Description Ralf 2013-04-09 22:45:21 UTC
Problem description: 
Please look at the attached screenshot. The opened text box has no button to finish an action. It is not possible to close the text box nor to do anything else with LO Draw. Since I need the text box for editing, I can't use LO Draw at all.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Place a rectangle on the worksheet
2. Select the rectange
3. Context menu > Text

Current behavior:
Cannot close the text box. LO Draw is blocked completely.

Expected behavior:
Need to close the text box

Honestly, I do not expect that you are able to reproduce this behaviour. But I would like to know how to solve the issue.

Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release

Comment 3 Ralf 2013-06-21 16:35:34 UTC
Hello Thomas,
If you right-click an object on the sheet, then the context menu opens. If you select "Text", then the related window opens (see attachment). At the bottom of the Text-window, you can see 4 buttons: OK, Cancel, Help, Reset. After using this window several times during one session, these buttons simply disappeared - Nothing was left to click at to leave that window, and I had to kill Draw to get out of this tool. Unfortunately, after re-invoking Draw, these buttons did not appear again at all. I had no idea, what to do in this situation.
Meanwhile I upgraded to version I just reopened Draw and it seems to operate again normally (as you can see at the attachment).
So, regarding my side, I do not request you to investigate this issue any further.
