Libre office writer focus on "paste special"

Asked by Mitch Claborn

Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit
Build ID: 350m1(Build:2)

With the "Styles and Formatting" dialog open as a separate window, when I do a "Paste Special" into the current document, immediately after the paste, focus goes to the "Styles and Formatting" window. Seems to me that focus should return to the document. Has anyone else seen this? Is it a bug or a feature?

Hi Mitch

I think it is a bug. To create a bug report you need to do this command in a terminal

ubuntu-bug libreoffice

and, when the information has been collected, click Send. That will then take you through creating a bug report here in Launchpad. You can then link this question to the bug number.

You may be asked to create an upstream bug report with LibreOffice. You can do that from LibreOffice with Help > Send Feedback... which will send you to the LibreOffice Bugzilla.

If you need any further help, please ask
