Description norbert2 2004-04-26 11:16:30 UTC
Please ...

- make sure that the OOo-GUI is NOT opened in full-screen

- open any new OOo-document, for example a writer-document

- make sure that some contentent is in the clipboard

- press down the left mouse key over the paste-button and hold it down:
A menu has opened where the user can select a format to paste.

- Move the mouse up out of the OOo-GUI while still holding down the mouse-button

- release the mouse-button:

The menu stays open!
When releasing the mouse button within the OOo-GUI, it is closed.

Please explain the problem for me again.  There is an "escape" for mouse clicks
in error that has been around since the first GUI desktops -- you click or
Ctrl-click or Alt-Click and find you've made a mistake.  Now if you release the
mouse you've got a problem.  The solution was to enable you to move the cursor
out of the "clickable" area and then release it at which point the click is not
executed.  This sounds like what you are complaining about, but as it's standard
throughout the computer industry, I seriously doubt that anyone would ever want
to change it.

Or did you have something else in mind.

I mean another problem:

The mentioned menu is only open while holding the mouse down. That's OK.

But If the mouse pointer is moved out of the OOo-GUI with hold down button and 
the button is released outside of the OOo-GUI, this menu stays open!

SBA: Confirming this issue. But as soon as I click anywhere in the OO window,
the box vanishes. I see not a real hinderance in anybodys daily work. One may
even consider this a feature (because the user likes to read another document
describing the different paste options while having them in view :-)
Prio set to P5, target set to OOo later. Since this happens in all applications,
component changed to framework. Reassigned to TM.

TM->SSA: As talked via phone,... please have a look. Problem occurs with other
button related menus too (eg. "New").
