insert sheet dialog not returning

When I attempt to create a new worksheet with the “Insert sheet…” menu option I make my selections (insert after current sheet, etc.) but after browsing for the ‘from file’ and selecting, nothing useful happens. The dialog loses its “OK” button. It’s as though the file selected by browsing never gets returned.


Is there a workaround for this?

Many thanks.

Is there an operating system information?

Yes, Debian GNU/Linux bullseye/sid (testing); linux kernel version 5.2.0-3-amd64.

Since this is a development release of Debian 11, I wouldn’t expect everything to work fine. There are two suggestions:

  • File a bug report with Debian
  • Try to use LibreOffice dialogs for file picking (Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> General -> Option: [x] Use LibreOffice dialogs) as a workaround.

PS: Cannot confirm behavior on Debian 10.1 (my Debian test system).

I have the same issue on Fedora 31 Kernel 5.3.11-300.fc31.x86_64; Libre Office Version: Build ID:
