Description Cor Nouws 2014-07-08 13:54:54 UTC
Running Ubuntu.

In 4.3.0.x it happens very ofthe (50% of the time) that a child window such as Past Special; Insert Footnote, Save.. doesn't get the focus.

Not nice for key board addicts.

It happens with 4.2.5 too occasionally, but far far less.

I confirm this on (Linux 64bit Fedora)
Comment 2 Michael 2015-05-22 20:24:21 UTC
This bug also exists in bibisect-releases/libreoffice-

... however it is fixed in the 5.0 branch since approx Feb 28th. Below is a "reverse bibisect", where good means bad and bad means good. Meaning the fix occurred at or after 3d586d61d6a2b314783203d92fb0c1b62ea0e95e and before e3e95f97638ff4d2c230cbc1f560a148863fb7a5

Comment 3 Joel Madero 2015-05-23 03:46:36 UTC
So this is bibisected but not bisected - bisected means you identified the exact commit (not just a range). Updating.
Comment 4 Robinson Tryon (qubit) 2015-12-13 11:10:49 UTC Comment hidden (obsolete)
Comment 5 Caolán McNamara 2016-08-31 15:31:08 UTC
This is reported as broken in 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4, but reported as good in 5.0 series, all these series are no longer supported so closing this as fixed in 5-1
