Description Caolán McNamara 2012-03-30 08:50:54 UTC


if you tear off e.g. the font color toolbar pop so that it floats free then open a new calc or writer window it all behaves very strangely.

The most obvious problem is if you tear it off in calc, then open another calc windows under gnome then you can't type into the second calc window.

Either way the torn off window floats above all windows, but it only has meaning to the original window within which it was torn off.

Its eluding me right now how to get the right effect of 46ea2f6cb38536aa1b1a259af2145a581e19f6e8 to not be decorated and look pretty when not torn off yet, and how to get the old behaviour of only floating above its original parent window

caolanm->kendy: care to have a look to see if this is worth backporting to 3-5 series ?
Comment 4 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-04-05 08:14:35 UTC
I added Fix submitter as assignee because this will ease queries and bug tracking.
Comment 6 Björn Michaelsen 2012-06-01 14:31:00 UTC
reopen, selfassign for backport.
Comment 7 Caolán McNamara 2012-06-28 08:17:58 UTC
lets close this, cause it is fixed in 3-6-0, regardless of being backported to 3-5-X or not
