Problem description: When I choose "Web layout" mode (View -> Web layout), menu command Window -> New window becomes disabled. When I revert back to Print layout mode, it becames enabled again. But sometimes I need to open several windows with the same document, while viewing it as a web page.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a document, choose View -> Print layout
2. Choose Window -> New window. Second window opens.
3. Choose View -> Web layout (in any of windows).
All other windows with the same document will close; Window->New window command becames inactive.
All the windows remain on screen, and possibility to open another window with the same document.
Operating System: Linux (Other)
Version: 184.108.40.206 release
I did confirm this behavior using Version 220.127.116.11 (Build ID: 408fe71bd18616c467b3dcd7ab6756528ffcae2)on Ubuntu 12.04. I'm not exactly sure about what the Web or Print Layouts are supposed to do, but if you open a new window, you would expect changes in one not to affect changes in the other window, I think.
AFAIR, opening one document in several windows at once is useful when working with different parts of it.
In Print layout mode you see document as it would be printed (split to pages, etc), while in Web layout mode it isn't split and its formatting depends on window size.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.2 or later)
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug 3. Leave a comment with your results. 4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

I *guess* this is exactly the reason why it's disabled: our Web view mode is an imitation, implemented using some dynamically-changing pages with width equal to the window, and height of 10 meters. In this case, two different windows would conflict trying to re-format the same document to two different page widths at the same time.
Gülşah might have better understanding of the problem; I wonder if the change mentioned in comment 13 was abandoned because of some conflict of this kind?
