Description Antanas 2015-08-14 14:22:25 UTC
This bug I noticed only in one application – LibreOffice, therefore I'm writing here. In paralell I'm suspecting Unity/Ubuntu fault (and filled a bug report in bugs.launchpad.net). During three days there is no catch. 

While inserting a symbol from the third keyboard level using combinations with AltGr (right Alt) in Search/Replace fields all previously entered symbols are deleted (BTW I'm using Lithuanian standard layout, but switching to other layouts makes no difference).

Reproduction steps:
Open desired LibreOffice document,
hit Ctrl+F or Ctrl+H ("Search" or "Search and Replace"),
Type some chars,
Press AltGr (right Alt) key.

the text in the field is selected. Entering next char removes all previously entered characters.

Sometimes the bug appears not right after user login but 1 or few minutes later.

System setup:
LibreOffice – tested with several versions (including latest fresh).
Unity 7.2.5
Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS 32 bit

In nearest environment several PCs suffer from this bug. 
Only one PC with similar setup doesn't have the bug. The only software difference it have – Ubuntu OS is 64-bit.

Hi Antanas,

Thanks for your report here!

I did the steps in 4.4.5 on Ubuntu 32 bits and do not have the problem.. SO sorry, I can't confirm

Which LibO version are you using?

Could not repro on Win 7 & Linux, LibO 5.0.1.

I moved to another town and have no more access to those machines, which suffered from this bug. Afterwards I didn't noticed this on machines I'm working on (maybe because I don't use Canonical's Unity anymore).
