Description Aleš Nezbeda 2021-11-01 14:47:51 UTC
When focused on page (having cursor on page) clicking on wanted style in styles preview in home tab unfocuses the page, which results in unability to write before u click on a line that you want to write on again.

This becomes annoying when you writing document from scratch and you create new headings etc. as it breaks your flow more than is necessary.

This also occurs when changing styles in styles sidebar.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open document
2. Change style via styles preview (or styles sidebar)

Actual Results:
Styles preview is now focused and when u start typing you start searching in styles by first letter instead of writing text into the document.

Expected Results:
Document stays focused and cursor stays on the same position as it was before changing style.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Using LibreOffice fresh from official Arch repository (shouldn't be the reason, as this seems more like not implemented feature not bug)

I confirm it with

Version: (x64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 1d5dee817bde88d78dbcc0d00f88492568e131d5
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 19043; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI: en-GB
Calc: CL

I would treat it as a bug, because if you select styles in sidebar it works.
