[gtk3] [wayland] calc: suggestions for typing functions blocks keyboard and is misplaced
Last modified: 2016-03-01 10:04:23 EST
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0. log in to a gnome+wayland session
1. make sure you are running libreoffice with Gtk+ 3.x
2. open any Libreoffice Calc document
3. edit any cell
4. type "=S" or anything else which has autocompletion, probably everything starting with "="
In "Formula Bar" you see the function you just started typing. You'll get a hint for function names. This hint is misplaced, most times right outside the right top corner. It blocks keyboard input in the same ways X11 menus used to grab all input.
function suggestion should not block input and should be placed right below the "Formula Bar" Toolbar.
placement of windows is "tricky" under wayland (in f23 anyway), which is why I've replaced these types of windows with native GtkPopovers in f24+rawhide.
