Review request for Calligra.


At them moment there is a problem with actions from tools which duplicate standard actions in applications. An example are select all /deselect standard actions. There are calligra applications which create these in their view classes to have support to select/deselect shapes. However some tools like the text tool do have these actions too.
When for instance the text tool gets activated, all its actions are enabled which causes the select all action conflict with that of the application (they have the same standard shortcut).
This patch fixes that as it will disable any action from the application during the activation of the tool with an conflicting action. When disabling the tool again, the application action is enabled again.
That way selecting all works in the text tool again and I could add working support for select all/deselect in the artistic text tool too.
