No, using LO 5.2.2 I simply open Writer and

1. selected the listbox icon from the Form Controls toolbar then
2. clicked and dragged the outline of a listbox on the page
3. (as mentioned previously)

Are you perhaps using the wizard instead?

Yes, when I go into Design Mode then Insert | Form Controls | List Box, it brings up the wizard after I draw the list box. It also does that if I I use the Form Controls toolbar. Since the dialogue pops up in each case, it's not obvious that you can simply cancel it without also losing the form control.

So I guess my real complaint is about the wizard being rather the opposite - something that gets in the way of a simpler process.
