Description freddi34 2013-07-15 13:23:06 UTC
Problem description: 
When inserting an endnote (menu: Insert → Foot-/Endnote), the document scrolls correctly to the end of the document, but looses focus when other dialogs are open (Styles and Formats). The "Styles and Formats" dialog steals focus so that the user has to click another time into the document before starting to type the endnote.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Click in the menu Format → Styles and Formats
2. Focus the main document and insert and click the menu Insert → Foot-/Endnote
3. Click OK in the endnote dialog
4. Start typing the foot-/endnote text

Current behavior:
No text is inserted because the document has no focus, the formats dialog gets focus instead.

Expected behavior:
The document gets focus again, because it was focussed before inserting the endnote.
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release

Working fine on OS X 10.8.4, so Linux only.
