Dash to dock

Bug Description

This bugs happens if you:

1. Open app indicator menu (top right);
2. Move your cursor to the right monitor;

Now you can't go back. The only way is pressing ESC to close app indicator menu so that you can go back to the first monitor.

This only happens when ubuntu-dock autohide is on.

Maybe it can be useful:

The indicator menu is not related to the 'ubuntu-dock' extension so I'll move this...

Ok vanvugt, thank you. I thought it was related because disabling "autohide" the problem goes away.

Hmm, maybe?... Can you reproduce the issue with any other Gnome Shell popovers?

Sidney Lins (sdlins) wrote :

Yes, I tested and I can reproduce the issue if I open any popovers, for example: keyboard language, calendar or activities.
