Description Ed 2011-04-25 02:38:44 UTC
In 3.4 Beta 2 the text box on the "Find" toolbar does not accept the cursor after the bar has been undocked.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the "Find" toolbar, such as by pressing Ctrl+F
2. Undock this toolbar.  If it is already floating then dock and then undock it.
3. Try to enter a search term in the text box.

I cannot confirm this bug.  Based on the information provided I cannot reproduce it.

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.4Beta3  – WIN7  Home Premium  (64bit) German UI [DEV300m103 (Build:3)]" for DRAW, CALC, but not WRITER.

Your OS/PC are?

Thanks for your additional hint, I did some additional tests and I believe I've got it. The problem appears in all applications including WRITER, but fur me only if I did a test for 
Bug 36571 - Find bar does not appear properly at top of screen

That means:
1. open new WRITER document, type an "x"
2. <ctrl+f> to make visible toolbar
3. undock toolbar (do everythin what's necessary to do that.
4. Save document ans "sample.odt", exit Libo
5. restart LibO, reopen "sample.odt"
6. Do some tests,
7. click into toolbar , works
8. Dock find  Toolbar  at the bottom,  click into toolbar , works
9. <Esc> (toolbar disappears), <ctrl+f>,  click into toolbar , works, 
  Caret flashes in Toolbar
10. Mouse cursor to left toolbar border so that mouse pointer view changes to 
   "move" view
11. undock, move toobar into document
12  click into toolbar 
    expected: Caret should appear
    actual: nothing, toolbar unusable

That's the same for all aplications.

is this your area?

No, it is not. Kendy wrote the Find toolbar.
Comment 7 LeMoyne Castle 2011-06-15 02:56:27 UTC
Reproduced in LibreOffice 3.4.0 OOO340m1 (Build:12) 32 bit Ubuntu 10.04
on first try in window that had seen much toolbar testing action (many of add, close, dock and undock) - in that case it required no extra effort - opening (Ctrl-F) and undocking Find bar left text entry insensitive.  Entry of search string possible again after Close or Undock of other toolbar and loss of function is repeatable.
Otherwise *very* hard for me to reproduce - similar to 6. Do some tests @comment #5.  Calibrating for Rainer's experience 'some tests' may be >>10.

Dear Ed,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
