Description Stéphane Aulery 2016-03-02 12:46:06 UTC
Hello, there.

I use 2 screens, one on the right with the workspaces and the Activities bar,
and one on the left with no special features. I have a strange problem: when,
in Calc on the left screen, I make a right-click, open a menu item, even the
contextual one, the right screen switches to another one, which is really
annoying when one tries to transfer data between Calc and another window. I
then have to go on the right screen and retrieve the first workspace. This
happens on virtually any files, and the workspace switched on is often, if not
always, the one which contains the window from which Calc was started, either a
Web browser or Nautilus; Calc getting the focus is not enough to trigger the
bug, one have to act in it to trigger the bug. This bug has been present at
least since Wheezy.

I will provide any file requested on demand and will try to be available if
some tests are required.

Regards.

Hi,

Please test with a currently supported version of LibreOffice. 4.4 has been EOl for a long time, 5.1 is currently supported. Thank you!

I made a request to the reporter.

> 4.4 has been EOl for a long time

Why??? A version of one year for which you no longer support?

You really think normal people enjoy reinstall each version right out?

our rolling release schedule is not going to change: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleasePlan

A year of life only for the stable version is far too little to fix bugs. Is not surprising that the bugtracker is full as an egg. How do you think people have time to report bugs and retest the latest version because you do not support those they use?

I understand although it should be out of the doldrums of OO, but it's too fast. Especially LO is an essential production tool for businesses. No reasonable support, not business.

Again, none of this is going to change.

The problem seems to have vanished with version 5.0.5.
