In LibreOffice Calc when I get into a deleting dialogue, e.g. when deleting a single cell or a selection of unsequential columns with ctrl -, my keyboard stops working. To get it back I need to defocus the LibreoOffice Calc window and then refocus it back.

This also happens when opening the About in Help.

Not much of a hassle (once I figured out how to get it back) but should be fixed.

Installation details: Version: Build ID: 6.2.2-2 CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.19; UI render: default; VCL: kde5; running on Manjaro based on Arch.

I'm on Arch w/ GNOME 3.32 and I don't have this bug. And yes, it is not the right place to discuss about it. If I were you, I will open a bug in the Manjaro bugtracker...

Yeah, I don't believe it's related to Manjaro per se. More probably it's a Libreoffice issue with the KDE window manager. Like the recent issue with not being able to copy stuff from KDE's clipboard, which is now fixed. I'll close this and post it on their bugzilla.

Don't know if it's related, but have also unresponsive Calc Cells, sometimes to change focus doesn't hel - have to restart LO;

I ve seen some suggestions to anjust available memory, but don't find this option in new Version of LO. Am also on KDE Manjaro, 6.2.2-2
