Description chrys87@web.de 2015-12-09 16:33:06 UTC

There is n "Edit Document" button on read only documents. this is not tab focusable. I m blind and cant use the mouse so I cannot use this button. 
Its not so critical because i can save the document befor editing, but it would nice if i could use it. There is also no shortcut to activate the button (i.e. alt + o for _OK).

1. Open a read only document with writer (maybe a E-Mail Attachment in thunderbird)
2. try to activate easilie.

i was not able to activate the "edit document" button

it is tab focusable and has a shortcut.

I use the most current LO (5.0.3) on Archlinux wiht GTK3 Backend.

cheers :).

Added needsDevEval so developers can consider this for an easy hack.

There is a shortcut for it: Ctrl+Shift+M

Confirmed. I changed the summary.

Seems bug 89688 was addressing the opposite side of this same argument (that the infobar shouldnt be in focus when opening), so this issue needs to be further discussed so both types of users will be happy with the behaviour.
