When I add a caption to an image the text cursor disappears in the UI and I cannot write anymore nor modify existing text.
I haven't seen this bug in older version.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open or create a LibreOffice Writer document.
2. Input some text as you would normally do.
3. Add an image to the document.
4. Add a caption to the added image.
After adding the caption to the image the text cursor suddenly disappears and I am not able to write or modify text on the document (however, I am able to select text). Closing and opening LibreOffice fixes the problem.
The text cursor should not disappear and you should be able to write or modify existing text.
User Profile Reset: No
The VCL I am using is: kde5
No repro Windows and Linux Mint.
I see that cursor is not visible, but I can just click after the text and type.
Do you mean you cannot click in the text to get cursor and type?
please add info from dialog Help->About LibreOffice
don't repro in

Timur, I tried doing the same as you but the cursor only returns after right-clicking. If I click in the text I don't get the cursor back and I cannot type anymore unless I open the right-click menu.

I am using Kubuntu 19.04 and I can reproduce this on the LibreOffice version from Ubuntu and the one from LibreOffice Fresh PPA.
I also observed similar issues when interacting with tables (when dividing or joining in tables for example).
Could you please create and attach a screencast showing the steps?
There are various free screencast software available for use, including Camstudio (Windows), Jing (Mac), Simple Screen Recorder (Linux) or screencast-o-matic.com (Web).
I'll do it and send it when ready
Also, do you have any input methods (like ibus, fcitx) enabled?
Does it happen with other VCLs, like SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk3? And please always verify with "About LibreOffice", as LO does automatic fallback for missing VCLs.
I tried to reproduce the bug in the newest version of LibreOffice (6.3) and I think it was fixed. I will proceed to close the bug.
