After upgrading to LibreOffice 5.3 if I open a file with macros, the security warning dialogue opens below existing opened windows. So each time I have to minimise these opened windows to click enable or disable windows. Any workaround?. This happens only if LibreOffice is already running (ie another file is open in LO)

Edit: Bug already reported.

Have tried this on Linux Mint 18 using LO v5.3.1.2 and in each case the message appeared in the foreground. The documents used were Base, Calc and Writer files all containing macros.


May be of note: I can set a document(s) to Always on Top. This is an OS setting not a LO setting. In this case the message for another document can be below. If multiple documents have this setting I can bring any to the foreground.
