Description Dan 2012-05-08 10:03:11 UTC
Problem description: On CentOS 6.2 (KDE 4.3.4), LibreOffice windows on the second monitor open all menus (incl. context menus) to the *LEFT* instead of to the *RIGHT*. This results in sub-menus opening *over* parent the menu instead of to the right (see attached screenshot).
This has been reported so far for Ubuntu as well (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/952325).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open LibreOffice on the second monitor
2. Click for any menu (e.g., File)
3. The menu is aligned to the left instead of to the right

Current behavior:
Menus aligned to the left on second monitor

Expected behavior:
Menus aligned to the right on the second monitor as they do on the primary monitor (and all other applications, including OpenOffice 3.2 on the same machine & OS).

Platform (if different from the browser): 
CentOS 6.2 KDE 4.3.4              
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:10.0.4) Gecko/20120425 Firefox/10.0.4

I am seeing this on Fedora 17, libreoffice-core-

Very annoying.

I have just confirmed that this problem also occurs with the 3.5.3 RPMS from http://www.libreoffice.org/download/
