Description V Stuart Foote 2014-12-08 21:23:15 UTC
On Windows 7 sp1 64-bit, and Linux 64-bit (Fedora 20) with current builds of master, 4.4.0beta2+, beta1+ and 4.4.0 alpha1+

Have a keyboard navigation and a11y issue with the Sidebar Properties Tray in the Paragraph panel.

No selection can be made with cursor/enter key from the drop down list opened with the Line Spacing button.

This functions correctly with the 4.3 branch.

Bibisect results
It was OK through:
Build ID: d9473f25380c627966b4406cc4cdfaafcf44bc37
TinderBox: Win-x86@51-TDF, Branch:MASTER, Time: 2014-11-03_04:24:26

but goes bad by
Build ID: 3c58f0768049718fae3d47d5ebfa6c7485ad52b1
TinderBox: Win-x86@39, Branch:master, Time: 2014-11-05_06:43:51

So, http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/log/?qt=range&q=d9473f25380c627966b4406cc4cdfaafcf44bc37..3c58f0768049718fae3d47d5ebfa6c7485ad52b1

Kind of looks like http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=b59b183ce3b84bec6722110ee80d6158b6a60377 caused the regression.

Also affecting the Line Spacing split button on the Formatting toolbar. No keyboard movement there either.
Comment 2 Joel Madero 2015-01-05 17:18:39 UTC
Adding bibisected to whiteboard as bisected keyword is a subset of bibisected whiteboard.
