Happening in LO 188.8.131.52 but it happened in previous version[s] as well. It doesn’t happen all the time, but often enough to be a time waster. As well as being program hostile behavior.
Which functionality are you talking about?
Right click -> Hide on LibreOffice icon in macOS Dock pane?
… and this is a functionality of macOS’s window manager / desktop manager. Hence it is not clear how LibreOffice is involved in this.
actually, I access it another way. should have checked before I answered so blithely. I click on “libre office” next to the apple in the upper left. the 4th item down in the ensuing menu is “hide libre office.” I highlight & click on that. the application then blinks off as if I have been successful, and then in the succeeding moment it returns to the screen as if I had never done so. then I do it again. then it does the same thing. sometimes it takes only 1 or 2 tries to finally hide it. sometimes it can take 6 or 7. even after I completely close libre office and restart, sometime the malbehavior persists.
From my test just now, this is somehow related to setting
LibreOffice -> Preferences -> LibreOffice -> View -> Category: Graphics Output -> Option: [ ] Use OpenGL for all rendering. This time disabling this option causes the problem to appear more often, while in almost all other cases, setting this option may cause a problem. So I suggest to test using Option: [x] Use OpenGL for all rendering` for a while (disable as soon as this causes blurry fonts/blurry rendering on your system).
In addition, I never could reproduce the behavior, if using shortcut `CMD+H` (aka `⌘+H`) to hide LibreOffice. Tested using LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 on macOS 10.15.6 (Catalina).
thank you. I will take a run at it that way.
even with the OGL all rendering option set, the malbehaviopr re-erupted. CMD+H however works every time so far. problem (tentatively) solved. will report back if it somehow unsolves itself.
