Alt-KAT doesn't work when opening using double click

Postby apdobaj » Thu Dec 01, 2011 8:06 pm

Using Ubuntu 11.10 and LibreOffice 3.4.4.

Alt-KAT (key above tab) is a great way to switch between instances of a single application. In LibreOffice, this works if and only if the second or subsequent instances of the application are invoked from the LibreOffice menu bar (file->Open) rather than double clicking inside of Nautilus. I don't know if this is a bug with LibreOffice or with Ubuntu, but I would like to point it out so that somebody can address it. Thank you.

I've also found that if you "snap" (pardon the windows terminology) a Writer window to the left or right you lose the minimize/maximize icons. I suggest this bug is related to LibreOffice menu not conforming to the Unity standard.

Have you reported it on Ubuntu - Launchpad Bugs?

Are you intent on using Unity? Have you tried Gnome or KDE? If so do you get the same problem?
