Description tzp 2008-11-20 16:30:09 UTC
Debian Linux, icewm:

With OpenOffice 3 a new annoying behaviour appeared:

When editing a document, if the cursor is moved to the beginning of a heading
line, the Bullets and numbering little window pops up, taking away the keyboard
focus from the main doc. window. This is very annoying because one must click to
the main window with the mouse to be able to continue editing.

Writer should prevent this by explicitly setting the keyboard focus to the main
window after popping up the little window.

MRU->PL: under icewm all Toolbars will grab focus when they appear. Two samples
are, if you start a numbered list or insert a table in OOo Writer. Also when
traveling with the cursor in such paragraphs, the toolbar will get the focus.
Comment 2 philipp.lohmann 2008-11-21 11:36:18 UTC
This certainly sucks, but OOo tells the WM explicitly that it doesn't want the
focus set to the toolbar unless it sets it there itself. But what's one more WM
to fight against ... I'll see if we can add just another WM workaround.
Comment 3 tzp 2009-01-12 16:17:03 UTC
What about making the automatic popup feature optional ? (I.e. settable in some
GUI related Options tab)
That way we could be back to the good old 2.4 behaviour.

Although the problem persists, I just found a workaround for it:

Drag the toolbar to the OOo application window, to dock it.
The text will not loose focus again, as the dialog will remain docked.

Thanks for the hint, this really works.
