After double-clicking (selecting) a CSV file in a Windows 7 Pro x64 Explorer window, about 75% of the time, LibreOffice's spreadsheet's initial text import dialog box pushes itself to the back, hiding behind other open windows. This is quite exasperating.
It should always push itself to the front.
(Apache OpenOffice has the same problem. I explicitly switched to LibreOffice in the hope that this problem wouldn't be present. But it is.)
I tried reproducing this on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and didnt have much luck. Did this happen in previous versions like 4.1.6 or 4.2.4?
Sorry: I don't know about previous versions. I only started using LibreOffice this morning, after getting so frustrated with OpenOffice doing the same thing. I've only recently been doing a lot with .CSV files.
(Having to respond with "OK" to that same text format query every time I open a .CSV is its own frustration, since I'm doing it so frequently. They're actually data files generated by analysis programs. Converting them to binary formats every time would be even worse.)
FWIW, I almost could be convinced that the "double click" used to select the file is being interpreted by the system as a "triple click" (with the 3rd click pulling the Explorer window to the front) except that I have not seen any other indications that such a thing (button mouse bouncing) is happening.
I'm using a Microsoft 5-button Intellimouse.
Well if you could possibly test it with another mouse, that would be helpful.
Does it happen only if libreoffice is already running? (In that case it's probably a duplicate of bug 32935)
You can close this ticket.
The problem was indeed in the mouse and went away when I replaced it. :(
I'm very sorry to have bothered you.
Glad we were able to solve your problem. :)
