Description Matheod 2021-03-26 23:13:48 UTC
Libreoffice ignore keypress when hovering outline arrow button

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable outline
2. Create a document with some titles
3. Click on a title and hover the outline button
4. Try to write anything, try to press Ctrl+A

Actual Results:
Nothing happen

Expected Results:
The written text should be added to the document when we try to write something,
all the text should be selected when you press Ctrl+A

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
It's easy to randomly put your mouse over the button. Even more because the button doesn't appear immediatly so you can start writing and the button appear under your mouse and you can no longer write text.
