Description Albrecht Müller 2014-07-13 13:16:04 UTC
Created attachment 102699 [details]
Example file to show the effect.

How to reproduce:
Select some non empty cell, i.e. one that shows some content in the input line. Press CRTL+F3 to open the “manage names” dialog box. The input line becomes blank. Close the dialog box. The content of the input line reappears.

As the input line may contain information relevant for the work with the “manage names” dialog box, this triggers unnecessary closing and opening of this dialog. This is especially bad in conjunction with the fact, that reopening the dialog resets all size settings which may be necessary to see its content. 

Expected behaviour:
The content of the selected cell should be visible while the “manage names” dialog box is open.

Observed with Libre Office Version: 4.2.5.2 and Windows 7
