Description goodguy00@zoho.com 2022-04-26 13:00:28 UTC
in version (which i could not select from the dropdown below): when bringing up the find dialog (undocked), it does not get the focus. writing the query ends up in the document.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ^f to bring up find (undocked?)
2. type something

Actual Results:
typing ends up in the document

Expected Results:
typing should go to the find boxes field

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
(because of this, i immediately downgraded to where this behavior was not present)
might be somewhat related to bug 137287

   don't need to treat floating toolbars differently for set-focus
Comment 4 goodguy00@zoho.com 2022-05-20 13:46:04 UTC
just verified with still wrong focus.
Comment 5 Aron Budea 2022-05-29 06:01:54 UTC
Same commit identified as for bug 145287.
Comment 6 Caolán McNamara 2022-06-17 15:21:35 UTC
Proving quite difficult to find a fix that doesn't cause another problem.
Comment 7 goodguy00@zoho.com 2022-07-12 13:25:26 UTC
did not understand you comment. this user-interface bug is preventing me to update libreoffice at all. i have to stay on (last good version) until this is fixed. because this behavior is against ALL usability. in every other app (be it kwrite, any other editor, firefox, chrome, etc) when i press ctrl-f i get the search dialog AND the focus is with the search field. unlike in the recent versions of LO, where i constantly start typing my search text and that goes into my document instead of the search field. this is extremly annoying and i don't understand, how nobody can understand this misbehavior.
