Description Katarina Behrens (CIB) 2015-11-13 11:06:26 UTC
Calc > Sheet > Insert sheet from file ... 

Expected: file picker dialog appears right away

Actual: insert sheet dialog itself appears for a second (or longer, depending on how fast your machine is) and only then, the file picker pops up.

Not a big deal, just slightly unpolished user experience. Note to self: potential easy hack candidate

Hi Bubli,

I do not have a fast machine, and it's 6 yrs old.
For me it takes less than half a second (both the OS and the LibreOffice dialog).

Do you have some network stuff that demands updating/connecting in the dialog?

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
