          Priority: P3
            Bug ID: 121115
          Assignee: ooo-issues@incubator.apache.org
           Summary: Opening a CSV file with several OO windows already
                    open causes Text Import box to appear in unexpected
                    location
          Severity: normal
        Issue Type: DEFECT
    Classification: Application
                OS: Windows 7
          Reporter: nathan@searchtempest.com
          Hardware: PC
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: AOO 3.4.1
         Component: open-import
           Product: spreadsheet

If several Openoffice windows are open, and a CSV file is opened independently,
ie, through windows explorer, one of the Openoffice windows - apparently at
random, but I assume there's some pattern to it - shows a text import box, but
does not take focus, nor does its taskbar button blink to show an event.  As a
result, one must click through each window (assuming they are overlapping) to
find the one with the Text Import box, to finish opening the CSV file.

Instead, the Text Import box shown when opening a completely separate, new
file, should not be tied to any particular pre-existing openoffice window, but
should rather be opened and focused independently in response to user action
(opening the file).  At the least, if it must be arbitrarily tied to an
existing instance, that instance should be brought to the foreground so the
user doesn't have to go hunting.
