test document (page-break.odt)

There is the nice improved page-break in LO-3.5. It allows to modify setting via a context menu. Sadly, it is almost impossible to open the menu.

Steps to reproduce:

1. open the attached test document (page-break.odt)
2. scroll down to see the page break between the 1st and 2nd page
3. put mouse over the page break and press the right mouse button

Result: you need to hover over the page break line, press the mouse button several times to get the context menu ;-)

Expected result: It should show the icon of the pull down menu under the mouse and show the context menu on the first attempt

See also the attached screenshot that it showing the menu that I talk about.

It is much better with the commit https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45141

I still see some flickering when moving move to the left or right. It is not perfect but well usable. Feel free to close this bug if the remaining flickering is not easy to fix.

About hard to open context menu: on Fedora 64 bit in 3.5.3 not reproducible

About flickering: in my case almost unseen. But on slow computers or on page with CPU consuming content situation may be worse

Yup, it works fine with LO-3.5.3. Thanks for improving it. Let's close this bug.
