Description arthur 2015-11-29 14:09:26 UTC
If I maximize LibreOffice and insert a table through the menu bar, the table window will open in a maximized state, and my menu bar will turn completely black. If I restore the LibreOffice window after inserting the table, the window will seemingly shift to another workspace with a totally black background.

I'm running on OS X El Capitan.

This issue also applies to presentation documents (and maybe others?), but it's worse because you can't restore the window after inserting the table.

If I insert a table while the window is restored, it works fine.

What if you disable this and restart LibreOffice: Tools - Options - LibO - View - Use OpenGL for all rendering

Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the information.

Confirming on

OSX 10.11.1

OpenGL is off by default on OSX. The problem is more than likely linked to LO's incorrect and incomplete full screen management - there are currently sveral other dialog bugs which show the same behaviour (although the shift to a new workspace is yet another additional quirk) when in fullscreen mode.

Tested with: Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 (15E2066) with LibreOffice Version:
Build ID: d3bf12ecb743fc0d20e0be0c58ca359301eb705f
CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Mac OS X 10.11.4; UI Render: default.

It seems using the native OSX full-screen behaviour (which now puts the zoomed in window in it's own space), is broken. The central issue is how LO handles Spaces on OSX.

Workaround: Double click on the window's title bar to maximise the window (like 'full screen' in earlier OSX versions).

This works for me now in the native full screen mode, no trouble inserting a table using the menu
