Description Hayo Baan 2023-03-07 19:19:59 UTC
Recently LibreOffice started to behave very annoyingly when I have multiple documents open. When moving my mouse over a window with another document, LO suddenly makes that the front most window. Not my intention at all, and a severe hindrance. Is there a way to prevent this?

I’m using the latest AARCH64 version on an M2 Mac running MacOS 13.2.1. This behaviour is fairly recent (don’t know the exact version when I started noticing this) and is also present on an Intel Mac.

Note: the document window seems to be brought to focus after the mouse moves over one of the buttons on that document (both on the top and bottom of a document window). So it looks like some button behaviour triggers it. It doesn't matter if LO was the application in use or not.
