Description Samuel Mehrbrodt (allotropia) 2016-01-14 13:10:20 UTC
When changing properties of a control in the dialog designer, the changed property is only updated when the field loses focus.

This leads to unsaved values in some situations (this happened to me some times).

Properties should be saved immediately when the field is changed.

Tools - Macros - Organize Dialogs.
Created a new one in the document, edited it.
Added ImageControl. Changed Tabstop to Yes and immediately saved file without losing focus.
Closed and reopened and Tabstop was still Yes.

If steps are not correct, please provide exact steps.

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.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
(5.2.5 or 5.3.0  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

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
