Description pavelz 2015-11-06 15:05:52 UTC
After opening readonly document, the shortcuts are not working properly.

Common procedure is to open an e-mail attachment (ODT file) and press Ctrl+F to search - the file is opened as readonly and the shortcut does not work. Maybe it is some kind of focus issue, because after clicking in the text area of the document, the shortcut starts to work. It similar with Ctrl+H shortcut to find and replace, while Ctrl+O shorcut works seamlessly with readonly document.

This bug occurs in Writer, not in Calc.

Hi Pavelz,

thanks for reporting. I can confirm the behaviour.
Looks as if the focus is somewhere in the side bar..
Hitting F6 once is enough to put it in the document.

I set this to new.
