Description Geoff 2014-12-02 01:42:10 UTC
To reproduce:

  - Open a document.

  - Hit Ctrl+Shift+J to toggle fullscreen mode.

  - Repeat once or twice to toggle back and forth.

  - Writer will lose focus after two or three Ctrl+Shift+J presses.

(If you have other documents open in the background, they'll get toggled to full screen!)

After a couple of switchings in 4.4.1, the window disappeared and only the "Full screen" button was visible. Yet, another Ctrl+Shift+J brought it back.

With 3.5.0 and 4.2.0, the terminal window used to launch them might sometimes be overlaid on top, but focus was not lost.

Let's request a bibisect.

Ubuntu 14.10 64-bit

LibreOffice 3.5.0rc3

Couldn't reproduce on Ubuntu 14.04 / lxde. Maybe window manager or timing dependent?

Interesting! This happens on my 32-bit machine but not my 64-bit machine. Both are running Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS

I don't think it's a timing issue because even counting 3 seconds between switches causes the problem.

I can reproduce this in Fedora 21 x64 + KDE

Pressing Ctrl+Shift+J multiple times soon yields the focus to a different window  (which starts reacting to the C+S+J)

I had to skip a couple at the end of the bibisect because of this message for and

$ ./opt/program/soffice --writer
no suitable windowing system found, exiting.

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
(5.1.6 or 5.2.3  https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and 
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave 
a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
