: as soon as the second property window is open,
it is not possible to switch to the first property window.
Dear Ulrich Windl,
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
Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa
Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
Probably the problem is Windows-only: I could not reproduce with 126.96.36.199 on openSUSE Leap 15.3, but I could reproduce with 188.8.131.52 on Windows 10.
Version: 184.108.40.206 (X86_64)
Build ID: f5defcebd022c5bc36bbb79be232cb6926d8f674
CPU threads: 8; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 19045
Opened two document windows in LibreOffice and a goggle page.
Opened properties tab for both document windows with different text in description box for reference.
Alt-tabbed between document window one, document window two and a third page (goggle home page).
Alt-tabbed function only changes between the last LibreOffice document viewed and any other page that is not LibreOffice. If you looked at document one last you can only alt-tab from that to the google page and back to document one window.
Retried steps with more documents opened (4 document windows with 2 of them having properties tab opened)
Alt-tab function changes between any LibreOffice document that does not have properties tab open and the last LibreOffice document viewed with properties tab open.
