Problem description: When you choose a special character from the dialogue box it closes.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a document in LibreOffice Writer
2. Go to Insert > Special Character
3. Choose a character
4. Click OK
Current behavior: The dialog box closes after inserting the special character
Expected behavior: The dialog box should remain open just in case you want to insert another character after it.
Platform (if different from the browser): Windows XP
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1) AppleWebKit/535.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/15.0.874.106 Safari/535.2
in LibO 3.5.0 beta is no button "Insert" in this dialog
This is a Writer feature request, therefore changed 'Component' to 'Writer'.
Not only Writer. In Calc and Impress the same problem
Have you tried clicking on more than one character in the table? With each click you append the character to the string below the table, and 'OK' inserts the whole string. It's different from MS Office, but not hard to get used to IMHO.
Clarifying the issue.
Setting this as FIXED.
It's not fixed.
The original issue is now fixed because there is a way to do multiple special characters.
Maybe this functionality can be made more intuitive, if the 'OK' button is renamed to 'Insert selected characters'?
A little QA housekeeping, setting to NEW from REOPENED
The Special Character dialog has allowed multiple selection and insertion for some time. So, the remaining work for this enhancement appears to be a simple change of generic OK label to be an Insert action label.
@Jay, @Kendy would you add this to the Design/UX slate for any needed discussion.
The dialog was revamped in bug 64302 and i can see the 'OK' button is now 'Insert' in master.

@Jay, are we talking about different widgets? I'm launching from the standard toolbar, is there another way to activate?

But seems like commit for bug 64302 should already have been present with the 2014-10-28 TB51 build. Oh well...
On to other issues, sorry for the noise.

The git log is useful for these things ;)

Sorry, I think I had only been looking at cuicharmap.cxx in Opengrok and missed your commit against the .ui
