Description louqle 2012-01-18 03:26:42 UTC
1. new a calc
2. click Insert->hyperlink
3. select "New Document" in hyperlink dialog, then choose "Edit now" radio
4. select a file type then enter a file name, then click "Apply"
5. a new application is created regarding to the file type selected in above step.

Hide current calc, you will find the new created document also calls out "Hyperlink" dialog, with "Document" highlighted and each fields are blank..

I think this Hyperlink dialog may have a wrong parent window, it should be the refreshed one of the original calc.

Verified and reproduced.

I did some tests with with "AOO 4.0.1   – German UI / German locale  [Rev. 1524958 2013-09-20 11:40:29]" on  German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", “historic”  4.0  User Profile used for all  predecessor versions, and I think we are talking about following problem:
1. Open New Calc Document from AOO Start Center
2. Menu 'Insert -> Hyperlink - Document-Pane:New Document - Radiobutton:Edit Now
   - Filetype: Spreadsheet - Filename: "New.ods"  [Apply]
  > As expected New empty Calc document "New.ods" will be opened
  > Unexpectedly for "New.ods" 'Edit Link' dialog will be opened

Additional info:
(a) This problem is not limited to Calc, Same in Writer, Draw
(b) Same behavior already with OOo 1.1.5 
(c) Still Reproducible with server installation of "AOO 4.1.0-Dev – 
    English  UI / English locale - [AOO410m1(Build:9750)  -  
    Rev. 1546757 - 2013-12-02]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)",
    own separate user profile.
(d) I did not see the problem during a quick test with
    Lotus Symphony Release 3.0.1 Revision 20120110.2000
(e) Still the same with LibO 4.1.3
(f)  Already reproducible with  Pre-3.4.0 (OOo 3.3.0), but because of crippled  
     Version selector (Bug 123063) no useful info can be contributed

Thee problem is not limited to particular proceeding as per original report, but a general Hyperling Dialog issue:

21. Form AOO Start Center open New Spreadsheet
22. Click 'Edit Hyperlink' Icon in Standard Toolbar
    > Hyperlink Dialog appears
23. Select 'Internet' in Hyperlink Dialog
24. Arrange Document to left half of screen and Hyperlink Dialog in Document
25. Menu 'File -> New -> Text Document
    > New writer Document will be opened, Hyperlink Dialog shown
26. Arrange Document to right half of screen, Hyperlink Dialog in Document
27. Select 'New Document' in Hyperlink Dialog
28. Toggle between both documents, you will see that both have their own
    Hyperlink dialog

(g) So if Hyperlink dialog is opened when new (or existing) document will be
    opened newly opened document will show it's own Hyperlink dialog immediately
    after document has become opened
(h) also other dialogs (Insert Field, ..) show this behavior
(i) Has been rated as "not an issue" for "Bug 102633 - Hyperlink-Dialog 
    visible when opening new document", but I can't understand the reasoning
(k) Seems related to or DUP of "Bug 20276 - Documents will be opened with 
    open hyperlink dialog window "
