Description Eyal Rozenberg 2019-08-08 08:10:39 UTC
I've just opened two MS-Word documents (through a browser link, so they both open in Read-Only mode). For unclear reasons, a "Tip of the Day" box came up - which it shouldn't have, i.e. that doesn't happen to me usually. But not only that - I could only close it through one of the open documents, not the other one, i.e. on one of them, clicking "Ok" did nothing, and I had to switch to the other one, click "Ok", then I could switch back and close the other one.

Unfortunately, I can't quite reproduce it; still thought I'd report.

We can close this a a duplicate of bug 127533. If the tip of the day dialog were converted to non-modal, then we could close LibreOffice without closing the tip of the day first...

Actually, I think it would be better if, when another tip-of-the-day is already open in another window, there would simply not be an extra tip-of-the-day in the new window - regardless of modality. It goes against the idea of it being a tip of the _day_.
