Summary0013104: random switching between open documents
DescriptionSometimes when performing actions, scribus switches between open documents, i.o.w the one I'm working on is put to the background and another one comes up front. Of course the action is not performed.
When taking the document I'm working on to the front and repeating the action, everything works.
TagsNo tags attached.

Can you provide a step-by-step way to reproduce the behavior? Thanks Alma

I actually can't as it appears randomly, although pretty frequently. Pretty much every time I have two or more documents open, at some point scribus switches focus. Last time it was when I changed the thickness of a line, but I could not reproduce it the next time. Also, since yesterday (Update to Plasma 5.3.1), Scribus crashes when trying to open a recent document...

I found a reproducable case: Open the first document, open another document (via "recent documents". Press F2 to open the palette, click twice on "drop shadow" quickly - voila, suddenly the first document is in the front.

It doesn't even be quickly, and any tab, just click it twice, and the first document comes to the front.

What version of Scribus are you running?

1.5.0 from the ubuntu repositories. I can try to reproduce with 1.5.1 svn from the Scribus friends ppa as well if you like.

Alma, can you try to reproduce on 1.5.1 please ?

i think that i have a guess on what is happening...

but i cannot reproduce with the 1.5.0 dmg

if you an item selected in the other document, when you apply a change to the item it will focus on the selected item on the other document.

1.5.0 correctly disables the properties palette, when no item is selected in the current document.
the version almatlust is using might not do that (i somehow recall it being a past bug...)

Yes, it's still there... although it can take up to four clicks on different tabs until it switches to the first document.

Just checked. It does not matter whether you have selected any object in the first document or not. Also, the properties palette is disabled when nothing is selected.

Of course you have to select something in the second document to be able to use the properties palette there... ;-)

alma, do you mind merging any relevant info from this ticket in to 0012204 and then I'll close this bug.

Kunda, I think I have added all relevant information to 0012204, you can close this one. (btw, how do you insert the link to a different bug?)

Thank Alma

put a # in front of the different bug number, 0012204
if you want to reference a thread comment, put a ~ in front of the specific comment number, so you're previous comment was 38150 then adding ~ in front of it produces 0013104:0038150
