Description June 2014-12-08 08:55:42 UTC
Hi there!

First of all, I would like to thank you so much for creating such a great application suite!

I am using LO under Linux Mint 17 Cinammon.

When I click any main menu (a drop-down menu), I am not able to move my focus on any other applications by using Alt+Tab key combination.

Is there any solution for this?

Thank you!

There does seem to be an inconsistency between windows and linux. On XP I tested this with and beta1 and I experienced no problems.

On Fedora 21 alpha 0 the problem is apparent. The problem is also present on

Thus changing status to NEW and maintaining the linux platform. I am unable to test on Mac.

This is not a LibreOffice bug. This is actually how most Linux DEs have historically behaved when opening a menu or a pop-up, try it with other apps, such as Mint’s file manager, it’ll be the same. File a bug against your window manager/desktop environment.
