Description sasha.libreoffice 2011-03-09 06:35:41 UTC
To reproduce this problem click on Fontwork tool on drawing toolbar. Appears dialog with Fontwork examples. On left up side is dotted rectangle. Users will suppose, that it is cursor. But when click Ok, nothing happens. We need click by mouse additionally and becomes much bigger cursor. Only then we can click Ok to insert Fontart into document.
I suppose that if that initial cursor does nothing then it should be removed.
On windows is additional small problem: cursor is from two line, but under tooltip it becomes dotted.
reproduced on Mandriva 64 bit kde 4.4 and windows XP 32 bit

Reproduced with

LibreOffice 3.5.0rc3
Ubuntu 10.04.3 x86
Linux 2.6.32-38-generic Russian UI

Small clarification: it is not about mouse cursor. First element in Fontwork window outlined, but not selected, it should be or normally outlined and selected or not outlined and not selected.

That behavior not seen on LO (Win7 32bit)
Comment 5 sasha.libreoffice 2013-06-24 09:03:18 UTC
reproduced in 4.0.4 on Fedora (RFR)

Steps to reproduce:
0. Start Writer
1. Click "Fontwork Gallery"
2. Click "Ok" on dialog window
Expected: into document inserted or first available Fontwork or last used
Actually: dialog just closed. Nothing happens.

Sorry..seems that I did wrong procedure while trying to reproduce :)

Also confirmed with LO (Win7 32bit), only double-click on any type of Fontwork will apply that chosen Fontwork.
