Would it be possible you attach a simple example so we can try to reproduce this?

Comment 2 Thorsten Wagner 2020-02-15 20:04:10 UTC
Sorry for being not detailed enough: Issue takes place with password protected documents saved with LO (attached a sample file "Test.ods" with password "Test" and a screenshot showing password dialog and empty window behind).

I gave a try on master sources updated today + gave a look at the screenshot, what's the pb here?
What should be behind the password dialog ?
Searching on Google about what Excel does, perhaps you mean you expected a window with menu bars?
Comment 6 Thorsten Wagner 2020-02-16 10:44:51 UTC
No, behind the password dialog should be nothing but only the password dialog. This was the behaviour of previous LO releases, e.g. LO 5. It seems to be a regression.

It's just UI then and perhaps it changed on purpose, let's ask to Xisco and Heiko.

There was a similar issue concerning Preferences dialog which has been fixed: tdf#127751

Looks to me like a blank window, note the soffice.bin in the title bar. Should be suppressed.
