Description mohican 2013-03-11 22:13:59 UTC
What happens :
after inserting a formula in a writer document, many menu entries are grayed out

What should happen :
menu entries should remain normally available

Steps to reproduce :
1 - open a new writer document
2 - write a bit a text and create a new ligne
3 - go to menu Insert > Objet > Formula
4 - Unselect the formula by clic elsewhere on the text (no need to edit the formula)
5 - go to menu Insert : all menu lignes (or sub-menus) are grayed out except "Image"

How to have the menu again :
1 - save the document
2 - close it
3 - reopen it
(! once this did not work, I had to close and reopen the session)

OS : Ubuntu 12.04 64bits

Tests :
- Falling back to libreoffice : no problem on this version
- Reinstalling libreoffice (from ppa) after completely removing version 3.5 and with default parameters (~/.config/libreoffice was erased) : problem is back again

However, other people with the same OS and libreoffice version do not have this problem.

-> problem has no relation with my personnal libreoffice settings
-> problem is on version not with the version shipped with the OS
-> problem occur on my system, not on some other people system with similar installation

The bug is related to the integration of libreoffice into Unity's global menu.

See: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/1073266

Therefore I close it as not_our_bug here.
