Description skelem 2007-02-06 18:06:52 UTC
I'm using Gnome on SuSE 10.0, Workspace Switcher 2.12.0. 1. Start openoffice Writer on a workspace. An empty document is shown. 2. Select File/Recent Documents/<a document that you've edited before, preferably large so that this step takes at least 5 seconds). The Loading Document progress bar in the already-open document window shows the document loading. 3. Switch workspaces. (control-Alt up or down arrow works for me.) Try to do something useful in workspace #2 while the document is supposedly loading on the first workspace. 4. When the document has finished loading, the window is displayed on the current workspace instead of workspace #1 where I opened it. The progress bar on the already-open window implies that that's where the document will be opened. Switching back to workspace #1 shows that the original empty document is no longer there! It's okay that the empty document is not there, but I would expect the newly-opened document to be in its place on workspace #1.

This is bigger problem. Try following: 1) Open a document on workspace 1 2) Now switch to workspace 2 and open a terminal. Try opening non existing file (ooffice some-file-which-is-not-here.xls) 3) You are accidentally switched back to workspace 1 with the message "Document doesn't exist..." Or sometimes, i do something with one document and accidentally, all my opened documents skips to current workspace. Handling workspaces in OO.org is really horrible :(

This is so annoying and nobody cared for 6 months?
Comment 4 jbf.faure 2008-02-24 19:20:36 UTC
I do not reproduce the problem described by skelem with OOo 2.4.0 RC1 under Kubuntu 6.06 : when the document has finished loading, the window is displayed on the workspace #1 but the view switch suddenly to workspace #1. If I was typing another document in workspace #2, it loses the focus. I am not sure it is a defect but it may be annoying. On the other hand I reproduce the behaviour described by jakubsuchy, but it seems to me coherent with the previous one.

@skelem: Still a problem for you?
Comment 6 Rainer Bielefeld 2013-08-05 08:14:23 UTC
Closing issue due to Comment 4 and reporter's inactivity. @reporter: Please feel free to reopen this issue if you find out that the problem still exists in the latest release of AOO and if you can provide requested additional information.
Comment 7 skelem 2013-08-07 07:32:38 UTC
Yes, it still happens. Pardon my delay in responding within 2 weeks of you asking me if it was still a problem. After six years of inactivity, I had given up hope.
