I'm on Fedora 23, Gnome 3.18.2
Basically if I have spreadsheet open on Desktop 4 and I open a csv (using 'xdg-open' or Double Clicking) on Desktop 2 then both spreadsheets end up on Desktop 2.
My guess is the CSV options window where you select what delimiter to use and has a preview of the file, is a subwindow of the last selected Calc window. Therefore to open the csv on a different desktop the whole window is moved to the current desktop and the options are displayed. If you open an ods document on a different desktop this does not happen.
1. Switch to Virtual Desktop 1
2. Open a ods/csv/xls/etc
3. Switch to Virtual Desktop 2
4. Open Files
5. Browse to where csv is stored
6. Double click on csv
7. The spreadsheet that was on Virtual Desktop 1 is now on Virtual Desktop 2
Just an annoyance. Thanks
Not reproducable with LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Unity.
Maybe not a LO Bug?
Maybe the same root cause as bug 95630? Do you think this could be closed as duplicate or..?
It definitely sounds related to bug 95630, just the opposite behavior (instead of you having to go to the other workspace the window is brought to the current one). I don't know anything about Gnome and UI development so I will leave it up to you guys to close/mark as duplicate. Thanks.
Not reproducible for me with Ubuntu 16.04 64 bits (Unity) and LO 5.4.1 from PPA.
Best regards. JBF
Jay posted some interesting results in bug 95630. It seems the latest GNOME/GTK3 works fine and other DEs are a mixed bag.
damonhttp: are you on Fedora 25 now? Does the problem still occur?
