Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-01-27 15:01:40 UTC
Workaround in original report of "Bug 59928 - EDITING: Impossible to fill text into Fileds - Functions - Placeholder - text" shows up an other problem.

Normally your reach a dialog to edit placeholder properties by a double click on the placeholder, this function is broken anywhere where I see Bug 59928.

So this one at least is related, probably a DUP?

I tested this on and and is an issue with text placeholders. A single click should allow one to insert text, and a double click should allow one to edit the text parameters. Tested on W8 pro 32 bit, x86.

Changing priority to medium / minor as it's possible for use to work around although definitely not ideal.

Obsoleted sample seems to be itentical to Attachment 73735 [details] for Bug 59928

Please generally do not copy identical sample documents as attachment to other bugs: <https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA-FAQ#How_to_cite_other_Libreoffice_Bugs_in_FDO_Bugzilla>.

It would be great if you could check whether the fix for Bug 59928 in 4.0.1 dailies also heals this problem here.

Hi Rainer, 

Thanks for the link to that document - I actually hadn't seen it before. Good to know about the ability to link to attachments in other reports. 

Re 4.0.1 if I get a chance I'll test against that but we are focusing now on and .3 as you may understand. 

Maybe you might have a chance to test against the nightly before me? If you do let me know what happens.

ah yes i remember that double clicking only worked if you click on
the left half of the field, but not if you click on the right half.

should be fixed too.
