Description Mitch Claborn 2012-05-27 09:15:27 UTC
With the "Styles and Formatting" dialog open as a separate window, when
I do a "Paste Special" into the current document, immediately after the
paste, focus goes to the "Styles and Formatting" window. Seems to me
that focus should return to the document.

This bug is still present in Libre Office (tested on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit fully updated; LO deb files downloaded from the Libre Office website and installed using dpkg).

I can elaborate on the original bug report:

1) It affects not only the Styles dialogue, but also the Navigator dialogue.

2) It happens not only with Paste Special, but also other actions such as F7 (spell check) or adding an image.
