Bug ID: 1143129
Summary: Qt breaks libreoffice calc Alt+Drag
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: Current
Hardware: x86-64
OS: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: KDE Applications
Assignee: opensuse-kde-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxx

like Gecko) Falkon/3.1.0 Chrome/73.0.3683.105 Safari/537.36
Build Identifier:

LO uses drag'n'drop instead of cut'n'paste to move a row or column; default
behavior leaves a hole at the source ond overwrites data at the destination but
holding Alt changes the operation to cut from source and insert at destination.

But under KDE, holding the Alt key does nothing. Turns out, if you remove
package libreoffice-qt and install libreoffice-gnome, the Alt+Drag function
works correctly, but then LO loses the benefits of Qt integration: It looks
funny and opening a file from within the application fails to present
directories at the top.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open libreoffice calc and populate some rows, say with numbers 1-4.
2.Highlight row 2 by clicking on the left side.
3.Click any part of the highlighted row and drag down a level, then release
mouse button, to see default behavior.
4.Repeat while holding Alt; actually, only need to hold Alt at moment of
releasing mouse button. See that default behavior unchanged.
5.Remove package libreoffice-qt, install package libreoffice-gnome, and repeat
steps above. See the difference?

Expected Results:
Behavior would be consistent, Alt+Drag would work with libreoffice-qt installed
just as it does with libreoffice-gnome.

Tested on both Tumbleweed and live USB of Leap 15.1, same behavior on both.
Note: Changing the modifier key for window acton in KDE system settings, from
Alt to Meta, makes no difference. Tried with KDE themes openSUSE and Oxygen.
