Reassigned to SBA.
Comment 2 andreschnabel 2008-11-21 20:16:47 UTC
confirmed with OOo 3.0 on Linux and windows.

This is not only a writer issue but also happens in Calc. Seems as all non-modal
dialogs are opened behind the document window and are not accessible.

This even may lead to situations wehre you only can kill OOo:
- Open Calc and enter Fullscreen view
- Ctrl+F2 to insert a formula (or Alt+I, F)

-> function wizard is opened but not visible and cannot be closed anymore

issue 92562 seems to have the same root cause

Confirmed on OOo-dev 3.1.0 (OOO310m4), Win XP.

Appears to be a regression, as the same bug (CTRL+F dialog not visible in full
screen) was certainly present in June 2007, as it prompted me to write my first
macro (last post:

Macro let the find dialogue be visible, but no longer.

Appears to be linked to issue 87897.
Comment 6 malte_timmermann 2009-12-03 11:14:35 UTC
General Issue, not Accessibility.

Can lead to data loss (but not very likely, because of this special mode) => OOo
3.3. (As discussed with MD)

cd: Too late to fixed for OOo 3.3. Must be shifted to next release.
Comment 8 Martin Hollmichel 2011-03-15 21:00:19 UTC
set target to 3.x since not release relevant for 3.4 release.
