Description Primoz Princic 2013-01-28 19:46:01 UTC
I was just working on some simple table, and wanted format cell I just typed some text into. 

After selecting menu Format / cells no dialog windows opens. After that no dialog windows show (eg - about..) if I select them from menu. Also no function called from menu seems to work. Menu is shown but no action is performed if I select something from menu. 

If I use right-click on cell and select format cell window opens and I can use it. 

I'm not sure how to reproduce the problem (tried), but it is persistent. Sometimes happens as soon as I open the file sometimes after some time. But it does.  

Version (Build ID: 360m1(Build:2))
Ubuntu 12.10

This only affects me in writer, there no menus work so save/save as has to be done differently. In calc, the menues do work.

Is this a problem with globalmenus or libreoffice?

(Ubuntu 12.10, Libreoffice Version (Build ID: 360m1(Build:2)))

This bug report is already quite old.  But despite this important basic feature there was apparently not much reaction yet?  Does it still persist?

Unity did big progress and works far better in Ubuntu 14.04 and newer. 

I never experienced such issue with my own installations of Ubuntu / LibreOffice.
So I close this bug report as WorksForMe. Please, feel free to reopen if you still experience this issue with current Ubuntu and LibreOffice versions.

Best regards. JBF
