Description irrevdjohn 2022-12-12 18:59:11 UTC
With multiple documents open in LO on Mac OS Ventura, if I use the keyboard shortcut Command-` (backtick), which is the standard Mac way to switch windows within an application, then LO becomes unresponsive, freezing totally.

This is a new bug since updating to Ventura. LO worked fine on previous versions of the OS. However, this is a LO-specific bug. Other apps still work fine.

I am able to navigate between documents without crashing if I use the Menu > Window dropdown.

After a LO crash and restart, LO opens into document recovery, and sometimes is only able to access recovered docs in read-only mode. This read-only behaviour may persist after a subsequent normal quit and restart of LO.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have more than one doc open (any combination of types—spreadsheet, text, whatever).
2. Use the Mac keyboard shortcut Command-backtick (adjacent to the Z key) to switch the document in focus.
3. See the beachball of death for as long as LO remains in focus. Switch to another app, and choose Apple > Force Quit to get out of LO.

Actual Results:
The LO process freezes.

Expected Results:
Should have cycled through the documents open in LO.

Reproducible: Always
