Description Dario 2013-09-01 01:02:21 UTC
Hi there,

 I am running LibreOffice 4.0.5 over a Kubuntu 13.04 amd64 box.

 I have been suffering a bug for quite long ... and I have finally committed to report it.

 Well, the background is ...  my main and unique machine is a 12.1 inches laptop. This is a small screen, every single chunk of the screen is 'gold'. 

 So some time ago I decided the LO 'Status bar' was not going to be shown. I know I am missing features, but after thoroughly thinking about the pros and the cons ... that was my choice.

 The problem arises when I am pasting TEXT ( it doesn't happen if I paste images ) from outwards LO (Firefox, Konsole, etc ... )  ... in these cases a solid 'Status Bar' gets drawn on the screen.

 As far as I remember I've been suffering such an annoying behaviour since the beginning of LO times in the hope the time would bring a fix ... but it seems the time doesn't bring anything ... so here is my bug report :-).

 Could you please have a look at that ???

 Thanks a lot !!!

Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: unspecified

This is how I am reproducing this problem now :

  1 -  Open LibreOffice Writer.    ( screenshot01.png )

  2 -  Go to Konsole ( you could take many other applications ).    ( screenshot02.png )

  3 -  Select some text from Konsole and copy it.    ( screenshot03.png )

  4 -  	Paste  the text over LibreOffice Writer.    ( screenshot04.png )

 You could take  screenshot05.png  as a summary.

 Hope that helps.

Steps to reproduce:
0. Disable View->Status bar
1. Copy something in Firefox
2. Paste into Writer
Expected: Status bar remains disabled
Actually: It becomes enabled

I confirm this bug is still present in version, and boy is it annoying! When I choose to hide the status bar, I don't expect to see it reappear at the first paste action.

The pasted text copied from another application, e.g. Goggle translate or Notepad++, makes the bar show up without being prompted.
Comment 10 phv 2021-11-04 13:46:41 UTC
Moreover, it's required to toggle the status bar on then off for this empty interface to hide again... until the next copy-paste action.

The solution would be bug 107495 in my opinion, but see also bug 124835
