Description usera58 2014-01-26 14:06:59 UTC
Problem description: The program repeatedly greys out then becomes active, then again greys out ect. This happens repeatedly.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Set 'save auto recovery information' to every 1 minute (from the settings menu [Load/Save]) + with 'automatically save the document' 
2. open a new spreadsheet without saving it
3. continue to use/input data into the spreadsheet where ever at your will
4. after the 1 minute is up, the program will produce a cycle of grey outs (I think its because it doesn't know where to save)

+ (on a separate note, once a comment has been inserted into a cell, and then when I try to hover over it.. it shows an empty comment box.

Current behaviour: Program goes in to a grey out cycle for a while

Expected behaviour: Asks user to choose a save destination so it doesn't misbehave due to it not knowing what to do with the document without a save location.

Operating System: Windows 8
Version: release

Priority highest is reserved for MABs, please see: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/MAB on when a bug qualifies for that.

Thus keeping this on priority high.

I don't experience this issue in LibO (Windows 7).

I set the 'save autorecovery information' to every 1 minute and checked the 'automatically save the document' too.

I waited for 6-7 minutes. Everything works fine.

I guess it solved, but you should check as well and it works fine you can put to 'resolved' this bug.

Agreeing with comment 3 - I didn't see this problem anymore either, so marking as resolved - worksforme.
