Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2015-09-01 10:58:25 UTC
it does this because it has the gtk DIALOG hint set. And gnome-shell doesn't decorate such things with the window manager X (e.g. the other dialogs like format->character etc)

In earlier versions it was a modeless dialog and those have no parents, and so the DIALOG hint isn't set in the no-parent case and so gnome-shell gave it an X like the toplevel application windows themselves.

But as a modeless dialog multiple ones can be opened and a bunch of things crash, e.g. tdf#72587

Right clicking the title bar gives the usual menu for closing it, so its not critical in that sense, and whacking esc closes it too.

I guess the important thing is to have an obvious means to close the window. So I suggest I add a "close" button to the dialog like every other one in libreoffice has.

dev_ack+ on the assumption that adding a Close button to the bottom of the dialog like the other similar ones is a sufficient fix
